There is a Tex-Mex place near here that serves a fried egg on each enchilada.

In Germany it would be a pork cutlet, but the same idea.

Raw egg is popular as a dip for Japanese hot pots.

Most popluar in my opinion is rolled egg omelete (must-have in home made bento boxes), but they a little bit of soy sauce or fish broth, and sugar (similar to "tamago" you can get at Sushi Bars, although people usually do not make their omelette as sweet.)

I like eggs and I like egg yolks. I eat them in moderation, and count the calories.

I think this contraversy is a tempest in a teapot.

When I first was in London and went to get pizza... egg was an option... I asked someone how they do it.... I was told they just crack an egg on top of the pizza and it cooks... I never did get one....

I saw this on NBC news and they said that the history of eggs have been 'it is good for you, it is bad for you, it is good for you.... and now it is bad for you'....

I do not know for sure, but I do know that people have been eating eggs for many years and not dropping dead... and I can not believe they are 'as bad as smoking'.... if so, there would have been more evidence over the years...

Scrambled Pizza Eggs...

have been a staple for years. Beat 3 eggs in a bowl, fold in some grated mozzarella, quartered pepperoni slices, sliced black olives, sliced mushrooms, oregano & basil to taste. (Do NOT try to work in tomato or tomato sauce -- BIG mistake!) Serves two. Mmmm....

On one of the takes of this study I think they said that it was in excess of 4 eggs a day, which includes what you consume other than eggs that has egg in them...

One of my favorite dishes (in Europe) is Steak Tartare.

Depending on the receipie used, most times it will have a raw egg on top (which you stir into the dish).

I know what you're thinking , but I enjoy it anyway...

Oh, I thought eggs & cigarettes were being compared 1:1

That makes a huge difference. We usually have eggs once a week (Sunday mornings watching TCM or cartoons) -- maybe twice, so 5 eggs a week, all-inclusive, would be a lot for me.

My mom used to eat eggs almost everyday. She's 94 now and doesn't get them that often anymore. Of course there are people her age who smoke everyday, so I guess that doesn't prove anything. I eat eggs maybe once a week. I try and stick to health foods like sausage and buttered biscuits for breakfast.

I've read through most of this thread and I tend to agree with folks who eat eggs (and anything else) in moderation. I've made it through 67 years so far, I'm fairly trim for my height, eat a lot of fruit and veggies and get regular exercise. We eat a lot of fish and probably have meat 2 - 3 times per week at the most. Eggs on Sunday morning are part of the routine; maybe one egg during the intervening week. I like beer and wine and, on occasion, am immoderate in my consumption although I often go for weeks without having either. I might drop dead tomorrow, but even if I had a chance to come back from the dead I'm not sure that there's a lot I would change about my consumption habits.

4 eggs per week but the study was very flawed so don't get alarmed.

Every time I read of a "this food is bad for you" I recall the article about a group of scientists studying the effect of steak. They concluded that steaks are bad for you. They were so concerned about their findings that they ate the leftover steaks.

Now I'm gonna go make an omelet.

I average 2 to 3 eggs a day, sometimes a lot more. Wouldn't even consider reducing my intake.

I get them from truly free-range chickens locally, and it's incredible how much difference that makes. The shells are much thicker and stronger, and the yolks are a deep, rich golden color, not the pale yellow of supermarket eggs.

I've been eating lots of eggs all my life.

We have an omelet now and then, but we get most of our eggs in baked goods. I do a lot of baking. One batch of cookies or muffins = 2 eggs; and the whole batch is gone in 2 days at most.
