    things you will need:
    eggs
    omlette fixings (spinach, broccoli, cheese, etc)
    standard cooking pot filled 3/4 with water
    plastic ziploc bag.

    first boil the water
    chop everything up into nice little pieces (you could use your hands too)
    crack eggs into the ziploc
    beat them as usual
    add chopped ingredients
    close bag
    place the bag on its side into the boiling water

    it takes a little longer to cook (~10mins) but there is virtually no clean up and no added fat from butter/oil/etc. taste wise, its just as good

    the hell? buy a good no stick pan. preheat on level 7. crack eggs in pan, add whatever you want, cook til it hardens a little bit, flip one half over cook for a little while longer. slide off pan to plate. wipe pan with paper towel. done 5 min of your life.

    well... the key is the pan. good pan, plus never go extremely hot with the stove temp and never use spray.

    You dont use any oil? i always put a bit of oil in when im cookin eggs. lately ive been making these cowboy eggs where i only use butter, tho (where you take a cup, and bunch a circle inside a piece of bread. add butter on the pan, and then basically fry an egg inside the bread :yum:)

    no... don't use any of that stuff. A good pan doesn't need it.

    That's genius !! :bowdown:
    1 cup egg whites + 2 whole eggs + veggies (usually 1 stalk of broccoli or cauliflower, or green beans/asparagus and spinach). I put in on max temp and scramble it but take it off the heat when it's still liquidy enough, lower the temp, let it sit a little and then I flip it. I became really good at flipping it now, I never miss it so I look cool every morning.

    i need to work on my timing then... i always burn the hell out of my egg whites when i cook them too high

    or maybe it's the whole egg that allows the higher temp... hm...

    Keep scrambling them when at high temp and don't do it too long. There's still juicy in the end and that's when I lower the temperature so that it doesn't burn. You can cover them too so that they cook on the top too so it cuts the cooking time a bit but they tend to hold more liquid then.

    if you have a good nonstick pan you never should go above medium-high temp. Super high temps breakdown the nonstick compound. My stove goes to 10, I preheat on 7 for a couple of minutes (usually while I'm cooking oats and stuff), crack my eggs in and they turn white instantly. Then I turn the heat down to 5.5 for cooking.

    I won't argue with that :o

    And what I just described is fairly "clean" to me. I had a footlong italian beef yesterday (the beef was spilling out) with melted mozzarella cheese all over it with a large fry yesterday. I think I had some leftover chipotle and a slice of pizza after that :o
