Look, omelettes are wonderful little egg dishes - particularly when they involve cheese and other fillings - but there's no denying they require a bit of babying. If you want a cheesy, vegetable-studded egg dish that is much more forgiving of your dismal attention span, you need to start making frittatas.

Some people prefer sweet foods, others savoury. Sweet potato is equipped to handle both. Not only are these babies the perfect base for all sorts of fillings, they provide a bit more flavour (and nutrients) than their paler counterparts, and can be enjoyed morning, noon, and night. Here are three delicious options for breakfast, lunch and tea.
There are lots of tricks to making poached eggs. Add vinegar to the water, swirl the water into a vortex, slip the egg gently into the water from a mug, plop the egg into the water so its momentum holds it together. Boil the water, simmer the water, once the egg is in turn the heat off altogether. Well, here's my number one poached egg tip: Don't.
I love deviled eggs more than is decent, but I used to hate making them. It wasn't that I didn't know how to make the filling taste good, or that I hated the smell of sulphur, but the act of peeling eggs almost always sent me into a blind rage. Those days are gone, however, as I now know how to make hard-boiled eggs that will peel without issue.
An over-easy egg on toast is one of my favourite simple breakfasts, but these eggs are equally at home atop a bed of rice, a burger, or even a piece of pizza. Hitting that sweet spot where the whites are fully cooked but the yolk is still nice and runny isn't difficult -- you just have to know what you're doing.
One problem with scrambled eggs is that they don't lend themselves to being reheated. But as drive-thru restaurants have shown us, it's not impossible and added ingredients can actually result in delicious leftovers. Here's one way to make a quick, flavoursome egg breakfast that you can reheat and scoff all week long.
Last week, egg producer Snowdale Holdings was penalised A$1 million for falsely labelling their eggs as free-range. Snowdale, one of the biggest producers in the Australian market, owns brands including Eggs by Ellah, Swan Valley Free Range, and Wanneroo Free Range.
Given the significantly higher prices generally charged for free-range eggs, you could be forgiven for having doubts over what you’re getting in the supermarket. Even when egg cartons are legally accurate, the government definition of “free range” might not mean what you think it does.
"How would you like your eggs?" isn't a question that should cause you panic. However, it's possible that you may not be egg-ercising all your options, especially if all you've ever known is scrambled.
This is especially true in US diners, which employ a plethora of regional phrases that aren't used anywhere else in the world. While "Sunny Side Up" is pretty easy to decipher, what about Over Medium? Or Coddled? Or Shirred? This guide has all the answers.
Starting one's day with salad may seem like the opposite of want you want to do, but hear me out. I too was once very sceptical of the breakfast salad, but have since seen the way and am out to preach the good news. Breakfast salads are not only filling without being heavy, but they're delicious, easy to throw together, and they help prevent food waste (more on that in a moment).
Most of us don't have a lot of time in the morning to cook a luxurious breakfast, but this technique from Epicurious delivers one of the most delicious-looking egg sandwiches I've seen in minutes, and all you need is an egg, a microwave and some sandwich fixings (you know: bread, cheese and a few condiments).
If you have recently purchased an immersion circulator -- or are looking to -- deciding what to cook first with your new toy can be a little overwhelming. Luckily, we do a fair amount of sous vide-ing around these parts and have a pretty good handle on what will sous vide and what won't.
