The complete guide to cooking eggs every which way

You've had scrambled eggs. You've had poached eggs. But have you had poached-scrambled eggs?

It is impossible to say too much about the wonders of the egg — that little miracle that tastes equally luxurious whether it's been fried in burbling butter or cooked gently in nothing more than water.

You're likely already familiar with the egg's myriad of virtues, so instead, let's talk about something more specific: how to honor it. Because, when you love something as fiercely as we love eggs, you want to know everything about it. You want to be with it everyday. You want to have breakfast with it — and lunch, dinner, dessert. In that spirit, we've rounded up all our tips to ensure that your every experience with eggs is a tasty one.

  • Sometimes — like when you're making custards — scrambled eggs are the enemy. Temper your eggs to keep them in check.
