Would You Rather? Eggs vs. Waffles, Pancakes & French Toast Eick November 6, 2007 Would You Rather? 6 Comments The questions keep coming, one a day through Friday. Today marks day 2. Check out all the previous Would You Rather? questions I have posed over the last two months by clicking any of the little blue Would You Rather? links I have scattered around this post. And now, today’s question, which tackles breakfast preferences: Would You Rather? Option #1: You can never have eggs (on their own, not in a recipe) again. Option #2: You can never have waffles, pancakes or french toast again. One clarification: we are talking about eggs as eggs, i.e. as the primary component of what you are eating. If a batch of brownies has an egg in it, you can still eat it. However, something where eggs are the focus, like deviled eggs or egg salad, are off limits.

Reply Eick November 6th, 2007 Yeah obviously you can’t eat a sandwich with an egg on it, be it a breakfast sandwich or adding an egg to your burger or cheesesteak. You can’t have eggs in their basic form in any manner whatsoever. The ONLY exception is for recipes and foods that are totally unrelated to eggs but just happen to have egg in them. For example, most baked goods have eggs in their batter, or when someone makes fried chicken they might dip the chicken in egg batter to get the breading to stick. You can’t eat eggs as eggs, but we can’t play the food police and search out every single baked product to determine if there was one egg added to the batter or not. Reply Hillary November 6th, 2007 For sure eggs. Up until recently, I actually hated eggs on their own. The smell would nauseate me, so even though I do enjoy them now, I can’t be disloyal to my pancakes and waffles who have fed me many more breakfasts than eggs ever have. Reply Abi November 12th, 2007 I always considered egg one of the primary elements of French Toast. Oooh, I think I’ll go make some FT right now. I love working from home. Reply Susan January 15th, 2009 This was a toughie. Eggs contain so much good nutrition and are so easy to fix. Little mess, no fancy recipes. But pancakes, nummy. I went with the eggs. Bye-bye, short stack. Reply Raiders757 March 29th, 2009 You can make french toast without the egg to dip the bread in. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
