Hmmm, I guess, technically, I don't.
Haha- yeah, I hate cheese also unless it's something like aged parmesan in pesto.

To really screw with people, I also hate chocolate. Which is weird, because I love beer (which is bitter) and coffee (which is bitter), but chocolate is a terrible bitter to me. I can't even stand cocoa butter in my lotions because of the chocolate oversmell. It's like this bad bad bitter smell and taste that I just can't stand.

I know lots of women love cheese and chocolate (and eggs), but I just can't manage those foods. I can eat just about anything else- raw conch in the Bahamas, fried grasshoppers in Oaxaca, even baby octopus in a sushi place. But chocolate? {shudder}

The worse thing I can imagine is a breakfast of eggs AND cheese.

I've been semi-poaching my eggs in light cream. Halfway between a fried and poached. Awesome.

I really like poached eggs and over easy but my usual methods are scrambled with chedder and salsa or over easy over a piece of spent grain bread.

My favorite is an omelette with smoked salmon, minced onions, green peppers folded over and the top sprinkled with black pepper and parmesan cheese but that is only an occasional meal. The norm is scrambled eggs with fresh bits of bacon and cheddar cheese in the mix.

Eggs and cheese go together like, like, well...like peanut butter and chocolate!!!!!

My go-to is a medium omelet with bacon (done in the microwave is best for this, believe it or not), white onion, and red pepper all diced and mixed in with the egg, with some grated medium cheddar folded in the middle (near the end) to melt. Awesome!

My favorite though is eggs benedict, usinh homemade hollandaise sauce with fresh tarragon or ancho pepper powder. Don't enjoy it as much as I'd like, as making hollandaise for one person is a bit ridiculous, especially since it only keeps for a few hours, meaning leftovers are not an option.

And as a kid I always ate mine sunny side up. This REQUIRES toast, since it's all about breaking the yolk and dipping the toast in it. I used to not even touch the white.

And one tip I learned years back: a bit of water (NOT milk) will make scrambled eggs so much fluffier!

Even better, I'd say. It goes together like cereal and milk. It's damn near essential!

Gotta disagree with you there. Milk FTW (and cheddar and white pepper).

I will do my best to not judge you.

Somebody else already mentioned runny scrambled eggs with hot sauce and veggies. That's my go to all the way.

I'm not saying that using milk is bad and using water is the best, only that they're different. I'm just saying that water makes them fluffier, if that's what a person wants (which is impossible to disagree with as it's a fact ). They very well may still prefer them with milk, but the vast majority of people I've told who've ACTUALLY tried them with a bit of water are converts. I'm only talking about like a ½tsp or so per egg here... very little.

Cheddar though is something I definitely can't argue with! And it's hard to go wrong with ANY kind of pepper, be it black pepper, white pepper, bell pepper, or even (as mentioned in my previous post) ancho (or cayenne) pepper, or some mixture thereof.
