Great Eats: A Perfect Egg

With fresh thyme
When it comes to eggs, less is not only best, it's a requisite. And I've ruined many-an-omelette with a dash of this and a dash of that and suddenly, there was a pungent and tasteless mass of egg in front of me that obviously had missed the mark.

So keep it simple. Eggs are best with just a dash of pink or sea salt, with just a small sprig of something or a hint of spice. Pick one spice - sage, thyme, or dill - or any of a slew - using any more clutters that delicate eggy flavor of eggs.

With fresh sage
Using fresh spices also helps tremendously. If you're bored with whatever's in your pantry - source it fresh. The fresh spices a touch of luxury and also an immense improvement in flavor to any dish, but especially here.

But if you're looking to really switch it up, mix equal parts ketchup and sweet chili sauce and eat your eggs with it. And before you judge me, just try it! The sauce is tasty, sweet and a slightly spicy mixture and I'll take any chance to add it to my diet. Just be sure to use the ketchup with no high fructose corn syrup.
