    Do you mean a dozen halves, six whole eggs, or a dozen eggs, 24 halves?

    I've eaten a dozen halves before. When I was pregnant with my second child I had high blood pressure at the end. My midwife "prescribed" me six eggs a day and all the watermelon I could stomach. It worked. I'm not sure what's in eggs that lowers blood pressure (short term-- I'm pretty sure long term it's not good to eat six eggs a day, but it was only going to be a couple of weeks for me).

    The only trick with eggs I know is to add to the beaten eggs before you scramble them: some 1/2 & 1/2, various bits of cheese, and a dash of cumin. Also I find that heat is a key element to successful eggs...low side of Medium makes the best, though it takes longer.

    Let me also add that I have never successfully flipped an omelette.

    I could literally eat eggs until my stomach explodes. I love them. As much as I like deviled eggs though, I prefer egg salad. It's the same thing basically, only more finely mixed.

    In a frying pan, with a little olive oil, fry some chopped onions and crushed garlic. Add as much chilli as you like. When the onions are soft, add a can of chopped tomatoes, and one of kidney beans. When it's all heated through, pout the mixture into oven proof dishes, crack an egg or two in the middle of each one, add a drop of olive oil on top of the egg and bake at about 200C for ten minutes. Eat with bread rolls.

    Cooking eggs volume 2
    I read about baluts not that long ago and showed a pic to my husband. It repelled him so much that he seriously gets annoyed at me for just saying the word "balut" which offcourse means I say over and over again (especially when we eat).

    Balut:
    From wiki - Balut is a fertilized duck egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. They are considered delicacies of Asia and especially the Philippines, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Popularly believed to be an aphrodisiac and considered a high-protein, hearty snack, baluts are mostly sold by street vendors at night in the regions where they are available. They are often served with beer. The Filipino and Malay word balut(balot) roughly translates to mean "wrapped".

    Here's another favorite way in which I cook eggs. It's a frittata.



    Think of it as a really chunky quiche without the crust.

    That looks yummy!

    My mother-in-law makes a thing like that called a German Apple Pancake, which I suspect is neither German nor a pancake but actually does contain apples. Mostly eggs with a bit of flour and milk and apples, baked in a skillet and then topped with apple compote.

    The frittata starts in a cast-iron frying pan. Start by frying bacon, ham, or sausage, then add potatoes, onions, and (somewhat later) mushrooms. When the vegetables are cooked, pour raw scrambled eggs over the mixture, top with shredded cheese and fresh tomatoes, and pop the whole thing in the oven for 20 minutes or until the eggs show a touch of brown around the edges.

    It's fantastic.

    That sounds awesome. I may make it tonight!

    I found the German Apple Pancake recipe:

    German Apple Pancake

    INGREDIENTS

    Pancake:
    3 large eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    3/4 cup white flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 Tbs butter
    1/2 cup thin-sliced apples

    Filling: 1 lb. tart, fresh apples (pippin are great)
    1/4 cup melted butter
    1/4 cup sugar
    powdered cinnamon and nutmeg

    Topping:
    2 tbs. melted butter
    powdered sugar

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Beat together the eggs, milk, flour, and salt until very smooth. Add some very thinly sliced apples if desired. In a heavy 12 inch skillet, melt about 1 1/2 tbs butter. As soon as it is quite hot, pour in the batter and put the skillet in the oven. After 15 minutes, lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for another 10 minutes. The pancake should be light brown and crisp.

    During the first 10 or 15 minutes of baking, the pancake may puff up in large bubbles. If it does, pierce it thoroughly with a fork or skewer.

    While the pancake is baking prepare the apple filling. Peel and thinly slice a pound of apples. Saute them lightly in 1/4 butter and add 1/4 cup sugar. Season to taste with cinnamon and nutmeg. The apples should be just tender, not to soft. About 8 to ten minutes of cooking over a medium flame should be plenty.

    (The filling can be prepared ahead and reheated just before serving)

    When the pancake is ready, slide it onto an oval platter, pour the apple filing over one side, and fold the other side over. A little melted butter can be poured on if you choose and the whole thing carefully sprinkled with powdered sugar through a sieve. Serve it at once, slicing pieces off crosswise.
