Eggs Three Ways

How to make eggs three ways. We’ve broken down how to make the most delicious scrambled, fried and poached eggs for you. Don’t forget: Make sure to buy pastured, local eggs if possible.

The best scrambled eggs:

You’ll need

  • 3 eggs
  • Butter, oil or organic cooking spray
  • Bowl
  • Whisk or immersion blender
  • Medium skillet
  • Wooden spatula
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional: chives


  • Crack eggs into the bowl
  • Grab your whisk or immersion blender. Whisk or blend until totally combined
  • Melt butter in skillet and pour the eggs in
  • Depending on how you like your eggs, big scrambles or small scrambles, sweep or circle your spoon. If you like folds, sweep the eggs across the pan. If you like small scrambles, continuously stir the eggs until they are cooked to your liking
  • Quickly transfer onto a plate out of the pan (they keep cooking even after you turn off the heat so you want to get them out of the pan as quickly as possible)
  • Garnish with flake salt, pepper, and chives


The best fried eggs:

You’ll need

  • Eggs
  • Olive oil
  • Medium skillet
  • Slotted spatula
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional: butter


  • Heat 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat
  • When oil is very hot (will take a minute or so), crack your egg into the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Oil should be bubbling around up around the whites from the start—this is a good thing!
  • With a spoon, continue to baste the egg with the olive oil from the pan. Keep doing this for about 2 minutes until the sides of the yolk are set
  • Remove with your slotted spatula

The best poached eggs:

You’ll need

  • 2 eggs
  • Deep skillet
  • Ramekins
  • White vinegar
  • Slotted spoon
  • Clean, dry tea towel
  • Flake salt


  • Take your tea cups, fill them 1/3 of the way full with water and a splash of white vinegar
  • Fill your skillet with an inch and a half of water
  • Heat over medium heat until it’s 180 degrees (or small bubbles are forming)
  • Take your slotted spoon and wave it through the water to break up the bubbles before gently sliding the eggs into the water
  • Let cook for 5 minutes before removing with you slotted spoon
  • Take a knife or cooking scissors and remove the stringy/not pretty bits. Season with flake salt.
  • Move onto toast or salad and enjoy!
