The Eggs Debate - Aloha

A few days ago, I learned that you can actually purchased boiled eggs. I was shocked. I thought eggs were bough fresh and then cooked. Even at the restaurants I thought it was done this way.

Eggs are delicate things to me. I have to cook it for myself. I wont even order an egg salad!

1. Do you purchase your own eggs fresh in their shells?
2. Do you purchase eggs already cooked?  (I' not referring to Ihop or getting eggs at a restaurant)

A Minnesota company is recalling cooked eggs distributed in 34 states because of possible listeria contamination.

And a little about me

  1. I buy them in a little box containing 6 or 12 fresh ones. Cook them myself. They need to be absolutely fresh though.I would not have them in any way.
    Eggs can be contaminated easily, salmonella for instance. I don't need that!

  5. My mum helps to buy the eggs for me as she can get them cheaper by the tray 30 eggs for about $5.40.
    My kids like half boil eggs so I cook them myself.

  9. I am a breakfast person. Love eggs, but I didn't know they sold them cooked in stores either, but no I wouldn't buy them either. Have a great weekend.

  11. I usually buy them fresh (love brown eggs) but have bought them already cooked once or twice for an egg hunt. They have expiration dates on them like any other food.
    Here's My Question

  12. I'm pretty picky about my cooked eggs as well. I like them scrambled and a bit runny. I cannot stand the smell of burnt or over-cooked eggs!


    Have a great weekend!

  14. I never buy powder eggs. I think they taste bland and weird. I always purchase eggs with shells.

  16. I love eggs, but cook them myself. They are the one perfect protein. I wrote a lengthy article on the benefits of eggs.

    My friend had chickens and I would get them fresh from her, but some wild animal killed them so now I must buy them at a store.

    Blessings.

  18. I never knew you could buy them already boiled! I don't think I'd buy them already cooked if they were available here.

  19. I am a picky eater so I only buy fresh. There are some local farms and I buy those eggs. I couldn't buy a boiled egg. If I could, I'd bake and cook everything myself but that's impossible. Fun topic :)

  20. Hi J.S. from LA ~~ Good questions today (well, Thursday but today for me). I am sorry to be so late, I will try better next time. Thank you for looking in at my old typewriter.

    I have never bought eggs other than in their shells. But I have heard of powdered eggs though not ready hard boiled.

    Aren't the ready boiled eggs for salad making? Restaurants for sure buy them this way. Peeling eggs is labor intensive.
