the modern day julie/julia project- 5 ways to cook eggs

I apologize in advance for the copious number of egg puns.

Hey there! Welcome back to ‘The Confessions of a Random Blogger!’

If you’re new here, this is a continuing series where I document my experience of learning how to cook. As a broke college student, knowing how to cook, at least a few basic things, is absolutely vital.

I actually started this series back in July 2020, when I still actually thought that I would be going to a physical college, instead of just doing online classes from my bedroom. I’ve actually been taking online exams this entire week. As you can imagine it’s been…interesting. I guess we just have to roll with the punches don’t we!

So in my last post, where I learnt a few microwaveable recipes, I asked you guys to comment some recommendations of what I should learn to cook next. Someone commented saying that I should learn how to cook different types of eggs. You know, scrambled, poached, the works.

So that is exactly what I’m going to be doing today. I’m going to be making 5 different types of eggs. At least, I’m going to try to. I don’t guarantee anything that is actually edible.

Let’s just hope that I can escape this one with as few burns and scarring as possible, and if I’m lucky, at least one new recipe I can add to the very short list of things that I can cook.

Let’s get started!

Scrambled Eggs

Homemade Scrambled Eggs
My food photography game has stepped up if I do say so myself.

I hope this recipe doesn’t scramble my head too much.

Wait, did you guys know that you’re supposed to add milk to scrambled eggs?

This recipe was actually really easy! Although it did kind of start looking scary in the middle, I actually think this was one of the easiest recipes I made today, although I did still manage to burn my arm.

Fried Eggs

How do monsters like their eggs? Terri-fried.

Although at first glance, this recipe looks easy enough, I was actually ‘terri-fried’ to break the egg yolk. Especially since I was cooking for my extremely critical family of food snobs.

They won’t make their own breakfast, but god forbid their breakfast is just slightly hideous.

It actually turned out really well! Although I don’t know why it turned out this small.

It sort of looks like the fried egg emoji doesn’t it? At least, a slightly-burnt, real-life version of it.

Homemade Fried Egg vs Emoji

The egg can be your best friend, if you just give it the right break.

Boiled Eggs

I’m going to have to do a lot of eggsercise to work off all this food.

Homemade Boiled Egg

Okay so I really messed this one up. It sounds like it should’ve been simple enough to make, but somehow the eggs…broke mid-boil, creating a boiled egg, that while tasted perfectly fine, looked extremely disgusting.

However, due to my intense training on how to make unattractive things look slightly presentable (hyperlink: my Instagram page), I somehow managed to make them look decent.

It’s so beautifully arranged on the plate, you know someone’s fingers have been all over it.

Okay fine, I just put it on a fancy plate. Okay fine, my mom almost murdered me when I nearly dropped the fancy plate.

Oh wait, I already did this one! Click here to check it out!


I can’t think of any more egg puns because omelette for class.


The only one that I actually knew how to make before this post!

I think this was actually the easiest one! Beat the eggs, throw it in the pan. At least that’s the way I make them. I couldn’t care less about all the different fancy methods that restaurants use- adding milk or water or whatever.

Okay fine, I know that the omelette is kind of ugly, but it has a great personality, I promise!

Eggstra Egg Puns

Why did the egg regret being in the omelette? It wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Why did the egg hide? Because he’s a little chicken.

What did the officer say to the egg after he pulled it over for speeding? Omelettin’ it slide this time.

Once again, I’m sorry…

Thank you for reading! I hope you guys enjoyed this train-wreck of a blog post! I just finished my exams yesterday, so I promise my next post will be just slightly less…whatever adjective describes what this was.

Comment some recommendations of what I should learn to cook next!

Till then, try out some of these egg variations (that is if you haven’t already) and let me know what worked for you! You can check out my last few posts here:

This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook—try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun.

Until Next Time.
