I would add a Chinese steamed egg custard dish to the list, delectable, delicious, easy and adaptable.

Not a SINGLE mention of a recipe from my book devoted to this, the most economical, practical, utilitarian and delicious ingredient on the planet? Not even my broken yolk fried egg sandwich, filmed in your kitchen no less!
I’m sure it was an oversight! So glad you brought this to our attention! I looked up your Broken Yolk Fried Egg Sandwich on Food 52, and your cookbook as well. Thank you so much! https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/0316254061/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

You’re a sweetheart nancy. And I love love love that broken yolk sandwich. Ty!
One of my favorite SUPER easy way to fix eggs, an “everyday” or week day preparation from Food 52 is Canal House's Pimentón Fried Eggs. https://food52.com/recipes/55040-canal-house-s-pimenton-fried-eggs. So easy, basically eggs + oil + smoked paprika, and crunchy edged fried eggs! Cant wait to try more of these!!!

My fave egg recipe is the NY Times Gourmet Pancake (basically a Dutch baby) with sugar and fresh lemon juice.

Don't have a favorite to offer but a favor to ask. Having searched the Internet and printed literature and having kitchen tested the most promising finds, I'm at a loss for a way forward for the ranchero sauce that is so common in Mexican restaurants throughout the country (most recently, La Mexicana in Houston): a rich savory chocolate colored (but not flavored) confection that verges on the consistency of gravy. Most people order theirs with fried eggs but I prefer mine scrambled.

I also searched high and low for a ranchero sauce recipe. I finally found one by Melissa Sperka. Https://www.melissassouthernstylekitchen.com/homemade-ranchero-sauce/ If you have trouble finding it I can email you a copy. Try this sauce with leftover pot roast to make Shredded Beef Enchiladas, delicious!

Thanks much, I'll give it a go. I came across another possibility the other day that you might like--I haven't tried it yet but the color seems about right, the ingredients list is short and simple, and one commenter's suggestion to substitute some chipotle-in-adobo for the liquid smoke seems like a good idea (https://www.aspicyperspective.com/best-ranchero-sauce-recipe/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social-pug).

I love both creamed spinach with an egg poached on top and Turkish leeks and spinach baked with a chunk of feta and poached egg on top. Both with good crusty bread.

I got some really great ideas from this. Like all things, I adjust to my taste. My favorite egg recipe is scrambled eggs with truffle oil. Add a dash of heavy cream and fresh pepper to 2 or 3 eggs when scrambling. Add tbsp of butter and tsp of bacon fat to hot pan. Cook to your preferred doneness. I salt after cooking and add a dash of white truffle oil. Yum.
