    It is easy for me to just boil up a big batch and then eat a couple in the morning to get some protien in. But do you guys have any suggestions for doing something a little different?

    Speed/simplicity is a must. I work hard, play hard, and train hard, so I usually get home and crawl into bed, and stay there until the last possible minute before work in the morning.

    all spice,cumin, and salt are the best I think. All really quick and I think they're pretty good

    Gee whiz, I thought "salt" was a no-brainer.

    Try mashing some egg yolks together with some mayonnaise and mustard and make some deviled eggs. They're delicious. And again, a no-brainer.

    Horseradish. Not the creamy horseradish sauce you put on roast beef, but the real stuff.

    If speed and simplicity is important, why don't you just eat them raw? Thats what I do.

    Paprika goes well on hard boiled eggs; toasted rye bread with eggplant caviar spread is a nice compliment.

    Jane's Krazy Mixed-up salt works for me.

    I usually keep a good dozen hard boiled eggs in my fridge at all times. I make egg salad, deviled eggs, put them on top of salads and eat them as is (with a little salt and pepper if it's handy).

    I'm a big fan of deviled eggs, but if thats too much time just a salt or even soy sauce will do

    I use older eggs (a few days to a week after buying), poke a hole in one end, let them boil for at least 10 minutes, then they sit on the stove until cooled off.

    Bacon, sausage and a biscuit. Scramble the eggs for the best effect.

    Psh, Rocky aint got **** on me. Seriously though, raw eggs aren't that bad. Quick, easy, and good source of protein.

    I'd splash some Tabasco or perhaps sprinkle some crushed red pepper on em.

    Salt pepper and a sprinkling of lemon juice can be really nice, with some chopped fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves. A hot buttered toast on the side, and some OJ to wash down.

    I second this, I don't know why all the raw egg phobia? They taste pretty good, and are healthy (salmonella is just a myth, the chance of getting it from raw eggs is <0.01%)

    BTW, I also eat raw bacon, but not the grocery-store brands that come in packages. I buy the real stuff straight from a butcher. Delicious.:)

    Salmonella isn't exactly a myth, but it is incredibly rare as you said. You have to get eggs that were infected, weren't stored properly, and not cooked properly.

    Raw egg is a texture thing for me, though. It tastes fine, but feels entirely too much like phlegm.

    Salt and pepper, my man. If not that then scramble (or poach) the eggs and make a sandwich with that, bacon, and cheese. It's good stuff.

    Mash 'em up and add curry powder. Put on toast.

    Your colleagues may not appreciate it though!

    Thanks guys, lots of good ideas in there.

    Oh and to Moz, I am not above waging biological warfare on my opponents. Nothing keeps the opposing net man from poaching quite like when I have had Bratwurst and kraut the night before.

    You will be home in the summer from school right?

    Bring your own food and water next time, and if you win more points in the rematch you can call foul :)

    I love an artesan slice of bread, brushed with some extra virgin olive oil, slightly toasted, and mashed hard boiled egg with mayonaisse and a bit of black pepper on top....

    One of my favorite breakfasts and so easy and quick....

    Is that an egg salad???? CC?

    Yeah. I'm back around the 10th or so of May. Maybe earlier if my professors and my boss don't give me extra work.

    Is that a challenge? :wink:

    Pretty darn close I would say. I am eating an egg salad pita right now since I've had a craving since last night (I wonder why).

    I keep it simple. Egg, green onion, mayo, salt, pepper and a wee bit of mustard to add some tang. I like it either on white bread or a pita with lettuce (but never toasted). :)

    I would not mind some nice shredded or grated cheese over the sliced eggs (yes, everything that pable mentioned too), and perhaps some walnuts and a little sliced apple to give some contrast (on the side).

    If the idea of using mayo for egg salad or deviled eggs doesn't appeal to anyone try using hummus. If you buy it at the store you may want to spice it up. It's also great with tuna for tuna salad.

    Sea Salt or rock salt. If you need potassium, there is a Lite Salt that is half sodium and potassium. Don't ask me about the taste, I just found out about the potassium in Lite Salt.
