Welcome back to another week of WIAW, it’s the 5th edition and as always, I’m linking up with Jenn and Amanda. Let’s dive dig in!

This week I’ve been eating a lot of eggs because:

    • They contain vitamin B
    • They contain Selenium
    • They contain vitamin B2
    • They have the perfect BCAA(branched-chain amino acids) profile
    • They’re delectable no matter how prepared!
    • One of the most filling foods for just 70-80 calories

Hard boiled egg.

Exhibition A- The classic, pure egg and cooked-with-nothing-else hard boiled egg. Slice your lengthwise like mine and use it to top salads for a beautiful garnish. Sometimes, I like to scoop out the starchy yolk and mash it with my salad dressing and pour that over the salad. It works as a great thickener. Have you tried it?

One weird thing: actually it might not be so weird, but it’s always been a foregin idea to me to have the yolk slightly runny. I don’t make myself sunny side up eggs, instead I always cook them well through, front and back side. I think I might have overdone the yolk in this one just a tad, even though the center never touched the pan.

I don’t mind the taste, actually. I think I’ll keep trying to take risks like and carry them into my hardboiled and make them not as hard-boiled.

And of course, I had The A-B-C BLT for dinner. When I first saw this burger I thought, there’s no way I’m not going to be hungry after. It’s too good! But somehow the combination of foods made it filing and I didn’t feel the need to want more.

So more or less I had an egg-mania kind of week and I don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon.

How do you cook your eggs? Do you like them well-done? Have you  had an egg-mania kind of week?

    Sandwich looks lovely! I quite often use my eggs to make low carb pancakes. Two eggs plus two ounces of cream cheese, mix together with a hand blender and pour into a hot frying pan lightly greased with either butter or bacon fat. If you fancy it throw in a few blueberries.
    Quite delicious!

    Wow this looks delicious! I love the basil- I bet that adds really nice flavor. I pretty much like my eggs all ways- well done, runny, and everything in between!

  • FAAAAAAAACKKKK!!! I MISS EGGIES AND THESE PHOTOS are making me want to cry!!!! 🙁

  • Sprint2theTable

    Nothing wrong with a little egg-session! 😉

  • jessie

    You now have me want an abc blt right this second!

  • my husband would eat your BLT. I do eat lots of eggs in omelets or fritattas with lots of veggies. Confessions of A Mother Runner

  • Oh man that’s one awesome-looking burger!! I like my eggs sunny side up so that the yolks are runny 🙂

  • Kelsey @ The Primal Yogi

    Yum that ABC BLT looks deelish! I recently just starting switching from omelets to just fried eggs and for the first time sort of like the runny yolk. I guess taste buds can change at any time!

  • I’m pinning your burger recipe because it looks delicious. Nice video. #wowlinkup

  • Kirtley @The Gist of FIt

    Wow I haven’t had a BLT in a LONG time! This should be fun to try–my huney just asked for some bacon the other day. Lovely pics!

  • Jessica Johansen

    That looks incredible, FEED ME!

  • Amanda H

    Yum that looks amazing! Love eggs on sandwiches (and everything lol) #wowlinkup

  • That looks awesome!! Totally going to try that!

  • Eggs and me have been having a very nice relationship lately. I’ve been eating them at least daily (2) for breakfast. They are filing and just really really good! #wowlinkup

  • Oh yeah, you can never go wrong with eggs & bacon! 🙂

    Blessings,

  • Looks delicious to me! My favorite way to have eggs is in an omelette but I pretty much like them any way they’re cooked. And bacon makes everything taste better!
