    She's not your chef... but tbh looking at this thread I sincerely doubt that you have a GF and therefore this is a non issue.

    But if by sheer luck you do then you probably won't for so long so again... non issue

    If you want a runny yolk, teach her or yourself how to make poached eggs then.

    It's dead simple: fill a saucepan with water and bring it to the boil (when you start seeing bubbles forming at the bottom), then put the hob to a minimum and let it simmer (you don't want to boil your poached eggs as the white will not bind to the yolk and what you'll end up with is a boiled scrambled egg- not yummy). Crack open your eggs in small cups (much easier to release in the water) and get a whisk and stir in the water to create a gentle whirpool (some say add a dash of vinegar as well, to make the poached egg firmer, but to me it worked perfectly without- although I used very fresh eggs). Take out your whisk and release the egg as closely to the whirpool as possible (don't just drop it in, you want the egg to get caught in the current so that it will hold together) and leave it in the simmering pan for 3 minutes.

    In the meantime, get yourself a slice of toast and put it in the toaster. Once it's done, take it out and butter it (if you like buttered toast). Once the egg is done, take it out with a slotted spoon, and let the water drip off from it. Put it on your toast, sprinkle some salt, pepper and herbs to taste (I love a bit of paprika, dried parsley and dried dill on it) and enjoy.

    I gave you an ample description so that there's no way to get it wrong. It's dead simple, though. Delicious a f as well.

    Once you or your partner will master the poached egg, I will tell you how to make fritatta with savoury chicken and veggies

    Dad said I'm now cooking dishes better than him sometimes (and he's been a chef for 26 years) but I must admit I am not the best at making a cuppa. My boyfriend, however, is a virtuoso of tea making (although can't cook for sh^t) so we pair like cheese and wine :giggle:.

    what era are we living it? men and women have equal rights. the least you could do is be one preparing breakfast and serving it to her on the bed. little things like this are nice gestures and says a lot about your creativity. unfortunately the fact that you complain about her apparent inability to whip you up breakfast the way you want it, says a lot about your stupidity.

    she should leave you and leave you right this moment. she deserves better than this.

    I make the dankest scrambled eggs

    The yolky egg one I'm not good at lmao
    I'm great at fried eggs but suck at scrambled. Can we get married? It is my biggest fear that I will have children who can't make eggs, but I can teach them fried and you scrambled.

    I will find a mistress who can make them poached (boiled is easy, but in the interests of fairness you will also be allowed a guy as long as he can bring boiled eggs to the table).

    I know it was mockery to their bragging of making supreme breakfast meals.
