Given alot of people on here have eggs coming out of their ears :D one dish that is quite easy to make is the asian style steamed eggs.

4-6 eggs (depending on how much you want to eat)
same amount of cool boiled water as the eggs
soy sauce and pepper for flavouring

Beat the eggs and water softly, enough to break up the yolks and it looks mixed with the water. Add enough soy sauce and pepper to taste.

In a steamer (i use a big pot), boil water ready for steaming. Put egg mix into a steel or ceramic dish that will fit into the steamer, and lower into the pot. After about 5 minutes, open up the lid and shake the dish. If it appears to be solid then remove from the steamer otherwise pop the lid back on and wait another 2 minutes.

Remove from the steamer and you can sprinkle more soy sauce on the top (if the egg isn't salty enough) and can also add some fresh coriander too.

Variations:
- You can marinade some mince pork on the bottom of the dish, steam it for about 5 minutes then put the steam egg mix ontop (and steam as above), adjusting the egg mix so it doesn't spill over the top of the dish.

- mung bean noodles, dried shrimp and dried shitake mushroom can also be mixed into the egg mix for a textured steamed egg. Ensure that you have soaked the dried shrimp and mushroom before hand so it is soft enough to steam.

- adding a salted duck egg (with its oily yolk) will also change the texture of this dish.

This dish is quite flexible and opened to variation.

Sounds great!! I was thinking that you could do them in individual dishes in a bamboo steamer as well. Yummy.
