A Recipe Article by Jodah. Can You Believe It?

For those people who know me and my writing, this will be the least likely type of article you'd expect from me. When you see a notification that "Jodah" has written something new you have come to expect a poem, short story, or maybe an essay about the environment or self-sufficiency. Not, "How to Make the World's Best Scrambled Eggs."

Well, there is a first for everything, or so they say. So here is my first ever (and probably last) recipe article. I hope you enjoy.

p.s. I had to throw a poem at the end (it is related, and is what I do) to please the poetry lovers and my followers :) Those readers who are just looking for a scrambled eggs recipe and/or don't like poetry are welcome to leave without reading the poem. That way I keep everyone happy.

Now for the Traditional Recipe..

Preparation and Cooking Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: Serves two people using six eggs.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, per person
  • to taste shallots or chives, chopped
  • equivalent volume as eggs, milk, full cream or light
  • one or two sprigs per serve parsley
  • two slices per person sour dough bread, toast

Step-by-step Instructions

  1. Spray frying pan or wok with olive oil cooking spray (or use non-stick pan) and place on medium heat
  2. Break three eggs into a bowl
  3. Add from half to the equivalent amount of milk to eggs (depending on the preference of consistency).
  4. Chop a generous amount of shallots, chives, or garlic chives and add to eggs and milk.
  5. Beat all ingredients until eggs are totally broken up and mixed in. (The Padia semiautomatic whisk/egg beater makes this job so easy. Better than any other egg beater I have used.)
  6. Pour the mix into the pan and leave until it begins to bubble, then turn the heat down slightly.
  7. Begin to cook two slices of toast per person.
  8. Using a spatula or egg flip begin to fold the mixture over itself from the outside in so that it cooks evenly throughout. Continue to do this throughout the entire cooking time.
  9. Turn off pan, butter toast and place on plates. Serve the scrambled egg onto the toast.
  10. Add a sprig of parsley on top of each serve to finish off.
  11. Add salt or pepper to taste.
  12. Voila! Enjoy.

Alternative Ingredients

Of course you can easily alter the recipe to suit your own taste. Feel free to add a little grated cheese, chopped onion instead of shallots or chives, a touch of chilli, chopped mushrooms, and maybe some shredded bacon or ham. If you don't have sour dough bread you can substitute it for rye, whole grain, (white if you must). Some who don't need to watch calories may even like to use cream instead of milk. It's my opinion that no recipe needs to be adhered to hard and fast. But this recipe is very basic, quick to prepare, and tastes great. I know, because I eat it :) and I like food.

No Bones About It

I bred a boneless chicken

That laid pre-scrambled eggs.

It sat around and ate and laid,

'Cause it couldn't use its legs.

What Inspired This?

You may be asking yourself, "What came over Jodah to write this?" Well, there has been a lot of conversation recently about the status given to poetry and short fiction writers here at Hub Pages. It was mentioned in another article that poetry hubs never receive any accolades. That honor usually is afforded to 'recipe' and 'how to..' hubs. I half-jokingly suggested that I was thinking of writing a poem titled "How to Bake the World's Best Apple Pie," and see if it would be considered for Hub of the Day.

After writing that I thought, "Well why not? It's not such a dumb idea." The only problem was I have never baked an apple pie. I thought a bit more about what I could cook, and it came to me. My wife always says I make the best scrambled egg she has ever eaten, so I decided to write this recipe article. So this is really an experiment.. an undercover poetry hub disguised as a recipe hub and listed in the category 'Food and Cooking' rather than 'Creative Writing-Poetry'. Let's see how it is rated by HubPages.

How to Make the World's Best Scrambled Eggs


Which came first

The question begs,

Was it the chicken

Or the eggs?


The truth maybe

We'll never know,

But eggs are laid

And chickens grow.


Eggs are protein

At its best,

A breakfast fare

That stands the test.


I love hen's eggs,

My daily staple.

Boiled or scrambled,

They're at my table.


How do you make

The world's best scramble?

First raise chickens,

Let them free range ramble.


Feed them well

And get them fat.

Keep them away

From that hungry cat.


In a few months time

They'll start to lay,

Unless they're roosters,

No need to say.

Now take three eggs

For every mouth,

Mix with milk,

Equal amount.


Beat it well

And add shallots,

Or garlic chives,

Then in the pot.


First spray the pan

With olive oil,

Then let the contents

Slowly boil.


Stir it gently

As it cooks,

Resist the pleading

Hungry looks.


Toast some bread

Then do not wait,

Place the scrambled

On the plate.


A sprig of parsley

The finished touch,

Place this on top

Then serve it up.

      Nice! Nice! The poetry adds an extra flavour to the recipe. This should be on the new niche site - Delishably. I saw Ashish's recent hub was moved there. A great hub, Jodah. I have started eating eggs now. Will try this out. I used to eat Subway sandwiches with egg salad. Yum-yum! Delicious!

      I loved the poem recipe and thought that was it. Especially how you started off saying we can skip the poem. I didn't. And I thought you were playing around with those readers who chose to skip the poem.

      I got the best of both as I was treated to another fine work of yours with the regular recipe version. That satisfied me about the amount of milk. The poem version said equal amounts, but I felt that was too much milk. I'm going to follow the half milk rule you indicated after the poem.

      rjbatty, here is a link to the hub you asked me to write. Not sure if it is what you expected, but I did it: https://hubpages.com/politics/Lets-Find-the-Middle...

    • rjbatty profile image

      rjbatty 19 months ago from Irvine

      Jodah: I just read your Aussie-talk Hub and cannot find anything objectionable. It's informative, extremely detailed and well done.

      I really hope you write a Hub about censorship re. HubPages, as I think they are going too far in being purists.

      I suppose we can just talk about scrambled eggs until the cows come home, but what sort of forum would this constitute?

      I'd take on the task of revealing how puritanical HubPages can be, but I think you'd do a much better job. I'm sort of hot-headed and would probably blow the whole effort. You have a sense of control/balance and decorum that I don't possess.

      Just consider it as a possible. If you are in this for some monetary return, I can understand your reluctance. But, I feel it's an issue that needs addressing, and I see you as the best possible candidate.

      The "Learning Center" strikes me as an extension of HubPages' limitation of contact with an actual homo sapien. I picture the whole enterprise as consisting of a minimum of low-paying post-graduates who would prefer to censor a Hub rather than run the risk of someone ("a superior") finding the material too flush for publication. I don't earn a dime from my postings because I fouled up something when I signed on, and I don't care. They can take their $25 per month (or whatever) and shove it, but I find their censorship policy to be overly stringent and cowardly. Someone has to call them on this. I can't do it because I'm too heated, so I look toward you for writing a Hub that addresses the issue in a less phlegmatic way. Write out a sketch. Send it to me if you want some feedback (and feel you need it), then publish it.

      I don't want to push you into doing something that is of no real interest, but you are my go-to guy, so I hope you'll take the effort.

      John Hansen 19 months ago from Queensland Australia

      Thanks for your faith in me to handle such a task RJ. Yes, I have had a few run-ins in regard to censorship. The first time was with a hub called "Prince Plethora's Pleasure Palace" where I had to delete a pic of a painting that showed nipples through a see-through shirt and mention of a topless dancer. I had to remove these and ask for moderation by a human and ads were reinstated, but the first time I updated the hub they were disabled again. My other most controversial hubs are my "How to Talk Aussie" series of which this is one (also with ads disabled): https://hubpages.com/literature/How-to-Talk-Aussie...

      I appreciate your comments with regard to my approach and that I am a balanced writer, and I may actually do as you suggest. You said there was no "Help Page" though, what about the Learning Centre?

    • rjbatty profile image

      rjbatty 19 months ago from Irvine

      Jodah: I want to hear from you re. Hub writing articles that sit on the border of what the sequestered editors of HubPages find appropriate and inappropriate. I want you to write a separate Hub on the subject. You admitted that some of your own material was censored. That had to rub you the wrong way, as it did for me. You have the tact, the skill, the experience to put this subject into perspective. Who are these editors? Are they high school grads with no degree? Why can't writers communicate directly with those in control of this forum (if you can call it that)? They don't even have a Help page -- they leave this up to other Hubbers to provide answers. We've both pushed the limits and got squashed. Other than the word "inappropriate," what are we to assume? I'm asking you to do this because you are one of the most balanced writers to whom I subscribe. Your comments are always generous, and you seem to possess a "common sense" approach toward writing that I think could be extremely useful in defining the boundaries. Just consider it.

      John Hansen 19 months ago from Queensland Australia

      Thanks for the great comment RJ. Yes, I admit I may be a little generous on the milk but serving two people it tends to increase the volume and make it extra fluffy. I also may have failed to advise to constantly stir the mixture and move it around with the spatula. Thanks for reminding me and I may add that. But, yes this experiment worked as this has become my most consistently viewed hub.

    • rjbatty profile image

      rjbatty 19 months ago from Irvine

      Jodah: Yeah, writing recipes for HubPages seems like a more successful way to go. Look at the response you got on this! I may have to try it out as an experiment myself.

      Until you've been censored by HubPages, you don't get the full sense of what the outfit is all about. You CANNOT express a totally controversial subject, without it being filtered out of existence. It's not really an open forum, and the people who seem to score higher points are talking about food recipes or pet care.

      Interestingly, we have an almost identical idea about how to form ideal scrambled eggs. My only exceptions to your recipe are (1) adding equal amounts of milk to the eggs. I think this is too much. I think about a third serves its purpose. (2) They key thing in making scrambled eggs is having a low burner setting (which you indicate), but also constantly stirring the mixture with a spatula. The constant stirring gives the eggs the opportunity to cook evenly. And even over a medium oven setting, the eggs will coalesce much faster than most people realize. Unless you like hard-scrambled (which I don't), you've got to keep moving the mixture around constantly -- even under medium heat. (3) It's unthinkable eating scrambled eggs without some kind of bread -- even a toasted muffin. You can pour the mixture onto toasted bread, but this becomes a kind of sandwich. It's more fun to eat the eggs between bites of bread. But this is a really minor point. Compare our preferences to what is being served daily at McDonald's. The scrambled eggs are like the equivalent to one of their meat patties. Yet, they make a fortune off this stuff.

      Hi Al, no I haven't just scrambled the whites but I'm sure it is ok. I know of the concerns about the cholesterol in the yolks but I have also read that the same cholesterol in eggs is actually good unless they are fried or cooked in oil. If boiled, poached or scrambled it is nothing to worry about.

      Hi Peg, thanks for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed my experimentall hub. Due to it's success I am quite sure there will be more like this. It seems I use more milk than anyone else but it works for me. Grape tomatoes...great addition. I may add them next time. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Shyron, thanks for the comment. Sorry you don't like eggs so thanks for reading this hub anyway. I hope your hubby likes this recipe. Look forward to reading your challenge response too. Thanks for the vote up and share too.

      What a clever post to combine a recipe with your poetry. Enjoyed the photos also! Looking forward to your next combination! I have never added that much milk to the eggs but do add all kinds of other things. Just cut in some grape tomatoes today for a different approach. Consider this shared! :)

      John! Love your recipe and your poem, but hate eggs. I will make them for Hubby.

      I accept the challenge and hope to publish later today.

      Voted up across the board and shared.

      I know Faith, I am as surprised as anyone. It just proved this experiment worked. My hub score is normally between 90 and 92, never been this close to 100 before. Glad you are enjoying President's Day even though you are stuck at home. Good luck with that ice storm. You just got me thinking, "Why don't we get a Prime Minister's Day holiday?" Thanks for reading.

      Woo hoo, look at you John at 98! You should get views into the thousands on this one, and with your creative poetry added on this one, sends it over the top. Congrats!

      Let's face it, people love fast and easy, yet great recipes ... but the added bonus is that you were able to write your beloved poetry.

      I am enjoying President's Day off here, yet we are unable to travel anywhere due to ice storm heading our way.

      Thanks for reading lady Guinevere, glad you found the humour in this. I was kind of being sarcastic to Google. You're right their thinking is scrambled and what they approve ever changing. So I'm just trying to give them what they want...sort of.

      Hahaha! I loved the poem and the recipe! HP doesn't like what Google doesn't like. Only thing wrong with that is Google does know wht it likes and keeps changing the rules all the time...A little scrambled if you ask me...pun intended.

      Haha Cam, this comment is a classic .. I can't stop laughing. Thanks for not referring to it as a poe... you know hub :) Glad you liked the scrambled eggs song and the actual recipe. Hope the scrambled eggs works out well. Having a good weekend here, hope you do too.

      I love this po... I mean recipe hub, Jodah. All the great poe.. food, like shallots, garlic, chives and poe... I mean parsley, sorry. The scrambled egg song with McCartney and Fallon was great. A song? That's sort of like a p... anyway, I think the idea of raising poets in the back yard is a good idea. Wait, they are called pullets, not poets. Sorry again. So, it's breakfast time here and I happen to have eggs in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe. Have a great weekend, John.

      Hi Sunshine, all those ingredients are great, but yes approximately equal milk..(I don't actually measure, just do it visually) .It makes them extra fluffy and light. Thank you for agreeing to try it.

      Huh?...Add the equivalent amount of milk to eggs! I rarely add milk to my scrambled eggs, surely not the equivalent, but I'll try this next time. I like this meal for dinner, not breakfast and I add sauteed peppers, onions and oregano. I sprinkle oregano on most of my meals. Thanks for the great tip and good luck with a HOTD! :))

      They look delicious. How can you miss with free range eggs and a good cooking technique? The garlic chives are a great addition.

      Yes, I will try it; that way I might make better scrambled eggs than he does!

      Thank Ann, we all have our favourite recipes don't we. You can never admit someone else's is better than that of your partner and people have different tastes anyway. We use three eggs per person but I realise everyone wouldn't. By all means try this recipe though and see what you think.

      A recipe from John? Can this be? As you said, not expected. However, there was a poem so that's ok - a funny one too.

      I'll try this, although my partner makes the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted so that will be hard to beat. We use 2 eggs per person and one 'for the pot' as we say. Yours is probably richer if it has 3 per person.

      Soft and fluffy are definitely the key words.

      Bon appetit!

      Thanks Blinky, I agree soft and fluffy is how scrambled eggs should be.

    • blinky626 profile image

      IMO soft scrambled eggs are the best - simply use a pot and quickly expose it to heat and take it off, while scrambling an egg in the pot. do this repeatedly and you'll end up with the softest and fluffiest eggs!

      Hi Save Hyper Online, I don't really like soft fried eggs and such either. When scrambling them just keep turning the mixture over so it cooks right through and is light an fluffy without overcooking. It only takes a few minutes to cook right through. Adding cheese is fine.

      Hey Kim, Glad you like this scrambled egg recipe. Don't know that I'm up to tackling apple pie, but maybe toasted cheese sandwiches next :)

      HOTD, I doubt it, but we just have to wait and see. I suppose anything is possible.

      Thanks for reading and your kind comment Peg. Yes you can always rely on eggs even if you don't have much money for anything else. Been there, done that, but I still love them. I had to find a way of incorporating a poem with a recipe :)
