pretty simple question. do you use olive oil, canola oil, butter, what? growing up butter was always used but theres got to be something better than that

I've always used "PAM." You can't go wrong with canola and/or olive, though I never tried olive with eggs

Pam is what i like to use the most. Don't have to guess when it comes to the extra cals of butters and oils.

yes it is a no stick spray that has no calories.

It comes in different flavors or what not too.

Butter, garlic, plain etc..

hahaha...read the label on the can of PAM...all it is presurized canola oil. you can buy a pump spray and fill it up with your liquid grease of choice.

Just use a Teflon pan, no need to put anything.

But the best thing would be to eat them hard-boiled.

Pam is not calorie free - as an oil it is a fat - and fat has calories.

If you look at the serving size it will say something like 'for 1 spray' and a 'spray' may mean 1/4 of a second - which is near impossible. The companies make the serving sizes so small because it means that it falls under a 'calorie cut-off' per serve and it can technically be labelled 'calorie free'.


So - Like all cooking oils, use it carefully.

I use olive oil. At this point, I need the calories.

You might want to rethink that...margarine tends to be 100% pure trans-fat.

Olive oil for me. I used to cook bacon first and then use its own lard for eggs... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

But yeah, Olive Oil + Herbs and garlic salt. No pepper on my eggs

I hate using any grease to cook my eggs, nothing like a nonstick ban with just the eggs on there. Now I can just get the taste of the eggs with out the butter n **** on there.

If you insist, but I don't touch trans-fat even on refeeds. Seems like a one-way trip to heart disease. Whatever.

This,

However:

Don't stress out over putting 10 calories worth of oil on your pan, IMO ... Just don't go nuts :P

What's wrong with butter? If anything, butter would probably provide the most creaminess taste in conjunction with eggs.

Olive oil would work well, canola oil, PAM spray (which yes, has calories), coconut oil etc. Your're most likely using a non stick Teflon coated skillet - which doesn't absolutely need oil. But fat adds to the taste and still makes it easier to flip.

olive oil makes it taste a little bitter, but eggs mixed with milk and butter tastes great

I usually use butter, which is healthy (contrary to a lot of misinformation out there). I tried olive oil once, and it ruined the taste in my opinion.

Ah, no one has mentioned this yet: bacon grease. I just fried some bacon then used the leftover grease to fry eggs. A breakfast fit for a king.

I love frying up some bacon till it's crisp and then using that to cook the Eggs. Gives them a nice porky flavor.

I can tell you folks from first hand experience that Pam on non-stick cookware is not a good idea and you'll find yourself replacing pans more frequently than if you use a thin coat of Canola or other oil.

I could see how a zombie thread being resurrected after six years could seem a little off-putting, but negging someone for it is being a jerk.
