    I eat anywhere between 0 and 14. It varies a lot.

    (And yep, it does seem like a weird question, :lol: )

    Sometimes none sometimes 3 or 4.

    Occasionally use one as a binder in meatloaf or home made burgers and occasionally have 1 or 2 boiled, scrambled or fried for breakfast.

    I don't think I have counted but on the other hand I don't ration them either.

    Currently my mushroom omelettes have three eggs each in them. This is because I am a pig and this size just fits into a compartment of a divided plate which I then put in the freezer. I have a couple of those a week. The other compartments might have beens, sausage or mash or whatever.

    One evening snack might be waffles with an attempt to fill the holes with egg but it usually spreads around a bit. Using a bread baking tin to confine it is a useful tip. This is a two egg job and I may do that a couple of times a week also.

    It seems I might eat anything up to 10 per week

    As little as 4 and up to 10 when I'm off work, I can easily use 4 eggs in a cheese 'n' bacon omelette.

    Usually 14. I have a 2-egg omelette, cooked in butter, for breakfast almost every morning. Sometimes I add cheese, sometimes mushrooms, but usually plain.

    None - I just can't stomach them. I eat half an egg and can't even finish it.

    Between 0-7 a week .. I enjoy a nice runny egg or two, done in the microwave along with my bacon and toms. :D

    I also have egg mayonnaise sandwich filler for breakfast about twice a week = that's included in the maxium of 7.

    Not keen on omelettes though.

    I forget to say how many I eat.

    Loads. Sometimes.

    And none. Sometimes.

    Eggs are good. Certainly not to be feared.

    Chips ... I put my bacon on the George Foreman and while that's cooking, I put a wee knob of butter in a small round microwavable container and slam an egg in there, making sure to prick the yoke a few times to stop it exploding. I slice my tomatoes and put them in another small container and put both in the micro for a minute. The egg usually takes a minute if in micro on it's own but just over a minute if it's in at the same time as tomatoes.

    Omelettes and scrambled eggs in micro is easy peasy and takes only a minute or three at most.

    I wouldn't be without my microwave because I use it for cooking everything ... stews, soups, veggies. If I want steak, chops etc, I grill them on the GF.

    If you're cooking for one or two It's really easy to cook with a micro rather than just use it for heating up meals. And it takes a fraction of the time. Far less washing up too ... no heavy pots and pans. :D

    At least 7. If I am baking using Almond Flour the quantity can easily double although I wouldn't be eating all of anything baked :lol:
