Default Toast and Scrambled Eggs

Am I the only person that likes hot toast and firm (not watery) scrambled eggs for breakfast in the Lido? Seems hard to find on some cruise lines.

I'm a runny egg person & there is no chance of hot toast!! Did I imagine this or did ships used to have one of those conveyor belt toaster things, they were crap but at least the toast was warm. Celebrity scrambled eggs are superb, all I had for breakfast.

Default Toast and Scrambled Eggs

I never order toast on a cruise ship or in a restaurant because it's just as you say: always cold. Eggs in a buffet are usually overcooked because they it in those hot pans too long.

Don't mind the toast being cold too much, at least the butter stays where you put it, it's when it's rock hard I don't care for it.

You want firm scrambled eggs? It always looks to me (on Princess anyway) that the ones on the steam table are WAY TOO firm but you might like them.

As to hot toast (again on Princess), you just put them through that toaster machine (does English muffins and bagels, too) ... maybe twice and you should get what you want I would hope.

I always order my Egg Beater cheese omelet at that special order station, so maybe you could order your firm scrambled eggs there, too?

I would just like Baked Beans on hot wholemeal (rye) toast and decent hot coffee. Very healthy it is too.

Not a lot to ask really.

Annie

PS I am allergic to eggs and cannot eat bacon. Almost vegetarian at breakfast.

PPS If I brought my own coffee, would they give me boiling water?

Henry, I remember now you have some food intolerances.

Baked beans on hot wholemeal toast - as enjoyable as a fillet steak - JMHO. Probably because I have it for breakfast often and I am seriously hungry at breakfast time.

Oh my, I would die, literally from steak withdrawal. I need a good steak at least once a week. Did I post an update on the cooking thread, that I came last week to find that our nanny had broiled the steaks to death? I almost cried.



As for the eggs, its egg beater omelettes for me. THey must have some onions, peppers, mushrooms, and meat of some kind. I usually end up with ham, because that is what they all have, but I love leftover steak in my omelets.

I can't go back as far as Henry but I certainly have not eaten steak this millenium and I live in the homeland of Aberdeen Angus.

I usually ask for two "over easy" eggs at the omelette station. The scrambled eggs are usually a bit over cooked for my taste. They can be good when they put out a fresh batch.

In regard to toast; forget it. It's always cold and rock hard. I have seen the toast machines on a few ships. As Nut said, I think it was Princess.

I'm weird in the fact that I can't eat scrambled eggs without ketchup. It is the only eggs I put it on but if I don't have ketchup I don't eat scrambled eggs.

Take care,
Mike

Thumbs up Toast and eggs

HMMM ... I hate runny eggs too.

I really can't remember having any problem with the scrambled eggs on any cruise line. They are almost always to my taste. And most cruise lines these days have learned to put out salsa for the scrambled eggs too.

And all the buffets I have been to lately have still been using the little rack machines for fresh hot toast, muffins, bagels and so on. I haven't run into cold soggy toast that I recall either.

Are you perhaps cruising on the mega mega ships? I haven't been on any of them ...

Everyone has their own likes and dislikes. I personally can't understand putting hot sauce on everything or not trying new foods. Or not getting around the "yuck" factor. Just because something isn't what you've eaten all your life or isn't from the prime cuts of a cow, pig or chicken doesn't mean it's bad.

Too each their own. Food is an adventure and their are so many adventures to be had.

Take care,
Mike

Mike you are a food warrior...you do what we see on tv....we shudder, you open your mouth for more...you get a bravo....I would do ketchup and eggs before a wriggly worm,or a 100 year old egg...probably the most subjective thing is food...

There are some things I can't get past on the YUK factor...completely unreasonable I admit...I'll eat almost anything out of the sea, but snails or bugs...no way.

Our experience with Princess is that they have the toast machine behind the counter but will make you fresh hot toast. NCL had the machine right out next to the coffee station but it was attended.

I've tried reindeer (not so hot) and bird's nest soup (great)! Of course, escargot - always get 2 orders onboard!

And, ketchup goes on corned beef hash, hamburgers, hot dogs and steaks but never on potatoes of any kind!

Just had topsy turvy night for dinner, egg omlet with bacon and toast. I pretty much enjoy the scrambled eggs on a cruise, don't care for runny scrambled though, so I never had a problem. There are always too many good sweet rolls, so I pass on the toast.

Talking Exotic foods

I don't mind being a little bit exotic.

At the Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi we had zebra, wildebeest, and crocodile.

In Uruguay at the barbeque at the gaucho estancia we had grilled sweetbreads.

Right here in my hometown we can get ostrich burgers.

On board the ship, I never miss escargot!

And for breakfast, I will break open an enclosed immature zygote cell of an avian, chop up some chunks of the rear leg of a porcine creature soaked in brine, throw in some aged bits of coagulated excretions from the modified sweat glands of a bovine, and then cover it with a delicious sauce of puree of the reproductive organ of a plant and bulbous roots seasoned with boiled juice from a tall grass. Yes, I do put ketchup on my ham and cheese omelette!
