We all know eggs are the perfect food.

They start our mornings, save our dinners, provide the perfect late night snack, and have the power to get us through the worst hangovers of our lives.

So here’s a guide to cooking every kind. Bookmark it. Print it. Remember it. Who knows, one day it might save your life.*

*Maybe not, but it might save you from sad desk lunch, which is basically just as important.

The sunny-side-up egg is the King Of Instagram Foods and can take many forms.

This one is a FRIED egg, and if it doesn’t have golden-brown edges, well, it’s not fried.

A hard-boiled egg is basically the easiest thing you can make in a kitchen; all you need is a stove, a pot of water and a timer.

Still, there are some things you need to know. That green ring around the yolk? Yeah, that’s an overcooked egg. Hard to peel? There’s a trick for that.

And then you can make THESE deviled eggs.

Halve peeled hard-boiled eggs lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a medium bowl (save the whites). Using a fork, smash the yolks into a paste and add some mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Maybe you like chopped up scallions or pickles in there, too. Who knows? Go crazy. Just make sure it tastes amazing. Fill a ziplock bag with this ~amazing mixture~ and snip a little hole in the corner. Fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture, then sprinkle some paprika and chives over the top.

If you really want perfect scrambled eggs, you gotta use a nonstick skillet.

I own one JUST so I can make scrambled eggs and omelets. It’s true. And you’ll be using butter. Lots of it.

And then you can make THIS breakfast sandwich.

Pile your scrambled eggs high and proud on a toasted kaiser roll or English muffin, top the eggs with a slice of *American Cheese*, some crispy bacon and too much hot sauce.

The perfect soft boiled egg has a just-set yolk, with the center still slightly runny, almost jammy.

To me, it’s kind of like if a fried egg and a hard-boiled egg had a baby. So, yeah, it’s the perfect food.

Then you can class up your store-bought ramen like THIS.

Cook store bought noodles as per usual. For the broth, use as much of the seasoning packet as you like (I use about half), then go ahead and add some soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and a splash of rice wine vinegar. Top with crushed chile flakes and add bamboo shoots, a handful of herbs or chopped scallions, a few sheets of seaweed snacks (!!) and half of a perfectly soft boiled egg.
