포치드 에그(poached egg), 또는 수란이라는 이름으로 유명한 달걀 요리를 능가하는 새로운 달걀 조리법이 요즘 미국에선 유행이다.
일명, '구름 달걀.' 두둥실 떠있는 구름 속에 태양 같은 노른자가 살포시 담긴 귀여운(?) 느낌을 주는 요리다. 전자레인지로 달걀 프라이드를 만드는 비법만큼이나 유용한 정보이니 한 번 시도해 보시라.
1. 흰자와 노른자를 나누되 노른자가 망가지지 않게 유지한다.
2. 소금, 후추, 등으로 가미한다.
3. 흰자가 하얗게 뭉칠 때까지 휘핑한다.
4. 뭉친 흰자 일부를 움푹하게 한 후 노른자를 얹는다.
5. 약 8분 동안 굽는다.
6. 토스트에 올려 먹는다.

This dish is not for the faint of heart. Conventionally sold as a street food in the Philippines, balut (or balot) is a developing duck embryo that’s boiled alive and eaten straight out of the shell.

This samosa-like food envelops a whole egg in a pastry triangle with onion, tuna, harissa, and parsley. Then the whole thing is deep-fried and sometimes garnished with capers and cheese. Photo Credit: thinkstock
Scotch eggs probably originated in London, despite their name, but no matter where they came from, hard-boiled eggs wrapped in sausage, breaded, and deep-fried are an ingenious invention. Photo Credit: thinkstock How People Eat Eggs Around The World
