I never used to like eggs. I can remember being about 3, sat at the table with a boiled egg and toast soldiers to dip in it for breakfast. I never did finish it. I enjoyed dipping the soldiers into the yolk, but that was as far as it went. In fact anything eggy in nature my palate did not take to. I got persuaded to eat scrambled egg for a while, but only as it was renamed golden fluff. This lasted a short while until I cottoned on.
As I got older I could manage a small omelette every now and then, but only if it was completely doused in cheese so I couldn’t taste the egg. This has lasted a good 30 years from that initial boiled egg experience. Even the smell of boiled eggs made my stomach churn. However in recent years I have discovered that I don’t mind a fried egg now and then with sausage or gammon with chips. I like dipping my chips into the runny yolk, and I can tolerate the white part. Omelettes don’t need as much cheese, and I can eat scrambled egg, but I still think a boiled egg is a step to far.
However it goes to show that something that you detested as a child, you might actually enjoy now if you gave it another go.
What foods did you hate as a child, but would actually eat by choice now? There are still plenty on my list that I don’t think I’d ever like, but eggs I will…….sometimes!
