To celebrate Easter week, we’ve got a 10 Words… blog post with a twist. How do you like your eggs in the morning?

  1. fried - a fried egg is cooked by cracking an egg into hot oil or butter in frying pan
    On Sundays I have fried egg and bacon for breakfast. 
  2. sunny-side-up - a sunny-side-up egg is only fried on one side so the yolk remains a deep yellow colour and is runny
    She preferred her eggs sunny-side-up to over-easy.
  3. over-easy - an over-easy fried egg is flipped over so that the top is also cooked lightly 
    She preferred over-easy eggs to sunny-side-up.
  4. soft-boiledsoft-boiled egg is boiled while still in its shell until the eggwhite becomes solid 
    Do you like to dip toast soldiers into your soft-boiled egg?
  5. hard-boiled - a hard-boiled egg is boiled while still in its shell until it both the eggwhite and the yolk become solid
    Hard-boiled eggs are great for eating on the go.
  6. devilled - devilled eggs are made by removing the yolks from halved hard-boiled eggs and mixing them with condiments and spices before spooning them back into the egg whites
    The devilled eggs were very spicy.

    I am learning how to cook poached eggs.
  9. omelette - an omelette is made by beating eggs into a mixture which is folded with cheese, meat, or vegetables and cooked in a frying pan until set
    We made a cheese and mushroom omelette.
  10. frittata - a frittata is an Italian dish, similar to an omelette, in which beaten eggs are mixed with chopped meats and vegetables and cooked on both sides in a frying pan
    My mother added sliced potato to the frittata.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
