Ketchup on Eggs: Gross or Awesome?
This morning as I tried to shake off a long night, a coworker stormed in boasting that they were about to eat an egg sandwich. Once it was unwrapped, her dismay was bellowed out because the purveyor of said sammich had forgotten to put ketchup on it. The conversation that followed went something like this (at least in my head):
Her: Ah crap, they didn’t put any ketchup on!
Me: Good, putting ketchup on eggs is wrong and foul and makes you a bad person.
Her: No way, it’s delicious!
Me: Ketchup is only a valid condiment for french fries and overcooked hamburgers. It should never touch the pillowy goodness of an egg. You will never convince me otherwise.
This seems to be an eternal debate I find myself getting into. Ketchup on eggs is one of those things you either love or abhorr. I’d think it’s also something that’s constant: Either you eat eggs with ketchup all the time, or you never do — it’s not a “hmm, maybe this time I’ll use ketchup” thing. Ketchup-on-eggers… is that true? It should also be noted that I find ketchup to be altogether disgusting for the most part, so I’m a very biased jury in this trial.
Anyway, I’m curious about the percentages on this. I won’t question your taste if you do put ketchup on eggs … I’ll just think your breakfasts are gross.
