Egg Thing

Of all the things that my dad taught me about eating, the most healthy is Egg Thing. He never called it that. He used to have a name for it, but I can’t remember what it was called. I’ve called it Egg Thing for years, but I rarely made it for myself. It’s very filling and fairly low in calories, but the way my dad taught me to make it, well… it looks kind of gross.

So, after years of making it for myself, I’ve finally found a way to make Egg Thing appealing. It looks good, doesn’t it?

Here’s the recipe:

Egg Thing


  • One Egg
  • 1 Tbsp. of mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. of mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. of ketchup
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  • Using an egg separator, separate the yolk from the egg white. Set aside the yolk.
  • Mix the mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup in with the egg whites.
  • Spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour the mixture into pan and add the egg yolk on top of it.
  • Cook for four minutes on medium heat.

When my dad made Egg Thing, he would just crack the egg in the pan and squirt the condiments onto the egg, which was less than appealing. By mixing in the condiments with the egg white, it tastes the same and looks better.

By the way, don’t just mix them all together with the yolk. I tried the scrambled egg version of Egg Thing and it changed the egg texture so that it stuck to the pan, was too thin and difficult to eat. If you want easy, just squirt the stuff on the top of a normal egg.

My dad is one of the people in my life who actually TAUGHT me how to binge, but Egg Thing is one of those dishes that is relatively healthy and very filling. Try it and see if you like it!

Egg Thing is featured in the online fictional serial, Merriton, in the following episodes:

    I think you probably meant to say Tsp rather than Tbsp for the condiments on the Egg Thing. Love your blog. Read it every day.

    Nope, its a Tablespoon of each, not a teaspoon. With that much condiment squirted all over an egg, it looks pretty gross. Mixing it in with the egg white makes it look much more appealing.

    Best, Laura
