comment Why not pork stock/gravy?
I've never experienced a fish stock, myself; seems like you'd have to collect quite a few heads and bones to get anything useful out of it.

comment How to prepare eggs in shape suited for bagel?
@Joe: I'll take a closer look next time I need to eat one of those things, as it's possible I imagined it, but I am 95% positive that I saw them take out pre-cooked egg. It's probably already warm, too, they just get it "hot" so it'll melt the cheese.

@FoodTasted: I'd honestly just shell out the $1 for a cookie cutter, but I guess if you're on a really tight budget then a short can will work too.

comment What can I do with a failed bread?
I was thinking bread pudding, personally. Or fondue.

There are metal egg poachers available that are meant to be submerged in a saucepan. But this will obviously make poached eggs, not fried or scrambled; I love Eggs Benedict and Florentine myself, but I'm not sure that the OP wants a leaky breakfast sandwich.

comment Why did my “goat cheese espuma” flop?
I should point out that dryness really isn't the problem - the soft unripened goat cheese is really quite moist compared to most cheese (although dryer than something like brie). But it's just way too thick and rich by itself to purée without the help of some liquid.

comment Why did my “goat cheese espuma” flop?
I finally got around to trying this again and it actually worked. I actually needed to add quite a bit of milk (I think around half a cup), and I doubled the oil. Of course that landed me with about 30% more liquid than the whipper is capable of handling at a time, so the actual quantities would have to be adjusted too.

comment My tea bags are expired, can I still use them?
@Jefromi: Even so, just means you need to steep 'em longer to get the same flavour. Sort of like old spices - if they haven't been kept properly (i.e. in the freezer) you might need to increase the amount.

@Mrs. Garden: Yeah, I really wouldn't recommend the microwave for cooking eggs. Reheating them for 10 seconds or so usually won't hurt them too much, though.

@Joe: Some people may microwave eggs, but I've seen them make the breakfast sandwiches right in front of me at a few different chains and unless I was hallucinating, the eggs were already cooked before they went in there. They weren't in a bowl, they were wrapped in wax paper or something.
