Annually observed on June 3, aka Sunday, National Egg Day is upon us.

With the food holiday upon us and all, let’s talk eggs. National Egg Day is annually observed on June 3 — that’s Sunday — so, naturally, the data researchers at Three Bridges questioned 1,000 Americans’ allegiances to the yolk with, “How do you like your eggs?”

I mean, what else would a pasta-heavy, chef-driven brand of refrigerated meals ask?

Makes total sense.

Nonetheless, the results were pretty interesting. Thirty-one percent of the survey’s participants, for starters, take their eggs scrambled, but both the over-easy variation (18 percent) and omelets (17 percent) weren’t far behind. 

Fifty-one percent of people also said they eat eggs two to three times a week, while 10 percent chow down on them between four and six times a week. What’s more, 6 percent said they eat eggs for breakfast every day.

Talk about devotion.

Moving on to toppings, 47 percent of people prefer to sprinkle their eggs with cheese more than anything else. Anything else being bacon, which 24 percent of participants said is their favorite egg dressing — followed by sausage (9 percent), mushrooms (6 percent), onions, red pepper or herbs (4 percent), and, finally, spinach (3 percent).

Thank goodness, though: 39 percent of Americans believe putting ketchup on eggs is straight-up gross, meaning one in four thinks the practice is perfectly acceptable. Choose your Egg Day dining mates wisely.
