Alton Brown could be a short-order cook. Not that he wants to be—in fact, he prefers ordering eggs out to making them himself—but he could definitely handle the job: Food Network Magazine watched him do it when they flew down to his Good Eats studio in Atlanta for a lesson on proper egg cooking.

He whipped up perfect iterations of whatever order they called out: Poached! Scrambled! Over easy, please! Food Network Magazine figured Alton was the man to ask about eggs—he devotes seven whole chapters of his three-volume cookbook series to the subject.
