Eggs are tiny miracle workers in the kitchen. They can be stored in the fridge for a long time and they are cheap, hard to mess up, and one of the most versatile ingredients you can use. Really, what’s not to love?
So let eggs be your go-to breakfast champion. From soft scrambled eggs to make-ahead breakfast sandwiches and egg casseroles, there’s nothing eggs can’t do to help you kickstart your morning routine.
Basic Egg Recipes to Know by Heart
There are unlimited ways to prepare an egg, but it’s good to start by mastering the basics and build on those key recipes. Once you have an excellent base for an omelette or scrambled eggs, it’s easy to add any add-ins to make it that much better.
Easy Variations on Scrambled Eggs
Once you have the basics down, up the ante on your pan of scrambled eggs with fresh vegetables, tangy goat cheese, or salsa.
Breakfast sandwiches are always a good idea. Especially since a number of these recipes can be made in advance and stashed in the freezer.
Breakfast Salads and Bowls
Want to get more vegetables in your morning routine? Breakfast salads and grain bowls are a great way to do it, and a fried, poached, or boiled egg adds a boost of protein to make them more filling.
Frittatas and Egg Casseroles
Frittatas and egg casseroles are an easy solution to feed the whole family; welcome just about any veggies, cheese, or meat you have on hand; and can be made ahead of time.
