While eggs are likely part of your weekend brunch routine, there's no reason these protein-packed beauties can't make an appearance at during the week — at any time of day. They cook up in mere minutes and are hearty enough to keep you feeling full, which is why they're often called upon to beef up meatless meals.

In Food Network Kitchen's 25-minute recipe for Baked Eggs with Salsa Verde (pictured above), eggs are the centerpiece of the dish, which is a top-rated fan favorite. Think of this fuss-free meal as eggs in purgatory gone green; while the traditional dish features eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce, this version lets a tomatillo-based salsa verde act as the sauce. Studded with garlic and jalapeno, this simple homemade sauce is blended until smooth, but the chefs in Food Network Kitchen advise, "If pressed for time, use a mild store-bought salsa, either red or green." Once the eggs have cooked in the salsa, blanket them with Monterey Jack cheese for a gooey finish, and sprinkle with fragrant cilantro before serving.
