No matter your Instagram following, your filtering prowess or your like-to-minute ratio, nothing truly proves #deliciousness like an old-fashioned, ready-set-go contest. Every other week, we’re coming your way in search of the greatest creations made in your very own kitchen. When we call out the theme on Instagram, put your cooking skills to the test by whipping up your go-to Food Network recipe, snapping a photo and tagging #FoodNetworkFaves for your chance to be featured on FN Dish!

Last week  we asked you to get cracking with the best egg dishes of all time. And the truth is, we were surprised at the sheer beauty of these egg images; we couldn't stop squirming in our seats over the runniest egg sandwiches, most-glorious omelets and all other examples of egg-crackin’, perfectly flipped glory you sent our way. Scrolling through our feed gave way to satisfyingly eggy sandwiches, tarts, quiches, hashes and then some.

But that's enough talk. We are pleased to introduce this week's #FoodNetworkFaves winners!

Our mouths gaped at the sight of @joplinrox's egg and cheese croissant sandwich, with all that oozing cheese and that buttery, flaky foundation. To get your eggy croissant fix in true comfort-food form, bake a Prosciutto and Provolone Croissant Bread Pudding for early morning eating. In the meantime, we'll just ogle at this cheesy beauty.

It looks like  @pam_mathewson is a 'grammer after our own hearts. Just like our very own Breakfast Pizza recipe, her breakfast pizza comes with a sprinkling of crispy bacon and a helping of fried eggs on top. Yup, we'd take a slice of that for breakfast.

@lisaflourgirl tops off her slow-cooked kalua pork hash with rainbow chard the right way: with a sunny-side-up egg just waiting to pop on top. It looks so good, we'd take it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Make your own egg-topped likeness at home with our very own Corned Beef Hash recipe.

@haleythu's colorful dish proves that eggs are right at home even on the most-elegant plates. Over a bed of creamy cheese polenta sits veggie-laden ratatouille, plus arugula for a peppery bite and some pickled shallots. With a Parmesan crisp and a few sprigs of basil, the egg crowning this jewel of a dish is, irrefutably, the cherry on top. If having eggs for dinner sounds like a great idea, get our best breakfast ideas that work at any hour.

Want in on the fun? Stay tuned next week for our next Instagram call-out. Happy cooking!

The Top 5 Foodborne Illnesses, and How To Avoid Them

I’ve been teaching and preaching about food safety for over 12 years and am glad to see more focus put on this issue. These days the food supply is brimming with food bugs – luckily, we can do something about it. A newly released study from the University of Florida found that the top 14 food microorganisms kill more than 1,300 people each year and cost over 14 million dollars in healthcare costs. Let’s stop these bad boys from making us sick (and costing us a fortune)— read up on the top 5 and what you can do to stop them.
