You’ve likely had them scrambled, over easy, poached, fried and sunny side up. But have you ever had Eggs in Purgatory? How about mixed with spaghetti or cooked inside a bell pepper? Check out our straightforward and creative egg recipes below and embrace the endless possibilities that lie within these thin white shells.

Food Network Magazine’s deceptively simple recipe for Eggs in Purgatory (pictured above) takes just minutes to cook and only requires three ingredients: pasta sauce (store bought is a-ok!), Parmesan cheese and eggs. To make this indulgent breakfast a substantial lunch option, slide the saucy eggs onto thick-cut toasted ciabatta bread and top with more grated Parmesan.

Celebrate everything you love about omelets without the hassle of flipping them by making Food.com’s recipe for Eggs in Bell Peppers. Just pour whisked eggs into boiled peppers, top with vegetables and bake until the peppers are softened and the eggs are firm.

Giada’s Grilled Tuscan Steak With Fried Egg and Goat Cheese from Cooking Channel is a stepped-up Italian version of classic steak and eggs. One bite of this impressive dish and you’ll notice how the runny yolk seeps into the grilled beef and combines with softened goat cheese for an otherworldly combination of smooth, chewy and meaty textures.

While you won’t be able to see the eggs inside Food 2’s Bacon and Pea Spaghetti Carbonara dish, this pasta owes its silky smooth sauce to our yoke-and-white friends. Mixed with Parmesan and cream, whisked eggs melt from the heat of the pasta and form a luxurious, thick coating over each and every noodle. Made with hearty bacon and peas, this dish is a complete meal in a bowl.
