While scrambled, over-easy and hard-boiled eggs may be breakfast classics, eggs — no matter how they're cooked — can star in lunch and dinner recipes as well, and just one egg can transform a simple dish into a hearty vegetarian meal. If you have leftover tomato sauce on hand, warm it up on the stove, crack in a few eggs and call the plate Eggs in Purgatory. Making vegetable fried rice? Add extra protein by topping it with a sunny-side-up egg. Given eggs' versatility, it's easy to experiment with new egg-topped creations by starting with your tried-and-true favorites, then dressing them up with whites and yolks cooked your way.

Food Network Magazine follows suit in its recipe for Baked Eggs and Beans on Toast (pictured above), a weeknight-friendly dish that's a cinch to prepare. After sauteing onions with tomato paste, add a splash of honey and Worcestershire sauce for sweet and salty bites, then meaty navy beans to create a thick, flavorful mixture in which to cook the eggs. It's important to start the beans and eggs in an ovenproof skillet, as the combination will move right from the stove to the oven. Once the eggs are set, slide them onto slices of crunchy toasted bread, and finish each with the tender beans and some fresh grape tomato-parsley salad.
