Parmesan Eggs

Take your morning eggs to the next level by nestling them in a crispy halo of Parmesan. The eggs will cook nicely while the cheese becomes an irresistibly lacy cracker, what Italians call a “frico” or cheese crisp. These eggs are lovely eaten by themselves but even better when served on top of avocado toast, in a breakfast sandwich or perhaps on top of a bed of arugula — the possibilities are endlessly delicious!

Gyeran Jjim

You can create this Korean fluffy egg banchan for a Korean barbecue meal at home or for the centerpiece of a breakfast or lunch. Traditionally, there are fewer eggs and more liquid to give the dish more of a silken, soft tofu-like texture. We adjusted the ratio so that you get the drama of a rising souffleed top as it cooks.

Chinese Steamed Eggs

These custardy, absurdly supple steamed eggs might seem intimidating, but they are most definitely not. We added a couple of extra steps to make them absolutely foolproof: First, covering the eggs with foil guarantees that you won't get large pools of water in your ramekins; secondly, and allowing the eggs to gently finish cooking in the steamer after the initial cooking time ensures perfectly just-set eggs every time.

Monte Cristo Omelet Sandwich

If you are a fan of Monte Cristos, you'll love this riff on the popular Indian street food egg sandwich. It's every bit as crisp on the outside, ooey-gooey on the inside and dusted all over with confectioners' sugar. A square-shaped bread is ideal: It enables neater folding of the omelet. You will also want to use a nonstick skillet that is at least ten inches in diameter -- the omelet won't fit in a smaller pan.

Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon

For an elegant breakfast in a flash, Rachael Ray folds smoked salmon into her six-minute scrambled eggs. Crisp, fresh chives add bright color and a subtle onion flavor.

No-Worry Poached Eggs

Poaching eggs can give even the most experienced cook anxiety. Will the eggs stick to the bottom of the pot? Will I break a yolk? Will they all run together? How can I tell when they are done? On top of it all, because it takes a little bit of time to gently crack each egg and lower it into the simmering water, they aren't always done at the same time. With all this in mind, we set out to crack (ha!) the code. By putting the eggs in before the hot water, they hold their shape and cook at the same time. This method works as well for 2 eggs as it does for 8, so if you are thinking of making eggs benedict for the fam this weekend, this will take the worry out.

Eggs Benedict and Easy Hollandaise Sauce

Pesto Fried Eggs

Cooking eggs in pesto is a great alternative to frying in butter and an easy way to enhance their flavor. When the pesto is heated, the oil separates from the rest of the ingredients and gives your eggs crispy, fried edges. While this dish is delicious on its own, try serving the eggs with sliced fresh tomatoes and mozzarella for a take on Caprese salad or on toasted sourdough bread for a quick meal.

Heavy Cream Fried Eggs

Rather than cooking eggs in butter or oil, you can “fry” them in heavy cream and upgrade their flavor at the same time. As the heavy cream boils, the liquid butter fat separates from the butter solids, which then start to brown -- essentially frying the eggs and imparting a nutty flavor. Here, we season the heavy cream with fresh thyme, garlic and red pepper flakes, creating the perfect egg topper for avocado toast but the possibilities are endless. The secret to success is starting with a thin layer of cream in a nonstick skillet and a tight-fitting lid. If you don’t have a lid, no worries; a heatproof plate or a baking sheet will work just fine.

Zucchini Noodle Egg Nests
