Our Best Ideas for Eggs

Eggs can be the building block of so many incredible recipes, from savory breakfasts to unforgettable desserts (as long as you avoid a few common pitfalls). Packed with protein, eggs have some remarkable qualities that allow them to be transformed into all kinds of textures and consistencies. Whether you’re looking to serve perfectly poached eggs at an elegant brunch at home or just whip up a quick lunch of scrambled eggs for yourself, eggs can come to the rescue. Special occasions can be made grand with a luxurious quiche or vegetable-filled frittata and afternoon tea wouldn’t be the same without perfectly trimmed egg salad sandwiches.

One of the most impressive egg dishes has to be deviled eggs, which will surely be the first item gobbled up at any party. Once you’ve boiled the eggs and removed the yolks, mash them with a simple mix of mayo, mustard, pickles, vinegar and just a touch of sugar for the perfect appetizer your guests will love.

Pesto Fried Eggs

Flavorful pesto can take the place of butter when frying eggs for a zesty twist that’s a bit lower in fat. The oil in the pesto helps create crisp fried edges and goes perfectly on a slice of sourdough bread or alongside some sliced fresh tomatoes.

Parmesan Eggs

For a fun, alternative twist to simple fried eggs, try these crispy Parmesan eggs that are fried in a halo of cheese. The cheese transforms to a cracker-like texture, known as a “frico” in Italian, that acts as the perfect complement to runny yolks.
