We Love Eggs!

Eggs are designed to sustain life and include many needed nutritional elements. Not only are they full of nutrition, but they also are easy to prepare, versatile, pair well with other ingredients, and with so many flavor profiles!

Why we love them:

  • Filling. Eggs are a satisfying breakfast food and keep you full longer. This means you’re less likely to snack on empty calories.
  • A healthy option. They are one of the most nutritious single-food items you can eat.
  • Low calorie. A large egg contains 77 calories. The egg white has 6 grams of protein. The yolk has 5 grams of healthy fat.

Egg Packed Recipes

There are plenty of recipes that use eggs! Many egg recipes only call for 1-2 eggs. To make the eggs over easy, sunny side up, boiled, poached, a fried egg or a breakfast sandwich only requires 1 egg.

Scrambled eggs use at least 2, but can be made with more. For Omelets and Quiches use 2-3 eggs per serving/recipe.

Other recipes require several eggs like Frittatas (about 6 eggs) and Oven Baked Eggs (about 12 eggs for a 9×13 pan), or a large batch of French Toast. These egg breakfast ideas are great for feeding crowds.

Egg Tips

  • How to tell if your eggs are still good. Eggs are typically good even after the expiration date has passed. Check your eggs with the sink or float test:
    • Add 2 tablespoons of salt in a glass with 2 cups of cold water. If the egg sinks it is OK to eat. Discard any eggs that float.
  • Cooking eggs. Whisk right before pouring, or the airy froth will simply disappear and you’ll have to re-whisk. Don’t overcook. Add plenty of seasoning.

different ways to cook eggs

Eggs are a wonderful breakfast food. They pair well alongside many other dishes or they can stand alone as a main dish. Prepare eggs in a variety of ways.

Here are 10 popular methods:

  1. Scrambled eggs – This is a favorite of our egg breakfast ideas. I like adding cheddar cheese to my scrambled eggs.
  2. Hard-boiled – The egg yolk is cooked through. This takes about 8-12 minutes.
  3. Soft boil – The egg whites are partially cooked, like a custard, and the yolk is warm and runny. This only takes 4-5 minutes of boiling.
  4. Omelet – Traditionally, each omelet is a single serving, but I cut them in half for my younger kids.
  5. Over easy – The whites will be cooked and the yolk will be warm and runny.
  6. Sunny-side-up egg – Crack an egg into a skillet and only cook one side.
  7. Poached egg – A cracked egg cooked in a pot of boiling water.
  8. Baked egg – Bake the egg mixture alone or add savory items like bacon, cheese, and fresh herbs.
  9. Frittata is similar to an omelet but the additional ingredients are mixed in with the eggs instead of just being folded into the middle. Once cooked, cut and serve several people.
  10. Quiche is a mixture of eggs, dairy, and other savory ingredients. It is baked in a shallow pie crust.
