60 Easy Egg Recipes for Your Best Brunch Ever
Get your protein fix without breaking a culinary sweat.
Eggs are the official star VIP at our breakfast table — there are so many reasons why we love them. They’re cheap, always versatile, and most of all, they’re chock full of good-for-you protein, making them a fantastic choice to supercharge your morning. But while home cooks factor eggs into their shopping budget and nearly always enjoy their protein boost, some may be still searching for inspiration on new ways to regularly enjoy them. If you’re looking to break out of your scrambled-eggs-and-bacon shell, you’ll want to try one of these equally delicious and easy egg dishes.
Most people don’t realize there are eight different ways to cook eggs, all with varying difficulty for first timers. Scrambling and hard frying are two easy ways to quickly get breakfast on the table during a hectic work week; but mastering the art of over-easy eggs isn’t far off. For make-ahead fans and those who meal prep in advance, hard-boiled eggs are a must; and after a while, you’ll even master a fluffy, airy omelet that you can make on weekdays, too. With each method of cooking a fresh egg, there’s a whole set of opportunities for even fresher sides and delicious, savory fold-ins. And most home cooks forget that eggs can enhance other unique breakfasts, too — breakfast casserole, anyone?
We’ve rounded up all sorts of creative ways to cook up eggs without breaking a sweat. Think: Loaded egg bakes, 10+ breakfast sandwiches, and make-ahead quiches (some crustless!). No matter which breakfast you choose to make, your brunch crowd will leave feeling happy and full until lunch rolls around. Get crackin’ on these eggscellent ideas!
