15 Egg-cellent Recipes

15 Egg-Cellent Recipes -- a delicious collection of egg recipes from food bloggers | gimmesomeoven.com

When I was little, the only kind of eggs I ate were scrambled. With ketchup.  But as I grew, so did my palate, and I discovered the joy of pricking a delicate poached egg with the tines of a fork, giving way to a pool of creamy yellow goodness, idyllic for sopping with toast. I played around with different cooking methods for eggs, and discovered that I really loathe overdone omelets encrusted with a mysterious skin, and that it’s really hard to find an omelet that is cooked to perfection. Although now I take my scrambled eggs alongside avocado toast, with some Texas Pete or Tapatio, scrambled eggs with ketchup will always have a special little part of my heart. I may have even made some last week!

The rest of the world seems to have caught egg-fever as well. Every restaurant seems to have a burger or a pizza with an egg on it, and fried eggs are more like garnishes on meals. And at home, they’re the perfect go-to for throwing together a random clean-out-the-fridge meal. Add a fried egg to your rice and roasted veggies? Instantly better. Fry an egg on your pizza? Yes, please.  And don’t even get me started on the merits of a big bowl of ramen with a 62-degree egg nestled on top!

No matter how you like your eggs, there are a million ways to enjoy them, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorite recipes from food bloggers to share with you today. From a Tex-Mex eggs benedict with avocado lime hollandaise (!), to a classic egg salad, there’s something here for everyone.  So check out these egg-cellent ideas, and fry, scramble, poach or bake one this week!

    I have been trying to plan more meals with eggs as the only protein. They are delicious and more affordable than other farm fresh choices.

    Thanks for compiling – I look forward to trying a few of these recipes! :)

    I love eggs.  Seriously.  A poached egg on a toasted and buttered piece of bread with a side of garlicky greens or zucchini …. heaven.

    Thanks for the  great egg ideas.  Just wondering if you ever make chilaquiles?  I’d love to have a good recipe for that! ……… Nancy
