I suspect many of you will have leftover eggs this weekend - ones that escaped the egg hunt and the color bath. I thought I'd post a quick list of favorite egg recipes from the past few years to serve as inspiration. I'm also curious about your all-time favorite ways to prepare eggs, feel free to share in the comments. If you have a blog where you've done a write-up about your favorite egg recipe, link to it in the comments. I'll add the five or ten that look and sound most appetizing to this post (later in the week). I suspect I'll have to shut down the comments at some point, but I'd love to hear about the egg recipes you are passionate about. Not the ones you just sort-of like, or the ones that sounds good on paper. I'm curious about the ones you really love, the ones you rate a ten, the ones you turn to regularly, or the ones with a particularly unique point of view. Please don't paste entire recipes into the comments. If you are referencing a recipe from a book simply share the name of the book, author, and what page the recipe is on. Feel free to give a quick synopsis of the technique or paraphrase the overall gist of the recipe, but please don't paste it verbatim.
- A Tasty Frittata Recipe
The prettiest, tastiest, frittata recipe. Made with potatoes, onions, and eggs drizzled with a cilantro chile sauce.
- Skinny Omelettes
Eggs cooked crepe thin and stuffed. A delicious and lighter alternative to heavy, cheese-stuffed omelette recipes - great for lunch and brunch.
- Egg Salad Sandwich (the only one I'll eat)
The egg salad sandwich recipe I turn to multiple times a week. Light on the mayo, with good quality eggs, chopped celery, and a sprinkling of chives on thinly sliced whole grain bread.
- Curried Egg Salad
A variation on my favorite egg salad recipe (above), this version uses plain yogurt in place of mayo and incorporates curry powder, chopped apples, toasted pecans, and minced chives.
- Baked Eggs
Baked eggs in edible cups with cherry tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and lots of vibrant spices.
- Poached Eggs Over Rice
An unassuming yet satisfying little rice bowl recipe - simply a reasonable serving of chard-flecked whole grain rice topped with a poached egg.
- Sweet Crepes
The perfect standard crepe recipe from Larousse Gastronomique, I've included many variations and topping suggestions here as well.
- Sun-dried Tomato Cottage Cheese Muffins
Golden, puffy, sun-dried tomato, and cottage cheese muffins. High in protein, low in carbs, they are a great, satisfying way to start the day.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I'll have a new recipe for you on Monday.
