A perfectly fried egg has the potential to be anything from a light snack to a full-on protein-packed meal. Whether you are using an egg to add a savory, gooey consistency to your lunch, whipping up a fortifying breakfast or throwing it over a Sunday night dinner, an undercooked egg will not disappoint. Here are seven foods in the awkward limbo between snack and meal that a fried egg can take to the next level.

1. Potatoes

Finish off hash browns or home fries with a fried egg for breakfast. Or take a baked potato, smear on some sour cream and enjoy fried-egg-topped comfort food perfection. Recipe here.
