Once a breakfast-only tradition, eggs have made their way into every meal of the day and we couldn’t be more egg-cited. Wake up to lots of egg styles — like scrambled, fried or sunny side — take a mid-day break for deviled eggs, try a refreshing tuna tartare with an egg plopped on top, stir one into a hearty bowl of pasta or whip them into a delicious sauce to pour all over the perfect entree.
