101 Ways to Cook an Egg

The possibilities are endless
Photo courtesy of The Incredible Egg

Eggs are easily one of the most versatile ingredients, yet we more often than not whip up the same scrambled eggs or make the same omelet. If you’re tired of the same ol’ egg dishes, we’ve put together 101 recipes that aren't just breakfast. We’ve covered basics like egg salad and devilled eggs, more daunting things like quiche and shakshuka, and there's even a meringue or two worth trying. Just as a perfect hard-boiled egg always hits the spot, these recipes will do the same.

Pesto Asparagus Egg Skillet

Asparagus may not be the first vegetable you reach for when cooking with eggs, but this skillet could change that. When you shave asparagus, it becomes tender and even easier to cook, and the strips of green make a scrumptious nest for eggs — cooked however you like.

Churro French Toast

This is right up there with the best brunch recipes of all time.

This dish is similar to shakshuka, but instead of Middle Eastern or African flavors, it’s a mix of  both Mexican and Italian ingredients with basil and chorizo. The combination of parmesan cheese and pepper jack also offers an interesting fusion to the base of marinara sauce.

This strata is like a frittata and bread pudding in one. You whisk the eggs and milk with the cubed bacon, chives and cheese and then pour the whole thing over the cubed bread in the baking dish.

These dessert bars taste like summer and sunshine. The Greek yogurt in combination with softened cream cheese gives them a silky consistency, which is fantastic with the snappy lemon shortbread crust and sweet strawberry preserve filling.

Croque Madame is essentially a French ham sandwich that’s drizzled with a bechamel sauce and topped with fried eggs. The egg on top makes it look like a lady’s top hat, hence “madame.”

Instead of rolling a breakfast wrap in a tortilla, try this version using pancakes. Pancakes are thin and fluffy and much more delicate, which allows the chicken, chorizo and eggs to be the star of the show.
