22 Egg Recipes (Gotta love eggs)! Part I

If you love eggs like I do, then you too believe that eggs are not just for breakfast. In fact, there are so many ways in which to prepare eggs that you can eat them any time of the day. Not only are eggs filled with protein, they are especially easy to prepare.

And if that is not exciting enough for you then, then you are going to jump for joy with what I came across on BuzzFeed, 22 Brillant Ways to Eat Eggs For Dinner, provided by Marie Telling. I will be breaking this into two posts.  However, by clicking on the above URL you’ll find all twenty-two recipes.

Unfortunately, for me, my wife is not an egg lover, which means I don’t have a guinea pig to try them out on. I guess I will just have to host a Dinner Egg Party! Enjoy the recipes :). Lois

1. Spaghetti Marinara With Poached Eggs

I gotta tell ya, I’ve never thought of adding a poached egg to my pasta, but in thinking about the different textures I can easily see how this might be yummy. I mean wow, just the way it looks, makes me want to give it a try. Go here for the full recipe.

2. Fried Rice

If you grew up in New York, most of the Chinese Restaurants prepare their fried rice with eggs already. However, did you know that the best way to reheat your fried rice is in a frying pan with a little oil and a couple of eggs and cheese? Give this recipe a try and add a slice of cheese on top, mmm. Go here for this recipe.

Fast, easy, and always satisfying. Get the recipe here.

3. Turmeric Sweet Potatoes, Poached Eggs, and Lemon Dressing

I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I have to admit that the lemon dressing seems to be a little out there, however, a little lemon flavor does go very well with sweet potatoes and yams. Go here for this recipe.

 

4. Sesame Roasted Asparagus, Egg, and Bacon Salad

Anything that has bacon and eggs in its ingredients, have to be good right? Yum! I love my asparagus seasoned and crunchy, how do you like yours? This recipe is definitely a keeper for me. Go here for the recipe.

 

5. Baked Eggs With Spinach and Mushrooms

This is a recipe that I would definitely have to add some additional flavor too. While I love spinach, it does not have a desirable taste. I usually add crush red pepper and a little bacon grease to my spinach to give it a different taste. In looking at this particular recipe, I also see myself adding White American Slices as well. Go here for the recipe.

6. Zucchini Crust Pizza

Anyone for pizza? Looking at this picture, you have to admit that this looks yummy! This is the type of recipe one tries out on the weekend with a bunch of friends over, laughing and throwing back a couple of beers or wine coolers. Go here for the recipe.

Low-carb and delicious. Get the recipe here.

7. Mushroom, Leek, and Fontina Frittata

Are you into quiche,?  That’s what came to mind when l first saw this recipe.  There are a couple of things that I will swap out and use substitutes instead to make me it more appealing to my palate.  I suggest you do the same if some of the ingredients are not to your liking.  All in all, I think this is a winner.  

Get the recipe here.

A hearty and comforting recipe. You can easily turn into a full meal by serving it with some salad.Get the recipe here.

 

8. Eggs in Squash Rings

Mmm, eggs and squash, yum, yum, yum! Delicious and easy to make. 

9. Goat Cheese Scrambled Eggs With Pesto Veggies

I’ve never tried goat cheese so this recipe will be a surprise to my palate.  I have, however, tried eggs with vegetables, so I am looking forward to trying this recipe as it stands. 

Get the recipe here.

Breakfast for dinner for grown-ups. Get the recipe here.

 

10. Ham, Eggs, and Cheese Grilled Cheese

Ok, this recipe is quite simple and in my opinion one that we’ve all tried, the only difference being the use of a waffle maker.  I have done this on George Forman grill so any portable grill will work fine with this recipe.

Get the recipe here.

 

 

11. Spring Vegetable Egg Casserole

When I hear the casserole, the first thing that comes to mind is entertaining.  This is a quick easy recipe that can be accompanied by a nice healthy salad.

This yummy recipe was found on Tasty/BuzzFeed, courtesy of Alix Traeger. Do enjoy, Lois.

Protein-Packed Breakfast Burritos Ingredients

Sweet Potato Hash w/Egg

sweet-potato-hash-w-egg

When it comes to eating breakfast, I am the worst person to talk to.  I find that I am never hungry for breakfast during the normal breakfast hours.  I get up in the morning, let my furbabies out, fix their breakfast (during normal breakfast hours), feed them and disappear downstairs where I put in one hour working out.  After my workout, I enjoy a leisure cup of Whey and I’m off to shower and getting dress.

Usually, after I get dressed I am ready for a nice cup of coffee and a cigarette.  I know, smoking defeats the purpose of exercising, but it’s a habit just have not gotten around to giving up.

In any case, I received an email from My Fitness Pal, sharing this delicious looking recipe for Sweet Potato Hash w/Egg and I thought to myself, “Hmmm, this would make a great weekend brunch!”  Doesn’t it look just yummy?  For your convenience, I am including the recipe here and the URL so you can check out other recipes that may interest you. Enjoy! LP

Italian Eggs

20151217_181118.jpgThis evening for dinner I wanted something different from salad and as promised, I took pics and tonight I will give you instructions on how to prepare Italian Eggs.  While I am not a chef, I do know my way around the kitchen.  Often my guests have complimented my cooking and this comes out  after their disbelief that I can even cook.  Even my mom, who is a southern belle from Lake City, SC, was surprised at my knowledge for cooking (she was however, happy to know that I often watched her  while she cooked n the  kitchen).

In any case, the recipe I am sharing with you tonight, I actually got from the cooking channel, from Italian chef Lidia Bastianich.  She is by far my favorite, now I can’t promise you I followed her recipe to the letter but the way I prepare the meal its quick, easy and delicious.

 

20151217_174240.jpgIngredients

1 potato, 2 eggs, Milk, Onion, Goya Adobo, Black Pepper, Paprika, Olive oil, Cheese (your favorite), Frying pan

 

 

20151217_174303.jpgPour just enough olive oil in the pan to coat the bottom, you don’t want to drown your fries.

 

 

 

 

20151217_174348.jpg 20151217_174434.jpg

 

 

 

 

20151217_174456.jpgCut potato in half and keeping cutting off the halves (like spears see Pic) then vertically into fries.

 

 

 

20151217_174541.jpg 20151217_174706.jpg 20151217_174735.jpg 20151217_174846.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next you will put the cut potatoes into a bowl.  Add Adobo, Black Pepper and Paparika and Mix, making sure to coat potatoes  on all sides. Then place into your now heated pan of Olive oil. Cooked unto brown. Because of the seasoning, it may be hard to tell if they are brown, stick a fork into the fries and if it goes in easily they are cooked.  You will have to turn them over at least once.

20151217_175201.jpg 20151217_175432.jpg 20151217_175527.jpg

 

 

 

 

Next step is to break the eggs into the bowl add a little milk, add Adobo, and Black Pepper.  Then cut up 1/4 of your onion, chopping them fine, cut your cheese (if you are using block cheese)  Add ingredients to your eggs and beat.  By this time your fries should be done.

 

 

20151217_180508.jpg 20151217_180551.jpg 20151217_180621.jpg 20151217_180806.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drain the remaining oil off the fries, leave in the pan.  Add your beat eggs on top of the cooked fries add cheese and let cook for about two minutes.  Use a spatula for easy mixing. The eggs and cheese will stick together.

 

20151217_180857.jpg 20151217_181118.jpg

 

 

 

 

Once completely cooked remove the pan add to the plate.  Add some lettuce and any other stuff might like (shredded carrots, parsley, radishes, etc). And there you have it, a modified version of Lidia’s Italian eggs.  (BTW-I’ve included her URL to take directly to her page.  Great recipes, many with meat and all dishes made by Lidia are washed down with wine 🙂

Bon Appetite!  LP
