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.

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.

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.

Peaches and Custard Egg Free Cake ‹ Lea Hogg’s Blog ‹ Reader — WordPress.com

I’m a rabid peach fan, so of course, this recipe jumped up at me.  The idea of baking without eggs is very new to me, but as the saying goes, “You never know, until you tried,” definitely fits well here.  Too bad peach season is over, however, if I do come across some stragglers, I will be sure to pick them up to try this. This looks yummy!  LP

Training Like A Beast

I recently came across this image and thought to myself, “How very true.”  Really, think about it, and maybe I am taking it deeper than the message needs to be taken, but…You see there is not a bigger critic of you, then yourself.

While others may look and pay you a sincere compliment, you may graciously accept it, however, you will always find something about yourself that needs repair.  Am I right?  Making this image (directly above) to be very, very, very true. That image you see in the image is your competitor and until that reflection shows you what you what you want to see then that race will continue indefinitely,

Which is why those of us who are hooked on fitness, and are leading a healthy lifestyle, choose to “Look like a beauty and train like a Beast.”  It is that standard in which we set for ourselves that keep us highly motivated as long as we continue to compete and challenge ourselves.

I hope your Wednesday goes well.  Lois “Depurplelady”
