Your go-to egg recipes


I don't cook daily, but I cook more than a lot of people I know. One of my go-to items is egg. When I'm in a hurry and hungry, there's nothing better. These are my routine egg recipes:

— Soft-boiled eggs with toast — put eggs in pot, cover with water, turn on heat. When it reaches boiling, cover the pot, and turn off the heat. Let it sit for 8 minutes. Perfect. Crack eggs into a bowl — I don't do the egg cup thing except in restaurants

— Deviled eggs — boil eggs until hard (I use one of those timers you drop into the pot that changes color to tell you when it's done), slice in half, extract yolks and mix them with mayonnaise, Colman's mustard powder, salt, and a little apple cider vinegar. Spoon the yolk mixture back into the half whites. Or just mix the whites in and make it an egg salad. Or just eat it all out of the bowl.

— Soft scrambled eggs — beat eggs with salt and perhaps a few drops of hot sauce, melt a good amount of butter in the pan and turn the heat to low, pour in eggs and cook slowly, so they achieve the texture of porridge and can be spooned rather than cut. Finish with some more butter or a little raw egg. Sometimes add smoked oysters

— Over-easy fried —in olive oil

— Indian-style French toast —fry diced onions and a bit of diced green chilis with cilantro leaves in mustard seed oil, add to beaten eggs. Soak pieces of any kind of bread in the egg mixture and then fry in mustard seed oil. Serve with Maggi Hot & Sweet tomato sauce (ketchup)

— French omelettes —Very much like my scrambled egg recipe. Sometimes add some cheese, particularly Amul-brand processed cheese from India, but occasionally a bit of nice English farmhouse cheddar

— Poached eggs — just drop an egg into a pot of boiling water (no special equipment needed) and cook for exactly 4 minutes, extract egg with slotted spoon and dunk in cold water to stop any further cooking. When time to serve, extract from cold water bath and dab off excess water with clean paper towel. Serve with salt and pepper and toast or bread. (I've found I don't really need the hollandaise sauce, the egg is pretty tasty on its own).

What are your go-to egg recipes?

Egg and banana pancakes -- 2 eggs, 1 mashed banana (the browner the better), all mixed together. No flour, just the eggs and banana -- make very small pancakes since they don't hold as well together as regular pancakes. Very tasty and healthy.

Egg salad sandwiches. Hard boiled eggs, mayo, pickle relish, paprika. You can alot of extras, but I like it simple on white bread.
Dude, OP, you're all about some food tonight.
Don't go grocery shopping right now. With all your ideas you'd overspend.

Scrambled-egg sandwich: 2, maybe 3, eggs in a bowl, add some milk, whip it, then into the microwave. 15 second bouts of MWs until cooked through. While still hot, sprinkle shredded cheese on top (Colby/Jack), allow melting; if no shredded cheese, slice of cheddar works just fine. Mayo on 2 slices of potato bread, slap on egg and cheese. A sprinkle of sea salt (optional). A slice of ham won't hurt none, but not crucial. Dun.

Eggs en cocotte.

The variations on this are endless. I like to put a slice of prosciutto or smoked salmon in the bottom, drop in two eggs (duck eggs are terrific in this too), and then top with a shake of pepper and a little bit of shredded Gruyere. Serve with toast and fresh fruit.

Shakshuka has in the last five years or so become my go-to easy, hearty, and healthy egg dish.

If I wasn't so lazy I'd make this more often, too. I find I need to watch the eggs like a hawk so they don't overcook.

Poached eggs on English muffin: toast the muffin and bring the water to a simmer. Break the eggs into a strainer to prevent spreading (note: other options include adding vinegar to the water and putting the unbroken egg into the water for about 15 seconds. To be honest, these are the ones I generally use, but the strainer does do the best job). Break the eggs into the simmering water and let cook until a white film appears over the yolk. Butter the English muffins. Take the egg out of the simmering water and into some cold water (especially if you used vinegar) and slide it onto the muffin.

Omelette. Break the eggs into a bowl. Season to taste (I like Penzy's Mural of Flavor, Berbare pepper, and maybe a little Siracha) and scramble. Heat the pan on medium heat. When it's hot, add butter (it should sizzle gently). Pour in the eggs. Shake the pan back and forth while stirring for about ten seconds. Then step away. Get your filling: I prefer cheese, usually Swiss. Loosen the egg in the pan. When the egg is set and nearly done on the top, add the cheese. Once heated, fold 1/3 of the egg over, then put it on the plate, flipping the 1/3rd over the other 2/3rds.

Fried Eggs. Heat the pan at low heat with a touch of olive oil. After a couple of minutes increase the heat. Break the eggs into a bowl. Add butter. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Take off the heat and cook for another minute.

I like to make a batch of 6 individual crustless cottage cheese and egg "quiches," baked in greased muffin tins. They're a quick breakfast for busy times. Fill with chopped ham, mushrooms, peppers, green onion, shredded cheddar and Parmesan. Reheat briefly in the microwave and enjoy with your favorite fruit and/or toast.

Kind of reminds me of the most memorable scene in "Carol" in which Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara go to a fancy Manhattan establishment for lunch and order creamed spinach over poached eggs, which the Independent Spirit Awards dubbed the "Eleanor Roosevelt combo" — https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_QljnNIBtaI

(Hilarious parody clip with Kumail Nanjiani and Kate McKinnon)

I've had an Indian version of this — eggs cooked over onions fried in spices.

I proposed to my wife that I prepare shakshuja for a holiday weekend brunch and she nixed it. Oh well.

Speaking of Indian egg preps, I was all about egg bhurji for awhile, too. I’ll still make it, but I usually end up making shakshuka because it’s nice and saucy, and I generally prefer an intact egg to scrambled. But spice profiles are actually similar the way I make both. Also, for variants of shakshuka, I might throw in beans and give it a more Tex-Mex spicing to make some kind of huevos rancheros hybrid.

Egg-in-a-basket.

Cut the middle out of a slice of white bread and cut the middle into small strips. Melt some butter in a skillet and put the hollowed-out slice and the strips in. Crack the egg into the hole in the bread and season lightly with salt and pepper. Let the edges of the white solidify, add more butter to the skillet, then flip, season the other side, and cook overeasy. Plate and eat with knife and fork, using the fried strips from the middle of the bread for dipping in the runny yolk.

During summer I keep 63° sous vide eggs in the fridge. They are great to add to a noodle dish or a salad.

When the weather is cold it is fried, scrambled or omelets in equal numbers according to need.

Actually, now that I think about it, last winter was lots of fried eggs for bacon and egg McMuffins - one of those things that you can make at home way better than the one you buy in the store. Better cheese, better bacon, and Sriracha.

Frittata when we have guests. I make mine with fried potatoes and sausage, top with grated cheese and popped under the broiler until the cheese melts and begins to brown.

Over easy on hash browns or home fried spuds.

Over easy egg and bacon sandwich.

Simple cheese omelet.

Breakfast burrito: eggs scrambled with cream cheese, some bacon. Toast a flour tortilla, schmear with spicy guac, add the eggs & bacon, top with a bit of pico, roll up.

Goose eggs. Goose eggs are everything you wish eggs could be, only better. I came across two for sale at the farmers market, in strawberry cartons, omg they were wonderful.

I toast and butter an english muffin. In a little no stick pan I gently fry an egg after breaking the yolk and cook both sides, but not to hard-boiled, just so it doesn't drip all over. A slice of cheddar on the english muffin, some hot sauce or salsa, and I am a happy camper. There's a diner out in the country called The Busted Yolk, if I worked there this would be my signature dish, lol.

Just had this one this morning, one of my all time favorites. It's your basic fried eggs/bagel/corned beef hash but has to be prepared this way for the magic to happen.

Half a can of Mary Kitchen corned beef hash (no substitutes accepted in this case, again, for the magic to happen)
One bagel
Three eggs

1. Get the hash frying in an open skillet. The skillet needs to be large enough that the hash takes up no more than half of your cooking area (more on this requirement in step 2). Cook over high heat and do not disturb until you have a nice crispy layer. Once you get that crispy layer you flip the hash and proceed to the bagel stage.
2. While the hash is 'crisping', toast one bagel dark. When the bagel is toasted and the hash has crisped, apply a liberal amount of butter to each half and place them face down in the open portion of your skillet. I call this the pan fried bagel and while I'm sure others have done it before I came up with it on my own so I'm taking credit for inventing this culinary delight. After about 30 seconds (or when the bagel has fried to taste), place both halves face up on a plate. Place the hash on top of the bagel halves. Proceed to egg stage.
3. Fry three eggs to over easy in the same pan. Do not clean or wipe the pan in any way, you want the hash remnants and grease for the eggs (again folks, the magic). Place the three eggs on top of the hash and serve. Proceed to consumption stage.

Proper consumption technique must begin with breaking the egg yolks and letting everything underneath soak up the goodness. After that, individual bites must be planned so as to maximize the mix of all ingredients in each bite.

OPTIONAL: Top the whole wonderful mess with hot sauce if feeling particularly spicy.

ALSO OPTIONAL: Angioplasty

The easiest one ever: Crack an egg into a baggie, add whatever. Goosh it up. Lay it in the microwave in such a way that it doesn't run out. Zap it 'til it puffs up. Flip over and repeat. Break open onto bread. Eat.

I'd be a little nervous about using a plastic baggie: there are real health risks associated with microwaving non-microwave-safe plastics. However, "micro-eggs" were the first recipe my kid learned to make, and they're real similar:

1) Spray a glass measuring cup with non-stick spray.
2) Crack an egg into the cup.
3) Scramble it with a fork.
4) Add salt and cheese.
5) Microwave for one minute.

That meal got her through a lot of picky-meal nights.

If you have a high power microwave, you'll probably want to reduce the power. Even scrambled eggs have exploded in my microwave.

I hardly even think of egg dishes as having "recipes", since they're so flexible. Basically, put eggs and whatever other stuff you want in a pan, cook it all until it's whatever consistency you like, and then eat.

A few days ago, it was eggs, pickled peppers, cheese, cumin, and oregano.

Agreed. I so regularly make eggs scrambled, omeleted, fried, frittataed, burritoed, poached, shirred, soft boiled and hard boiled, I hardly think about it. Eggs are an every day part of my life.

Not a fan of shakshuka for breakfast. Just a bit much as the first meal of the day, although I love the classic flavors as the day wears on.

I like the "Just Crack an Egg" sets from Ore-Ida. They're not available at the nearest Wal-Mart, but the next-nearest one, in the larger town, has them.

We also make hard-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, quite regularly.

Garlic taters and eggs:
Nuke a potato in the microwave until it's just cooked, as if you were making potato salad. Don't bother peeling it. Waxy potatoes like Yukon Golds work best for this.
Dice the potato in bite sized pieces and toss into your skillet with butter, salt and pepper. Set heat to medium and stir it about for a couple minutes.
Add minced garlic and stir about until you can smell the garlic, about 1 minute.
Stir up a couple of eggs with salt and pepper and pour over potatoes.
Let it set up a bit and them scramble to your taste.

Had some for brek this morning.

We also keep a bag of sausage patties the right size for an English muffin in the freezer.
Put one in a small skillet to warm up or cook, depending on if it's pre-cooked or not.
Scramble an egg in a buttered ramekin with some salt and pepper. Nuke the egg in the microwave in ~11 sec. increments until done. (If you don't do it in increments, it'll explode.)
Meanwhile, toast your muffin.
Butter the muffin and assemble same with egg, sausage, and a slice of cheese if desired.
Eat.

Most Saturday mornings:

Two eggs, over-medium, with some sort of meat, half an avocado (smashed with green salsa), and a few warm corn tortillas.

Oh, and I forgot my two favorite Mexican-style preparations: chorizo and eggs. That always hits the spot. Or juevos divorciados, two fried eggs, one with a red salsa, another with a green salsa, served with refried beans and tortillas.

It takes two skillets but my go to egg breakfast is an egg & cheese quesadilla. One pan, medium heat with a little oil, tortilla & shredded cheese. Cover to melt cheese while cooking an egg in the second pan with a little butter. When the egg is cooked enough to hold together, slide it onto the tortilla. Looks like this.

Fold & cover - flip when tortilla is brown and crispy on bottom & brown the other side. I use flour tortillas or 'golden' corn & flour tortillas.

That's the base, add bacon, chorizo, jalapeño etc to suit your tastes.

Fried eggs with broken yolks (but not fried hard) on toast with extra sharp white cheddar and cracked black pepper.

Omelettes, usually with mushrooms and gruyere

Garbage eggs - Fry up with leftover veggies, hashbrowns, and Tabasco. Cook everything else first and add the eggs last. If I plan well, I poach the eggs and serve on top of the hash. If you don't like tabasco, try using balsalmic vinegar.

Fried rice.

I add unbeaten eggs to miso soup. After a minute or so, I break the yolk. That makes it so there are chunks of egg white, but the yolk makes the soup positively silky.

Quiche - every spring when the asparagus is ready to harvest.

hopple popple - there are lots of recipes out there for this and they very greatly. I only discovered them after making the dish from the description of a friend. It's similar to my garbage eggs or a quiche

Two other things to try are migas, which is toasted corn torts with scrambled eggs and salsa, huevos rancheros, and eggs diavolo (eggs in purgatory), which are eggs poached in marinara sauce.

Oh, I used to make a great version of huevos rancheros. I haven't done that in a long time.

I'd get some fresh roma tomatoes and purée them with garlic, onions, and salt (and maybe some chili), for the sauce.

I'd crisp-fry a couple of corn tortillas, and make a "sandwich" with the tomato purée and refried beans.

Then I'd top the tortillas with beans, scrambled or fried eggs, more tomato purée, sour cream, guacamole, cheese and hot sauce.

Last summer, Dunkin Donuts sold these, two for $2. Can't beat that, though some salsa and a side of sausage links would have improved it. Doesn't McDonalds sell Egg McMuffins all day . Or breakfast burritos? . my favorite fast food there.

I guess I am making fast food then - but no Dunkin's stores around these parts.

NYC Breakfast Sandwich.

Slow cook 2-3 rashers of bacon while you heat the oven up to 325. Put cheese of choice onto one of two slices of bread, then pop them in the oven (I’ve been using white American cheddar in a frenzy of nostalgia for my New Haven college years).

When the bacon is crisp, remove it and scramble a seasoned beaten egg in the bacon grease. When JUST done, slip it onto the toast with the melted cheese. Top with the bacon and cover with the other piece of toast (which can be spread with soft butter or a little mayo, to taste).

Let it cool for a moment before slicing, and serve with ice cold Clamato or V8 juice.

Not usually for breakfast because of prep time:
classic egg, sausage, cheese, and tater tot casserole, only in the interest of cutting carbs we substitute green giant veggie tots (broccoli and cheddar). Even veggie-averse Mr CK likes it.

Cholesterol bomb: fried egg, hard with yolk broken, slice of ham (fried in same pan), cheese, and buttered toast sandwich.

Huevo frito con puntilla, of course.

Andrés folds it up, which I don't, but hey, that's why he's got fancy stars and I just have my trusty Holy Fried Eggs Pan.




If you combine it with white rice, plain tomato sauce and sausages, you get the dish that's called arroz a la cubana in Spain (cuban-style rice). It appears to be based on actual Cuban dish rice with fried plantain, but the only common ingredient is the rice.

But mine is better.

Too late to edit: Something like this.

Although now I see the version that uses ham as the basket, and I've got to try that.

My favorite fast food, period.

I often have to grab a quick lunch (or second breakfast;-) while I'm running errands on my bike. Those cheapass egg burritos have kept me from buying McWhoppers and getting fat.

Hunter's Breakfast - Cut two med sized red skinned potatoes into inch cubes and partially fry in skillet with salt, pepper, and a bit of oil. When spuds are about half cooked, add one onion (frenched) and a could of stemmed and halved jalapeno. Continue frying until done to your liking. Add two-three beaten eggs and scramble them with the veggies, add too much hot sauce and top with shredded cheese. Shut off the heat and cover the skillet with a lid for five minutes. Serve with rye toast or use a flour tortilla to make a breakfast burrito.
