5 Delicious Meals to Make with Eggs


Well, it has happened: our hens are laying like crazy!  That means lots of eggy meals for the Groens!

If you haven’t had a farm-fresh egg from a happy semi-free-ranging chicken, you’re missing out. The yolks are creamier and the whites are fluffier than store-bought eggs.  Here’s an Internet round-up of some of my favorite recipes to make with eggs — and they’re not only for brunch!

Roasted Asparagus and Prosciutto

You simply can’t go wrong with Ina Garten’s recipes.  This one is so delicious and easy: fried eggs, asparagus, and prosciutto with a drizzle of Holandaise sauce.  Yes, please!  It makes a delicious light dinner.

Pepperoni Spinach Quiche

This quiche is amazing.  It’s flavorful and savory with a tiny hint of spice.  Plus, you don’t have to make a crust because it uses refrigerated crescent rolls.

Egg Salad on Pitas 

This is a pretty basic and traditional egg salad, but that allows you to put extra toppings like pickles, avocado, or cheese on your sandwich.  I specifically like this egg salad on a pita or on open-faced rye bread (not a big closed-face sandwich fan here!).

Breakfast Ham Cups

I have made this for breakfast/brunch several times and I never get to eat any of them!  Yep, they’re that yummy!  Plus, because they’re a little bite-sized morsel, they’re really popular with kids and made terrific finger food.  Need I say more?

Frittata – Leftover style

I hate leftovers… like really hate them.  But, I have found that I can stir almost any leftover veggies into eggs and make a delicious rustic frittata.  Here’s how:

Saute 2-2.5 cups of veggies lightly.  (Mushrooms, spinach, onion, broccoli and/or shredded brussel sprouts are particularly delicious.)  Meanwhile, beat together 6 eggs, 1/4 cup milk or cream and 1/4 cup cheese of choice.  Pour into well-greased pie plate or oven-safe skillet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

How do you like your eggs?  I’m always looking to expand the repertoire!
