E Is for Eggs

Is there a more versatile food than the egg? You can use it to prepare any meal of the day, and it can be fancy or plain. Anything from a quick dinner of scrambled eggs to a fancy brunch with quiche to a quick and dirty fried egg (particularly yummy if you calorie-plurge and fry it in bacon fat after cooking a couple slices of bacon).

Eggs are definitely a staple food around here, and we usually eat omelets for dinner once a week or so. Recently, thanks to Everyday Food, I discovered a new favorite way to serve eggs for dinner: Baked Eggs in Tomato-Parmesan Sauce. We tried this for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it will definitely be staying in my repertoire.

  1. Nice picture. When we lived in the country we had 6 chickens and they laid beautiful eggs like those. I miss them, the chickens and the eggs.

  2. Yum. I love baked eggs. I have one recipe where you stick slices of ham in muffin cups, throw in some herbs, break the eggs in, and then top with cheese. It’s really amazingly good. It makes a deceptively striking presentation – have served it at brunch for company several times, nad they always think I slaved over it … not. Easiest thing in the world.
