Even home chefs should be able to cook a classic over-easy fried egg. When I first started trying to cook fried eggs, I had a habit of turning up the heat way too high. Medium heat helps you maintain a tasty, runny yolk. Where I used to fail, this recipe made me a success.

While this is such a simple and short recipe, it is one that is worth learning. When you can master the fried egg for breakfast, you can master the other egg recipes on this list. This dish is surprisingly not as easy as many people think!

You can also easily prep for this salad by hard-boiling your eggs ahead of time. I also recommend using fresh herbs when you can. This will ensure that the flavors stand out. By the way, this recipe also recommends homemade mayonnaise, which is so tasty and easy to make!

The more nutrients, the better. If you don’t like the jammy eggs in this recipe, you can substitute them for hard-boiled eggs. You can also fry eggs if you’d like. Use seasonal favorites that will ensure that you never get bored of this meal. Protein bowls are also the perfect way for you to load up on veggies in the middle of the day.

Huevos rancheros may often be associated with breakfast, but I like to eat them for lunch. They are so small and simple that I can throw together a bunch of tostadas in less than 10 minutes. Again, tostadas are super customizable. You can use a crunch corn tortilla and pile on all the fixings.

It’s got everything, from refried beans and runny eggs to avocados and tomatoes. You can make refried beans your own or you can buy canned beans. Either way, your tostada is going to be delicious. The eggs on top are so tasty, adding flavor and texture to a classic.

It’s so easy. You can also switch up the meat and cheese, perhaps using sausage instead of bacon. It’s a great lunch or brunch option you can make your own.

While you do not need eggs to make egg rolls, the traditional recipe called on eggs to be used in the dough. The wrappers contain eggs, so I’m totally going to count this one as a popular egg recipe! Also, it’s delicious and perfect to serve for dinner.

You can use a mushroom or mung bean filling to assemble these rolls, but my favorite part is the dipping sauce. I love how spicy it is without going over the top! You’ll never look at egg rolls the same way after you learn to successfully assemble them on your own.

17. This Japanese Chicken Bowl Uses Eggs Perfectly

You’ll need just a few minutes to cook the chicken, even if you use chicken thighs. Thin slices are the key here. Even if you have members in your family who do not enjoy traditional egg dishes, this one is quite different. These unique flavors truly come together perfectly.

18. Steak, Eggs & Salsa Verde? It Doesn’t Get Better Than This

There is so much to love about steak and eggs. When you add salsa verde? I can’t hold back. The use of skirt steak here is so good, giving you nice and thin pieces of meat that are seared to perfection. Skirt steak doesn’t require a thermometer or any special monitoring either.

You can easily cook this one by sight. The eggs are also ideal if you love crispy edges and silky yolks. True perfection! Thinly chopped capers are also the perfect addition to this meal, adding a dash more flavor. Coating your steak with oil before you cook is also a great way to make the seasoning stick.

19. Chicken & Egg Stir-Fry Is My Jam

In just a couple steps, you can put together perhaps the perfect stir fry. It starts with eggplants and chicken, but you’ll add some additional fresh ingredients. Red chillies, spring onions, and Thai basil are all staples of this recipe. Top your dish with fried eggs to serve.

This is a great way to incorporate more eggs into your diet without relegating them to breakfast. The eggplant adds a terrifix texture to the stir fry, and the eggs on top ensure that you have a little extra flavor. The healthy fats in this dish also make sure you are not missing out on any nutrients.

20. This Vegetarian Carbonara Uses Eggs Perfectly

Egg yolk makes up the sauce of a carbonara dish. If you are looking for a quick and easy pasta dish that uses eggs effectively, this is it. Mozzarella makes this dish vegetarian, but you can always add bacon instead. Eggs are used masterfully by adding a creamy texture.

This makes the pasta light and easy to eat. Peas and spinach are easy to pair with eggs for flavor. They are also a great way to incorporate more nutrients into a traditional pasta dish. Before making this, I never would have thought that eggs and pasta were a great combo.

Tips for Cooking Eggs

Eggs cook best slowly. You can add a lot to the texture and flavor of a dish by keeping the heat on low. This applies to scrambling eggs as well. Do not end up with rubbery eggs because you cooked them too quickly.

When it comes to making poached eggs, add vinegar to the water. This helps your eggs maintain cohesion when they cook in the water.

Finally, consider cooking your eggs in the microwave. The process can be a little tricky, especially because you need to pay attention to when to pull the eggs out of the microwave. Still, they are super tasty!
