Eggs, eggs, glorious eggs! They are the heros of our quick weeknight meals and simple lunches, but they really shine at breakfast and brunch. Recipes with eggs come together quickly and always taste delicious – what else could you want when you're still a little groggy in the morning?
From breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, to a roasted radish omelet, to a make-ahead egg casserole with sausage and chilies, eggs will always be there for you. All you need to do is roll out of bed and decide on a recipe to make first.
Whether you're eating by yourself in the morning, or having a whole bunch of people over for brunch, eggs are the easy solution. You don't have to stick with the standard eggs Benedict or quiche – branch out and try our recipe for Indian scrambled eggs or a spring-y recipe of asparagus and poached egg. And some of the recipes listed below also make great make-ahead options if you're just not a morning person (raises hand).
