Not only are eggs delicious, but they are also one of the most versatile foods in the world. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They can be scrambled, poached, baked, fried — you name it. They taste amazing in their simplest forms, but they can easily be transformed into complex, layered dishes. Personally, my favorite part about eggs is how quickly and easily they usually come together for a meal.

Instead of sticking with the basics, use these 70 egg recipes as inspiration for easy, satisfying meals. Remember! Eggs aren’t just a breakfast food; they’re good day and night.
