The 14 Most Essential Ways to Cook an Egg

Eggs sure have a lot going for them — you can buy them anywhere, they last for a few weeks in the fridge, they're inexpensive, and they do magical things to baked goods and mayonnaise.

Do you know all the delicious ways you can cook an egg? Even if fried eggs are your favorite, try some of these other methods and you might be surprised to find yourself craving some buttery toast fingers dipped into the runny yolk of a soft-boiled egg instead!
