Eggs are such a fun, versatile food. You can make everything from delicious sweet baked goods to savory recipes. They’re used in many different cultures and countries, so egg recipes encompass nearly every type of food.
No matter the occasion, you can find egg dishes that coincide with the theme. Plus, if you don’t like the taste of eggs, there are quite a few dishes where you can’t tell eggs are included. In contrast, other dishes allow eggs to be at the forefront in terms of taste.
We can’t get over how much you can do with eggs!
Of course, they’re also budget-friendly and found at every grocery store and market.
Perhaps you have purchased too many eggs, or you love this food item and want to create every available recipe that contains eggs. Whatever the case, we have collected 35 of the yummiest recipes to make. Read on for these yummy dishes.
When someone thinks about things to make with eggs, an egg skillet is typically at the top of the list.
This egg skillet has a little bit of everything; cheese, ham, and veggies. It’s a great breakfast dish that will satisfy you in the morning. One of the veggies included is a red bell pepper. Of course, bell pepper is not for everyone.
You can swap this ingredient out with your favorite veggie – like chopped broccoli bits.
Tip: Heat some tortillas with this dish to create breakfast tacos.
Are you a deviled egg fiend like we are? Anytime we make deviled eggs, we know they won’t last long! These deviled eggs are easy to make yet so tasty.
Once the deviled eggs are made and assembled, you’ll be using smoked paprika as a garnish.
You can mix it up by using sweet or hot paprika. If you want something more out of the box, try a different spice mix like cajun for a pop of flavor. This recipe is an excellent base for deviled eggs.
You can be as creative as you want with toppings.
This egg casserole is similar to a quiche without a crust. It’s one of the simplest egg ideas that everyone in the family will love. Even if you make this egg bake weekly, you’ll still have family members lining up for a slice.
Bacon makes everything better, doesn’t it?
Adding bacon to this dish gives it an extra pop of flavor.
If you want a healthier dish, you can use turkey bacon as a replacement for an equally delicious taste. Once cooked, you can freeze this dish for yummy future breakfasts.
Tell us a better combination than a delicious baguette with a quiche filling! We couldn’t think of one either. These baked egg boats have a decadent quiche center that is mouthwatering and delicious.
Green onions are baked into the quiche filling for a pop of green and a fresh flavor. You can use chives instead if you have them more readily available.

Tip: You can keep the seasoning simple and still get a flavorful dish since you’re using high-quality ingredients.
You can’t get simpler than this recipe! Though, that doesn’t mean it’s not flavorful! Over easy eggs are served over a crunchy, melted parmesan cheese that’s perfect for use in breakfast tacos.
Parmesan does have a more pungent taste than other cheeses. If you prefer something with a more subtle flavor like mozzarella, you can use that instead. Other cheese may not produce a nice, crispy crust like parmesan.
Grab your favorite tortilla chips, and use them as a dipping mechanism instead!
This delightful dish is comforting and has all your favorite breakfast foods in one. Crispy hashbrowns, cheesy eggs, sausage, what more could you want from a dish?
It’s one of those easy egg recipes that seem so complicated because of how flavorful it is.
This recipe uses thawed hashbrown potatoes as a mix-in for quicker prep time. You’re more than welcome to cube potatoes instead of using a frozen variety if you have extra time.
For a slightly sweeter flavor, try using cubed sweet potatoes instead.
Avocado toast is a trend that won’t be going anywhere soon! This recipe keeps it simple with a high-quality piece of toast, mashed avocado, and a sliced egg on top.
Fresh lemon juice added to the avocado adds a brightness to the dish and helps keep the avocado from browning.

There are a few good alternatives like lime or lime juice.
Lemon pepper also works well for flavoring, though it won’t help keep the avocado from browning.

This recipe starts with a simple flour tortilla, then layers on cheese, an egg, veggies, and jalapeno slices to boost heat. We guarantee this will be your new go-to for breakfast meals.
Adding slices of avocado to the dish gives it a nice, creamy flavor. You can still get a creamy taste without using avocado by including a dollop of crème Fraiche on top. It makes it more decadent and adds a slight tanginess.
Sometimes you just want a simple bacon and egg combo for breakfast. This delicious dish allows you to easily take your bacon and eggs on the go! As far as recipes with eggs, we’re quite fond of this one because of its portability.

Once you’ve made cloud eggs, there’s no going back to regular eggs and toast.
They’re fluffy, fun, and only take an extra minute or two versus the standard over-easy eggs. This dish is unique because you’ll be whipping the egg whites before cooking them to create the “cloud.”

The hidden ingredient will surprise you, as it’s not commonly included in egg breakfast sandwiches.
Give up on what the component is? It’s mayonnaise!

How can you craft a filling, low-carb breakfast? By making these yummy breakfast egg muffins! Choose between a tomato spinach mozzarella option, bacon cheddar, or garlic mushroom pepper.

The result is a perfect over-easy egg that you can dip your bread into. If you can’t find bread bowls, you can use dinner rolls instead.

Part of what makes this torte so appealing is the colorful vegetables layered inside. One such layer is made from spinach. Though, you can use baby kale as a delicious alternative.
Regular kale is another excellent option, though the stem will need to be removed. You may also want to cook it for a few minutes beforehand, so it’s not too tough to eat.
We promise that there’s no such thing as too many simple egg recipes! Especially when it comes to egg salad recipes. While this recipe is intended for sandwiches, you can just as easily use it for a salad topping.

While scrambled eggs may not seem like a challenging dish to make, the directions can be confusing because of the various recipes.
Some chefs say to include dairy, and some say that you should never use dairy. This scrambled egg method solves the debate once and for all – use dairy for fluffy and creamy eggs.

Enchiladas with bacon and eggs? Sign us up! This yummy take on enchiladas takes a classic dish and turns it into a delicious breakfast meal.

These steamed eggs are not fluffy because of dairy; they’re fluffy from anchovy broth. If it’s challenging to find this ingredient in stores, you can use water instead.
However, there will be a flavor difference when using this swap.
Scrambled egg pizza?! Yes, there’s such a thing! Skip the cold leftover pizza and make this breakfast version instead. It’s covered in a delicious smattering of toppings, from bacon to tomatoes, cheese, and eggs.
Part of what makes this recipe so tasty is the pizza dough base.
If you want a creative twist on this recipe, try using Pillsbury crescent roll dough instead. It will add a richer flavor and a flaky crust.

Since we already showed you an egg bake recipe, it’s only fair also to present a quiche recipe.
We’ve noted this as one of the best egg recipes since it has a perfectly flaky crust and delicious ingredients in the filling. It only takes about 35 minutes for this quiche to cook, so you can have it ready to serve in no time.

What makes this omelet so flavorful? Well, it has a good number of herbs and seasonings in it. For example, curry leaves are included in this omelet.
You can use other fresh herbs instead. Try including fresh basil; it’s much easier to find at the grocery store.
Scotch eggs are not reserved for British cuisine. This twist on the traditional British dish incorporates a yummy Asian flair for an unbeatable flavor.
Expect a delicious umami-flavored egg that’s wrapped in ground chicken. If you don’t enjoy chicken or want something richer, try using ground beef or pork instead. All three options work perfectly with the Asian-inspired seasonings.
