Put an Egg on It

Looking for some egg inspiration? Check out this collection of Quick & Easy Egg Recipes on Shutterbean.com

It’s only Thursday and I’m  already thinking about breakfast for this weekend. At least one of our weekend breakfasts has something with eggs in it. There’s nothing like a leisurely breakfast with eggs and coffee.  If you’re already thinking about breakfast this weekend or you’ve (always) got eggs in your fridge, here are some of my favorite ways to

PUT AN EGG ON IT:

Scrambled eggs with broccoli cheddar and hot sauce served on toast.

Best decision ever. We use it almost every single day.

Speaking of panini…. I made a cheesy omelet here and threw it into a grilled tortilla.

When in doubt, just hard-boil some eggs and add a little salt.

Perfection!  Also, I’m loving hard-boiled eggs in my new Instant Pot.

High pressure/manual for 6 minutes with 1/2 cup water (and the eggs on top of the basket). Manual release and immediate ice bath. The shells peel off like A DREAM.

I was reading somewhere lately that someone puts salami in their eggs.

OMG. YOU NEED TO TRY IT. If you fry it up a bit before you put the eggs in, it tastes like bacon.

I paired it with leftover broccolini panini that I reheated in the panini press. YUM.

Dinner is just a few minutes away with this Mushroom Ramen recipe made with Imagine Broths & Soups. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!
