    I love Eggs Benedict. I used to go to a little restaurant in Evanston Il that made a variation they called Eggs Sardou, using a fried green tomato instead of the English muffin and it was amazing!

  • pwsnook  on  3/25/2014 at 5:19 PM

    Soft scrambled eggs and onions! My mom would beat the eggs by hand with a rotary egg beater until they were foamy and then pour them into an electric skillet over chopped onions that had been slowly cooked in butter. She would cover the skillet and occasionally lift the lid to fold the eggs until soft pillows formed. I have never been able to make these eggs like she did, but I keep trying!

  • sipa  on  3/25/2014 at 5:58 PM

    Spagetti Carbonara, but really anything gets an egg on it at my house. Tonight avocado on toast topped with an egg.

  • acorgihouse  on  3/25/2014 at 7:25 PM

    Fried Rice, what I had for dinner tonight. I make it different every time, but I always put in more eggs than normally used because I love the soft scrambled eggs with the savory seasoning and the soy sauce twang. Love it.

  • danibattle  on  3/25/2014 at 8:13 PM

    I keep it simple, poached egg on unbuttered toast with a few shakes of tabasco sauce.

  • wester  on  3/26/2014 at 3:05 AM

    Egg salad, with homemade mayonnaise of course.

    A salad (with bacon in it!) with a poached egg on top. Egg yolk makes the best sauce, doesn't it?

  • sgump  on  3/26/2014 at 6:37 PM

    "Syrian eggs with rhubarb"; for recipes, see Gil Mark's *Olive Trees and Honey* or Jennifer Felicia Abadi's *A Fistful of Lentils.* Delicious!

  • Queezle_Sister  on  3/26/2014 at 6:58 PM

    A single lovely egg, over easy, with za'ater, and served with whole grain bread. Because I usually have my own chickens, and thus the best eggs, a simple preparation truly showcases the egg.

  • angiehoggett  on  3/26/2014 at 7:26 PM

    I'm a big fan of eggs. I can have them with just about anything. But I can't resist to breakfast creamy soft scrambled eggs & bacon, egg sandwich (runny yolk, of course), fresh egg salad, Benedicts. I have eggs every single day...

  • sabrina7  on  3/27/2014 at 5:10 AM

  • EdieD  on  3/27/2014 at 6:24 PM

    That;s definitely a soft boiled egg with just some salt. The person who invented that,sure deserves a statue. Two statues.

  • TheSpicedLife  on  3/27/2014 at 7:35 PM

    Hard Boiled Eggs with dijon mustard, a jam of some sort (currently using a garlic and onion jam) and good sea salt. Swoon!

    Eggs make everything better. Gotta love a sourdough toast fried egg sandwich, egg fried in just a bit of olive oil, with a slather of herbed mayo.

  • pgarcia  on  3/29/2014 at 4:55 PM

    I love Deviled Eggs!

    Has to be a frittata, a few eggs with some veggies and cheese and it's a complete meal, brunch or dinner!

  • brynapg  on  3/29/2014 at 6:28 PM

    a tangy shakshuka or a swiss chard tart with lots of cream, eggs and smoked gouda in a butter crust.

  • dgcbooth  on  3/29/2014 at 6:47 PM

    Coddled eggs!

    Scrambled eggs with chives and goat cheese. Or, anything with a poached egg!

  • jannic  on  3/29/2014 at 7:18 PM

    Zucchini slice. It's a baked style of egg slice with zucchini, bacon, onion and cheese. A bit like a baked frittata.

  • mjirsch  on  3/29/2014 at 8:26 PM

    deviled eggs

  • cocecitycook  on  3/29/2014 at 8:56 PM

    huevos rancheros or an omelet with fontina cheese and asparagus or pasta carbonara. I have chickens running loose in by backyard and I must use up all of those lovely eggs they leave for me!

  • Beckiemas  on  3/29/2014 at 9:53 PM

    I LOVE adding a boiled egg to a lentil salad bowl. It adds to much depth and is really brought out by salt and pepper. It's a very delightful and simple pleasure.

  • Ordinaryblogger  on  3/29/2014 at 10:30 PM

    Fried egg over butternut squash and freekeh.

    Boiled egg and toast soldiers. I eat it for breakfast every day and never get tired of it.

  • JanScholl  on  3/30/2014 at 1:08 AM

    Vegetarian bimimbab. It's my fav Korean dish. Must be served in a stone bowl.

  • gjelizabeth  on  3/30/2014 at 4:51 AM

    An egg steam-poached on top of sautéed vegetables (whatever is in the crisper but starting with a chopped onion) using the fat from a slice of bacon, bacon reserved and crumbled on top with a grind of fresh pepper. Yum.

  • debbzt  on  3/30/2014 at 4:57 AM

    A fresh salad full of our beautiful herbs from our garden, sweet cherry tomatoes, baby peas, lightly seared asparagus, toasted pinenuts, chopped up crispy bacon, cubes of fresh brie, piled high in a bowl.....topped off with a lightly poached egg and drizzled with a good balsamic vinegar!.....yumm!

    Coddled eggs cooked on a base of slow cooked mushrooms, with a spoonful of sour cream and grated Gruyere cheese on top

    Egg salad sandwich with perfectly hard-boiled eggs -- delicate, not gummy, whites and brightly yellow, not green-tinged, yolks. Could it eat it every day!

  • ltsuk  on  3/31/2014 at 2:51 AM

    Deviled eggs!

    Eggs Benedict for me, or maybe a really good egg foo yung...

  • dcockburn  on  3/31/2014 at 12:29 PM

    Wow too many to choose. Eggs Benedict is right up there though.

  • HelenB  on  3/31/2014 at 9:34 PM

    I love eggs, but if I had to choose one special way to eat them, I would say a Grand Marnier soufle with creme anglaise.

  • sailor  on  3/31/2014 at 11:21 PM

    i love stuffed eggs because you can make them in so many different ways.

  • earthnfire  on  4/1/2014 at 4:49 PM

    Huevos rancheros, but I don't make them enough.

    Eggs Benedict

  • debkellie  on  4/3/2014 at 1:40 AM

    For me: It has to be quiche of some sort (particularly as we grow our own eggs) : and this is my present favourite: Tarte Flamiche try it for yourself at:

  • Dorothy  on  4/3/2014 at 10:55 AM

    Huevos rancheros, hands down. (If I get to pick two, then frittata would the second!)

  • herby  on  4/3/2014 at 2:08 PM

    My favourite breakfast is toast topped with avocado, thinly sliced tomato and perfectly cooked sunny side up egg - so good!

  • trudys_person  on  4/3/2014 at 4:33 PM

    My favourite egg dish is my husband's Popover Pancake (aka Dutch Baby) - at least once a week for breakfast! After that, omelettes, quiche, frittata ... eggs are very versatile!

  • Brandeemk  on  4/3/2014 at 5:47 PM

    I LOVE eggs. Quiche has always been my standby for the many ways it can be prepared. Recently a Japanese friend hooked me on Ketchup Rice with runny scrambled eggs stirred in.

  • pokarekare  on  4/4/2014 at 2:10 AM

    Plain poached eggs from my own chickens, scrambled eggs done Mum's way [chives and parsley etc. gently heated in plenty of butter, then break eggs directly into pan and scramble oh so gently, adding s&p to taste.]. Asian comfort food - a bowl of hot steamed rice topped with quickly stir-fried green onions, then heat pan very high, drop in egg, turn as soon as it is firm on the bottom and remove while the yolk is still runny inside. Top with soy sauce and get out the chopsticks!!!

  • wmhinshaw  on  4/4/2014 at 7:52 AM

  • hihelen_westbrook  on  4/7/2014 at 6:49 AM

    Eggs benedict or huevos rancheros, depends on my mood.

  • kristenn  on  4/7/2014 at 7:43 AM

    Huevos rancheros! But I also do this great quick combination of Taste Bite Bombay Potatoes, 'Italian blend' frozen veggies, and an egg on top.

  • Sarabclever  on  4/7/2014 at 9:59 AM

    Huevos rancheros--something I need to start making at home.

    Eggs benedict

  • rivergait  on  4/11/2014 at 5:25 PM

    Lemon Curd...which uses 2 eggs plus 2 egg yolks. When you have as many chickens as I do, ANYTHING made with eggs is my go-to menu item.

  • dinnermints  on  4/11/2014 at 7:47 PM

    Eggs en cocotte - a little chutney or pesto or other sauce in the bottom of buttered ramekins, drop in the eggs, bake in a water bath, sprinkle with herbs/cheese/salt & pepper. Beautiful for brunch.

    Eggs Norwegian, which is like eggs Benedict, but with smoked salmon substituted for the Canadian bacon. Yummy.

  • robinj  on  4/17/2014 at 4:09 PM

    Boy, I'm struggling between eggs benedict made with tomatoes, spinach and avocado instead of canadian bacon and shakshuka. Maybe the first for brunch/breakfast and the second for dinner.

  • florador  on  4/17/2014 at 4:47 PM

    Egg frittata, with sauteed onions, red peppers, and left over baked potatoes. Umm!

  • tcjanes  on  4/17/2014 at 4:53 PM

    Baked custard.

  • Linda41  on  4/17/2014 at 5:08 PM

    I love to make oven baked frittatas with whatever strikes my fancy. Saute up some onions, mushrooms, peppers, spinach and bacon. Mix together some cheese and eggs with turmeric and any other spices. Bake it in a pie pan, and it's wonderful. Sometimes I use leftover lamb, or lima beans, or peas. Sometimes I use crab and Old Bay. The eggs are what bring it all together into one satisfying dish.

  • lindastevens  on  4/17/2014 at 5:23 PM

    I love making a Frittata with leftovers, a little chili to spice it up topped with grated cheese.

  • Carpecookie  on  4/17/2014 at 5:23 PM

    Eggs Benedict- perfectly soft-poached eggs topped with even more eggs in the lemony hollandaise: it's a decadent brunch dish, feels like I'm getting away with something when I indulge.

  • jheinold  on  4/17/2014 at 7:25 PM

    savory cheesecake made with lots of eggs, some creamed cheese and salmon (both fresh and smoked).

    It's gotta be Eggs Benedict - but only if I make them myself.

    tortilla española.....egg frittata with potatoes and onions.

  • PatriciaScarpin  on  4/18/2014 at 11:20 AM

    I'm a sucker for omelettes - not only do they taste delicious, they remind me of my mom.

  • cptnruthless  on  4/18/2014 at 1:48 PM

    Deviled eggs - made with plain yogurt instead of mayo. I could easily eat a dozen's worth by myself.

  • nomadchowwoman  on  4/18/2014 at 3:19 PM

    I'm with so many others here--eggs benedict. And if you want to sub a crab cake for the Canadian bacon, I will follow you anywhere.

  • jobeth  on  4/18/2014 at 4:52 PM

    Mrs Jang's home-style fried eggs (courtesy of Kylie Kwong). Free range eggs fried in the wok and topped with white pepper, spring onions, oyster sauce and a chopped chilli. Crunchy, sweet, savoury, spicy. A rival to bacon and eggs.

  • tjnelson1hotmail  on  4/19/2014 at 10:28 PM

    I have two favorites....Spanish tortilla and chilaquiles (a simple version with an egg or two in the middle served with fresh herbs and crisp tortilla strips fried up just before adding the eggs). Yum to both!

  • kasiafromlondon  on  4/20/2014 at 1:07 PM

    I love my husband'a hash. A sauté of onions, green peppers, potatoes, garlic and herbs with eggs cracked on top and lots of ketchup.
