12 Creative Ways To Serve Eggs In The Evening

Posted In: Food | Posted By: Anj

The Incredible Edible Egg. It’s one of the best slogans around, and it rings true for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While getting creative in the kitchen with the ABCDE diet, we’ve found ourselves testing the limits of the egg from baking to boiling and everything in between. The recent craze of throwing fried eggs on just about everything (burgers, pizza, grilled cheese) hit home for us and got us thinking, where else can you put an egg on it? And so, without further ado, presenting our roundup of a dozen delicious ways to make eggs for dinner.

1. Baked Egg Rolls
These baked egg rolls scored a lot of points at Brit HQ. Adorable? Yes. Self-contained? Why...yes! Great for any meal of the week, we can see these rolls accompanying a light soup or hearty salad. And they definitely leave room for lots of improvisation. (Recipe and photo: Modaretto)

2. Egg Biryani
When you’ve got a hankering for chicken curry but are serving a vegetarian dinner, eggs will always do the job. This egg biryani is another delicious way to incorporate hard boiled eggs in Indian cooking. Not only do the eggs absorb the flavors on the outside, but the creamy yolks on the inside provide a nice respite from the spices. (Recipe and photo: Kurry Leaves)

3. Deconstructed BLT and Eggs
We love deconstructing things, and this deconstructed BLT is right up our alley. If you’re of the vegetarian persuasion, change things up and go for the ALT (avocado, lettuce and tomato). (Recipe and photo: Eat Live Travel Write)

4. Bacon Mushroom Scallion Frittata
Frittatas are a classic egg dish and, with the addition of mushrooms and scallions, shift easily into the dinner realm. If you’re cooking a meal for many, cook up a bunch of these and reheat in the oven before serving. (Recipe and photo: All Seasons Cuisine)

5. Mexican Baked Eggs
The best thing about baking eggs is that you can get super creative with ingredients. We love to make these when we’ve got a few odds and ends in the fridge, or even using leftovers. This Mexican take on baked eggs is great for those mornings when you crave Huevos Ranchers but with a twist. (Recipe and photo: Closet Cooking)

6. Flatbread with Arugula, Asparagus and Fried Eggs
Arugula, asparagus and fried eggs go together like . This flatbread combines fresh flavors with hearty ones, and is great for lunch or dinner. (Recipe and photo: Bon Appetit)

7. Egg Yolk Ravioli with Bacon-Sage Sauce
Handmade ravioli is a fine art, and adding piped ricotta and an egg yolk in the middle elevates it to a truly decadent dining experience. Take your time with this one, and feel free to freestyle with a couple different creamy cheeses and herbs. (Recipe and photo: CHOW)

8. Bacon and Leek Risotto with Poached Egg
You guessed it. It turns out bacon and eggs, even at the dinner table, are best friends forever. Perfect for a cold winter night, this risotto will fill your belly with culinary goodness. For a veggie version, try sun-dried tomatoes or shiitake mushrooms. (Recipe and photo: Bon Appetit)

9. Angel Hair Pasta with Mushroom, Basil, Fried Egg
Another recipe of the pasta persuasion, this takes a simple angel hair pasta and kicks it up a notch with egg, mushroom and fresh basil. We love the addition of red chili pepper flakes for a dose of fire. (Recipe and photo: ECurry)

10. Turmeric Spiced Egg Salad
A great appetizer or first course, this Turmeric Egg crostini delivers a super scrumptious potpourri of flavor in every bite. We recommend spooning a layer of plain greek yogurt onto toasted bread before adding the egg and cucumber. (Recipe and photo: Season With Spice)

11. Lemony Parsley Egg Soup
Egg soup? Yes please. This lemony soup is super simple, and uses egg for thickening. If you’re in the middle of a health month, skip the heavy cream and cut out one cup of stock. (Recipe: NYTimes; photo: Stylish Cuisine)

12. Green Eggs and Him (Veggies, Fried Egg, Arugula Walnut Pesto)
We love a clever name, especially in the form of an ode to Dr. Seuss. This is another recipe that calls for lots of improvisation based on what veggies are in season, in your fridge, or available at the closest market. We made a version using sliced brussel sprouts, asparagus, edamame, and sugar snap peas. (Recipe and photo: The Delicious Life)
