    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  March 25, 2014

    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  March 25, 2014

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

  • acorgihouse  on  March 25, 2014

    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.

    "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  March 26, 2014

    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.

    deviled eggs

  • cocecitycook  on  March 29, 2014

  • Beckiemas  on  March 29, 2014

    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.

  • debbzt  on  March 30, 2014

    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!

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

  • HelenB  on  March 31, 2014

    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  March 31, 2014

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

  • earthnfire  on  April 1, 2014

  • crandall57  on  April 1, 2014

    Eggs Benedict

  • debkellie  on  April 3, 2014

    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  April 3, 2014

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

  • herby  on  April 3, 2014

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

  • trudys_person  on  April 3, 2014

    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  April 3, 2014

    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  April 4, 2014

    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  April 4, 2014

  • dinnermints  on  April 11, 2014

    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.

    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  April 17, 2014

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

  • tcjanes  on  April 17, 2014

    Baked custard.

  • Linda41  on  April 17, 2014

    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  April 17, 2014

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

  • Carpecookie  on  April 17, 2014

    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.

  • nomadchowwoman  on  April 18, 2014

    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  April 18, 2014

    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  April 19, 2014

    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!
