9 New Ways to Enjoy Eggs

There comes a time in every person’s life when simple scrambled eggs just aren’t cutting it anymore. Sure, they’re easy and quick and pretty delicious, but we all know eggs have the potential to be so much more. Adding vegetables, meat and even fruit to egg dishes takes the protein-packed breakfast staple to the next level. We found frittatas, quiches, casseroles and other egg-friendly entrees that will help you harness the nutritional power of eggs and, more importantly, keep you satisfied through to your next meal.

Graduate from the scrambled variety and add one—or all nine—of these egg recipes to your cooking repertoire.
