Egg a day keeps the doctor away. Among the sea of egg recipes these are most wholesome, easy and quick egg recipes to prepare every day. It is a good habit to eat eggs daily because they are a great source of protein and full of important vitamins and minerals.
I like to eat a variety of foods, and I am not eat-only-hard-boiled-egg kind of person. I like it to be a whole meal. That is why I made a month-long list of egg recipes to rotate daily. Yes I know month has 30-31 day but sometimes life happens and you don’t eat eggs everyday, therefore
25 QUICK EGG RECIPES
1. Egg&Banana Pancakes with blueberries
Let’s start this list with dessert. Because pancakes for breakfast, especially healthier version of pancakes is the best choice. Flour free and sugar free, but full of delicious flavours. With addition of fresh blueberry syrup. Hello favourite sunday breakfast.
2. Cheesy Cauliflower with Poached Eggs
Want to eat more cauliflower because it’s healthy but don’t know how to include it in meal? Ta-da I present you this lovely meal (which makes a great dinner). To be honest I rarely poach eggs it’s too much uncertainty about that business. Instead I simply boil them to medium hard so egg yolk is not runny but is still soft and creamy.
3. vEGGing Out
Just look at those colorful vegetables. Don’t you just wish to eat them? This is another healthy meal that is full of all good things your organism needs. There are few changes I made to vegetable preparation. First always use fresh vegetables. Second prepare veggies so you immerse them in boiling water for 5 minutes, drain, salt&peper and drizzle with olive oil.
4. Huevos Rancheros
For a mexican breakfast make these delicious eggs. Seriously it is so easy to make this dish just warm tortilla+fried eggs+spicy salsa=breakfast to wake up for.
5. Sweet Pea&Egg Tortillas
This one is my favorite, big tortilla fan over here. Under ingredients you will see edamame, those are green soya beans (like this) and if you can’t buy them just add more peas or chickpeas. Paste can be stored in fridge for few days so you can quickly prepare healthy and tasty breakfast or lunch to take to work.
6. Ravioli Frittata
You know when making ravioli or tortellini you always think you can eat more and you end up with a lot of leftovers. That is where this beautiful frittata comes in. Ravioli for lunch – frittata for dinner, talk about frugality.
7. Breakfast Tostada
Do you always have to have chili in the house? Do you always look for ways to put it in every dish? Then this is for you. Check this out: tortilla (yes, again, I love it what can I say), chilli, fried egg. So simple. So tasty.
8. Breakfast Tostada
It’s not a typo, or a mistake. Yes breakfast tostada again, but just because this one is little bit more elaborate. Few more ingredients and a little bit more work about it. It’s good to have options in my opinion. One is for busy days other for free days, both worthy of your attention.
9. Ricotta Omelet
No egg variation beats good prepared omelet. It is so light and fluffy with a ricotta freshness. Bound to make your morning a little bit more luxurious. I change this recipe little bit, take away parmesan, use olive oil not butter. Finished omelet sprinkle with crushed and toasted brazil nuts (daily dose of selenium), I find they give a nice roasted aroma.
10. Simple Omelet
Let me tell you something, there is nothing simple about this omelet, except preparation. Prepared like every omelet but then comes melted cheese, fresh tomatoes, creamy avocado, crispy bacon…or whatever is on hand at the moment.
11. Turkish Fried Eggs in Herbed Yogurt
I am a big fan of this blog. So many tasty recipes and beautiful photos. Like this one, ok it is a 30 minute preparation but it is worth it. Especially yogurt sauce it goes so well with fried eggs. Try it believe me you will not regret it.
12. Zucchini Pasta with Poached Eggs
Recently I got caught up in vegetable pasta, because I try to reduce carbs, and bought this cool spiralizer. And this recipe is something I make regularly. With little modifications depending on what I have on hand in the moment. Recipe is so simple and easy it’s ridiculous.
And check out zoodles cookbook for more inspiration on low carb journey.
13. Baked Asparagus Frittata
Asparagus are one healthy green. They are full of nutrients and antioxidants. They are natural diuretic, and aid to mental flexibility. I like my mind flexible and I love asparagus. That is why this recipe is on my egg a day list.
14. Goat Cheese and Eggs Toast with Peas and Dill
I love this breakfast toast. It is light, simple, nutritious and tasty. You can prepare different variations. Instead of goat cheese use cream cheese, cottage cheese or avocado for dairy free version. And peas you can switch for lamb’s lettuce or rocket salad or maybe smoked salmon.
15. Veggie Pesto Scrambled Eggs
Just looking at these colours you know it’s something healthy. And then you try it, and you cannot believe it is not bad for you. Spinach full of fibers and nutrients, nice juicy tomatoes and avocado with its healthy fats. Healthy, wholesome meal for whole family, ready on the table in 15 minutes.
16. Asparagus, Bacon, Herbed Goat Cheese Frittata
One more asparagus and eggs combination. They go so well together. Have you tried hard-boiled eggs and steamed asparagus drizzled with olive oil. Anyway, this is a nice filling meal with flavorful herbs for a special kick.
17. Apple Onion Scrambled Eggs
I admit, I was sceptic and intrigued about this recipe. But it fitted perfectly, little advice use sour apples. Although you must be warned, once you try there is no going back. It is big probability you will never eat scrambled eggs without the apple.
18. Freezer Breakfast Burritos
Meal that is literally ready in 3 minutes. After you prepare it and store in freezer, of course. There is some calmness in the air when you know there are burritos in freezer.
19. Mini Egg Cups
If you are not a burrito fan (I don’t understand you at all, but whatever) here is another freezer friendly meal. I must admit I love miniature food. I feel like a giant at a dinner for regular sized people. It’s fun!
20. Baked Eggs in Tomato Sauce
Seriously, you have to try this now. Read the recipe, go to kitchen, prepare everything and when you put in oven to bake come back to read the rest of the post. There are no words to describe how good this is. You will just have to make it and then we can talk about how good it was.
21. Avocado Breakfast Burrito
Breakfast burrito again? Yes, because it is BURRITO. It is so nice and wrapped and warm and full of layers of tasty ingredients. And of course tortilla. Which if you are not, you should be making yourself. It is so easy to make it, and much healthier than store-bought.
22. Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs
Salmon is the best source of that healthy omega-3 and it’s tasty. Two very good reasons to have it in meals. This is pretty basic recipe, to which you can add few more ingredients. I like to add rocket salad and capers (chopped up) and recommend you to try it out.
23. Quick Breakfast Muffins
Wake up at 6:30. Have a cup of breakfast and cup of coffee. It is little bit on a carbs side, but now and then it doesn’t hurt. It is very simple and fast meal.
24. Squash Frittata with Herbs
This is classic summer dinner. Grated or cubed squash (or zucchini) and ricotta frittata topped with a blend of fresh herbs and lemon juice. Just lovely.
25. Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese, Rocket Salad in Croissant
Croissant sandwich is something that is surprisingly good. Although croissant and hazelnut spread are still the best combination. If you want croissant with a little more substance this is what you need. Scrambled eggs, goat cheese and rocket salad. It is such a nice combination of flavours.
That concludes the egg-a-day list. Hope you enjoyed and you will be making these quick egg recipes in the future.
