What To Make With What’s On Sale: Eggs

It’s Friday — time for What To Make With What’s On Sale!  Easter is just around the corner, and we’re seeing good prices on eggs this week.  A dozen large eggs are $1.00 at King Soopers (or just $0.50 with the printable coupon.)  Albertsons also has a dozen large eggs for $1.00 ($0.72 with the coupon.)

Eggs are one of the most versatile and nutritious foods in the kitchen.  Here are some yummy and creative ways to use eggs!

Eggs are most often consumed at breakfast — scrambled, boiled, poached, fried, basted…how do you like your eggs?  Here’s a fabulous step-by-step recipe for making perfectly basted eggs.  Whether the eggs come out over-easy or well-done depends on the time in the skillet.  Be sure to watch the eggs closely because they cook quickly!

Eggs are an important ingredient in lots of breads and breakfast foods.  Here are two breakfast (or anytime) recipes — one for crepes and one for a Dutch baby — that use several eggs as ingredients.  I like serving these items for my family because I know they’re getting some quality protein along with their grains and fruits.

Quiches and frittatas are another great way to use eggs.  This frittata recipe is fairly simple and can be adapted to your taste preferences.  (Try sprinkling some grated cheese over the top during the last few minutes of baking!)

If you have boiled eggs leftover from Easter, try chopping them up for egg salad!  When done right, egg salad makes a satisfying and healthy meal.  Try this recipe for Egg Salad Sandwiches — simple and tasty.  For a change of taste and texture, try adding a bit of curry powder and some finely diced apples to the mixture!

Have you ever thought of using eggs to make soup?  Here’s a “No Recipe” Recipe for Egg Drop Soup.  It’s an easy lunch with just a few ingredients, great for those weeks when you’re cooking from the pantry!

This Bacon-and-Egg Soup looks delicious too, and I’m thinking it could be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

  1. I haven’t tried it yet, but my friend Lynn’s recipe for Eggs and Soy Sauce over Rice looks kind of good – and super cheap! http://www.lynnskitchenadventures.com/2012/03/eggs-and-soy-sauce-over-rice.html

    I’m thinking that a dessert with lemon curd (uses lots of egg yolks) would be yummy… And the waffle recipe I use (from an America’s Test Kitchen cookbook) uses several egg whites.

    Crepes sound good, too… Thinking I need to pick up some cream to make mascarpone and make stuffed crepes for dessert!

  2. FYI–Albertson’s coupon doubled! enjoy!
