Scrambled, poached, baked or fried — eggs make the ultimate morning meal (and occasional evening one). Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy them this season.
|Smoked Salmon Scramble with Cream Cheese and Herbs
Smoked salmon and cream cheese are perfect partners, usually found on a bagel, but you can also find them tucked into a fluffy egg scramble such as this one. A sprinkling of chopped chives and dill adds a fresh herbal accent.
|Fried Eggs with Asparagus, Pancetta and Bread Crumbs
Crispy pancetta takes classic buttered bread crumbs to the next level. Accompany the eggs and asparagus with toasts drizzled with olive oil.
|Egg Sandwiches with Wilted Spinach
This sandwich is special enough for a weekend brunch but quick enough to assemble for weekday mornings. If you don’t have Manchego cheese, use a sharp white cheddar instead.
|Eggs Baked in Tomato-Paprika Sauce
Fennel seeds and smoked paprika amp up the flavor of this tomato sauce, which is topped with eggs and then quickly baked. Serve with toasted bread for an easy brunch or weeknight supper.
|Garlicky Spinach and Parmesan Frittata
Serve this beautiful, flavorful frittata any time of day. Pair with a salad of mixed greens, fresh sliced fruit and toasted nuts, along with crusty bread.
|Baked Eggs with Spinach and Cream
This elegant dish is easy to make ahead and it serves a crowd. You can cook the spinach and distribute it among the ramekins early, then add the eggs and bake just before serving.
|Toasted Breakfast Sandwich
Made with crispy bacon, fried eggs and cheddar cheese, this sandwich is great for quick meals. Fresh arugula adds a peppery note.
|Lots-of-Herbs Omelette Stuffed with Brie
Fresh tarragon, chervil and chives star in this easy omelette, made with fluffy eggs and creamy Brie cheese.
