Never underestimate an egg. Yes, that’s right, this post is all about eggs! We have them sunny side up for breakfast, we mix them into our cookie and cake batters, and we dip our chicken cutlets in them. Eggs have always been there for us, and they can take your dish to the next level.

I’m going through a phase lately where I put a fried or dropped egg on almost everything.

Here are 5 ways an egg(s) can save your meal:

  • Homemade fried rice: Take that left over rice in the fridge and turn it into homemade fried rice. Chop up some carrots, throw in a can of peas, even add some extra chopped onions into a sauté pan. Cook those up – then toss in your rice and gluten free soy sauce. Continue to stir your rice so it doesn’t stick to the pan. Right before it’s done, crack two eggs on top of the rice and toss consistently with your spatula so the egg gets incorporated throughout.
  • Egg Drop Sweet Potato BakeThis dish comes in handy when you don’t have much in the house, but you want a fulfilling breakfast or even dinner. Take a sweet potato or regular potato and bake it in the oven. Once it’s almost done, crack a fried egg on top. Take it out, top with a little sriracha or ketchup and you are good to go.
  • Easy Brussels Sprouts and Mushroom Pizza with Egg: Another kick I’m on is breakfast pizzas. They are easy to make and are great to serve when you are having company. Pick any toppings you’d like – I usually go with some vegetables and/or spicy sausage – then crack a few eggs on top so when you pull a piece a part, the egg runs onto the crust.
  • Hard Boiled Eggs: Pump up your salad with a thinly sliced or chopped hard boiled egg. What’s great about hard boiled eggs, is that you can make them ahead of time, so they are easily to grab and go.
  • Veggie Egg Cups To Go: Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. I’ve noticed that since I’ve been working out a lot lately, that I am STARVING in the morning. Since I usually running around getting ready in the morning, I make egg cups the night before so I can easily bring them to work and heat them up. Easy as pie – but maybe not as delicious as pie.
