10 Great Ways to Cook Eggs - Easy, Different Egg Recipes

Updated on August 16, 2016

Eggs, eggs, eggs!

I love eggs. There are so many different ways to cook eggs. I love their versatility, and I love their price. Eggs are usually pretty cheap. Right now I have three dozen eggs in my refrigerator, because my favorite grocery store, Aldi, keeps selling them for 65 cents. 65 cents per dozen! That's unheard of. How can I pass them up?

Needless to say, I've been eating a lot of eggs. A quick scramble, over-easy, an omelet, whatever. Sometimes I put the scrambled ones in a tortilla wrap. With so many eggs in my fridge, I'm got to be creative to use them up. When the price goes up past 65 cents, perhaps I'll move on to something else to eat for a while, but for now . . . it's eggs!


Sometimes folding the omelet can be tricky. What I do is load the filling on one side of the omelet. That way, you can easily get your spatula under the empty side to fold it over.

10 Different Ways to Cook Eggs

Eggs really are one of the most versatile foods around. They can be used in recipes for baked goods or casseroles, but they also stand alone as a great food by themselves. I can make a whole meal out of them. I already mentioned that they are cheap. They are also low in calories--depending on how they are made. Here are ten of my favorite ways to cook eggs.


1. Scrambled Eggs

This is easy. Throw several eggs in a non-stick pan, pour in a little bit of milk, and mix. Stir occasionally until eggs are thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can also spice scrambled eggs up with chopped jalapenos or tomatoes, and even top them off with cheese or salsa.

2. Egg Over-Easy (or fried)

Well, we called it a fried egg where I grew up. Put an egg in grease or oil and cook it on both sides until cooked. I always liked them cooked just enough to cook the white part but leave the yolk soft. Others like them cooked longer so that the yolk hardens. You pick! Then add salt and pepper to taste.

A fried egg might be “country talk” for an egg over-easy, which involves cooking an egg on one side, and then turning it over once during the cooking process. An egg that is cooked sunny-side up is not turned, but some cooks baste the top by splashing the oil up onto the yolk.

3. Poached Eggs

I didn’t really discover the wonderfulness of poached eggs until I was an adult--and now? I love them! I feel I've been missing out all these years! My boyfriend (now ex) made them for me, and I was hooked. I bought a four-egg poacher for myself. The eggs go into round holders in the pan, and water boils underneath. I bought a poacher for my boyfriend since he loved making them, and sadly, the eggs stuck like crazy. The poacher pan I had bought at Aldi worked great, so when my b/f became an ex, I was glad that I had kept my own poacher so that I wouldn't have to depend on him for delicious poached eggs.

Take the eggs out when they are just past the slimy stage. Eat them with a little salt and pepper. Also, try mixing them with crushed crackers.That's my favorite way. You can also try them with cut up toast for variety.

Chef Paul shows you how to make a poached egg if you don't have an egg poacher.

4. Omelets

Omelets are a bit more complicated, but, boy, are they yummy! I like to take three eggs for a good-sized omelet. Mix eggs with a little milk. Pour into non-stick pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cook slowly so as not to burn. Have your ingredients ready beforehand that you want to put in your omelet. Once the bottom of the omelet starts to hold together, you can add your fillings.

The possibilities are endless. Use any combination of cheese, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, scallions, tomatoes, jalapenos, black or green olives, bacon, ham, or any other of your favorite fillers. Be creative. I love a spinach and cheese omelet! Take spatula and fold one side of omelet onto the other side. Let it cook until egg is no longer runny. You can top your creation with sour cream (my personal favorite), salsa, or even a Hollandaise sauce.

5. Boiled Eggs

If you can boil water, you can make this easy treat. Put water in a pan, bring water to a boil, and boil as many eggs as you want for seven minutes. Perfect every time.

Eat these eggs plain or chop up in salads. Boiled eggs make an excellent quick high-protein breakfast. You can also make deviled eggs or egg salad and other “salads,” which I will discuss shortly.


6. Fried Egg Sandwich

Simple and filling! Just fry an egg like we talked about earlier. Cook it enough so that the yolk isn’t too soft and spilling out of your sandwich. Put the egg between two pieces of your favorite bread with mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip, if that’s your preference). Add cheese, if you’d like. Even a thin piece of ham is tasty on an egg sandwich. Make your own egg sandwich once, and you will be hooked!

7. Deviled Eggs

These little "devils" sure are tasty! Run cold water over your boiled eggs. Peel and half them. Separate yolk with spoon. Mix with mayo, a squirt of mustard, and sweet pickle relish (to your taste). Add salt and pepper. Spoon into halved egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika.

Oh, I love these little guys. I could eat a whole tray of them myself!

And is it worth it to have a deviled egg tray to serve these guys in? I think so. I inherited an old ceramic deviled egg plate from my mom, and since then my step-mother has given me a plastic container with a lid that's great to take places. My brother even borrowed it! I make deviled eggs enough that I think it's worth it to have specialized containers.

8. Egg (and other) Salads

For egg salad, chop up your boiled eggs with mayo, a squirt of mustard, salt and pepper, and your choice of the following: sweet or dill relish, chopped dill pickles, or green olives. I’ve tried them all, and they are all excellent…or should I say eggs-cellent! For other "salads," follow these instructions, but add ham, chicken, turkey, or tuna, to make ham

9. French Toast

With French toast, you don’t taste the egg as much, but this is a great treat! Mix up about one egg per two or three pieces of bread. Add milk and vanilla flavoring to egg mixture. Sop bread with it and fry in small amount of oil or cooking spray. Turn to get both sides browned. Sprinkle with cinnamon and/or powdered sugar. Top with syrup.

I’ve made several quiches. They’re not really difficult. They just take a little more time and sometimes more ingredients.

      I love eggs done any way, but especially in an omelette.I like to do my omelette very quickly, without adding milk and then adding a filling such as cream cheese in a dollop just before turning it out. With this technique, you move the egg around in the frying pan to get the bottom to set faster (without actually turning it into scrambled eggs). Once the bottom has set, the omelette is almost ready and needs very little more cooking. I have also done scrambled eggs in the microwave. They take 90 seconds and the bowl is easier to clean than a saucepan. I whisk up 3 eggs in a glass jug, add a knob of butter and seasoning to taste, then put on "high" for 90 seconds. I stop it at one minute and mix it up well, then return for the rest of the time. You may need to experiment a little with the timings in your microwave.

      I have come across, and now have, a microwaveable omelet maker which will do omelets in 3.5 minutes for duck or chicken eggs, two at a time with ingredients. and almost as importantly: it cleans easily, and is ready for the next omelet. Price: about $3.

      On special occasions, I also like to makes eggs in a blanket. Basically you butter a piece of bread, cut out a hole in the center, and place the bread on a hot frying pan. Then fry an egg in the middle of the buttery toast. Not to healthy, but soooo delish!!

      Hi Vicki,

      Eggs are so versatile an ingredient. We often enjoy omelets at home and as you mentioned...the list of ingredients can be up to one's imagination. I often use minced onions, peppers, grated zucchini and some cheese. Mushrooms are also a great ingredient as are tomatoes. Then there is spinach....the list goes on! Up and useful votes.

      My dad use to make us the best “basted” eggs. That is when you cook them sunnyside-up and then add a bit of water (some use fat) to cook the tops. They are not as runny as sunnyside-up but still have soft yokes. They looked perfect and tasted great. We called them “dunk’n eggs” as we would dunk our toast into the yolk.

      You are so right, eggs are very versitile. I could eat egs every day of the week and not get tired of them. I have a daughter who is allergic to eggs. I feel sorry for her. But, when I make potato salad, which includes boilded eggs (chopped), I make a separate batch for her without the eggs. Poor thing... she doesn't get the full enjoyment of meals made with eggs. Thank you for the helpful hint about how long to boil eggs. I think I have been boiling mine too long.

      coolshine--I love tomatoes, too, so eggs and tomatoes sound like a great combination. I'm not familiar with Millet--will have to look that up. Thanks for reading and commenting!

      Gloshei--Variety is fun. I need to remember to do more variety, too, such as the french toast more often! Thanks for commenting.

      tebo--And I've never had the curried eggs. I might have to try those, too. I don't make french toast often, but I love it when I do. I should make it more often!!! Thanks for coming by!

      mmm! I love eggs. Great hub, great recipes, I can't wait to try several of them out!

      My favorite way to make scrambled eggs, add some cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, and a few spinach leaves. Just thought I'd share with you too!

      Interesting use of eggs, we all tend to stick to the same thing love french toast must try it again. I always put a cheese slice with scrambled egg and do them in the mike, I must try your way it is handy for quickness.

      Thanks again

      Hi Victoria Lynn - good reminder of how many ways we can cook eggs. I have tried curried eggs, but not deviled eggs - they sound yum - I must try them out, and the french toast - I always forget about that. Thanks for recipes.

      ftclick--Interesting about the perception of egg salad, but I can see that. Sometimes foods from other cultures can seem strange to us at first. Thanks for your input.

      Great I know 5 ways. Omelet, scrambled, over easy, french toast, and egg salad which foreign people thought was odd the first time they saw it.
