Egg Recipes

Updated on September 19, 2012

How do you like your eggs? Scrambled? Over-easy? Hard-boiled? What about in oatmeal or with apples? Eggs provide 13 essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are considered one of the best sources for protein, which can help you build muscle and increase your metabolism. And a dozen of eggs cost less than $2, making it a cheap item. But sometimes eating eggs the same way can get boring.

Just adding different foods to eggs can mix it up as well. Try adding a new vegetable with it, like basil or spinach. Different cheeses also go well with eggs. Hard-boiled eggs can be mixed into pasta, salads, sandwiches, or use different spices on them. I've provided some recipes that are quick, easy and healthy.

Egg Oatmeal

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup instant oatmeal

1/4 cup greek yogurt

1/2 apple, diced

1. Beat the egg and milk into a microwave-safe bowl.

2. Stir in the oatmeal.

3. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, until egg is set and milk is absorbed. Top with yogurt and apples.

      All of them look very attractive to me. I am also on the egg defenders team!!!! They are good in every way. I even wrote a hub about incorporating vegetables at breakfast with a healthy breakfast idea of scrambled eggs with nopal (prickly pear, nopal cactus), though it could apply to any vegetable really.

      Here is the link: https://hubpages.com/food/howtomakescrambledeggswi...

      I should insert a backlink to your hub as well!

      You know it has been years since I made a frittata. Why? I don't know actually, but I do like to have an egg in the morning. Actually, all these recipes sound excellent. it is 6:24am and maybe by the time I get around to breakfast I'll make one of these. Meanwhile, bookmarked and rated up.
