5 Healthy Egg Recipes To Get You Through The Busiest Days

baked-eggs-with-coconut-milk-and-cilantro (1)

Most days, I can look across the work station I share with Andy Baraghani and tell what kind of day he is having just by looking at his breakfast. If he’s wolfing down some plainscrambled eggs with a middle-distance stare, I give him some space. If those eggs are jammy and just set, mashed with feta and spooned onto toast with a handful of tarragon left over from this Leeks in Vinaigrette recipe, well, then I know we’re going to have a good day.

Eggs make our jobs as food editors possible. Fast to make, fast to eat, and endlessly riffable, they work with any leftovers we have on hand and even the tightest schedule. When we were testing Thanksgiving recipes for Bon Appétit‘s November issue—some of the craziest weeks of the year—these are the protein-filled egg breakfasts we relied on to keep us cooking—and tasting pie—all day long.

Jammy Eggs and Feta Flatbreads with Herbs

Because older eggs are easier to peel, this is one of those recipes when grocery store eggs outperform the ones from the farmers’ market.

Fried Brown Rice with Kale and Turmeric

The best fried rice is made with leftover rice. Ideally, chill it uncovered overnight, which lets it dry out a bit, leading to maximum crispiness.

Baked Eggs with Coconut Milk and Cilantro

Sure, you could use heavy cream instead of coconut milk for this baked eggs recipe, but then it wouldn’t be as healthyish.

Fried Egg Tacos with Chile Jam

Sambal oelek and chili-garlic sauce are similar except the latter has garlic in it. Glad we could help clear that up.

Breakfast Salad with Smoked Trout and Quinoa

Our perfect quinoa cooking method is to boil it in salted water until tender (12-15 minutes), then drain and return to the pot. Let steam, covered, for a few minutes and fluff.
