Eggs in nests, soups, vegetables... there's a whole world of yolky madness out there
If you're all about the yolk, you'll love this recipe. It involves whipping the eggs with chilli, bacon and parmesan cheese, leaving the sunny side intact. Delicious!
You like potatoes and you certainly like eggs (otherwise you probably wouldn't be reading this), so why haven't you done this before? This is just the beginning for you. Imagine the potential of fusing together eggs and potatoes. You could also scoop out the middle of a potato, mix it with soured cream, cheese and bacon and then crack an egg over the top.
Eggs in soup, you say? Well, there's no good reason why a poached egg can't delicately float in a sea of soup. The thrill of popping the poached yolk in liquid might be even more enjoyable than popping bubble wrap. This asparagus-based dish looks so hearty you could almost eat it without bread, but we recommend you do.
We don't speak Chinese, but we're translating this recipe to mean: "that glorious hinterland between scrambled egg, omelette and sandwich". Stuffed full of bacon and veggies and teamed with soy sauce, this is a real winner for lunch or a quick dinner.
If you're hosting an Italian-inspired dinner party and don't want the hassle of painstakingly sharing out equal pasta portions, this is your dish. Rustle up this recipe for all the joy of carbonara, minus the cream.
Things in nests aren't just for Easter, and this one is an absolute treat. The soybean paste goes perfectly with firm greens, almost like a bubble and squeak. And we think it will hugely benefit from being dipped in a spicy sauce.
Now you've had a few seconds to get to grips with the whole eggs-in-veg thing, consider cracking them over all sorts of dishes – like this delightful rainbow egg bake.
They're eggs, and they're purple! Because, as well as enjoying a beautfiul friendship with goat's cheese, beetroot has the amazing ability to dye other ingredients. This is a top choice for updating classic deviled eggs, too.
