25 Easy Eggs for Dinner Recipes
Put this farm-fresh staple to work long past breakfast, and set the table for dinners by the dozen.
Sure, we love them with bacon and cheese on a bagel, beaten into an omelet packed with vegetables, or served sunny side up with buttered toast, but you can absolutely enjoy eggs after breakfast. Here, we're sharing 25 of our favorite easy egg recipes for dinner, starting with the Steak and Egg Skillet Pizza you see right here. Inspired by the steak and egg dinner at a classic steakhouse, this one-hour pizza is cooked in a cast-iron skillet. Pizza dough is topped with a combination of white cheddar cheese and feta cheese, plus ground beef and eggs. The result is a crispy, super-savory dinner that balances fatty meat with creamy eggs and sharp cheese.
Eggs also add decadence to pasta recipes. Of course, eggs and egg yolks are an essential ingredient in spaghetti carbonara, which is made with bacon or guanciale and Parmesan cheese. It's a simple Roman dish with big flavor. But if you want something a little more unexpected, we've also paired soft-boiled eggs with store-bought gnocchi and peas for a quick weeknight dinner recipe.
If you're looking for a meal that's a bit lighter, we have several protein- and vegetable-packed salad recipes that are topped with chopped hard- or soft-boiled eggs. The protein from the eggs will help you to feel fuller for longer, which makes these salad recipes a perfect main course for dinner. Our vegetarian version of a classic cobb salad swaps tofu in place of the usual bacon for a hearty meal that will serve four.
