Eggs are one of the most versatile and nourishing foods that most people have in their kitchen. They are also incredibly inexpensive. New studies have shown that not only are eggs lower in cholesterol than was previously believed but they are also higher in vitamin D. Eggs are a great source of protein and if you are staying away from red meats then eggs are a good option.
Eggs are a traditional breakfast food and are often enjoyed fried, scrambled, poached and boiled. When you are having a bad day and need something quick, easy and delicious for dinner, eggs are a good option and can obviously be eaten in any of the ways that you would normally for breakfast. If however you want to ramp it up a notch for dinner there are several ways that you can do this.
Omelets are a great dinner option. They can be served with just about any filling that you have available. Cheese is always a good choice and all you need is one that melts easily to have a perfect omelet. Cheddar, American, even cream cheese will all work well with some added fresh vegetables. If you have asparagus, this is a delicious omelet and if you can whip up a Hollandaise sauce you have a dinner that will turn heads. Grill the asparagus, make the Hollandaise and then get the omelet pan heating. With this combination, cheese will definitely be optional.
You can however use just about any veggies, pepper, onions, broccoli or tomatoes.
A frittata is an omelet that is not rolled. It is poured into the pan and then the additional ingredients are put in but not the cheese, yet. This is a great way to get rid of leftovers and little bits of this and that. You cook it slowly on top of the stove until it is almost cooked then place some grated cheese on top and place it under the broiler on your oven to melt the cheese. With a frittata you can add meat as well. Pepperoni is great, sausage and ground beef are all tasty additions.
A souffle is a sophisticated egg dish that is not particularly easy and can actually be quite difficult but all the effort is worth it if you get to take an amazing souffle out of the oven. A souffle is made with eggs, cheese, milk, cheese, butter, cheese and a little flour. It is the ultimate in comfort food and light and delicious at the same time.
So if you are in the mood for eggs for dinner, you can just fry or scramble up a couple but if you want something a little more special, consider one of these other options.
