I received compensation from the Egg Nutrition Center for creating this recipe and post. All opinions are my own.
When you’re having “one of those days” and you’re at a loss for what to serve your family for dinner, turn to eggs. Yup. Eggs for Dinner can be the answer to your meal planning woes. Eggs cook up quickly and easily, and they’re affordable and nutritious with 6 grams of protein in every large egg and 13 essential nutrients, including choline and vitamin D.
When you open a carton of eggs and crack a few open, a world of delicious dinner creations awaits you. Pancakes, omelets, and a plate piled high with scrambled eggs are just a few of the possibilities, but when eggs are the star ingredient in your dinner rotation, other options like frittatas, shakshuka (a Middle Eastern egg dish), hash, quiche, tacos, salads, and Buddha bowls can make their way to your family’s table.
I’m part of the Egg Nutrition Center’s Egg Enthusiast program, and clearly there are lots of other enthusiasts like me out there. I recently asked my fellow dietitian food bloggers to share their favorite eggs-for-dinner recipes, and together, we came up with these 28! The recipe roundup began with my Scrambled Egg Tacos with Cilantro Lime Drizzle recipe and quickly took off from there.
