100+ Egg Recipes for Breakfast, Brunch, and Dinner 11

Nest box overflowing? Here are more than 100 ways to use them up. #localbite

Springtime generally means an uptick in fresh egg production for those of us who have laying hens. My girls are no exception, and we count on eggs as one of our local food standbys. And that is wonderful, except for one teeny, tiny issue: It’s really easy to get tired of eggs. (Scrambled, hard boiled, fried, repeat.) We needed some new egg recipes!

I asked a bunch of blogging friends to share their favorite egg recipes with me to break up the monotony  find new ways to use up our abundance. If you’re lucky enough to have a steady source of fresh eggs, I’m sure you’ll find at least one recipe here you’d like to try.

While our eggs come right from the backyard, some of the ingredients called for in these recipes—olive oil, coconut flour, maple syrup, ghee—are hard for most of us to source locally. Let me let you in on a little money-saving secret: Thrive Market. They have wholesome ingredients, at wholesale prices and all available online for folks living in the continental U.S.

Now. How about those egg recipes?

    Thank you for these recipe ideas. My 7 girls are laying 5-6 eggs a day. I am giving some away but really appreciate new ways to use eggs. Thank you as well for sharing my blog link to “Over 60 Egg-Cellent Egg Collection.”

    Hey Kris, I just learned something new with eggs. Fresh eggs are the absolute best for poaching. No need for vinegar in the water, or whisking a little whirlpool. The fresher the white, the more it naturally adheres to itself. I thought I was the worst egg poacher in the world, but it turns out I’m amazing at it with fresh eggs! I can even do more than one at a time, which is key when we are a family of 8. I use my 12 inch skillet. I cannot wait for tomato season to make a BLT with a poached egg on it (I didn’t see that one on your list). Oh the cravings!

    Great list, I do love a fresh egg and my kids help make sure I never get a huge glut at home. I wrote about my favourite way to eat farm fresh, totally organic eggs on my blog last week – and Im not going to lie, its with buttery hollandaise sauce and fresh asparagus.
