Ham and Gruyère Quiche

Whether you choose to make it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, this cheesy quiche is sure to turn into a family favorite. Our test kitchen chefs use a savory mixture of diced smoked ham, shredded gruyère and thinly sliced mushrooms to give it an ample amount of differing textures and flavors, though we also love the idea of throwing in a handful of frozen tater tots or crumbled up bacon. If you decide to make it for breakfast, feel free to replace the mesclun greens on the side with a fresh fruit salad, like this one from Ree Drummond.

Hash Brown Cups

There’s a reason hash browns and scrambled eggs always seem to be served together — they’re just meant to be eaten at the same time! You’ll be able to do just that with these one-of-a-kind hash brown cups. Making them is actually pretty easy — all you need to do is toss shredded potatoes with melted butter and press the mixture into the wells of a mini muffin pan until they form a cup-shape. Once they’re adequately baked, you simply fill your cups with scrambled eggs and dig in! Kids can even help you form the hash brown cups, if they happen to be “schooling from home” that morning.

Western Hash Brown Omelet

Omelets are a breakfast and brunch staple, and this western-styled one is filled with everything you need to enjoy a diner-quality one right at your very own kitchen table. It’s filled with a hearty mixture of diced red and green bell peppers, thickly sliced deli ham, grated smoked gouda cheese and fresh scallions, and features a thick outer crust made from crispy, crunchy frozen hash browns. Be sure to keep your hash browns frozen — thawing them will prevent you from getting that golden brown exterior!

Rolled Omelet with Nori

Eggs shouldn’t be eaten in only one way; the same is totally true about omelets. In fact, the more ways you eat them, the better! For this recipe, Food Network Magazine drew inspiration from Japanese tamagoyaki, which is made by rolling together several layers of fried eggs. To give yours a unique swirled interior like the one pictured above, follow our test kitchen’s lead and add a sheet of dried seaweed on top of your egg mixture while it’s cooking.

You can use fresh or ground turmeric to make it.

Sourdough Strata with Tomatoes and Greens

If mornings in your house tend to be on the hectic side (we’re right there with you!), this make-ahead sourdough strata is a must-try. Not only can you roast the tomatoes ahead of time, but you can also put together the egg and bread portion of the casserole in advance too, since it needs to sit in the refrigerator overnight. Just pop it in the oven while everyone’s getting dressed for school and you’re good to go!

Creamy Baked Eggs with Pesto

Baked eggs are totally underrated, and we believe they deserve a lot more love and attention. If you’ve never had them before, give this simple pesto-topped version a try. To make it, all you need to do is add heavy cream, two eggs, some butter and a little grated Parmesan cheese to the bottom of a shallow dish. Placing your shallow dish into a larger dish that’s been filled with hot water is key — this will help your egg whites get set adequately, while keeping the yolks nice and runny. Be sure to snap a photo for your grid before you take your first bite!

Loaded Egg Sandwich

It took our test kitchen chefs quite a bit of time to agree on what makes the ultimate egg sandwich. Some said it had to have one fried egg in it, others two. And don’t even get us started on cheese! Eventually, they settled on this towering recipe, and we have to admit, we think they did a really cracking job! This colossal sando is loaded up with 2 slices of bacon, 2 slices of cheddar cheese, 1 extra-large fried egg, sliced avocado and 1/2 a cup of waffle fries to give you a breakfast that’ll have you feeling anything but hungry afterwards. Did we mention the entire thing is housed in a brioche bun?!

Who says you can’t have a burger for breakfast, especially when it’s topped with bubbly cheddar cheese and a runny fried egg like this one is!?! To make it for your household, simply place a cooked sausage patty on a toasted hamburger bun bottom, and top it with cheddar cheese and a fried egg. To finish the burger off, season it with salt, pepper and hot sauce, add the other half of the bun to the top and take a bite!

Bacon and Egg Toasts with Blue Cheese

If your normal breakfast routine usually includes a piece of toast, you need to try this Bacon and Egg version ASAP.

It’s just like a Croque Madame, but deconstructed!

Looking for another way to jazz up your slice of toasted bread?! This Smoked Salmon Toast with Jammy Eggs recipe will definitely give your tastebuds something to remember. We’ve opted for pumpernickel bread in this dish, though whole wheat and rye work just as nicely. For toppings, a hearty combo of cream cheese, Dijon mustard and horseradish form the base layer, while slices of smoked salmon, capers, parsley, scallops and glistening soft-boiled eggs finish the toast off. It’s a bright and refreshing way to start your morning on a high note.

Corn on the cob is great and all, but the fan-favorite summer side is just as tasty off the cob too! This flavorful corn frittata is a perfect example of that.

Puff Pastry Breakfast Pizzas

It’s no surprise to us that runny eggs continue to be a favorite amougst our fans.

Bacon-and-Egg Biscuit

When it comes to popular food combinations, bacon, egg and cheese might be even more iconic than peanut butter and jelly or cookies and creme.

Olive Oil-Fried Egg

Olive oil is a pantry staple, but there’s more to it than quickly dressing a salad or drizzling it over pasta. For this creative dish, olive oil is used to quickly infuse the yolk of an otherwise basic fried egg with a slightly fruity and peppery taste. Don’t be scared when adding your egg to the heated oil — the whites will immediately begin to bubble, which is a good thing. When serving, follow our lead and opt for grilled bread over toast — the slight char adds a bold contrast to the spiciness of the seasoned egg whites and the runniness of the yolk.

Sheet Pan Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros is made even easier with this sheet pan-based recipe. Unlike the traditional version, which is often served on top of crispy fried corn tortillas, our test kitchen chefs cut the tortillas into wedges and bake them in the oven for a “homemade chip” kind of feel. The rest of the recipe is pretty straightforward — alongside a chunky salsa made from ancho chile and jalapeno peppers, scallions, tomato sauce and chili beans, you’ll also top the dish with 12 egg yolks, chopped avocado and crumbled Cotija cheese.

Of all the Instagram-worthy dishes to have gained popularity in recent years, Shakshuka continues to be one of our all-time favorites. The hearty dish, which hails from North Africa and the Middle East originally, can be transformed into a delicious array of variations, but it’s the classic tomato sauce and egg-based version we like best of all. When making it yourself, be sure to use a rubber spatula to break up the whites of your eggs after cracking them directly into your sauce mixture — doing so will allow them to cook even faster.
