Easy Egg Dishes
Soft or hard, fried or baked, poached or scrambled, eggs are perfect for serving at breakfast or any time of the day, which makes them a perfect keep-it-interesting ingredient option when we're all doing more cooking at home. They're one of the least expensive and most versatile sources of animal protein, with a dozen sometimes priced as low as $1 on sale. A few good tips to keep in mind when cooking eggs: Cast-iron cookware can react chemically with egg whites, turning eggs a harmless — but unappetizing — green. If possible, use nonstick cookware instead. The best way to test an egg for freshness is to put it in the bottom of a bowl of water. Fresh eggs rest on their sides, while questionable eggs float. Egg products are featured in a wide variety of sophisticated fare, but even an inexperienced cook can master the simple recipes here with ease.
