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. 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.
