EASY EGG DISHES

A few things 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. To test an egg for freshness, put it in the bottom of a bowl of water. Fresh eggs rest on their sides, while questionable eggs float. Eggs are featured in a wide variety of sophisticated fare, but even an inexperienced cook can master these 10 simple dishes with ease — perfect for serving at breakfast or any time of the day.
