Interesting meals based around eggs?

fbf242 | | Jan 14, 2010 01:16 PM

Eggs have long been my protein go-to for inexpensive meals-for-one. My old standard was a frittata with whatever veggies I had around, but recently I've been really into adding egg to soup. I've been making a totally inauthentic, pan-Asian "egg drop soup" with miso, garlic, ginger, whatever greens I have, mushrooms, and an egg scrambled in at the end, and I'm also fan of Italian "stracciatella" soup, where an egg beaten with parmesan is mixed into the broth. Recently a friend was raving about shaksuka, an Israeli dish where eggs are poached in tomato sauce, and I'm really excited to try that. I've also been inspired by recent posts about egg foo yung.

What is your favorite way to use eggs besides for scrambled eggs, omelets, frittatas, etc?
