Well, it's time to look at what accompanies the egg. You can't always eat it on an English muffin or toast. That can get pretty stale after a while (pun intended). Why not get innovative and figure out new ways to serve up eggs—ones in their own edible containers?
#1. Egg in the Hole
This dish always makes people smile. Here's a classic take on it:
There's also this adorable version, for someone you love:
If you really want to go the extra mile, you can use heart-shaped silicone molds to make this egg-and-bacon version:
Want to serve your eggs for breakfast or dinner? Then go the more sophisticated route and put them in a dish of polenta:
This version with fontina cheese is fit for royalty:
#3. Put 'Em in a Tomato
But if you're looking for a more portable, on-the-go egg, you should try cooking them in a roast tomato:
Even if they're hard-boiled eggs:
#4. Why Not Tomato Sauce?
You could also enjoy a favorite breakfast from the Middle East and North Africa, shakshuka, and cook your eggs in a bubbling skillet of spicy tomato sauce, greens, cheese, and chilis:
#5. Or a Potato
But if you need to rush out the door, an edible container, like a potato, is probably your best bet:
#6. Try a Sweet Potato
If you're really trying to eat nutrient-dense foods, you can swap out that russet potato for a sweet potato:
#7. Go for the Gusto: Cook an Egg in an Avocado
Then again, an avocado is both healthy and colorful:
#8. Or a Bell Pepper
But if you really want to go for color, bell peppers can't be beat:
#8. Or an Onion
If you're not a fan of peppers, onions may be more your style:
#10. Even Mushrooms Work
If the mushroom is big enough to fit the egg, it'll work:
#11. Give It a Fruity Taste
If you want a more citrusy taste, try an orange on for size:
#12. Cut to the Chase & Cook Eggs Wrapped in Bacon
I mean, who are we kidding here? This is really the best of both worlds:
#13. Ham It Up
You can always pay tribute to Dr. Seuss and make green eggs and ham cups:
