Garden Egg Salad — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, November 23rd, 2015

Garden Egg SaladButtery mashed potatoes and gravy; rich, cheesy casseroles; creamy pumpkin pies … there’s no shortage of indulgences come the holidays, and we haven’t even entered Christmas cookie season yet. While these decadent dishes are called for at this time of year, it’s no surprise that you may be craving a bit of balance in your meals. That’s where this healthy recipe comes in.

Ready to eat in only 25 quick minutes, Food Network Kitchen’s Garden Egg Salad is a better-for-you take on traditionally heavy egg salad. By swapping in low-fat mayonnaise and mixing in fresh celery and crunchy radishes, this mustard-laced salad features all of the textures and flavors you crave, but it’s not simply made lighter. Bonus: Opt for romaine lettuce leaves instead of the traditional bread when serving up this fuss-free lunch.

Speedy Baked Eggs with Salsa Verde — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, November 2nd, 2015

Baked Eggs with Salsa VerdeWhile eggs are likely part of your weekend brunch routine, there’s no reason these protein-packed beauties can’t make an appearance at during the week — at any time of day. They cook up in mere minutes and are hearty enough to keep you feeling full, which is why they’re often called upon to beef up meatless meals.

In Food Network Kitchen’s 25-minute recipe for Baked Eggs with Salsa Verde (pictured above), eggs are the centerpiece of the dish, which is a top-rated fan favorite. Think of this fuss-free meal as eggs in purgatory gone green; while the traditional dish features eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce, this version lets a tomatillo-based salsa verde act as the sauce. Studded with garlic and jalapeno, this simple homemade sauce is blended until smooth, but the chefs in Food Network Kitchen advise, “If pressed for time, use a mild store-bought salsa, either red or green.” Once the eggs have cooked in the salsa, blanket them with Monterey Jack cheese for a gooey finish, and sprinkle with fragrant cilantro before serving.

Celebrate National Deviled Egg Day with These Egg-cellent Ideas

by in Recipes, November 2nd, 2015

Celebrate National Deviled Egg Day with These Eggscellent IdeasNo, the calendar hasn’t fast-forwarded to spring. Today, Nov. 2, is indeed National Deviled Egg Day, and while deviled eggs often take on a shining role come Easter, they’re also a go-to appetizer for that other holiday just around the corner: Thanksgiving.

Since they’re hearty and comforting, deviled eggs will surely please your hangry turkey day guests when they arrive, but they’re not so large that partygoers will fill up before the feast. No matter if you opt for the tried-and-true classic recipe or decide to dress up the traditional deviled egg, you’ll be able to do much of the prep for this starter ahead of time, which means you’ll have one less thing to focus on as mealtime inches closer.

Check out some of our favorite ideas below for egg-cellent deviled egg inspiration. Read more

Cheesy Scrambled Egg Fajitas — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, September 14th, 2015

Cheesy Scrambled Egg FajitasMuch like a pizza crust, a tortilla is a blank culinary canvas; there are hardly any rules for what you can and can’t stuff inside it or pile on top of it. While some of the most-classic approaches are the fan-favorite taco or fajita, how you put those together is up to you. When it comes to making meatless fajitas, beans are surely a go-to pick, but when you want to try something new, look to eggs to bulk up the meal.

Ready to eat in only 30 quick minutes, Food Network Magazine’s Cheesy Scrambled Egg Fajitas (pictured above) make for a hearty breakfast as well as a quick-fix dinner. Just like traditional fajitas, these feature tender sauteed peppers and onions, plus buttery scrambled eggs, which add welcome heft. Don’t forget to add a decadent bite with Monterey Jack or pepper Jack cheese as the eggs finish cooking — it will slowly melt within minutes. Fill warm tortillas with the fluffy eggs, plus the colorful veggies, then top with a quick-fix combination of creamy avocado, juicy tomatoes and a jalapeno for subtle heat.

One Recipe, Two Meals: Cheesy Breakfast Sandwich Edition (for You and for the Kids)

by in Family, Recipes, September 10th, 2015

One Recipe, Two Meals: Cheesy Breakfast Sandwich Edition (for You and for the Kids)I’m totally the type of person who goes to bed excited about her morning coffee and breakfast. I’m sure this psychotic enthusiasm warrants some sort of therapy, but whatever. Mornings are my FAVORITE. The air is still. The streets are calm. My baby gremlins have yet to emerge from their caves.

Aside from the coffee buzz I satisfactorily achieve by 6:20 a.m., I can almost guarantee that my breakfasts are better than yours. Don’t be mad! But it’s true.

And I’m not exaggerating when I say I eat this exact breakfast sandwich nearly every. Single. Morning. I may switch out the spinach for kale, the red onions for sliced mushrooms, the sun-dried tomatoes for fresh garden Romas, but the principle is the same: runny yolks, melty cheese, all in my face.

And I’ve made a painfully simple version for your kids. We take out the fancy-pants adult toppings, and simply scramble up some fluffy eggs, place them on a toasted English muffin and top them with a mountain of cheddar.

Scrambled Egg Subs — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, April 27th, 2015

Scrambled Egg SubsWhile breakfast for dinner may be part of the usual suppertime routine in many homes, you most likely look to a standard stack of pancakes or a platter of eggs and bacon to get the job done. But the options for morning meals at dinner indeed go beyond the traditional. Think Food Network Kitchen’s cinnamon-scented Coconut-Almond French Toast Casserole, Food Network Magazine’s Mushroom-Spinach Baked Eggs laced with nutty Gruyère cheese, or the Scrambled Egg Subs (pictured above) from Food Network Magazine.

Instead of featuring scrambled eggs alongside toast, this quick-fix recipe has them stuffed inside buttered hot dog buns for a heartier dish. The secret to turning out soft, fluffy scrambled eggs — and not tough, dry ones — is to not overcook the eggs. Here the eggs come together over medium heat, so they’re not scorched right away, and only when they’ve begun to set is it time to add the fresh herbs and melty cheese, like Havarti or Muenster, for over-the-top gooeyness. A handful of fresh scallions in the eggs promises a subtle, welcome bite, while a cool side salad of radishes and celery rounds out the fuss-free meal in a hurry.

Game-Changing Egg-in-a-Hole Ideas

by in Food Network Magazine, March 26th, 2015

egg-in-a-hole doughnut

Call it egg in a basket, toad in a hole, egg in a frame or one-eyed jack; an egg fried in a hole of toast is nothing new, but it’s still amazing. You’ll be met with smiles round the table each time you serve the sunny-side up breakfast treat — bonus points if it’s a weekday. Whether it’s because the bread gets extra buttery in the skillet or because there’s almost always a debate over what to call it, the simple trick makes regular ol’ eggs and toast so much more fun. But why confine your runny yolk to sandwich bread? What’s stopping you from cracking an egg into the center of a fluffy, glazed doughnut?

Food Network Magazine’s dozen new ideas for eggs in holes are groundbreaking. You already know putting a fried egg on top of almost everything instantly amps up the craveability factor. The same theory applies to eggs’ nests: pizza, doughnuts, grilled cheese sandwiches, you name it. Pick your nest and put an egg in it.

Croque Madame Sandwich — Most Popular Pin of the Week

by in Community, March 15th, 2015

Croque Madame SandwichWhen it comes to finishing touches on a plate, there’s not much that doesn’t benefit from an egg on top, including this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Without an egg, France’s version of a specialty ham-and-cheese sandwich is a simple croquet monsieur, but when dressed up with golden, runny egg, this richly indulgent sandwich layered with indulgent, creamy bechamel sauce becomes an over-the-top beauty called a croque madame. Follow Alex Guarnaschelli’s lead and opt for Gruyère cheese to add a rich, nutty taste to the sandwich.
