Much 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.

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.

While 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.

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.

When 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.

You can, and should, put eggs on pizza. Make a brunch-style pizza with bacon and cheese — this recipe is super-easy; it’s made with store-bought flatbread — or fry up an egg and slide it onto a slice of reheated leftover pizza. Think of it as an open-faced pizza breakfast sandwich.

To refrigerate or not to refrigerate — that is the question about eggs that several media outlets have been scrambling to answer in recent days.
The recent ovo-interest appears to have been whisked up by a Business Insider article in which writer Dina Spector wondered why we refrigerate eggs here in the United States while people in Europe and the U.K. are weirdly chill about chilling eggs, generally leaving them on the counter with the non-perishable foods. “Why doesn’t anyone in the U.K. freak out over eggs sitting in room temperatures for days on end?” she demanded to know.
It turns out that the different approaches to refrigeration here and abroad stem from differences in the way eggs are treated to prevent salmonella poisoning during farming and processing.
Whether you maintain a meatless diet just one day a week or adhere to a vegetarian lifestyle, eggs are surely a welcome addition to your meat-free menu, as they’re versatile, packed with protein and, perhaps best of all, quick to prepare. Because there are multiple ways to cook eggs, you can incorporate them into nearly any meal — even lunch and dinner. The next time you make fried rice, try serving sunny-side up eggs atop the dish to add substance, or bake eggs in tomato sauce for a rustic Italian supper.
Food Network Kitchen sticks with a scrambled centerpiece in its fuss-free recipe for Scrambled Eggs with Ricotta and Broccolini (pictured above). While this 20-minute meal is a cinch to prepare, it’s a dressed-up version of the everyday scrambles you likely ate as a child; instead of calling for American cheese, this recipe incorporates rich ricotta to create a creamy taste, and it swaps in vibrant Broccolini in place of traditional peppers and onions. It’s important to stop cooking the eggs once they’re set to yield tender, fluffy results every time. Finish the eggs with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, and serve with bread to round out the meal.
