5 eggs recipes

that aren’t boring

Eggs are a life staple and essential. Practically like water. They’re a great source of protein, therefore are an important starting point to all things breakfast and beyond. And…what would brunch be without a scramble, omelette, frittata, quiche, fried egg on avocado toast, and yeah–you get the point.

Anyways, the possibilities in the world of eggs are truly endless. Don’t think you need to settle for a plain scramble or a simple omelet. Instead, delve into the world of shakshuka, garlicky frittatas, quinoa pesto bowls and more. Happy Eating 🙂
