Whether you eat them for breakfast or in a side dish, eggs are one of the most versatile kitchen ingredients. I’d personally give them the “team player” award because they help out with everything from salads to cookies and beyond.
And what ingredient can stand alone like an egg? I can’t think of many!
You probably don’t need to follow a recipe to find out what to do with those extra eggs in your fridge. But that isn’t going to stop me from sharing a few of my favorite egg recipes with you!
So if you’re looking to use up the rest of your carton, you’ll have to check out these Just Jill egg recipes here.
Egg Recipes To Make Anytime
Tell me. How many times do you have leftovers laying around that go unused? I’m even guilty of them going unnoticed in the back of my fridge…
Well, with this super easy quiche recipe, you can say goodbye to wasted leftovers for good.
All it takes is throwing the ingredients together over a frying pan before adding them to the recipe. Trust me, this Roasted Veggies and Ham Quiche recipe is worth a try.
For days when you don’t have ham or holiday leftovers on hand, I have this quiche recipe that’s delicious for any season.
If you’re familiar with the previous recipe, this one will be super simple. So simple you might make a few batches!
I think my favorite part about my Easy Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Quiche is the ooey-gooey blend of cheeses. I don’t like to give everything away beforehand, but I’m talking about a trifecta of parmesan, cheddar and mozzarella in one recipe.
Is your mouth watering as much as mine?
Clearly I’m a quiche fan! But that doesn’t mean my egg recipes are limited to warm recipes.
In fact, one of the ones I eat regularly is my Egg Salad recipe. The main reason? I have three delicious versions so I never get sick of it!
I wish I could choose a favorite. But between the spicy notes in the Sriracha Style, the hint of sweetness in the Gherkin Style, and the classic taste of the Cobb Style, it’s a difficult decision.
So, why not make all three! After all, they’re all pretty simple so preparing a week of these Egg Salad Recipes shouldn’t be a tough task.
Chili Cheese Egg Bake
You might be familiar with this one if you followed me since my QVC days, but this Chili Cheese Egg Bake is one of my most popular.
If you're looking for another egg recipe for breakfast, lunch or even dinner, this easy-to-make cheese bake has you covered. Made with regular household ingredients, it mixes classic with unique.
- Butter, for pan
- 10 eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Dash of salt
- 1/4 lb butter, melted and cooled
- 2 small cans green chilies, diced
- 1 pint cottage cheese
- 1 lb Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 13" x 9" pan. Beat the eggs in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer.
- Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture into the egg mixture—a little bit at a time—until all incorporated. Add the melted butter. (Make sure it's cool, otherwise you'll cook the eggs.) Add in the remaining ingredients.
- Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes, or until set and lightly browned. Allow the dish to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
I love to serve this with an assortment of sour cream, salsa, and guacamole. This also freezes well if you have leftovers.
It calls for a lot of eggs (10 of them!) so it’s not a dish to make with the last few sitting in your carton. But if you have a chance to stop by the store to buy a dozen, I promise you that the taste of this bake will make the trip worthwhile.
I adore the cheesy goodness of this recipe and the diced green chilis add a kick you won’t be able to resist. Not too spicy… but enough to make you go “wow!”
So the next time you’re in a pinch and don’t know what to make for dinner, turn to the versatile egg to help you with your meal.
