Eggs are one of the most versatile foods to cook with. However, most egg dishes are typically served for breakfast. And while we’re never the type to turn down a stacked BEC (bacon, egg and cheese), we’re always looking for ways to enjoy these oval-shaped wonders outside of our usual morning hours. Ahead, 11 egg recipes to cook for lunch or dinner. You’re welcome.
11 Delicious Ways to Cook Eggs That Aren’t Just for Breakfast
2. Puff Pastry Tarts
OK, technically this recipe from the Happy Egg Co® is a BEC with a modern twist, but we couldn’t help including it. Flaky puff pastry, crispy bacon, cheddar cheese and Happy Egg Free Range Eggs come together for an elevated take on a classic. Fun fact: Happy Egg’s hens roam free on more than eight acres of pasture (yes, really) and produce eggs with the richest amber-orange yolks that look like they came from your local farmer’s market. Because Happy Egg hens are free range (not caged or cage-free), you can always expect to get a high-quality carton of farmer’s market–quality eggs. Now you can love the look of your dish and the story behind what’s on the plate.
