Eggs are SO nutritious, eating more of them is a good thing–but if we don't mix it up, they can get old quickly! Here are my top 5 favorite recipes for eggs.

#5 - Crustless Quiche

Crustless quiche is essentially a way to bake eggs. Typically you add a bit of cream to enhance the deliciousness factor. If you can’t tolerate dairy, just omit this from the recipe.

You can keep it simple or add combinations of herbs, cheese, and veggies based on what's available and even in season.

#4 - Soft scrambled

I love the creaminess of soft-served scrambled eggs. But if you like yours more well done, be my guest. Some people add a bit of milk or cream to enhance the deliciousness factor. If you can’t tolerate dairy, just omit this from the recipe.

You can keep it simple or add combinations of herbs and/or cheese if you prefer.

#3 - Fisherman's Egg Scramble

I know, I know...adding sardines to eggs might seem like a way to ruin them for most people, but I LOVE it topped with salsa, sour cream, hot sauce, avocado, and/or whatever else I conjure up from the fridge.

Check out the recipe here.

#2 - Ham & Cheese Omelette

I like to fry up my ham and cheese in the pan and then add my eggs on top so that I get a nice brown on the ham and crispy, chewy bits on the cheese.

#1 - Caramelized Cream Eggs

And coming in as my personal favorite, yes, caramelized cream eggs. I'm seriously not making this up. You can cook eggs in cream and if you follow the recipe and time it right...the cream will caramelize. Seriously. It's decadent. And grass-fed cream (if you can tolerate dairy) has healthy fatty acids and even contains the active form of vitamin A: retinol.
