I need egg recipes

We have so many eggs, and my children are getting tired of scrambled and boiled eggs.  I don't like frying eggs, personally.

Does anyone have a unique, possibly spicy, egg salad recipe?

What about a frittata recipe that doesn't include cottage cheese?  (Just because I rarely have cottage cheese.)

Any other egg recipes that are family favorites?

Thanks!

  2. How about Egg Foo Yung? We haven't actually attempted it yet, but there are lots of recipes on the internet.

  3. I read somewhere that you can take sausage, shredded hashbrowns and place them in a muffin tin. Then you break an egg into each tin and cook in a 350 degree oven until the eggs are set. I have been wanting to try it, just have not done it yet.

    They are easily freezable from this point.

  5. Waffles take a LOT of eggs to make - make in big batches and freeze them. You can also freeze eggs for when those chickens are molting - freeze in ice cube trays then pop into a container :)

  6. How about breakfast burritos, any time of day? We just put them together at the table, but a friend of mine rolls them up with some refried beans, bacon or sausage or chorizo, salsa and sour cream (and olives and onions and cheese and whatnot) and bakes them in a 9x13 pan for about 20 minutes.

    And as for a frittata, I'm not sure you'll like this idea, but my kids do occasionally -- a Top Ramen frittata. http://busycooks.about.com/od/pastaskilletrecipes/r/ramenfrittata.htm

  7. Egg Salad:
    Simple and easy. Boil eggs, Let eggs cool then peel. In a bowl add peeled eggs ( you can slice them in half), mayo, Yellow mustard, dash of apple cider vinegar, salt and black pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients well. Eat on your favorite slice of bread.

    Deviled Eggs:
    Boil eggs, Cool eggs and Peel, Slice eggs in half (long ways) place the whites on a plate and add the yellow centers to a bowl. Add mayo, yellow mustard, tad of apple cider vinegar, salt , black pepper and sweet relish to the bowl of yellow egg centers. Mix well. Add mixture to the center of egg whites. Top with a sprinkle of paprika to each egg.

    Scrambled Salmon:
    1 can of pink salmon, 2 eggs, tad of butter/margarine, salt and black pepper to taste.
    In a sauce pan add can of de-boned salmon ( I include the juice from can it keeps it moist) and a tab (1-2 tablespoons of butter), let butter melt and the salmons get warmed then add two eggs , salt and pepper. Stir until eggs have scrambled in mixture.
    We eat this either on a sandwich or my favorite way is along with country gravy and biscuits.

  8. Just thought of one more recipe our family likes.
    I call it Spanish Eggs
    In a fry pan add a tad of butter/margarine or cooking spray. Add diced onions ,green pepper, and your favorite breakfast meat...sasuage or bacon ( I have even used sliced hot dogs). When onions ,peppers and meat are almost done add your eggs to this and scramble.
    We eat this along with toast. You can put it on a flour tortilla (I have even added a little salsa) add some shredded cheese and roll it up.
    YUMMMY!

  10. I make both egg salad and deviled eggs with horseradish to make it more spicey. You could also use cayenne pepper if you wanted, in addition or instead.

    There is also a really good egg/salsa/cheese casserole that I will look for the recipe to post. It may take me a day or two because we just got back into town last night after a week in Oklahoma. The recipe is an oven recipe, but you might be able to figure out how to convert it to crockpot for summer!
