Eggs are a great way to eat more protein (with 11 grams of protein for 2 scrambled eggs). Costing just $3-7 per dozen, one dozen eggs can make multiple meals, feeding a family for days.

I love easy egg recipes and rotate them often in our meal plan: egg casserole, make-ahead omelet cups, feta spinach omelette, ham and cheese omelette, eggs in a basket, and sunny side up / fried eggs. So many ways to use classic eggs to make a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

But the king of all recipes is scrambled eggs!

Scrambled eggs are, in my opinion, the perfect way to make a quick meal for yourself or an entire family. Pair the eggs with a side dish or use the eggs to make a main meal (like a sandwich or tacos).

Scrambled eggs on toast with arugula and tomatoes.
One of my favorite ways to eat eggs: topped on toast with arugula, avocado, radishes, and/or sliced tomatoes.

1. With Toast

Toast and eggs are a classic. I love sourdough toast. Serve a slice of buttery toast (or top with strawberry jam) as a side dish. Or make an open-faced toast sandwich: top a slice of toast with 2 scrambled eggs. Then top with arugula, chopped green onions, shredded cheese, hot sauce, or sliced radishes.

2. With Avocado Toast

Top a slice of toast with mashed avocado and a squeeze of lemon juice and salt. Add an egg scramble on top for an open-faced avocado toast sandwich (similar to this) or enjoy the avocado toast as a side dish. A sweet alternative to avocado toast is to serve the eggs on the side of peanut butter banana toast.

Toast 2 slices of bread (or a brioche bun) and cook bacon in the oven. Add 2 scrambled eggs and bacon to a slice of bread (and avocado slices, soft goat cheese, sliced tomato, and/or arugula if desired), top with the second bread slice. This is also an easy way to take breakfast on the go.

How to Cook the Best Fluffy Eggs

If you’re going to enjoy scrambled eggs often, like we do, check out my scrambled eggs tutorial with video. You’ll learn how to make the very best eggs that are fluffy and creamy. Here’s a summary…

  1. First thing, crack two raw eggs into a bowl. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Whisking the egg mixture vigorously.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter or ghee in a skillet, over medium heat.
  4. Reduce the stove-top to medium-low heat. High heat causes eggs to dry out quickly and results in rubbery, strongly-flavored eggs…YUCK!
  5. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet. Begin folding the eggs up and over with a heat-proof spatula (I prefer a silicone spatula).
