Eggs in Crumpets

I had never had a crumpet, before. That is, until Trader Joe’s lined the checkout aisle with them the day Price Harry and Meghan Markle were married, interspersing British flags among them to really capitalize on the moment. I thought, why not? It’d be easy to fry an egg into the middle of those. So…

10-Minute Shakshuka with Mina Sauce

Shakshuka is one of the most luxurious brunches you can make for yourself – slowly simmering the eggs in spicy tomato sauce, topping it with crumbled cheese or veggies, and dipping a piece of crusty bread in it as a reward for your time spent at the stove. While I typically cobble together a sauce…

Eggs on Eggplant Slices

This was EGGScellent. Sorry, had to. But really, after a bit of prep work (see: pre-salting eggplant the night before), the cooking part of this recipe is too easy. And the result is a delicious, super healthy meal. Why pre-salt the eggplant? By using salt to expel moisture from the eggplant before cooking, you prevent…

No-Flip Fried Eggs Method

I tried to like frying eggs over-easy. Except it wasn’t that easy, and I became lazy. So I regularly practice the lid method instead: letting the heat of a pan cook the bottom of an egg, and covering the pan to steam the top of the egg. It only takes a few minutes, and can…

New York-Inspired Bagel with Smoked Salmon

Moving to the East Coast has taught me something important: the only place to truly get a good bagel around here is in New York City. Also, that Washington, D.C. is a bagel desert.* So, I find myself longing for deli-style bagel sandwiches frequently, and after a recent girls trip that included a stop at…

Eggs on Pizza: 3 Easy Methods

I’ll admit it: I’ve gone out of my way to make pizza for breakfast an acceptable meal. And I am not ashamed. Sometimes, leftovers from a late-night pizza run are all you have in the fridge Sunday morning. Sometimes, you don’t want to spend more than 5 minutes prepping your weekend brunch, so you pull…

Baguette Slice Egg-in-a-Hole

Low on groceries and/or time, but have the end of a baguette lying around? That was me this week – so I experimented with this egg-in-a-hole variation. So simple, and so quick. The next time you have a baguette, try it, and tag me or send me a pic to be featured in the newly…

My Poached Eggs Method

I was taught how to poach by a friend in college – a method that doesn’t require a poacher tool, plastic bag, vinegar or swirl technique – and her way is how I’ve done it ever since.  Try it out and let me know how it goes – and tag me @meags_eggs if you post a…
