Oh, I know. You don’t even have to tell me — I know you’re impressed with my pun.
Here’s the thing: I was planning to share with you today a really delicious egg-based recipe — that is to say, a frittata — and I totally botched it. A FRITTATA. It was going to be all yummy and pretty and full of arugula and prosciutto and sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese, oh so much lovely goat cheese, but then I had to go and ruin it with a ever-so-slightly lengthy run under the broiler. It was yummy, yes, but so not pretty. So. Not. Pretty. And I just couldn’t bring myself to share it with you. So I ate it all to hide the evidence.
Instead, let’s take a gander at some yummy AND pretty egg-based recipes that you can make this weekend for Easter brunch, or for breakfast any day, or for brinner, which is becoming my new obsession for dinner these days. Can’t stop/won’t stop.
First up: Mom’s egg salad. It’s simple and quick and easy and I dare you to not eat all the servings in one sitting. So far I haven’t won this dare.
This caramelized shallot and mushroom quiche is a creamy, cheesy dream enveloped in a flaky, buttery hug of a pie crust. So good.
Bacon, kale and roasted tomato eggs benedict might be healthier for you than regular eggs benny, but I promise the flavor is all there. Plus, hiiiii bacon.
Can we all take a midweek breather and eat this cheesy southwest black bean egg bake together with extra-large mugs of coffee? I say YES.
Or, maybe this phyllo egg brunch casserole? How about both? I’m glad you agree.
Tell you what: I’ll make these apple, bacon and cheddar mini breakfast pies, too, while we’re at it, if you bring the coffee. Pay no nevermind if a few of the pies are missing by the time you get here. I know nothing.
Orrrrrr, you can make these creamy deviled eggs with red onions, capers and dill and be a hero amongst family and friends.
This slow cooker cheesy pesto and spinach egg casserole is ready for your face.
Need a couple last-minute Easter egg decorating ideas? Hey, I have those for you, too:
These crackled eggs‘ fanciful Easter decor game is ON POINT.
Glitter eggs, tea-stained eggs and dip-dyed eggs: There’s an egg-citing tutorial for each! Oh, dear. I’ll stop there.
Happy egg baking/cooking/decorating, friends!
