36 Best Ever Egg Recipes For Breakfast (2024)

If you’re looking for a delicious breakfast, egg breakfast recipes are the way to go! Eggs really have it all: they’re healthy, tasty and you can cook them a million different ways.

From soft-boiled eggs, to eggs benedict, to egg casserole to breakfast burrito (and let’s not forget French toast!), the options are endless.

For a home cook looking to up their breakfast game, easy recipes using eggs are a great way to get started.

Some of them require a level of skill (how to make the perfect omelette, for example), some are as simple as anything (try this fried egg on avo toast) , as we think the best egg recipes should be.

But aside from their versatility, why are we so fussed about eggs? Because they are just so darn healthy and a great way to get protein in as a vegetarian.

Eggs contain practically all the nutrients you need, and are also a source of those elusive vitamins, D & B12.

What’s more, an easy way to get even more out of your eggs is to buy omega 3 enriched eggs, then you’ll be getting important fatty acids as well. They are enriched naturally – the omega 3 comes from the chickens’ diet.

Eat eggs, get protein!

One of our crusades here at Hurry The Food Up is to provide you with vegetarian recipes that help you to get enough protein.

The best thing about eggs is that whole eggs contain around 6-8g protein each! This means that breakfast egg recipes are a great source of protein.

Some of these easy breakfast ideas contain up to 25g protein each, which is a solid chunk of the average RDA (45g for a woman, 55g for a man).

Ingredients

  • 2 radishes
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)
  • ½ red onion (finely diced)
  • 1 jalapeño (seeded and chopped)
  • ½ cup crushed tomatoes (canned)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup black beans (canned)
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • ½ ripe avocado (sliced and seasoned with salt, pepper and lemon juice)
  • 1 sprig cilantro/coriander, fresh

Instructions

  • Make the quick radish pickle: Finely slice the radish and place into a small bowl.
    2 radishes
  • In a small pan, heat the white vinegar, sugar and salt.
    ¼ cup white vinegar, 1 tsp sugar, ½ tsp salt
  • Once the sugar and salt have dissolved and the vinegar begins to boil, pour the liquid into the sliced radish bowl and store in the fridge.
  • In a medium sized non-stick pan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and turn the heat to low. Sauté the onion until the pieces are soft.
    1 tsp olive oil, ½ red onion
  • Add the chopped garlic and half the chopped jalapeño and continue cooking until the edges of veggies begin to brown.
    1 clove garlic, 1 jalapeño
  • Add the crushed tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste, mix and cook for about one minute. If it feels slightly dry, add a tablespoon of water.
    Salt and pepper to taste, ½ cup crushed tomatoes
  • Crack the eggs into the sauce and cook at low heat until the whites are cooked. If necessary, cover the pan with a lid for about a minute to cook the egg whites completely. However, avoid over-cooking the egg yolk – make sure it remains runny. Season the eggs with salt and pepper.
    2 large eggs
  • Heat the corn tortillas and black beans.
    2 corn tortillas, ½ cup black beans
  • Immediately serve the eggs with the tomato sauce on top of the tortillas with a side of black beans, sliced avocado and radish pickles.
    ½ ripe avocado
  • Sprinkle the remaining chopped jalapeño, cilantro leaves and enjoy.
    1 sprig cilantro/coriander, fresh
