We currently have leftover pancakes in the fridge from brunch over the weekend. Tonight's dinner? 1000% it will be pancakes and eggs, of course.
During the week I can admit that sometimes I throw in the towel when it comes to cooking dinner, which is why I love easy, flavorful egg recipes for dinner.
I like to know that I'm serving something that is filling and has some protein, without relying on processed food, and eggs easily check those boxes for me.
From the perfect scrambled eggs to breakfast sandwiches made every which way, there is no shortage of egg dishes that make an entirely satisfying dinner.
Here are 13 such delicious and filling options - my nominees for the very best egg recipes for dinner that I put forth for your culinary consideration.
Broccoli Cheddar Zoodle Bake Recipe
Think of this broccoli cheddar zoodle bake as a frittata or crustless quiche, only with more veggies and more flavor. This recipe uses a spiralizer to make noodles from zucchini then you throw in a bunch of other vegetables, and you've got a tasty, healthy meal! Kale, broccoli, a bit of cheddar cheese and egg whites ultimately create one insanely delicious dinner that also makes a great lunch.
Sweet Potato Burrito Bowl Recipe
Not your average egg dish by any stretch, these veggie and protein-packed sweet potato burrito bowls are unexpectedly tasty, easy to make, filling and delicious. A bed of sweet potato noodles is topped with a pair of perfectly poached eggs, chunks of avocado and the salsa of your choice for a dinner you can feel happy about serving and eating.
Cheesy Avocado Egg in a Hole Recipe
Our cheesy avocado egg in a hole recipe is ready in less than 30 minutes, making it a quick and easy weeknight dinner on those evenings when you're exhausted or busy chasing the kids all over. They're made with ham, cheese, avocado, and a perfectly runny egg, for a simple yet deliciously savory dinner that is super satisfying and filling.
Easy Migas Recipe
I love love love this easy migas recipe - it is one of my favorite egg recipes for dinner! Of course, I love anything Tex Mex so that applies to migas as well. Think soft and cheesy scrambled eggs loaded up with peppers, onions, and fried tortillas, which some prefer to serve with refried beans before topping with salsa or sour cream. I like mine with tomatoes, avocado and queso fresco!
Buffalo Chicken Hash Recipe
A mere 30 minutes and one pan are all you need to make this hash recipe for dinner any night of the week! A bed of sweet potato chunks and sliced red bell peppers is topped with flavorful sliced chicken sausage, eggs, cheese and hot sauce then sprinkled with crisp green onions. The flavor combination is out of this world and this egg recipe is both hearty and nutritious.
Toaster Oven Egg Bake Recipe
Tasty and filling, this high protein toaster oven egg bake is made with cottage cheese, eggs, and spicy pepper jack cheese. I love it for breakfast, of course, but it's another of my very favorite egg recipes for dinner. Served with a side of crisp, steamed green veggies you end up with an easy weeknight dinner that will leave you completed satisfied with little effort in the kitchen.
Cheesy Grits Recipe
Cheesy grits with eggs and spinach aren't just for breakfast anymore - take my word for it! Cooked until creamy and smothered in cheese, I love grits with a couple of runny eggs on top served for dinner in much the same way you might eat cheesy grits with plump grilled cheese on top. Fried eggs or poached eggs are equally as good here so make them the way you love them best!
