It’s the end of the long workday (or the start of an extra-long week) and we’re hungry. Like, “can’t-think-straight” hungry. Luckily, Food52 contributor EmilyC wants to do all the thinking for us. In Dinner’s Ready, her monthly column on weeknight wonders, she shares three simple, flavor-packed recipes that are connected by a single idea or ingredient. Stick with Emily, and you’ll have a good dinner on the table in no time. Today, Emily shows us how to make wholly creative dinners out of the incredible egg.
When I think of weeknight dinner superheroes, no food comes closer than eggs. They’re nutritious, filling, inexpensive, and versatile. They come to our rescue when we haven’t planned ahead. They can transform a side dish into a complete meal, be a meal themselves, or take even days-old leftovers to new heights. (The “put an egg on it” mantra has saved the day in my house about a gazillion-and-one times during the last year alone.)
