Did we ever figure out which came first, the chicken or the egg? It seems to be a question that will remain unknown for all of eternity. We also still have yet to figure out why eggs, no matter the style, are so damn good on just about everything.

Eggs are the perfect entrée or supplement to any meal at any time of the day. They’re a healthy choice because they are low calorie and are packed full of proteins, which help to keep you fuller for longer. They’re cheap and come in bulk, making them affordable for anyone. They even promote eye health. You also have the option, of course, to shop for organic, all-natural or farm raised eggs.

Here are some egg recipes using them every way possible–some new, some old. Others include twists on classics, and others are simply bizarre. Enjoy!
