Like so many other millennials, I find every opportunity to eat breakfast for dinner. I mean, who doesn’t want a big 'ole plate of thick, fluffy pancakes stacked one on top of the other with maple syrup dripping down the top and sides? As the inspirational Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation once courageously stated: “Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?” Yes, Ms. Knope. I too wish for a world in which breakfast food was a staple of every meal. Now, the world may not be up to that challenge, but I most certainly am. With that, get the notes on your phone open because I guarantee you’re going to want to write down at least one of these 10 ways to eat eggs (yes, eggs) for dinner.

1. Scrambled Egg Tacos

Just look at this beautiful Continental-Mexican hybrid. I. Am. Shook. Top it off with some hot sauce and you’re all set to go. 

2. Baked Egg in an Avocado

So, as everyone probably already knows, avocados are the hipster fruit of this generation. Everyone’s tossing an avocado in their salad, pizza, burrito, blender, gym bag, cup holder, and heck for all I know they’re injecting it straight up with an IV (kids nowadays, am I right?). So here’s something to quench your avocado thirst

3. Grilled Cheese with Fried Egg

I’ve had quite a few grilled cheese sandwiches in my life, and might I say I have never seen one that is as simplistic yet genius as this one. The concept of putting an egg inside a cheese sandwich never occurred to me, but it really seems like such a casual thing to be done. I won’t keep you from it any longer, here’s the recipe.

4. Fried Egg and Ramen Noodles

Ahh, yes. We meet again Ramen noodles. This time not as a 2am study snack when nothing else is open and you have to cram 25 pages of notes into your head by 8:15 am for the final, but as a cheap dinner that’ll keep you full ‘till morning.

5. Veggie Frittata

Ever feel like you just want to wake up and take on the day as a savvy European that rides a bike to work on the cobblestone pavements with a bouquet of flowers in the front basket? I do too, but being from West Virginia, seeing traffic lights on the streets instead of farmland in Cleveland is a big enough deal for me. Anyway, this frittata reminds me of that Parisian lifestyle full of eloquence and taste.

6. Cheese and Egg Bread Bowl

You know all those times you’ve gone to Panera Bread and you want to pay a little extra to have your soup in a bread bowl, but then you think “Why pay extra when it already comes with a baguette?” No? Is it just me? Well, now you can make yourself a bread bowl at home and fill it with all these scrumptious ingredients. 

7. Egg Pizza

Okay not to be too dramatic, but I would do just about anything to be able to eat this pizza. It just looks so inviting and and and I’m at a loss for words. Hats off to Stephanie for this masterpiece. You go Steph. Eggs are a wonderful source of nutrition. Pizza is one of the world’s ultimate comfort food creations. Put them together and you get an unstoppable version of the most mouthwatering, enchanting meal ever. I say unstoppable because you won’t be able to stop gorging your mouth with it. 

8. Egg Korma

I am almost certain that each of us choose a day out of the week to eat something a little more zesty and ethnic, whether it be Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Middle Eastern, or African. My go-to generally tends to be Indian, so here’s a way to incorporate eggs into Indian food. Warning: may be spicy for some audiences, but nonetheless, it is definitely worth trying. I promise and my promises should mean something to you… hopefully. 

9. Egg Drop Noodle Soup

Soup is a great option for dinnertime when you want to eat something light and fulfilling. I always add some Tabasco sauce in mine, just for a little kick, but soup can be enjoyed in many ways, especially if you get to drink out of one of those fancy spoons they give you at Chinese restaurants.

10. Egg Nachos

On many occasions, I have hailed myself as a great connoisseur of the nacho-making business, but today, I have been proven a failure. I stand before this picture of egg nachos and feel deeply ashamed to have thought that I knew all there was about nacho making. They had much more to give to us than I knew and for that I am sorry dearly beloved nacho. The options are endless with this, but here’s your key to unlocking the ultimate nacho extreme experience. Feel free to add on some of your favorite toppings!

And here’s a special 11th one, on the house. You really don’t need to incorporate eggs into another dinner type food for you to deem it acceptable to eat at dinnertime. Boi, you whip them sunny side up fried eggs and eat’em just as or make yourself a fine looking plate of scrambled eggs. I appreciate the egg in all forms and you should too.
