This week's Ultimate Recipe Swap is all about eggs. Eggs are a very versatile food - and a good source of protein.

Two recipes that immediately came to mind that have egg as a primary ingredient, turns out that I had already shared before:

Broccoli Cheese Quiche
Snowdrop Cookies

I frequently use eggs as a main course, when we do breakfast for dinner. Sometimes we get fancy and will do omellettes with everyone choosing their own filling. Other times, we simply will cook eggs, perhaps with pancakes on the side. When we do, the kids prefer their eggs scrambled, but I like mine over easy (actually closer to over medium - I don't want the whites to be runny but the yolk to still be dippy). One fun way to serve your egg and bread together is with Hole in Ones (perhaps there is an official name, but the friend that introduced me to them called them Hole in Ones).

Hole in Ones

4 slices bread
4 eggs
butter or margarine

Remove a small circle of bread from the middle of each slice of bread. Butter both sides of the bread. Place in a griddle/skillet over medium heat. Break egg and pour into the center of the bread. Let cook for a few minutes until the whites begin to set. Flip over, allowing to cook until egg is desired doneness.

I need more than one slice of bread for dipping, so I serve with toast on the side.

Thank you for posting these. We also eat eggs every day. I keep trying to convince my dh that we should get a chicken coop and raise chickens for fresh and organic eggs. But he hasn't budged yet! We have family in PA that raise chickens and I promise you that the eggs they raise are SOOO much better than what is sold in the stores. So, if I can, I am always on the lookout for coupons for organic eggs. Maybe you can do a giveaway and review post someday??Hint Hint;)
