Best Egg Recipes for People Who Do Not Like Eggs

My big secret is that I don’t really like eggs! When we first started this operation I thought I would get over my egg issues because “they taste so much better.” The truth is they do, I would much rather have a farm-fresh egg than a store-bought egg any day. (If you are looking to raise your chickens, start here with my quick guide on what to know before getting your first chicks.) I know there have to be others out there like me, who spend a lot of time trying to find the best egg recipes that are the least “eggy”! I will eat scrambled eggs, but a runny yolky egg gets to me every time. So below is a list of all of my favorite ways to use up eggs that I actually really love to eat.

1. Spaghetti Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara is a classic dish made by tempering eggs before mixing them with parmesan cheese, bacon, and spaghetti noodles. This is a favorite dinner in our household. Once you get the technique down it’s an amazingly quick and easy weeknight dish. Here is a recipe, from Martha Stewart very similar to how I do it. My exact recipe will have to come later ;).

2. Farm Fresh Eggs Florentine

Eggs Florentine was completely new to me a few years ago and while this recipe isn’t like the classic dish it is absolutely delicious. My favorite time to make this is in the late winter when our kale is dormant but still standing and the chickens are just beginning to lay again. Now because I am not a runny egg person I scramble my eggs before putting them in the skillet and they come out fluffy and delicious every time. We also use this recipe with quail eggs and duck eggs. The Farm Fresh Eggs Florentine recipe can be found on the Elliott Homestead blog.

3. Gyeranmari (Rolled Egg Omelet)

I have a secret passion (or maybe not so secret anymore) for Korean cooking. I absolutely love the fresh ingredients mixed perfectly with fermented foods, which I believe is the perfect inspiration for modern farmers to use in their cooking. The rolled egg omelet is buttery, pillowy, and perfectly salty. It is best served over a bowl of rice with seasoned meat, but it’s also great on its own. You can find a great recipe for Gyeranmari on Maangchi’s blog.

4. Chinese Steamed Eggs

Chinese Steamed Eggs were a surprise to me! In my search for the best egg recipes, I found the idea on Pinterest. I was really uncertain how they would taste or if I would like them but the texture sounded alluring. They are exactly as they describe! Silky, soft, savory, and so delicious. I make mine with homemade chicken stock and whatever veggies or herbs I have on hand. You can find a great step-by-step guide here at Red House Spice.

5. Eggs Benedict Casserole

Eggs Benedict is a dish I have a love-hate relationship with. Poached eggs are definitely not my thing but English muffins, ham, and hollandaise sauce are the best combination ever. I often request eggs benedict with scrambled eggs depending on how well the eggs are cooked it can make it or break it for me. This casserole is the answer to all of those issues. The eggs are soaked up by the bread and the ham is perfectly portioned in the dish with marvelous hollandaise sauce served on top. I first made this for a family Easter Brunch and it was an immediate favorite. This recipe is found originally in the Magnolia Table book by Joanna Gaines and Marah Stets.

6. Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise Sauce needs its own description because it is just that good. Yes, it has boatloads of butter and is not healthy but it is a marvelous treat. I have tried making hollandaise so many different ways and in my opinion, this classic way from Alton Brown is the simplest and comes out perfect every time. Sometimes oversimplifying things actually makes it more complicated and you less successful so stick to this classic recipe.

7. Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos are a great way to use up eggs! Two to three eggs per burrito, some hashbrowns or potatoes, cheese, bacon or sausage, and salsa, it’s almost too easy. I make these campfire breakfast burritos for camping, but they are also just great at home for a quick breakfast when we have to get outside to work. You can find a great recipe for campfire breakfast burritos here.

8. Quiche Lorraine

I think Quiche Lorraine has been popular in the US since Julia Child’s rise to popularity in the ’60s (maybe before but that seems to be the basis for all of the recipes today). To be honest I never liked quiche BUT the crust makes all of the difference. I only make pie crust with leaf lard now and it comes out perfectly flaky every single time. This classic quiche recipe is delicious and so simple.

Eggs are a wonderful source of protein and are even better when they are farm fresh eggs. If you are like me and dislike the pure simple flavor of eggs then this recipe list should help you find ways to use up more eggs. If you love eggs then I still think these are the best egg recipes for using up a plethora of eggs! Let me know in the comments what your favorite egg recipes are, maybe I will try them 😉 (no runny yolks, haha).
