Key Ingredient: Eggs

This week, Bonnie Benwick featured Banh Mi Scrambled Eggs as her recommended quick weeknight meal. I think eggs are great. My husband and I are big fans of “brinner,” and sometimes after a long day at work I find myself staring at a fridge that holds little promise other than a carton of eggs.

Eggs take kindly to improvisation, but if you’re looking for a few ideas on how to cook this incredible edible food, here are several from our Recipe Finder:

Indian Spiced Scrambled Eggs (James M. Thresher for The Washington Post)

Frittata With Mushrooms and Winter Greens, to put to good use the greens that will be showing up at area farmers markets.

Indian Spiced Scrambled Eggs, another Dinner in 25 Minutes meal.

Rolled Egg White Omelet, if you want to cut back on your cholesterol.

How do you like your eggs?
