What to Make When…Eggs

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 9, 2011

It’s time for another version of “what to make when.”

When it comes to eggs, I regularly see them on sale for $1 a dozen…and sometimes even $.88 a dozen!  I do buy some eggs from the store, but for the most part we get farm fresh eggs from our friends from church who raise chickens.

A couple of ideas for you, for when you snag an extra dozen or two in a great sale!

And now you can have something for for breakfast…other than scrambled, fried or poached eggs! And don’t forget to check out how to make the perfect scrambled eggs!

Sometimes you also end up with extra egg yolks or egg whites that you need to do something with. Here are some ideas:

For dinner, I’ll make omelets more savory than for breakfast, like these Spinach-Feta Omelets with Rosemary Potatoes:

Where were these ideas when I had chickens and my kitchen was running over with eggs? ;) Great ideas.

I wish eggs were less expensive here. They are $1.58 a dozen here for store brand, sometimes on sale for $1.25 a dozen but not often.

My girls had a snow day so thanks for all the breakfast ideas we made ham and egg McMuffins. I dragged out the griddle and toasted the english muffins as well as the ham and eggs and they were awesome.

Thanks for all the breakfast inspiration, we do love breakfast foods.
