If there is one thing that I always keep around, it’s eggs. Not only are they inexpensive and easy to cook, but there are so many ways to enjoy them. Scrambled, fried, poached, hard or soft-boiled, on their own, packed with veggies, loaded with melty cheese, or served with meat…the possibilities really are just about endless for eggs, and that’s why they’re one of my favorite refrigerator staples.

Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy microwave egg scramble, a breakfast burrito or quesadilla, or eggs for dinner, this list of all of the Best Egg Recipes has something for everyone!

Scrambled Egg Recipes

Let’s start with the classic: scrambled eggs. I love scrambling eggs because it’s just so easy. You just crack a few eggs into a skillet, push them around for a few minutes, and they’re good to go. The most difficult part is deciding what to serve them with because there are so many options! 

Well, hopefully, these five recipes will help you narrow down your scrambled egg options. Try them in burritos, scrambles, bowls, tacos, you name it.

Tortilla Baked Eggs

Tortilla Baked Eggs are a fun and flexible way to use leftover ingredients from the week in a delicious homemade breakfast.
Whole tortilla baked eggs on a plate with fork on the side
Servings 2
Prep 5 mins
Cook 25 mins
Total 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil ($0.08)
  • 1 8" flour tortilla ($0.14)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach ($0.16)
  • 4 large eggs ($0.92)
  • 1/8 tsp salt ($0.01)
  • 1/8 tsp freshly cracked black pepper ($0.01)
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes ($0.37)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar ($0.21)
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper (optional) ($0.01)

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Brush the inside of a round, 7-inch diameter oven safe dish* with olive oil. Press the tortilla down into the dish so that the edges of the tortilla are folded up the sides of the dish (see step by step photos below).
  • Roughly chop the spinach then add it to the bottom of the tortilla. Crack the four eggs into the tortilla on top of the spinach. Add a pinch of salt and pepper on top of the eggs.
  • Slice the grap tomatoes in half, then sprinkle them over the eggs. Finally, top with shredded cheese.
  • Bake the egg filled tortilla in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are still jammy. You can shake the dish to see if the whites still jiggle or if they are set. Baking time may vary depending on the size of your tortilla and number of eggs used.
  • Remove the tortilla baked eggs from the oven and slide them out of the dish. Slice into four pieces, then serve!

Notes

*You can use any size oven-safe round dish, but make sure you use a tortilla of a slightly larger size than the dish. For instance, you can use an 8-inch pie tin, but you’ll want to use a tortilla that is approximately 9-inches in diameter. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of your dish and tortilla. See step 4 above for a tip on how to tell it’s finished baking.
