Incredible Egg Variations

Eggs are incredibly versatile so why not get creative with your carton

Soft-Fried: Did you know that you can get the same yolky goodness you love in soft-boiled eggs with soft-fried eggs? They can also be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days if you want to make them ahead for different meals. Try them out on our delicious Shoyu Rice with Soft Boiled Egg recipe.

Scrambled: Arguably the easiest variation to prepare, scrambled eggs have found their way into various breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes. Whether you want to start the day with some huevos rancheros or crave a take-out favorite like our Singapore Rice, scrambled eggs will give you an extra push of energy! For an extra creamy texture, add a dollop of sour cream to your eggs and beat the mixture with a fork before it hits the pan. Or, put your microwave to work and give this simple 6-minute ​​Microwave Egg Fried Rice a try. 

Poached: For those who don’t have a stovetop, cooked eggs are still within reach. Try poaching eggs in the microwave for fantastic results! In fact, this tasty Pesto Egg Rice breakfast demonstrates just how easy it truly is.
