10 Best Egg Recipes for Breakfast
Eggs beaten to perfection along with your favourite seasonings, chopped onions, tomatoes, fresh green chillies and coriander leaves. The pan gives out a symphonic swish as the mixture hits the heat and gradually what one sees is a fluffy, moist, delicious omelet turning into a perfect gold. Which is why today we bring you our best egg recipes for breakfast.

I am passionate about eggs. For a person who doesn't quite enjoy toiling in the kitchen, an egg is like a wonder ingredient. From plain, simple and sumptuously satisfying omelets to the more exquisite preparations including the worlds of the Benedicts, Scotch eggs and much more - it is an item that can go along with its master - whether a beginner or a sophisticated chef. My culinary journey started at a point where I had a series of omelets burned right in front of my eyes - for the fear of flipping them and accidentally breaking their delicate roundness - to now, when I scrutinize and find ways to incorporate eggs in almost every recipe that I can think of. Honestly, some of the most joyous sights to my eyes would be seeing my sunny-side-ups getting done to perfection.

I don't care much about my breakfast till it is energy dense, full of nutrients sans any junk. Perfectly done eggs along with a glass of juice, a couple of slices of whole grain bread or muesli and I am set. Though I am the kind of person who doesn't get bored of classics easily, having a chance to eat a variety of egg preparations for breakfast is something I would call my personal bliss.

Moreover, there is just so much that one can do with eggs. You don't need elaborate prepping to cooks eggs. While omelets, half fries and the classic hard-boiled would seem passé to most food enthusiasts, the poached, scrambled, baked or for that matter deviled versions are a certain hit with me. I admit, eggs and breakfast go hand in hand for most of us. It is as ubiquitous a combination as that of a needle and thread. But for those who loathe monotony and detest routine in their days, we have a stellar breakfast menu chalked out for you, made exclusively of eggs.

Cooking tip: Want dreamy, creamy scrambled eggs for breakfast? Cooking eggs on low flame renders an evenly cooked texture, always remember, eggs are delicate. With every one egg consider putting in a teaspoon of heavy cream or milk for that fluffy, silken texture.
