EGGS SEEM TOO OFTEN TO GET PIGEON-HOLED INTO BREAKFAST ROLES, but they’re so versatile and good for you there’s no reason they can’t be the main course at lunch or dinner, too. These recipes prove that if you think outside of the shell, you can do most anything with eggs. Eggs and toast is a spin on a Spanish dish called migas. While recipes vary from town to town, they always include some form of dayold bread. This version toasts cubed bread in olive oil and paprika, then is topped with goat cheese and a fried egg for a complete meal.
Eggs in Purgatory is an oldschool Neapolitan dish known to be the poor man’s eggs Benedict. In reality, it’s simply eggs poached, or baked, in a spicy tomato sauce, and served over bread, mashed potatoes, or polenta. This sauce recipe is fairly mild, so if you like heat, increase the pepper flakes. And finally, try this popular Roman egg drop soup called stracciatella [STRAHT-chahTEHL-lah]. Meaning “little rags” in Italian, the eggs look like shreds when added to the soup. It’s perfect for a first course, and a great choice for a light dinner. With broth and eggs on hand, it can be made in minutes.
