Eggs are an incredible and super versatile food to have on hand. Not only are they delicious, but they’re filled with nutrients and antioxidants like protein, vitamin D, choline, selenium, iron, and carotenoids among others that are all important for human health.

While they’re most commonly used for breakfast, they can also be great for snacks, appetizers, lunches, and dinners and can easily be added to salads. For this post, we’ve rounded up a dozen healthy egg recipes that feature eggs as on the main ingredients.
