What would you cook for me if I asked you to make me breakfast with egg? Scrambled egg? Fried eggs and bacon? Eggy bread? What if I were to tell you that those ideas were only the very tip of the eggs-for-breakfast iceberg?

Why don’t I show you instead?

175 Breakfast with Eggs Ideas

Every single one of the recipes on this page features eggs. In some of them, eggs are the main character; in others, they play only a supporting role. But those eggs are in each and every single one, and they’re all perfect for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

We love a versatile food, don’t we?

Let’s get stuck in…

15 Scrambled Egg Breakfast Recipes

I’m going to start with a few scrambled egg breakfast recipes, because that’s a traditional breakfast dish, right? All of these feature a little special twist on traditional scramble.

20 Poached Egg Breakfast Ideas

It’s now time for me to share with you all the poached egg recipes and tweaks I found, but before I do, how about a fun egg-based fact first? Chickens were thought to have been domesticated as far back as 7500 BCE, by the people of South-East Asia.

Poached Egg Breakfast Ideas

And now I’m going to share another interesting egg-based fact with you, but this time about egg cartons. They were first created in 1911 and are a Canadian creation. A chap called Joseph Coyle invented them, from Smithers in the province of British Columbia.

10 Breakfast with Eggs and Vegetables

Eggs are actually quite incredible when you think about it. They can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, from breakfast right through to the midnight snack. You can make scrambled eggs in just a couple of minutes with the microwave, but that’s definitely not the only quick dish.

Breakfast with Eggs and Vegetables

Eggs work well with a wide range of other ingredients, too. Vegetables, for example, are commonly served up alongside eggs. That’s why I’ve decided to create a special category for the egg recipes that also contain lots of nice, healthy vegetables.

20 Breakfast with Eggs and Meat

Eggs and bacon (or meat-free bacon) is a firm favorite on many a breakfast table, but bacon is not the only meat that pairs well. Ham, spam, pancetta, prosciutto, chorizo, and sausage are great with eggs, amongst many others.

Breakfast with Eggs and Meat

Boiled eggs are thought to contain vitamin D, vitamin B12, vitamin A, riboflavin, zinc, phosphorous, and more, which means they’ll make for a healthy, nutrition-boosting breakfast as well as a super tasty one.

15 Breakfast Cups and Muffins with Egg

Savoury muffins and cakes are great for breakfast on-the-go. You can bake them the night before and simply grab one as you run out the door, and you can even batch-create and then freeze them. This is actually a great way to use up eggs that are slowly creeping towards their use-by date.

Breakfast Cups and Muffins with Egg

Not only that, but kids will also love them. Who doesn’t enjoy breakfast when it has it a cake-like name?! You can tweak and customize these dishes in so many ways, you’re bound to find something that the whole family will enjoy.

20 Breakfast with Egg Sandwiches, Toast, and Wraps

It’s time for another eggy fact, people. Going back to the nutrients that eggs contain, they are one of the very few foods in which you can naturally find vitamin D. You’ll find foods fortified with the vitamin, such as cereals, but there aren’t many foods out there that naturally contain it.

Breakfast with Egg Sandwiches, Toast, and Wraps

Speaking from personal experience, a vitamin D deficiency is absolutely nothing to joke about. It leaves you feeling incredibly tired, wreaks havoc on your mental health, and generally leaves you feeling incredibly unpleasant.

So… yeah, make sure you get enough vitamin D, folks! (You can also get it from sunshine, in case you weren’t aware.)

10 Breakfast Egg Roll Ideas

If you need to save some money on your food shopping, always pick white eggs over brown ones. The brown ones are usually a bit more expensive because of the process to get them. Bigger hens lay brown eggs, and bigger hens means more space and more feed, amongst other things. Because of this increase in cost to the farmer, the cost is passed down to the consumer.

Breakfast Egg Roll Ideas

Another way you can save money is by using your eggs up before they go bad. You can actually freeze many of these recipes, which means you can pop the leftovers in the freezer and grab them as and when you need to. No more need to throw bad eggs away!

5 Baked Egg Breakfast Recipes

Baked eggs are quite an easy dish to make for breakfast. Usually, you throw everything into a pan and then bake them in the oven, although there are many other methods and ways of whipping them up these days.

Baked Egg Breakfast Recipes

Whether or not you think breakfast is important, there are definitely benefits to be had from fitting in your morning meal. According to Marilia Chamon, a health specialist, the right breakfast will bring benefits such as, “steady glucose levels, consistent energy, less cravings and a better mood.”

10 Devilled Egg Breakfast Ideas

Some people don’t think of devilled eggs as a breakfast idea, but who says you can’t have them for your morning meal? Eggs are packed with nutrients and can be good for heart health when eaten in moderation, and when you combine that with breakfast, you have a dish that is jam-packed with benefits.

Devilled Egg Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast isn’t just thought to have overall health benefits, either. A study in Tokyo showed that people who skipped breakfast were more likely to experience depression. One study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology also showed that skipping breakfast could lead to a massively increased risk of suffering from strokes and other cardiovascular problems… and then dying from them.

5 Cheesy Breakfast with Egg Ideas

Most of us believe that the white of the egg contains more protein than the yolk but the fact is, they contain exactly the same amount of protein. The yellow part has more calories than the white part, however. If you’re on the hunt for a lower calorie breakfast, egg white omelettes and similar dishes are the way to go.

Cheesy Breakfast with Egg Ideas

The yolk contains a lot of nutrients and micronutrients, so it’s wise to eat them occasionally if you can. You’ll find that these cheesy breakfast with egg ideas will help with that!

5 Breakfast Casserole Ideas

Casseroles take longer than other breakfast with egg recipes, but they’re definitely worth the wait. You could even put some in a Tupperware tub and take it to work for lunch.

Breakfast Casserole Ideas

Have you ever wondered why we tend to eat more chicken eggs than eggs of other birds? Quail eggs, duck eggs, and more are sold but they’re rarely the ones we stick in our fridge. To put it bluntly, it is more cost effective to produce chicken eggs. They lay them at a faster rate than other birds. It all comes down to profit, basically. (And convenience, of course.)

15 Breakfast Omelette Recipes

Omelettes are such a traditional breakfast dish but I wonder how often you get inventive or creative with the ingredients you add to them. For the longest time, I only added cheese and ham, but after researching this list of breakfast with egg recipes, I soon realised that there was a massive world of omelettes that I hadn’t yet explored.
