My four-year old daughter is a picky eater, but she LOVES to eat eggs.  And why not?  Eggs are delicious and packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals.  I’ve shared before about 5 minute healthy breakfast ideas.  However, today I’d like to provide a few delicious and healthy egg recipes for any member of your family to enjoy morning, noon, or night.

Loaded Scrambled Eggs

This egg recipe is easy to prepare and serves about four people.  Plus, if you’re like my family, try this as a “breakfast for dinner” treat.  And don’t forget to add some hearty onions, peppers, cheddar, and tomatoes.

Healthy Deviled Eggs

With only 73 calories per egg, this is a great egg recipe to eat as a snack or as a “mini breakfast”.

Deviled eggs are typically made with a mixture of egg yolk, mustard, mayonnaise, and spices.  However, try cutting out the mayonnaise and swapping it out for plain Greek yogurt.  Doing this nearly cuts the fat in half and increases your protein intake.

Ultimate Breakfast Burritos with Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe comes courtesy of The Foodie Physician and I am…drooling.  Fluffy scrambled eggs,  avocado, and cheddar cheese are rolled up in whole grain tortillas and dipped in sweet potato hash.

This is not a “quick” egg recipe.   The prep and cook time takes a total of 55 minutes.  However,  if your taste buds are seeking something delicious and out of the ordinary, then this recipe is calling your name.

Basil-Arugula Crispy Egg Toast

I eat this a lot as a post-workout “power” breakfast.

First, I toast up whole grain bread.   I love oozy eggs that are browned and crisped on the bottom.  However, I encourage you to prepare your eggs in any style that suits your taste buds.  I guarantee that this meal is delicious, healthy, and serves two as an entrée.  Enjoy!

Easy Spinach Artichoke Quiche Cups

Confession time:  Spinach artichoke dip has always been a weakness of mine.  However, I’ve finally found a recipe where I can ditch the extra carbs and bulk up on truly wholesome ingredients.  These low-calorie quiche cups look like savory muffins. Plus, they’re high in fiber and protein – perfect for breakfast or a mid-day snack!
