Eggs and Easter may go hand in hand, but there’s more to these tiny bundles of protein-packed goodness than you might think. You should enjoy them all year round. According to the Colorado Department of Agriculture, “The incredible edible egg packs a lot of nutrition in a small package. One egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants, all for about 70 calories.” And since you can get them for anywhere from $2 to $5 a dozen (depending on whether you want extra-large, organic, free-range, etc.), they cost about 20 to 40 cents each. If you like eggs, they make an inexpensive breakfast that will get you through the morning. If you don’t like them plain – fried, scrambled, boiled or poached – there are many other ways to employ and enjoy these cheap eats. For 50 ways to eat eggs, from breakfast sandwiches to omelets to egg salad sandwiches, and just about any method of cooking you can imagine, try these Food Network recipes.
