If your interest in eggs, extends to chickens, then the Fresh Egg Cookbook by Jennifer Trainer Thompson is an eggcellent choice. Recipes are interlaced with photographs and anecdotes about their chickens. There is also information about various chicken breeds. Most of the the recipes use simple techniques and are well suited for someone looking to make a quick meal. Recipes include a variety of omelets, soups, sandwiches, casseroles, and a few fancier dishes. If you are interested in more elaborate egg recipes, you might be more interested in the second book on our list

The Perfect Egg by Teri Fisher has a variety of recipes broken down into the categories of egg basics, morning, snacks, afternoon, night, and sweets. Some recipes have eggs as the main ingredient, like in Quiche Lorraine or Huevos Rancheros. But it also features recipes where eggs are a supporting ingredients like in Hawaiian Sweet Rolls or Chinese Egg Noodles. There are beautiful color photographs for many recipes and I found the instructions easy to follow. Several of the recipes have a Korean influence and you might need to buy some specialty ingredients that may not already be in your pantry. But most of the recipes can be made with stuff you probably buy on a regular basis.

 

Egg Clouds (pictured left) is my favorite recipe from the The Perfect Egg cookbook. Basically, you separate the egg yolks and whites. Then you whip the egg whites into a stiff peak and bake with the yolk on top of the cloud. It’s delicious and very fancy looking, especially since it’s very easy to make.
