8 excellent egg recipes

Eggs are one of nature's best convenience foods -- they come pre-packaged and are in handy portion controlled sizes.

Eggs are a healthy, low-calorie, way to add protein to your diet. They're also a great source of vitamin B12, which helps prevent heart disease.

How to store eggs

Store eggs in the carton that they come in. This will keep them safe and prevent them from absorbing strong smells that might be lurking in your fridge.

Best before

As with any fresh food make sure to observe the best before date on the carton.

We asked Canadian Living Test Kitchen Food Specialist Amanda Barnier how she uses eggs at home.

"Eggs are great for every meal because they're so versatile. Hard boiled and chopped into a salad, soft poached over toast, or tossed into hot noodles. They're a protein that I always have on hand in the fridge," she says.

From boiling to frying, eggs can be prepared in an endless number of ways and everyone has a personal favourite.

"I love poaching eggs," Barnier says. "My go to 'breakfast for dinner' is a poached egg over sliced avocado, crispy bacon and toast spread with tangy mustard. I love eggs!"
