When most people hear the words “healthy egg breakfast” they instantly think of boring egg whites and dry whole wheat toast. But there are plenty of easy egg breakfasts you can make that are both healthy and tasty.
I know because I’ve made over 30 egg breakfast recipes in the past 7 years, and have narrowed my favorites down to 3 breakfast dishes you can enjoy every day.
Healthy Egg Breakfasts
1. Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos with Hot Honey
You’ll want to drizzle the chile-infused honey on everything from pizza to fried chicken. Feel free to make the tacos more filling with a dollop of refried beans.
2. Mini Spanish Tortilla with Zucchini
Isn’t it the prettiest single-serve breakfast you ever did see? We’d plate it with a side of greens or fresh fruit.
3. Poached Egg with Frisé and Arugula Salad
If you always have trouble making a flawless poached egg, you need this recipe in your life. A dash of vinegar is all it takes for the egg white to set neatly.
4. Sweet Potato, Bacon and Broccoli Egg Muffins
Tender veggies meet thick-cut bacon in this grab-and-go breakfast, because it’s all about balance, people.
5. Baked Eggs in Avocado
Bring on the heart-healthy fats (and crumbled cotija cheese). If you love a runny yolk, this 25-minute meal will become your new go-to.
6. Quiche with Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Crust
Cut down on the carbs by trading dough for thin-sliced sweet potatoes. Don’t worry, though—the quiche is still layered with lots of Emmentaler cheese.
7. Yotam Ottolenghi’s Braised Eggs with Leek and Za’atar
Wash it down with coffee on a weekday, but we’d be remiss not to tell you how well this brunch star pairs with white wine. (And really, it can become a satisfying meal for any time of day.)
8. Red Shakshuka
This baked egg dish from Israel is so much simpler to make than it looks. Serve it with plenty of crusty bread for scooping up the spicy harissa tomato sauce.
9. Slow Cooker Mediterranean Frittata
Talk about hands-off. You basically just need to dump in all the ingredients and let the Crockpot work its magic.
10. Sweet Potato Rösti with Fried Eggs and Greens
Never had rösti before? It’s sort of like a latke, except it’s of Swiss origin and shallow-fried in a pan. You can use grated carrots or squash instead of sweet potato if you’d prefer.
11. Breakfast Caprese with Soft Boiled Eggs
Protein-rich eggs take the iconic mozzarella-tomato-basil combo from a snack to a meal.
12. Ketogenic Baked Eggs and Zoodles with Avocado
How cute are those swirly veggie nests? Plate them with cheese and crispy bacon strips, and you’ve got a full-blown keto feast.
13. Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole
Eggs, scallions, cherry tomatoes, hash browns, white cheddar cheese, bacon—yup, the gang’s all here. Pass the mimosa pitcher, please.
