15 egg recipes that you cannot do without

In celebration of World Egg Day, we share our top recipes using eggs.


"How would you like your eggs?'... This is a common question that many of us that eat out for breakfast are used to. Over-easy, poached, boiled, soft-boiled, scrambled... it's something that's as personal and specific as the way that the outside layer of a new roll of toilet paper sits. Get it wrong, and there is sure to be an exasperated sigh of annoyance!

There are so many beautiful dishes that encompass the humble egg as an ingredient. From sweet and savoury sauces, to whole meals, desserts and snacks. It's one of the most versatile food items we have! And without it you cannot make:

1. Omelettes

2. Hollandaise sauce

3. Crème brûlée

4. Soufflé

5. Floating Islands

6. French Toast

7. Meringues
