Try One of Our 13 Best Egg Recipes for Dinner

We currently have leftover pancakes in the fridge from brunch over the weekend. Tonight’s dinner? 1000% it will be pancakes and eggs, of course.

During the week I can admit that sometimes I throw in the towel when it comes to cooking dinner, which is why I love easy, flavorful egg recipes for dinner.

I like to know that I’m serving something that is filling and has some protein, without relying on processed food, and eggs easily check those boxes for me.

From the perfect scrambled eggs to breakfast sandwiches made every which way, there is no shortage of egg dishes that make an entirely satisfying dinner.

Here are 13 such delicious and filling options – my nominees for the very best egg recipes for dinner that I put forth for your culinary consideration.

Broccoli Cheddar Zoodle Bake Recipe
Think of this broccoli cheddar zoodle bake as a frittata or crustless quiche, only with more veggies and more flavor. This recipe uses a spiralizer to make noodles from zucchini then you throw in a bunch of other vegetables, and you’ve got a tasty, healthy meal! Kale, broccoli, a bit of cheddar cheese and egg whites ultimately create one insanely delicious dinner that also makes a great lunch.

Easy Migas Recipe
I love love love this easy migas recipe – it is one of my favorite egg recipes for dinner! Of course, I love anything Tex Mex so that applies to migas as well. Think soft and cheesy scrambled eggs loaded up with peppers, onions, and fried tortillas, which some prefer to serve with refried beans before topping with salsa or sour cream. I like mine with tomatoes, avocado and queso fresco!

Cheesy Grits Recipe
Cheesy grits with eggs and spinach aren’t just for breakfast anymore – take my word for it! Cooked until creamy and smothered in cheese, I love grits with a couple of runny eggs on top served for dinner in much the same way you might eat cheesy grits with plump grilled cheese on top. Fried eggs or poached eggs are equally as good here so make them the way you love them best!

I love eating baked sweet potatoes for dinner, topped with all kinds of veggies and avocado and salsa and calling it good. These Mexican egg-stuffed baked sweet potatoes are all of that, only next level. Crack an egg directly into each potato and when they’re baked through top your eggy sweet potato with a big drizzle of tangy, avocado lime crema.

Yes, you read that correctly – bacon and egg risotto. A savory plate of risotto studded with bacon is topped with the egg of your choice, but take my word for it and go with a runny egg. Over easy or over medium are perfect with this bacon risotto! The best part? The risotto is made in the Instant Pot so you can be serving dinner in no time flat.

Made entirely in the toaster oven from start to finish these baked egg tostadas are practically begging to make your dinner menu at some point this week.

A savory frittata loaded with veggies is never a bad way to go in my world – especially when said vegetables include potatoes! Simply sauté the vegetables in a cast iron skillet, whisk in beaten eggs, and bake for 20 minutes. From start to finish, this recipe takes less than an hour and it can be made in advance and reheated for dinner any night of the week, but it’s also great for lunch.
