good morning. Is there a more reliable kitchen ingredient than eggs? I love my cracked ramen in a bowl, sautéed on top of a slice of pizza, or scrambled for an omelette. A plate of roasted asparagus with a boiled egg to garnish the vegetables? This is a good dinner with a piece of toast. As is the pepper cheese frittata (above).
This week in New York Times Cooking, we’re celebrating eggs in all their glory with a special bundle featuring twenty of our best egg recipes. You’ll find it in print this weekend – Saturday for those with subscriptions and Sunday if you’re a newsstand buyer. Lovely.
As Eric Kim wrote in a beautiful preface, “The Magician in the Kitchen, eggs can turn meager meals into extravagant feasts, or serve as a midnight snack, brunch and nighttime wonder at the same time. They can work across cultures, cuisines, and cycles, providing The filling for one of life’s greatest salad sandwiches, the pomp of a delicious curry or shakshuka, and an airy body for sweet creations like pancakes, sponge cake, and pavlova.”
Check out all the recipes here.
The egg may come first, but don’t lose sight of the second place winner. I love the grilled chicken thighs on Saturday nights, and the Vesuvio chicken always. Chicken piccata might be fine if you’re craving that big-y zing. Or maybe try Ali Slagel’s new recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken Tenderizer? It’s a classic kids’ game that’s been turned into something a little more adult and juicy.
Heading in a completely different direction, you might take a stub of stale bread and what veggies are at the bottom of your vegetable drawer to make your new kai chun recipe for spring cleaning ribollita, a real standout soup.
It can be a good night for tofu makhani. Likewise for white beans with anchovies and Parmesan cheese. althoug? I Definitely Make Eggs: Ian Fisher’s Famous Spaghetti Carbonara for Weekend Win.
