Eggs improve the texture of custards, act as binders for meats and stuffing, emulsify fats and liquids, add volume to baked goods, and make pastries shine. Plus, they’re nutritionally complete and delicious. Good eggs from good pastures can be found all over the country, and they’re about the best bang for your buck in terms of high-quality protein. A meal composed of eggs will almost always cost less than a meat-centric dish. Search for recipes for the following dishes online, or arm yourself with a great egg cookbook.
