For many people, eggs are strictly a morning affair—but they shouldn’t be. Simple to cook, inexpensive, nutritious, and tasty to boot, they’re basically the perfect food. But despite their incredible versatility, it’s easy to forget that they’re a great place to start when you’re stumped for dinner options. These 10 meals are all big on taste without sacrificing nutrition, thanks to healthy swaps for traditionally fattening or high-calorie ingredients. Plus, you probably already have everything you need on hand, since every recipe calls for just five ingredients (plus salt, pepper, olive oil, or cooking spray). Now breathe a sigh of relief, because dinner is almost ready.
Brussels Sprout Hash
Love traditional potato hash? Here, shredded Brussels sprouts stand in for spuds, while turkey bacon takes the place of pork—but it still provides the super-satisfying flavor you want in a hash.
8 slices turkey bacon, chopped
1 lg shallot, halved and thinly sliced
3 c shredded Brussels sprouts (about 12 oz untrimmed sprouts)
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
4 lg eggs
1. PLACE turkey bacon in a large skillet over medium heat with 2 tsp olive oil. Cook, stirring, until browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon to a plate with a slotted spoon, leaving fat in pan.
2. ADD 1 tsp olive oil and shallot to pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
