The incredible, edible...well, you know.

My perfect morning starts with a cup of coffee, toast, and two soft-boiled eggs. There’s something so wonderful about the contrast of creamy, silky yolks and crispy sourdough (the coffee’s just there to wake me up). And when I finally get home after a long day at the office, a last-minute fried egg atop sautéed greens and pasta makes for a speedy, satisfying dinner.

Yes, eggs can do it all. Whether you’re a fan of crispy quiches, bite-sized devils, or fluffy clouds, eggs are there for you, ready and waiting to fill you up from sunrise to sunset.

To celebrate the incredible, edible egg, I've combed through Food52's near-decade-old recipe box for the most cooked, most favorited egg recipes ever. All 10 of these egg-cellent (sorry) recipes have hundreds of fans and thousands of likes. (And yes, it was hard to leave out numbers 11, 12, and 13—sorry eggs Benedict and breakfast casserole!) There are plenty more where they came from—but these are the best of the best, our community's absolute favorites.

Mark Bittman’s crispy fried eggs on brown butter sauced pasta with toasted pine nuts. We have chickens. Fresh eggs straight from the nest absolutely rule in Eggdom.

You are so right about the eggs. For people who don’t know, there is much more volume and the taste is phenomenal. If you can’t raise chickens, there are plenty of people locally who do and they would be happy to supply you...just ask!
