Eggs are NOT boring. They are the kind of secret weapon ingredient that prevents the I-have-nothing-to-make-for-lunch excuse.
Eggs aren’t fussy. If I’m working from home, I can cook them. If I’m working away from home, I can eat them boiled—or baked into a “muffin.” And I consider them a homemade food, and one that’s super-quick (unless you’re making hollandaise). Eggs also keep well. You can store enough in the refrigerator to save you that the mid-week run to the supermarket.
