Scrambled, poached or maybe a little coddled… there are thousands of ways to enjoy eggs in your life. So why do we tend to think of them as a breakfast and lunch food? Eggs aren’t just great protein for a well-rounded dinner: they’re super quick and easy to make. From soups and salads to quiche, frittata and other egg-inspired dinners, here’s a roundup of some of our most egg-cellent dinner recipes.

French toast for dinner? Yes please. We love Nigella’s parmesan take on the brunch classic. It’s almost like a fancy grilled cheese for adults, but with more sophisticated flavours. Pair it with a salad if you want a complete meal.
