Hallowe’en can be a frantic, flurry of frightful fun and I have to say I love it all. There’s dinner to make, kids to squeeze into costumes ready to burst from the coats we insist they wear underneath, reminders to keep safe, and Jack-o-lanterns to light. It may be tempting to order-in, but why do that when you can make a quick and delicious meal with eggs? If you’ve got eggs, you’ve got options. Here are six easy ideas you can pull off even on a busy Hallowe’en night. Enjoy!
- Baked Cinnamon French Toast. Baked in the oven so you can cook 6 pieces of bread at once, this is a great time-saver. Serve with fruit (fresh, frozen or canned) and a glass of milk.
- A big pan of cheesy scrambled eggs, raw peppers and carrots with dip, toast and milk.
- Egg burritos made with cheese and salsa. Give it an adult twist with jalepeno peppers. Serve with a tossed green salad and milk.
- Make up a quick egg salad and serve it as a dip with vegetables and pita wedges or bread sticks. Add some chunks of cheese, fresh fruit and milk. Tip: make hard-cooked eggs the day before. Did you know they keep fresh for a week in the fridge?
- Family Style Apple and Sausage Omelette. Serve with frozen mixed veggies, whole grain bread and milk.
- Egg fried rice made with frozen veggies and served with fruity smoothies. Tip: make extra rice the night before so you’ll have leftovers.
