95 Egg-cellent Dishes! 95 Egg-cellent Dishes!

95 Eggcellent Dishes

My kids have grown a new love for eggs. This is great because here, we can buy fresh egg every day for pennies – literally. Last week my youngest decided he didn’t want what we were having for dinner, so off he went to the hanut, a very small “corner store” found everywhere here. He came back minutes later with 2 eggs and a small loaf of bread. For 2 dirham (about 20 cents). I quickly made them for him and he was content. I’ve appreciated eggs even more since moving to Morocco. They’re cheap and filling and can be prepared so many ways.

In honor of my new found appreciation for the humble egg, here are 95 ways to prepare them!

    I could watch cooking shows all day long - in any language. I am always intrigued by what a chef chooses to create with ingredients, especially unique ingredients. On an episode of Chopped one of the ingredients was quail eggs. I remember thinking how adorable the little eggs looked, but slightly queasy thinking of the…

    A very popular tajine is the egg and meatball tajine.  It's great because it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Paired with a salad it makes a fantastic dinner.  Coupled with some tea and dates a nice, hearty breakfast.  I don't always like eggs so I changed this recipe slightly and made simply…

    Have you ever seen Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods Morocco?  If so you saw khlii.  Overall I was disappointed with this episode because frankly it just wasn't that bizarre to me!  When he tried khlii it was labeled as rotten meat.  It's not rotten meat.  Khlii is made from beef or lamb that is seasoned and…

    This is awesome! Thanks so much for including my pickled eggs in your list. I’ll definitely be trying out some of these. The moroccan dish looks like an adaptation of the shakshuka I posted yesterday too. I MUST TRY THAT!

      I had to include them! When I was growing up my dad ate pickled eggs all the time. Now I know where to find a good recipe the next time I want to make him a surprise! Shakshuka and the Moroccan egg and meatball dish are related – it’s a favorite here.

    I am so loving all of your posts…keep them coming. I am still wondering about art in the schools for your boys in Marakkech? Do they have any? If so…what do they do? I teach art ed at the university here in New Mexico and am doing research on arts education for k-12 schools in Morocco. Thanks and hope to meet you next time I am in Morocco. Nancy
