Full of protein and oh-so-versatile, the magical food that is an egg can do many things. And, thankfully for food waste purposes, eggs last a long time in the fridge. I don't think I've ever thrown out a rotten egg in my life.
For that reason, we often have eggs in our fridge when we have nothing else, which is why it's useful to have a broad repertoire of egg recipes. Even if you have only wilted vegetables, you can make a delicious meal if you also have eggs. They're a great oh-shoot-I-need-to-eat-something-right-now meal and I think we can all agree that everyone needs a few of those in their back pocket.
