Now, if you still haven’t considered including eggs to your diet, then we have some yummy variety of egg preparations to share with you which could change your mind.

Cloud Eggs: As the name suggests, these are egg yolk in a cloud of beaten egg white which is trending all over the internet. Although this method of egg preparation was introduced to the culinary world a few years back it wasn’t until the recent days that cloud eggs become a huge hit due to the full blown insta-trend. This is not a quick preparation compared to sunny side up or an omelette, as it requires some beating and baking but is sure a crowd pleaser and a fun way to present eggs to kids.

You could serve it on an avocado toast or simply with some avocado salad which in either way will not only taste great but will also add an extra healthy touch to your breakfast.

Egg Hoppers: Thin pancakes with lacy edges and soft & spongy center made with fermented rice flour batter in a wok to create a bowl shape to hold a steamed sunny side up in the middle is the egg hopper from Sri Lanka which is becoming a popular choice of breakfast in the west. This recipe needs some preparation in advance for the rice batter to ferment and some wok swirling skills as well to swirl the batter around the wok to get the desired shape.

Egg in the hole: Sunny side up in a toast hole is not a very new way of egg preparation but is sure a fun way to prepare eggs for kids. It’s easy to make and all you need is a cookie cutter of your choice to make any shape of hole on the toast to break the egg open into it which is cooked in a hot and buttered pan.
