Eggs are a beautiful thing.
Just look at that happy little poached egg with that glorious runny yolk (click here for instructions on how to perfectly poach an egg) and consider how lame it is that eggs are always being pigeonholed as a breakfast food. Eggs are too delicious and versatile not to be eaten all the time, including — no, especially — for dinner. Like so:
