Eggs are fairly simple to make. You can probably cook one without giving it much thought. My perfect recipe involves mixing two eggs, some milk, salt, pepper, and green onions together; I'd prefer it with bacon bits but it's not necessary. If you're trying to figure out how else you could be enjoying your eggs, here are a eight solid options:

Sunny Side Up 

You've probably already done this at least once in your life, but do you know how to get it perfect every time? Heat the oil in a nonstick ceramic pan (if available), then let the egg cook for around two minutes.

Poached 

This just *sounds* intimidating, but it's not as hard as it sounds! Plus, it's kind of fun to make. This tutorial involves a vortex! Place a poached egg on top of toast or vegetables if you want an elevated breakfast experience.

Oof, I gotta admit, I've never tried this, but I am so, so ready to! The first step is just to make hard boiled eggs (see #3). When they're ready, remove the yolks. Break the yolks then add mayo, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix well!
