Eggs are among the most versatile of foods and from basic methods-boiling, poaching, scrambling, and frying-attractive egg dishes of the simple or sophisticated kind are easy to create. Fresh herbs, finely chopped sauteed mushrooms, slices of skinned tomato, sauteed onion, chopped bacon, grated cheese, and asparagus are but a few possible additions, without taking into account the host of suitable sauces ready and waiting to be used- a creamy Bechamel, to which one may add flavorsome tidbits or tasty sauce made from chicken stock.

Many egg dishes may be made beforehand and heated later. To the busy homemaker or the working cook, they should be invaluable. An egg dish carefully prepared should have a kind of elegance which sets it apart from any other type of food.

The egg provides the source of food for the developing chicken embryo and contains the essential food nutrients. Protein, water, and mineral salts are obtained from the yolk and the white, and fats and vitamins from the yolk only.
