Eggs are a simple and convenient meal for any time of day. You can make an omelette or scrambled for the morning or have shakshuka or egg tacos for the evening. 

According to USDA, the edible egg is worth eating daily as it contains six grams of protein and 11% of the required amount of vitamin D. Eggs can be eaten baked, poached, deviled, or scrambled. 

Whenever you feel like a snack, quickly prepare a 5-minute sandwich or a batch of boiled eggs to satisfy your appetite all week. An egg, indeed, shines at all times of the day!

Here are the best egg dishes to satisfy your appetites at midnight. They are excellent and bursting with flavour–and more than that, they are super-easy to make when the hunger pangs hit in the middle of the night. Break a yolk and get ready to be swept away by these delectable egg recipes.

Try These Top 10 Simple Egg Recipes

1. Deviled Eggs

One can replace the mayonnaise in the classic recipe with nonfat Greek yoghurt to maintain a high protein and a low saturated fat content. Even though these little devils are little, they are packed with tasty and filling ingredients. The vinegar and sweet pickle relish add tang, while a pinch of paprika provides some smokiness and fire. 

2. Eggs Scrambled With Macadamia Cheese

You can eat your mac and cheese at dinner. If there is a leftover, you can pair it with scrambled eggs for midnight snacks. This wonderful gooey cheese dish reduces carbohydrates, increases protein, and increases calcium and vitamin D content. You won't regret having this egg and cheese for a snack. It can be completed in less than 10 minutes, too. 

3. Spicy Egg Muffins

Combine spinach, chillies, eggs, egg whites, and cheese to make the muffin batter. After that, crisp up bell peppers, potatoes, onions, and low-sodium cooked ham in a nonstick skillet. Combined, they create a filling meal that will wow children and adults. You can make this beforehand at the store for a perfect midnight snack.

4. Sweet Potato and Veggie Omelette

End your craving with a healthy dose of antioxidants with our veggie-packed scramble. Add some flavour and crunch to the scramble with bell peppers, sweet potatoes, Swiss chard, scallions, and parsley. If you have leftovers, reheat them for a delicious breakfast! 

5. Eggplant Empanadas

These delicious empanadas are what would happen if a croissant and a breakfast sandwich had a child. You'll want to consume the toasty "hot pocket" made of the flaky, buttery, and hearty crust. The stuffing is quite tasty and consists of chicken sausage, eggs, shredded Swiss cheese, bell peppers, and scallions. 

6. Avocado Egg Baked Easy

Crack an egg into each of the two sides of an avocado. The egg whites and yolks should be set for around 15 minutes after baking them. Arrange the spicy salsa with tomatoes, cilantro, red onion, and jalapeño over the avocado halves. This dish will surely hit the right spot in the night without making you feel guilty. 

7. Kale Frittata With Turkey Sausage

This recipe only requires a simple combination of all the components, making meal prep a breeze. Although turkey sausage is lower in fat than pork sausage, it tastes excellent. Chopped oregano and garlic add delicious flavour, and kale and cherry tomatoes are loaded with fibre and antioxidants. 

8. Breakfast Tacos For The Cravings

This filling breakfast dish can also be eaten as a snack, including corn tortillas, salsa, fried eggs, and beans. Tomatoes, maize, onions and cilantro amp up the Southwestern flavours, and eggs and beans make a protein-rich duo! The tortillas must be baked for a few minutes for the cheese to melt over the beans. 

9. Plantain Flatbread With Honey And Poached Egg

Plantains, the sister crop to bananas, are a perfect base for gluten-free bread since they are lower in sugar and higher in starch. Plantains and eggs are combined to create a batter that resembles pancakes in this dish. Because the bread fully absorbs the yolk, a poached egg is the ideal accompaniment. A honey drizzle gives it a delicious touch. 

10. Eggs Benedict

Although the dish has over 700 calories, you should adore the buttery hollandaise sauce on eggs benedict. The healthier alternative uses chicken broth instead of using butter to improve the sauce's flavour. Pour some vinegar into a saucepan of boiling water to poach the egg. Once the egg whites are opaque, submerge a cracked egg into the water. 

Why not try these recipes the next time you're feeling particularly craving? These are the ideal late-night snack and are quite satisfying.
