What's for Dinner: Put an Egg on It

Give your dinner an eggy halo

Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

We've already extolled the virtues of breakfast for dinner, but sometimes you want to give eggs your undivided attention. You could hold off until the weekend and make an egg-filled brunch, but why wait? Take your dinner sunny-side up and put your eggs where they belong—on everything, that is.

① Drink: Ramos Gin Fizz

Sure, this one technically falls into the category of putting an egg in it, but we're letting it slide.

② Main Course: Leek and Pancetta Risotto with Fried Egg

Risotto may have a reputation for weighing you down, but this version from chef Darren McRonald will keep the spring in your step. Break the seal and watch the yolk runneth over in-season leeks and crispy pancetta.

③ Side Dish: Asparagus with Egg and Chorizo

It may read "side dish," but its bold flavors refuse to be sidelined: smoky chorizo on top, charred asparagus on bottom and smashed hard-boiled eggs in between. The blanket of egg-based sauce is reminiscent of gribiche, a cornichon-spiked cousin of mayo.
