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.

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.
