Versatile, quick and protein-packed, eggs are real rockstars in the kitchen. And with winter slowly melting at spring’s arrival, it’s time to share the spotlight with the flavorful dozen. Here are five of our favorite egg recipes for keeping the table fresh, inventive and deliciously spring-ready.

Basil Deviled Eggs

A fresh twist on the iconic appetizer classic, perfect for pairing with a Brut sparkling wine.

Lamb Shoulder Hash with Poached Duck Eggs and Raclette Sauce

Mission Table’s chef, Paul Olson, created a farmer’s market inspired brunch. Olson and his wife, Barbara, liked it so much, the high-end hash ended up on the Easter brunch menu at the restaurant.

At Martha’s Leelanau Table, asparagus side dishes are a staple on the menu. This is one of our favorites.
