3. Frog in a Hole

A childhood favorite for some and blessing to moms (and college kids) everywhere, this fun dish is great alone or as a foundation for toppings. Use the top of a glass to cut a hole in a piece of bread, throw it in a lightly greased pan and crack an egg in the the middle then flip.

You may want to buy a whole dozen just for these since they border on gourmet and storing is a cinch in the fridge. The recipe is more involved, so browse here and pick your poison!

5. The 2-Ingredient Paleo Pancake

A Paleo-craze anyone can get into. Grab a ripe banana and mash it up and mix in 1-2 eggs. Heat up a pan with coconut oil and then drop in and flip when lightly browned.

Tip: Change it up by adding vanilla and/or cinnamon into the mixture and topping with Nutella or strawberry jam.
