Serves 2

4 eggs, divided
splash milk or cream
1 dash salt
1 dash sugar, optional
2 sheets matzo
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Crack all but one of the eggs into a large bowl; add the milk, salt, and sugar, if using; and whisk very well to combine.
Break the matzah into 1/2-inch pieces or smaller and add to the egg mixture.
Let stand for at least 10 minutes, or until matzah is soft and pliable.

Huevos Rancheros

A tasty and relatively easy recipe with a great classic red sauce. The original recipe linked below uses canned chipotles, but this has been adapted to use more dried chiles, as the heat from the canned chipotles overpowers the eggs.

Sauce

  • 4-6 whole dried chipotles (only 2-3 canned)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, divided
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted (such as Muir Glen)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro leaves and fine stems, plus more for serving

Berber Eggs

Bon Appetit called this recipe Tunisian-style eggs, but we instantly recognized it as a close cousin to the Berber Eggs we had for breakfast in Morocco. We tweaked the recipe slightly, and it was delicious!

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red bell peppers, cored, chopped or thinly sliced into strips
1/2 large tomato, finely diced

Deviled Eggs

For some reason, I always get compliments on my deviled eggs. They're really not that hard to make. I typically go to deviledeggs.com for advice on cooking, peeling, etc. the eggs, but their tricks don't always work that well. I usually find inspiration in one of their recipes, but frankly it's not that difficult. This here is what I call a "notional" recipe because you can and should adjust the proportions to your liking.

Meringue

Preheat oven to 250F, with the rack in the center of the oven.

3 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You can form the cookies with a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) plain tip, or I often just use two spoons to make the cookies.

Beat the egg whites on low-medium speed until foamy.

Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat the whites until they hold soft peaks.

1/2 medium onion diced finely
1 habanero or scotch bonnet diced finely (optional)
2 large eggs
1 can evaporated milk (~12 oz)
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/3 tsp dry mustard

Fried Rice

This recipe is meant to mimic the fried rice of my favorite LA Chinese restaurant - Yang Chow (or Hunam, as it was called in my youth). The key feature is that it isn't loaded down with soy sauce. Your diners can always add it post-cooking.

Serves 4 as a side dish:

Ingredients
1 cup chinese/short-grain rice, cooked (Put 1 cup rice, 1.5 cups water in pot. Bring to boil. Reduce to simmer. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.) and fluffed with spoon or fork
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Pumpkin Pie

We tried making pumpkin pies from scratch (like, starting with a pumpkin scratch), but we never quite got it to come out right. We've reverted to Jon's grandmother's closely-guarded recipe, which comes from the side of a Libby's can:

1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
2 large eggs
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp cloves
¼ tsp allspice (optional)
1 pie crust

Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.

Spanish Tortilla

This recipe combines a few other recipes. We've made this twice now, and continue to tweak the balance; if anything, go lighter on the potatoes, and the cheese may or may not actually work well in conjunction with easy flipping of the tortilla. Nevertheless, it's hearty, tasty, just-oily-enough. Bonus: it's one of those wonderful dishes that's possibly even better as leftovers the next day.
