Easy and inventive egg recipes (that will reduce your risk of stroke)With the news that eating one egg a day may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, it seems only right that eggs are making a breakfast comeback. According to new research published in the journal Heart, for which researchers from Peking University Health Science Centre examined data from over 400,000 participants in China, consumption of up to one egg daily was linked with lower rates of strokes and heart disease. While in this country, it seems we have already embraced the idea of going to work on an egg once more. In March, figures showed that we are eat on average an egg every two days - bringing us closer to the levels of egg consumption seen in the 1970s, when they were at their peak.  The British Egg Industry Council, which carried out the research, said people are once again taking the time to make a "proper" breakfast after a string of reports warning of cereal's high sugar content, with some containing as much as 12g of sugar per serving.  It is estimated that over the Easter bank holiday around 45 million eggs are eaten a day, with families sitting down to brunches that star eggs as the star of the show.  Not only are eggs delicious and incredibly versatile, they are an extremely healthy choice too, being high in protein, low in calories and full of vitamins. Here, then, we share some of our favourite egg-based recipes, making the most of this humble yet heroic ingredient.  Easy and exciting egg recipes Coddled eggs with spinach, mushrooms, and Marmite soldiers Credit: ANDERS SCHONNEMANN  Colourful layered eggs Credit: Susan Bell The Delauney's eggs Arlington   Socca flatbreads with herb yoghurt, harissa, feta and fried eggs Credit: Olivia Williamson  Baked sausages, with beans, eggs and feta  Credit: Haarala Hamilton  Breakfast bacon and egg tart The perfect shakshuka Credit: Heathcliff O'Malley Duck egg with smoked salmon and caviar Credit: KATE WHITAKER New potato and chorizo hash with asparagus and poached egg Indian cheese on toast Credit: Dishoom  Sweet potato mash with bacon lardons, fried egg and parsley pesto Credit: Yuki Sugiura
