Sometimes adding a simple boiled, poached, or fried egg over your regular meal with broccoli in it turns out amazing. Let us look at more ways you can eat broccoli and eggs together.

Fried rice is always the answer, always. Broccoli fried rice is delicious, and egg fried rice, where you scramble the egg into the rice, is equally yummy. Broccoli works as the perfect green veg to go with egg fried rice, regardless if you use florets or chop up the broccoli further.
You can even add a fried egg over your broccoli-fried rice to switch things up occasionally.
