Need one more reason to love eggs? Wanderlust Hollywood executive chef Seamus Mullen exalts them to superfood status.

In my book, eggs are a superfood, and they should always be cooked gently,” says Seamus. “This open face sandwich is one of the nicest ways to prepare eggs, softly scrambling them and loading them with lots of veggie goodness.”

Soft, creamy eggs mixed with your favorite seasonal vegetables? Super, indeed.
