So I've got some Eggs I need to get rid of, but I was going to make Chili tonight. I thought about just cracking them open and addend then to the sauce to thicken it up a bit and add some more protein. But that seems a little...boring.

Can anyone suggest some other methods?

I don't think you will like how the eggs will turn out if you add them to the chili without cooking them first. However, if you must add them, and I mean REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, have to add them :), scramble them first and then add them.

Otherwise, the cornbread idea is the way to go.

Cheers! :)

Devil them with chili powder and use your chili broth instead of mayo. Use less broth of course. Some diced peppers of your chosen intensity would good as would some scallion

When I make Chili and want it for breakfast I poach the eggs on top of the Chili till whites are just set and the yolks are sunny side up. Now you have something to sop up with your toast, biscuit, cornbread, etc.
