"Itlog" is the Tagalog term for egg. Eggs are a versatile and popular ingredient in many types of cuisine around the world, and can be prepared in a wide variety of ways.

Here are some examples of dishes that feature eggs:

  1. Omelettes: An omelette is a dish made by whisking eggs together with other ingredients like cheese, vegetables, or meat, and then cooking the mixture in a pan until set.

  2. Scrambled eggs: Scrambled eggs are a simple dish made by whisking eggs together with a splash of milk or cream, and then cooking the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, until the eggs are cooked through.

  3. Hard-boiled eggs: Hard-boiled eggs are eggs that have been boiled until the yolk and white are fully cooked. They can be eaten on their own as a snack, or used as an ingredient in salads or sandwiches.

  4. Deviled eggs: Deviled eggs are hard-boiled eggs that have been cut in half, and the yolks have been removed and mixed with other ingredients like mayonnaise, mustard, and spices, before being piped back into the egg whites.

Similar ingredients to eggs include:

  1. Tofu: Tofu is a plant-based protein that has a similar texture to eggs, and can be used as a substitute in many egg-based dishes.

  2. Egg whites: Egg whites are a low-fat, high-protein alternative to whole eggs, and can be used in dishes like meringues or as a binder in meatballs or meatloaf.

  3. Quail eggs: Quail eggs are small, delicate eggs that are often used in Asian cuisine. They can be hard-boiled, fried, or used as a garnish.

  4. Duck eggs: Duck eggs are larger and richer than chicken eggs, and can be used in many of the same ways as chicken eggs. They are a common ingredient in Chinese cuisine.
