With a quick scroll through Instagram, you'll find no shortage of perfectly-spread avocado toasts, plentiful puppies being generally adorable, and more than a few pastel-hued smoothie bowls. But at 33 million likes and counting, the new most-liked photo of all time will be tough to beat.

Hard though it may be to believe that something so ordinary could garner more attention than any other image on the platform, it was all part of a plan hatched by @world_record_egg. As Instagram users scrambled to crack a world record, it only took a matter of days to poach the top spot from Kylie Jenner's photo announcing the birth of her daughter, which fell to a distant second with a measly 18 million likes.


Eggs are incredible, versatile, and delicious, and therefore should be celebrated. We've gathered some of our favorite easy egg recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—the kind of meals you'll want to photograph and post to Instagram for all the likes.
