Fresh eggs under glass

A woman down the road just offered me all the fresh eggs I want, as her hens are producing more than she needs now. (In exchange she asked for some slow-cooker recipes. Who's getting the better deal here?) I'm not usually a huge morning-egg-eater, but I've really appreciated extra-fresh, bright-yellow ones when I've been lucky enough to have them. What would you make with good eggs that would show off how good they are? Omelets are a given, but do you have other, more elaborate ideas? Maybe something fancy and dinner-party-worthy? Desserts especially?
I would make a fried egg sandwich with the egg still runny (like the one in Spanglish).
Poached eggs over a bistro salad.
Something like a strata might be a waste of such fine eggs?
Liana, my absolute favourite egg dish is a French classic called Oeufs en Meurette, eggs poached in red wine and served over croutes (fried bread) in a thickened red wine, bacon and mushroom sauce. Incroyable!!
I've eaten it only in restaurants, but here's a recipe.
