If there is more than one egg, then you'll hear:
"There are eggs, honey, cheese, butter and olives on her plate."
The only two countable nouns in that list are "eggs" and "olives". The fact that the egg comes first in the list makes the sentence more difficult to construct. To make life simpler and to ensure that "are" is used, I would change the order of the foods:
There are olives, honey, cheese, butter and eggs/an egg on her plate.
