World Egg Day

Monday, October 15, 2018



This is our assignment for the Aspire and Inspire sparkteam: October 12 was World Egg Day. World Egg Day celebrates and promotes the benefits of eggs. It is truly a world, or international, celebration, from China and New Zealand, to Great Britain and Mexico.

This is no yolk. Eggs certainly are what they are cracked up to be. Aside from high cholesterol, eggs are a healthy food. High in nutrition, and low in fat, people all over the world enjoy eggs. And, they celebrate eggs on this day.

What's your favorite way to enjoy eggs? Do you have a favorite egg recipe you would like to share?

I do think eggs are a healthy addition to your diet. The way I have eggs the most is scrambled. I also enjoy deviled eggs, omelets, and quiche. I’ve never made quiche myself, but I have had it at restaurants. Here’s a bacon and cheese quiche recipe from Pillsbury that I found online. It sounds pretty easy.

Ingredients:
1 Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1 cup half-and-half or milk
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
1 cup shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped onion, if desired

Steps:
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.
2. In medium bowl, mix half-and-half, eggs, salt and pepper; set aside. Layer bacon, cheeses and onion in crust-lined plate. Pour egg mixture over top.
3. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes; cut into wedges.

    I love quiche, especially with spinach and mushrooms! I usually have eggs three or four times a week - I never get tired of them!

    I like eggs in many different ways. I think I made a quiche once many years ago. Thanks for the recipe! It sounds really good. :)

    I like your picture of the two smiling eggs! I do eat eggs, but so often I get sick of them. I prefer an omelette, but I will eat them over easy and sometimes sunny side up. I try to eat cholesterol-free liquid egg product as I have high cholesterol, but it is getting too expensive when compared with a carton of eggs at the store, even though I waste most of the yolks from cartoned eggs by not eating them.

    I am primarily vegetarian, and am interested in substituting tofu for eggs. But I do understand how eggs are an important food source and if, you have your own chickens, inexpensive and very fresh!

    Love Eggs Benedict! Do love a crustless quiche, too (whatever veggies I have are fair game!)

    I like eggs & veggies in a muffin pan. And fritattas.
    Oh, and just plain hard boiled.

    My favorite way to enjoy eggs is from a distance. I'm highly allergic to them. Eggs are one of the top allergens, but they are in everything. I have to read labels carefully.

    Thanks for sharing!
