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.
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
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.
