Put Those Eggs to Good Use

Your backyard chickens are doing a great job! They’re laying eggs like crazy, and your refrigerator—if not your kitchen counter—is starting to fill up with egg cartons. That is a good problem to have, but what are you going to do with all those eggs? 

The obvious solution is to eat them. As food products go, you really cannot beat eggs. At only 70 calories, one large egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals and high quality protein. Egg whites contain some of that protein, riboflavin, and selenium, but the majority of nutritive value of an egg is in the yolk. 

So, you’ve made deviled eggs and are already eating eggs for breakfast in a variety of ways. How many different ways are there to eat an egg? The good news is that eggs can be incorporated into any meal of the day, and we have found some of the best egg recipes out there. Happy cooking!
