These 19 delicious breakfast recipes featuring eggs are a great start to any day.
Hey friends, happy hump day! I have to tell you about such an awesome experience I had recently (which prompted this egg-a-palooza). I was invited to spend a couple of days with the Ohio Poultry Association and it was so much fun. I’m already a fan, but learning more about egg nutrition, Ohio egg farms and picking up some cool egg hacks (that’s a whole other post!) has re-ignited my eggy love. Did you realize that 1 egg contains 13 essential nutrients, 6 grams of protein and only 70 calories? That’s a lot of goodness in just 1 little egg, right?!
Due to very high health and safety standards for the hens, we weren’t able to actually visit an egg farm, but we got to see a virtual tour and it was truly incredible. To see the passion that these fellow-Ohioans have for their industry and also for the well being of their feathered friends was very inspiring. I was also so moved to learn that since 2005, Ohio egg farmers have donated over 3 million eggs to Ohio food banks.
And of course we ate eggs. Lots and lots of eggs. Eggs in so many different configurations that your head would spin. The OPA Vice President Jim graciously opened up his home and kitchen to us and fed us like queens. I mean, Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs?! Head = spin.
Although eggs are so much more than breakfast, since breakfast is my favorite meal I decided to round up some amazing egg breakfast recipes from some amazing Ohio food bloggers and from the Ohio Eggs recipe site. I dare you to look at these and not want to stop, drop and put an egg on it.
