“The incredible, edible egg” — The American Egg Board
I love how versatile the egg is. Whether it’s a standalone hardboiled version, or a delicious frittata with roasted vegetables and smoked ham, I can always count on the egg to satisfy me. I love how inexpensive the egg is, too. At $.10 to $.30 an egg (depending on the quality), it packs a lot of bang for the buck.
(And don’t get me started on the incredible taste and texture of farm fresh eggs. My friend, Karen, has chickens at her house that produce the most delicious tasting eggs, and I am always so excited when she brings some over for me.)
It’s not hard to cook an egg. At its simplest, it requires a pot of water, or a fry pan with a bit of butter or oil. Dressing up an egg is the fun part. Spices, sauces, vegetables, meats, and grains can all contribute to a scrumptious dish.
Over the years, I have created and prepared some wonderful egg dishes for my family and friends, with relatively little effort. It has become a main part of my breakfast routine, and overall health plan.
It wasn’t always that way. I remember many years when cereal and milk was the only thing I could manage to prepare in the morning.
I would like to take you on a guided tour of how I learned to cook variation after variation of delicous and beautiful egg dishes.
