I recently was given the opportunity to host an Eggland’s Best Brunch. Some of my family planned to be out-of-town on Easter Sunday, so we held our brunch on Palm Sunday. I invited my parents, my brother and his family, and my kids and grandkids. We had a full house. All fourteen of us congregated in my tiny kitchen, sneaking bites of food (and mimosas) when possible. Those not quick enough to leave the kitchen were put to work.
With the generous gift pack I received from Eggland’s, we were able to have an eggceptional brunch. The more than generous gift pack included a large bowl (love it), a whisk (love it too), an eco bag (more love), an egg-shaped cutting board (so cute), a scraper/dough cutter (needed it), a coffee mug (perfect), eggs (wo hoo!), an awesome gift card, and the opportunity for one of my readers to receive an Eggland’s Best Brunch gift pack.
We’ve eaten Eggland’s Best eggs for some time now. I’m eggtremely picky about meat and dairy products that contain additional hormones (won’t eat it if I can help it), so Eggland’s Best eggs are a choice pick for me. Eggland’s Best hens are fed an all-vegetarian diet and are not given steroids, hormones, or antibiotics of any kind. The eggs also provide superior nutrition. Each egg is an eggcellent source of vitamins and has more than an ordinary egg: 10 x more Vitamin E, 3 x more Vitamin B12, twice the Vitamin D, more than double the Omega 3, 38 percent more Luten, and a good source of Vitamin B2 and B5. Eggland’s Best eggs also contain 25 percent less saturated fat and only 175 mg cholesterol than ordinary eggs. Check out EB’s website for more information about the nutritional value of Eggland’s Best eggs.
Another plus is that when hard-boiled, Eggland’s Best eggs are easy to peel. Some brands of eggs are impossible to peel. Parts of the egg come off with the shell, which is most frustrating if you’re making deviled eggs. (I was complaining to someone at work about my hard-boiled eggs falling apart, and she suggested I try Eggland’s. That’s how I got hooked on EB.)
I don’t know of one Italian-American family that doesn’t serve a lot of food when they get together, and my family is no eggception. For brunch we served ham, fresh berries, sliced tomatoes, and roasted breakfast potatoes. Our egg dishes: apostles’ fingers, pepperoni frittata, egg salad on croissants, pickled eggs,eggs benedict, breakfast burritos, deviled eggs, and Easter sweet bread. You’ll find these recipes here on olives-n-okra. We all had a great time, and we all over ate as usual.
