Eggin' me on............
It has happened in the lifetime of every chicken hoarder that I know. You are suddenly overwhelmed with eggs! Yep ..... as much as we love our feathered friends and delightfully gather the colored orbs........... there comes a time that 18 dozen eggs in the fridge are 15 dozen too many!!!!!!
The Good Egg by Marie Simmons is the cookbook for just those moments! 200 great recipes for using eggs ....... from breakfast to desserts. This book has been out for a few years but there are sooooo many good cookbooks, sometimes you pass up a great one!!!
I got the book for Christmas and all I can say is Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I really do love this book!!!
When it comes to inexpensive meals ... nothing can beat using eggs as the base. But Honey really gets tired of the frittatas and the omelets and scrambled eggs for supper. From unique egg salad combinations to quiches and souffles, there great recipes and even better, great springboards to creating your own recipes.
I don't know about you ...... but sometimes, I need a little push to try something new.
This book has new. We did a rice and egg salad one night. I enjoyed it as a main dish... Honey would have preferred it as a side with some grilled fish.
I loved the poach eggs on wilted spinach salad!!! Local spinach (Thanks, Nostalgia Farms) local bacon, eggs out the coop!
And this ..... I've done before .... a puffy Dutch pancake. I filled this one with Cinnamon apple ice cream topping (Yummo!) but next time, we will make a savory one. They suggest one with pancetta and mushrooms. Pancetta isn't too local in Iowa ....... I'll use bacon!!!
Tonight .......... goat cheese and sun-dried tomato souffle. I made the goat cheese. (Turned out wonderful, Deborah) I dried the tomatoes. Bread crumbs from ABin5 bread. And the eggs are compliments of the girls.
Should be good........... I'll let you know!
