Loving Eggland’s Best Review and Giveaway!



This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Eggland’s Best.

Contest is now closed.  Congrats to entry #358, Laura, who was chosen from Random.org

I am thrilled to be hosting this Review and Giveaway for Eggland’s Best Eggs.  Not only am I reviewing this product, but am offering a $100 Visa Giftcard for my readers!

Eggs are a staple in my home as I bet they are in your homes too!  I was so impressed to find that Eggland’s Best Eggs contain ten times more Vitamin E than ordinary eggs, 100 mg of Omega 3,  25% less Saturated Fat, and 200 mcg of Lutein, shown to contribute to eye health.  It was also comforting to find that Eggland’s Best Eggs are produced by hens that are fed an all-natural, all-vegetarian diet. Basically, these eggs are more healthy than your typical egg and that rates GREAT with me!!  With all the cooking and baking I do, I want nothing but the best eggs for my family.

I was not sure if I would be able to tell a difference when cooking with Eggland’s Best Eggs, but I will tell you, there was a difference, they tasted wonderful!  I will definitely be a long time consumer of Eggland’s Best!

Here are three recipes of mine that feature eggs…

Place all dry ingredients into a separate large bowl and stir to combine. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips until just combined.

Broccoli Cheddar and Sausage Egg Muffin Pull-A-Parts

6 Pillsbury Buttermilk biscuits (from can, 8 count)
Pinches of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

1 Cup cooked broccoli florets, cut up into small pieces
1/2 Cup cooked sausage links, cut up

4 Eggland’s Best Eggs
3 Tablespoons milk
Pinches of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cholula hot sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a texas size 6 Cup muffin tin with cooking spray. You’ll have 2 extra biscuits left over. Bake them separately if so desired. Cut each of the 6 biscuits into 8 triangles and place into each muffin tin. Lightly sprinkle each biscuit cup with salt and pepper.

2. Sprinkle broccoli and sausage evenly over each biscuit filled muffin cup.

3. Place eggs, milk, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined. Pour evenly over each cup. With a fork make sure eggs get to the bottom and around each piece of biscuit. Top each with sprinkles of cheddar cheese and bake for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from center of biscuits and cheese is golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin cup. Remove and arrange onto serving plate. If you like it spicy serve with a nice hot sauce like Cholulla, it’s wonderful!! Pull them apart with your fingers or cut with a fork. Enjoy.

    Each Christmas we have Swedish Eggs (go figure we’re Danish). The eggs are baked & cut into squares. You top them with a sour cream sauce & what ever topping your heart desires (bacon, cheese, shrimp…you get the idea.

    My favorite thing to make with eggs… a custard-base vanilla bean ice cream. Then use the egg whites to make an angel food cake. It’s the perfect summer dessert.

    To my fiance and me, weekends mean sleeping late and cooking a big breakfast at home. One of my favorite egg dishes is the ‘leftover omelet.’ Throughout the week, we will save leftovers from some of our dinner entrees and use them for omelet stuffings on the weekend. Savory, meaty, juicy dishes work best. Some of our favorites have been pulled pork bbq in a cranberry/chili sauce, slow-cooked venison roast and meat/veggie leftovers from taco night. I use 2-3 of eggland’s best free range/certified humane eggs, a little bit of milk, pepper and a cuban spice mix that I make myself. Sometimes we add gouda or cheddar cheese. Then the leftovers go inside the omelet, and we usually add a topping or side of salsa, bbq sauce and/or sriracha sauce for a kick.

    I love to make gougeres with gruyere cheese. It’s a pate a choux dough with the cheese mixed in to make it savory instead of sweet. The recipe calls for 4 eggs, which give the gougeres a nice pouf and eggy inside texture! Love it!

    D. Dallas says:

    I LOVE EB! So funny, we had to borrow eggs from our neighbor (aka the Reverend from our church) when I was younger, and he explained to me that they were Eggland’s Best, showed me the EB printed in red, and told me some info about them. I’ve been hooked ever since!

    I like it simple- 3 egg whites, one egg, scrambled. NOM!!! That says EGGS to me.

    When I think of eggs, I love “Toad In The Hole”.
    Toast the bread and make a hole in the center and fry the egg inside the toast. Yummy!

  22. 22
    Rebecca says:

    I actually make an egg dish every week for breakfasts that I can just stick in the microwave — no real recipe. A couple of eggs, a couple of egg yolks, some cottage cheese, whatever veggies are lying around, and some spices; just stick em in the oven at 375 for about 30-40 mins and you’re good!

    Thanks for the chance to win

    we always stock up on eggs because i go through so many of them a week! my favorite thing to do is make pate a choux (cream puffs), but lately i’ve REALLY loved making breakfast (something i don’t usually do during the week) and have been craving over easy and sunny side up eggs a lot!! i also like to boil several for the week to have a hard boiled egg as a healthy snack in between meals so that i’m not munching on chips or other not so good for you stuff!!

    I really love thick, rich custardy chocolate creme brulee. It is my favorite dessert on earth, and requires loads of eggs. Here’s a good start:

    Our favorite egg recipe is for German Pancakes or Dutch babies. I learned how to make these un High school home ec. class. They are probably my kids favorite breakfast ans we make them every Sunday. The recipe is so simple too. You can multiply the recipe for how many people you are feeding. For each person you will need 2 eggs, 1.2 cup flour and 1/2 cup milk. That is it! We usually do 8 eggs, 2 cups milk and 2 cups flour for our family. You mix in the blender for 2 minutes and bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Eat with powdered sugar and syrup or jam. Enjoy!

    Celeste says:

    I love quiche!! And, here’s how I make mine (delicious):
    bake a premade/frozen pie crust. Spread a tablespoon of prepared mustard on the bottom.

    Then, whisk together about 3 eggs and some milk or cream. Mix in chopped, fresh basil and some ground black pepper.

    Fill the baked pie shell w/ chopped, cooked ham & some shredded cheese. Pour the egg mixture over it. Bake.

    The mustard on the crust is what really gives it that extra kick!!

    Well I think just about every one of my favorite desserts has eggs! My favorite “egg” recipes would have to be quiche and a skillet breakfast with poached eggs on top. I love that these eggs are more nutritive than other eggs – such a bonus!
