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…

1/2 Cup shredded sweetened coconut

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter, eggs, bananas, yogurt, sugar and peanut butter into a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine. 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. Scoop into muffin tins lined with paper cups 2/3 way full. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and shredded coconut. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center.

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.

    I’ve become addicted to making something I call a baked omlette.
    You can use what ever combination of ingredients you want but here’s my favorite:
    6 eggs
    1/4 c. milk
    1 green pepper, choppped
    1/2 red onion, chopped
    1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese
    Olive oil spray
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees
    Spray deep, oven safe skillet liberally with olive oil spray. Over med heat, add green pepper and onion and cook until just starting
    to soften. In a separate bowl, add eggs and milk, whisk to combine. Add vegetable mixture to eggs, then add cheese and mix until just combined. Spray skillet with olive oil spray and add egg mixture. Stir with wooden spoon or spatula until eggs are just starting to set. Place skillet in preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. I top with homemade pico de gallo. It’s my favorite quick, easy weeknight meal!

    My husband makes us “Tortilla.” He learned to make it in Spain. Eggs, ham and some diced, cooked potatoes. It is delicious and we love to have it for dinner. Comes out a little like a big omelet. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Joy says:

    My all-time favorite egg recipe is a good old fashioned cheese omlet. I love to spice it up with tomatoes, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and pepper jack cheese. I also love gluten-free sweeet and sour chicken where the “breading” on the chicken is actually just whipped eggs baked over the chicken.

  26. 76
    Launa says:

    I hard boil eggs and use just the whites and mix in hickory smoke tuna (in the foil), mustard, chopped celery, salt and pepper and wrap it in lettuce. I eat it for lunch a lot!! Thanks.

    I don’t know if I have a favorite recipe as I LOVE to bake and you can’t bake without using eggs…. However, my family does love my Keylime Pie or Keylime Cheesecake. :) Oh how I love cheesecake.

    Marlene says:

    I think that the only good egg is one in a dessert. I choose chocolate cake or cheesecake or applesauce cookies or cinnamon rolls. The list never ends!

  31. 81
    Steph McCord says:

    There is nothing more comforting than a good old french toast casserole. It takes whatever “leftover bread” you have on hand, 1 dozen eggs (!!) and some half & half – spice it up with cinnamon, nutmeg & brown sugar and you’re ready to go!! Thanks for the chancew to win!!

    1/2 cup of Half & Half
    1 cup of Diced Hame
    1 cup of Swiss Cheese
    Some Chives..

    Preheat the oven to 400*, cook the empty pie shell for 8min. and then remove from the oven and drop the temp down to 325*, fill the pie shells with the filling, and bake for 35-40 min.

    I raise chickens so I don’t buy Eggland Eggs very often. But there is that time during the winte where my chickens just don’t lay and then it’s only Egglands Best for us. They are just like my own right out of the coop fresh eggs. As for a recipe, my absolutely favorite egg recipe is just a plain old soft boiled egg, served with a slice of buttery toast. Mmmmmm, nothing could be better!

    Tammy says:

    I am not sure if this is available to canadian residents( i am from alberta canada) but i thought i would still leave a comment. I buy these wonderful eggs, the antibiotic free ones and i like to make 2 favorite dishes. One is potatoe egg salad with cooked cubed potatoes, cooked eggs cut up some miricle whip and a little green onion and sprinkle with paprica, sometimes i add some dill or mustard to it. My other favorite it home made egg mcmuffins so easy and quick.

    My favorite egg recipe is hazelnut meringue cookies. You make a meringue, mix half with chopped hazelnuts and cinnamon. You scope the nut mixture onto a cookie sheet for a cookie base, top each with the left over meringue, and put a whole hazelnut on top. Yummy!
