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.

    Becky says:

    I love breakfast burritos, especially with some tater tots and sausage/bacon thrown in there. I also love a good quiche, but usually don’t have time to put it together.

    Kellie says:

    Here’s my favorite egg recipe:
    My daddy calls them “popcorn eggs”
    Scramble your eggs right into a buttered hot skillet, continuously stir and chop the eggs. Keep cooking beyond how you would cook regular scrambled eggs. Keep chopping and frying! The finished product should resemble small popcorn crispy bits of eggs.
    Ok, serving…take gulden’s mustard and put all over top of your eggs in your plate.
    Eat with toast, sausage or bacon and make a sandwich- YUM! SO good :)

    I love just a good ‘ol egg sandwich! To lighten it up a bit, I toast 1 slice of bread and cut it horizontally ( takes a little practice), fry 1 egg in some smart balaance, top with 1 slice of light american cheese. A very satisfying breakfast with a piece of fruit and coffee!

    Teralyn says:

    We love Cheese Dillies – you use the egg batter from french toast and dip one side of two pieces of bread. Take one piece of bread and put the dipped side down on the skillet then add a slice of cheese and then take the second piece of bread and put the dry side face down. toast the one side flip and toast the other side until cheese is melted. They have been in our family for at least 3 generations.

    Shelly says:

    Eggland’s Best are the only kind of eggs I buy. I like that they are better for you than regular eggs and still taste the same. I like to make quiche with a potato crust instead of pie crust.

    I eat eggs every single morning. Honestly, I just love simple, scrambled eggs with a bit of milk and cheese…YUM! I also love a really simple “quiche” made with lots of zuchinni, Bisquick, eggs, milk, and parmesan cheese. So simple and delicious!

    1 fried egg
    1 pc of 2% Kraft cheese
    salt & Pepper.
    Toast english muffin, add egg & cheese

    This morning I made an egg casserole for breakfast. They are so yummy and warm, perfect for a rainy morning!

    Chile Cheese Casserole
    ½ cups butter (I used real butter)

    10 eggs

    ½ cup flour

    1 tsp baking powder

    8oz diced green chilies (I used the mild)

    Dash salt

    1 pint cottage cheese (I used a non fat cottage cheese)

    1 lb jack cheese grated

    Use a large bowl lightly beat eggs, adds flour, baking powder, salt and blend together. Add butter, chilies, cottage cheese, jack cheese and blend.

    Bake @ 400 degrees for 15 minutes, and then reduce to 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes until golden brown on the top.

    I suggest when baking, depending on your oven to check the casserole a few minutes earlier on the 35 to 45 minutes time frame.

    I love making a hashbrown crust quiche, with monterey and cheddar cheese, milk, sourcream and green chilis! So good!! I have never tried EB eggs, but I will put them on my list, and see if I can taste a difference!

    Thanks for the great giveaway Jen! I babysit our young granddaughters quite a bit and one perpetual favorite is scrambled eggs with american cheese melted over. They love them. It would be fun to try this product in scrambled eggs for them.

    Lisa says:

    Creme brulee, bread pudding, or just straight up–love plain scrambled or hardboiled eggs!

  31. 131

    I ALWAYS use Eggland’s Best Eggs. I eat eggs with pretty much every meal… egg white scrambles in the AM, Cobb Salad (with chopped egg) for lunch, and I always make buttermilk biscuits with whatever dinner I’m making. One of my favorite recipes is my Lemon Pound Cake, in which you use 6… yes that’s right 6 eggs for just one pound cake! So I need the best quality eggs for my baking products.
    THANKS EGGSLAND’S BEST for healthy and delicious eggs! :)

    Anna says:

    A simple and easy crowd pleaser is mini veggie frittatas. I beat 12 eggs along with cheese, chopped mushrooms and peppers. Spray a mini muffin pan with Pam and fill with the egg mixture. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Delish!

  33. 133
    Nicole says:

    Once, a month, my husband and I treat ourselves to a bacon and egg sandwich on the Arnolds sandwich thins. SOOOO good!!

    Brittany says:

    Last week I had nothing to make for dinner so I threw together some breakfast burritos with everything I had in my fridge!! They were amazing! This is what I did:

    7 eggs
    1/2 pound ground beef
    chopped green onion
    tomato
    green chilis
    sauteed mushrooms
    cheese

    then I used uncooked tortillas (cooked them of course) and made the burritos! SO SO yummy!! And pretty healthy too!

    Holly says:

    I am a picky shopper especially for my clothes. When my son came home from college and went to fix breakfast he took the eggs out and said, “Really mom Eddie Bauer eggs too!” My kids tease me all the time about my Eddie Bauer eggs. I love Eggland eggs! One of our favorite recipes is scrambled eggs with sharp cheese, chopped ham and green onions. Sometimes we add rice and a little soy sauce…mmmmm.

    Kelly says:

    I love to make an egg casserole to eat during the week with lots of green chiles in it – yum!

    Jen McDonald says:

    I don’t know what to call it, but my mil makes this great egg casserole with green chilies, Monterrey jack cheese, sour cream, and eggs. It is REALLY good and with salsa on top is even better.

    Ashley says:

    Oven puff pancakes

    8 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1 tsp. salt

    Mix milk and eggs well. Add salt and slowly mix in flour.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees and melt butter in pan. Coat all side with melted butter and pour in batter. Bake for 20 minutes until done and puffy.

    megan says:

    I bake a lot but when I think of eggs I would have to say that simply scrammbled is the best!

  43. 143
    Joanna says:

    Honestly, I’m in love with toad in the hole right now! A little melted butter, a slice of thick rye with a hole torn in the middle, and an egg cracked in the center is heaven to me :) Easy peasy.

    Christina says:

    I love a simple sausage, egg and cheese sandwich. I am simple, but love the good stuff!!!!!

    Custard French Toast!! So amazingly good. It’s sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream. Top with a raspberry sauce…so good!! A great egg recipe!!!!!

  47. 147
    Sarah says:

    I love to make Fried Matzos with eggs. It’s something my mom made me when I was young, and her mom made it for her. I plan to make it for my kids and then teach them how to make it for their kids! For 2 servings, soften one and a half crunched up egg and onion flavored matzo crackers under hot water in a colander. Crack one egg into a bowl and add about a T of hot water then beat it with a fork. Smash the crackers into the egg mixture and let it soak up the egg while you heat a skillet with butter in it to make it non stick, on medium high heat. Pour the egg and cracker mixture into the pan and cook like a fritatta. Yummy!

    Erin Woods says:

    My kids love quiche! We like to do a cheese and bacon for the kiddos and a spinach with roasted peppers and onions in the other. Yum!
