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 semi sweet chocolate chips

1/4 Cup coarse sugar (I used Turbinado sugar)
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.

    Whitney says:

    Scrambled eggs is an all time favorite of mine, but what people don’t realize is that the secret ingredient to scrambled eggs is cottage cheese. I dare you to try it. Just add the cottage cheese a little before the eggs are finished cooking. It makes the consistency and flavor of the eggs perfect and the cottage cheese makes it so the eggs are never dry. YUM!

    Amy H, says:

    Hootanannys! Or German pancakes I think some people call them- but Hootanannys are so much more fun to say.

    I am a believer in Eggland’s Best as well! I have tried them all, and my sisters and I agree that Eggland’s Best taste really the best! And have you noticed, that they have the least messy cartons? I have rarely found eggs that are broken in my egg cartons- the regular store brands- always broken, messy, sticky. I guess they just ship them better!

    My favorite breakfast is Puff Pancakes, also known by many other names; German Pancake, Mountains and Hills…anyway, here’s my recipe for it!

    Puff Pancake

    6 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1 cup flour
    ½ tsp. salt
    3 Tbsp. butter or margarine

    1.Take out middle rack in oven, leaving just the lower rack. Preheat oven to 450°F. Set 9X13 inch glass pan into hot oven on lower rack until very hot.
    2.Meanwhile, beat together eggs, milk, flour and salt by hand or in blender or food processor until smooth.
    3.Take pan out of oven and melt butter or margarine in it.
    4.Pour batter into pan. Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F and continue cooking for 10 – 12 more minutes.

    Variation: Peel and chop 2 – 3 apples. Spread apple chunks evenly in pan after butter is melted. Sprinkle with 2 – 3 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar mixture. Pour batter over apples and continue baking as instructed above.

    I love an South African recipe that a friend gave me in the Fall. It is kind of a brunch quiche type of a recipe. It has spinach, egg, feta, crubled bacon, etc. It is to die for…YUM!

    Suzanne says:

    Man, I just love eggs! Scrambled, fried, you name it. I love just about any kind of breakfast casserole and I love a recipe for Cheesy Potato Pie found here:

    Jenny says:

    I use eggs in so many things! It’s hard to narrow it down to a few recipes. I do scramble them and fry them a lot, and I use them in so many different baked goods. I really want to try Eggland’s Best and see if I notice a difference.

  16. 166
    Emily says:

    I love to make what my mom called Giant Pancake. I think its more recognizable name is a German Pancake….based on the recipes I have seen. We would have it on cold rainy nights. I made it for my husband and he considers it to be a dessert….not a dinner. Anyway you slice it, it is delicious.

    3 T sugar
    1/2 t salt
    1/2 lb butter
    1 cake yeast
    5 egg yolks
    1/2 pint sour cream

    Sift flour, sugar, and salt. Cut butter into sifted flour as for pie dough. Crush yeast with 1 T sugar to make a paste. Put sour cream into yeast. Beat egg yolks well. Add sour cream mix to yolks. Blend together with flour mixture until dough is smooth. Refrigerate overnight.

    Filling:
    1 lb walnuts, finely chopped
    5 egg whites
    1 cup sugar
    1 t vanilla

    Mix sugar with nuts. Beat egg whites until stiff. Add sugar-nut mixture and vanilla to egg whites. Separate dough into 3 equal parts. Roll out from 1/2 to 1/8 inch thin. Spread softened butter over dough. Put filling over this and roll as for a jelly roll. Let rise for 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree overn for 30-35 minutes. When cool, or slightly warm, frost with a glaze of 1 T butter, confectioner’s sugar and water.

    We love pletta. The main ingredient in pletta is eggs. Pletta is tiny little crepe like pancakes that are cooked in a pletta pan. We eat them with powdered sugar drizzled with lemon or lime juice. So yummy. Our kids friends like sleeping over cause they know they will get pletta in the morning.

    Megan says:

    My favorite might be deviled eggs — LOVE them. I like to sprinkle a little curry powder on mine. Also, I love scrambled eggs with a little olive oil and brown sugar mixed in. It sounds weird, but someone I knew made them for us once, and they were REALLY good.

  42. 192
    Deirdre U says:

    I know it sounds easy, but I make a mean Eggs Benedict. To poach an egg perfectly takes patience and skill. I also make my hollandaise sauce from scratch and serve it over a toasted sourdough round, applewood smoked bacon, and that perfect poached egg. My husband loves when I serve this for breakfast!

    Mami2jcn says:

    Dani Johnson says:

    My favorite egg recipe calls for ALOT of eggs. It is an egg bake with sausage and cream and cheese. You put in 18 eggs. Pour the cream over the top and it turns into a custard when it bakes. Yum!!

  48. 198
    Nichole L. says:

    Every Christmas morning, my mom makes an egg-bake casserole. It is made with sausage, cheese, bread and eggs. My entire family loves it!

  49. 199
    Whitney says:

    Wow! Lots of gourmet readers. My family is happy to just have eggs for breakfast, although sometimes for a treat we have them for dinner with some turkey bacon and cheese.

  50. 200
    Jody says:

    I LOVE Egglands Best and have been using them for years. My husband, who is a chef, insists on having them in the house. They are best, in my humble opinion, ANY WAY. Soft boiled, fried, poached…I do not use them in baking since you don’t taste egg but you cannot beat the taste when you are having eggs!
