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. 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.

    Breakfast Pizza! Got a package of crescent rolls to use as the dough, scamble 5 eggs, pour over the dough, add hashbrowns, cheddar cheese, sausage and some parmesan cheese. Bake until bubbly!

  7. Cat

    My fav. egg recipe is an egg bake my Grandma used to make…I still need to get the recipe from her. I do know it had a whole lot of eggs, crumbled sausage, cheese, and bread chunks on top and you leave it in the fridge over night. It is SO GOOD! I have tried a lot of these now that I live 12 hours from “home” but just can’t get it just like Grandma’s.

  8. Miss Grace

    I’m not a big egg eater myself, but it’s just about the only source of protein I can sell my 4-year-old on. He takes them scrambled or overhard (with the yolks broken)

  9. Kat

    My boyfriend isn’t one for breakfast but with my fast and easy egg recipe its one meal he never misses. Its foundation is a piece of toast (I prefer sourdough), I bit of mustard for a little tang, a slice of salami or peperoni (which ever we have that week), A slice of Swiss cheese for me pepper jack for him, topped off with a over easy egg.

    Its so fast and easy. Its also very customizable for everyone’s taste. Everyone also goes crazy for my mini quiches.

  10. Melissa

    My absolutely favorite thing to eat with eggs is simple, a fried egg sandwich. My dad made them for me as a child and now I make them for my family. I just love how simple and great eggs can be!

  11. Ashley

    I love plain old scrambled eggs. I always buy Egglands Best eggs after my mom pointed out all of their added benefits. My husband and I like to add garlic salt and cheddar cheese to our eggs! So yummy- I am getting hungry now! Please enter me!

  12. Jessie

    I try to eat low carb, so eggs are a large part of my diet. My favorite is a simple omelette, made with a dash of dill, steamed asparagus and goat cheese.

    My favorite recipe is to make sunny side up eggs with extra butter, breaking the yolk and mixing it with soy sauce and butter and finally eating it with a baguette 🙂

  17. Kenna

    My favorite recipe currently is an egg scramble with fresh veggies. I use broccoli, red pepper, and onions. Saute them in a little olive/vegetable oil and then scramble your eggs with the vegetables. Just before finishing, add some homemade salsa while cooking and then top the scramble off with more salsa! Easy and super fast dinner!
