Don’t let cold days get you down this winter. Sure, it gets dark by 5 pm, which is a bummer, but the fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. Spice things up with some indoor exploration – with food! Experience flavors from around the world in new and exciting dinner dishes.
This year, the Incredible Egg launched the Dinner Eggs campaign, which proves that eggs aren’t just for breakfast anymore. It’s all about flipping people’s ideas about eggs and forever changing what’s possible for dinner. Based on research, we know that Americans struggle to think about eggs on any occasion other than breakfast. The Dinner Eggs campaign upends conventional wisdom and inspires people to look at eggs as a versatile, easy to prepare and delicious supper solution. If you missed it – you can watch the Dinner Egg “documentary” here.
How do you like your eggs? We partnered with the culinary wizards at Tastemade to create deliciously easy Dinner Egg dishes to turn your weeknights from blah to ahh this winter. And if these grey skies are leaving you craving the sun – that’s even more reason to enjoy dinner eggs! Eggs are one of the only foods that naturally contain vitamin D – which is great especially in the winter! Believe it or not, three-quarters of U.S. teens and adults are deficient in vitamin D. The so-called “sunshine vitamin” is critical for bone health and immune function.
So, shake off your winter blues and try these four eggcellent recipes from the chefs of Tastemade:
