Boiled and poached and scrambled, oh my! The possibilities for egg preparation are endless and because the average American eats 268 eggs a year, why not give some new cooking methods a try? While scrambling or fried may be your go-to, there have been some eggscellent new and creative ways to #putaneggonit. With Easter, the ultimate egg holiday, just around the corner, it’s time to get cracking!
- Sheet Pan Eggs: Ever heard of eggs cooked on a sheet pan? Well hop on this trend soon because it’s catching steam. Just whisk, pour into a greased pan, bake and voila! Take it a step further and cut into squares to serve as the perfect egg sandwich.
- Shredded Eggs: Everyone loves cheese, but eggs are becoming the latest ingredient for a cheese substitute. Egg grating is a great technique to add texture to any meal. Simply boil an egg, grate it and sprinkle it on top of your favorites: tacos, pizza, or whatever your heart desires.
- Eggs in Clouds: Take sunny side up to the next level by trying this fun take on cooking eggs. Beat egg whites until stiff, then form them into little cloud nests to hold the egg yolks. Bake until egg whites turn golden brown and the yolk sets slightly and serve.
No matter how you prepare your eggs, they are an all-natural source of high-quality protein and a number of other nutrients, all for 70 calories per large egg. Scramble them for breakfast, get hardboiled for lunch and try sunny side up for dinner. Whatever you do, just put an egg on it!
