Fascinating Egg Facts and Egg Recipes

April 17, 2015

I always have a big box of eggs in my fridge. I find them so versatile and use them all the time. There are so many quick and easy meals that can be made with eggs when you are in a hurry. An omelette with salad is one of my favourites, so easy to make when you are tired. Eggs also make an appearance in many of the cakes I bake and some fruit breads. They also make excellent sandwiches when cooked and hard boiled eggs are great for taking on picnics. I use eggs so often I decided to see if I could dig up a few facts about them and these are some of the things I found out.

Before cooking with eggs you should be aware that a small percentage of people will have an egg allergy, so you you are cooking for guests you should check if there is anything they are unable to eat before hand.

  1. Some very useful tips here Alison, I’ll definitely remember the boiled egg one as I recently cracked upon an egg that I thought was boiled – however it wasn’t!

  2. Pretty sure I’d have a disaster if I tried the egg spinning. I’m accident prone so regardless of how heard I tried I’m pretty sure one would end up going splat everywhere!

    300 eggs a year? poor things… I meant to do an egg post before Easter, even got all the photos collected in a file, but never had a chance to write up, maybe next year. Your egg recipes are all delish!

  4. Your egg facts really are very interesting! I love your recipes too, huevos rancheros especially. When I worked in a Turkish restaurant they did a very similar dish of baked eggs with spicy lamb sausage. Such a great combo!
