Eggsceptional Eggs and a Find at the Thrift Store


Posted by Cassie

Now that we are getting about 4 eggs a day from our four hens, we have had to get extra creative with how we use eggs. When I talk about our eggs, I feel like the scene in Forrest Gump talking about shrimp. Here are a few of the foods we have tried to make (some more successfully than others):

Fried Eggs
-Over-easy, scrambled, sunny side up
Hard Boiled Eggs
Soft Boiled Eggs
Poached Eggs
Egg Drop Soup
Souffles
Meringue
Frittata
Denver (and other types) Omelet

Huevos Rancheros
Breakfast Burritos
Egg Sandwich
Raw Eggs (Britton, not me)
Egg Salad
Use in breads and cakes
Fried egg and Spaghetti (haven’t tried it, but found it in a recipe)

And of course deviled eggs, Britton’s  specialty.

We often bring deviled eggs to parties and they are usually the first things to go, but we never had an egg plate to put them on. So…we stopped by the thrift store the other day, picked up some clothes and I found an old 70′s egg platter, perfect for deviled eggs. Score! It’s kinda cool I think. After finding a mark on the back, we looked it up online and apparently the creator of the china, George Lefton company, is semi-famous. I love thrift stores! :-)

Egg Platter
Pretty cool for a dollar!

Can you think of any other meals we can make with eggs? We need all the ideas you can send us! Seriously.
