A few weeks ago I was contacted by Eggland’s Best eggs to try their product and see how I like it! After receiving an amazing package in the mail, I got to work!
Last weekend I had a few people over! Too bad none of them were over 7!!! Who better to have breakfast on a Sunday morning with than my favorite group of boys! (and my firend Nicola!)
On to breakfast! I had seen a few recipes I wanted to try. One was a Carmelized French Toast from the Food Network Magazine, and one was an egg casserole I make on a regular basis. The French toast was easy!
Simply cut a loaf of sourdough. The recipe says to cut a round loaf into wedges. After having made the recipe, I liked cutting it into slices better. It seemed to absorb the egg mixture better. The other thing is the recipe uses buttermilk. I really liked the slightl flavor it gave, and the richness in the bread. When you cook the bread, you sprinkle each side with powdered sugar. As it cooks, it caramelizes and creates a beautiful crispy crust.
The egg casserole is a recipe I have used for a long time. Again, start with bread! Tear up half a loaf of Italian bread and put it into a 9×13-inch pan. Top with choice of veggies and meat, and pour over an egg mixture. Top with cheese and bake!
Both recipes are super easy, and I was glad I chose these to use Eggland’s Best eggs in. I have always loved their eggs, simply because of the beautiful color of the yolks. They are like sunshine in the pan! They were great with the buttermilk from the French toast, they just added to the richness. When it came to the egg casserole, the eggs were showcased, and they stood up to the challange!
When cutting into the egg casserole, it had a nice creamy, rich texture and flavor. When combined with peppers, onions and cheese, they were perfect!
