When it comes to healthy food for my family, fresh is best. For quick & healthy recipe ideas, you can’t get much easier than meals with fresh, local, high-quality eggs. Whether you like your eggs poached, fried, scrambled or as an ingredient in your favourite family recipe, you can rest easy knowing that each egg provides 14 essential nutrients. There are so many reasons to be #Thankful4Eggs!
Did you know that October 9th is World Egg Day? Yes, an entire day dedicated to this nutritious food! Here are just a few reasons to be #Thankful4Eggs and our Canadian Egg Farmers:
- eggs can be made into a nutritious meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner
- there are plenty of choices like classic white eggs, brown eggs, free range, free run, organic, omega3 and vitamin D enhanced
- eggs contain all 9 essential amino acids making them a complete source of protein
- with 14 essential nutrients in each egg, they are part of your healthy lifestyle
- eggs are affordable
- when you buy Canadian eggs, you are supporting local farmers in your community
- eggs are always local & fresh (from the farm to the store in less than a week!)
We’re celebrating eggs this month with an egg-citing giveaway and Twitter party! You’ll find the giveaway entry form and Twitter Party RSVP link below.
Eggs are the one food you will always find in our fridge. From healthy breakfast ideas to delicious cakes, we go through a lot of eggs around here! This Skillet Breakfast recipe wouldn’t be complete without a fried egg on top!
For this recipe, I start by making fresh chunky hashbrowns in my ActiFry. Don’t have an ActiFry? No problem! Another tasty way to make this recipe is with leftover baked potatoes. Simply slice those leftover potatoes and fry them with a little butter and pepper. Put the potatoes aside until your bacon and other vegetables are cooked.
- hashbrowns (about two large potatoes)
- 8 slices of bacon
- ½ cup onions, chopped
- 2 bell peppers, chopped
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
- ½ cup cheese, shredded
- 4 large eggs
- In a skillet, cook your bacon. Once cooked, chop it into bite-sized pieces and set it aside.
- Slice up some fresh vegetables like bell peppers, onions and mushrooms.
- With a little butter or vegetable oil, fry them (in that same frying pan) until they soften slightly but are still crunchy.
- Put the hashbrowns, vegetables and bacon all in the skillet and stir to mix.
- Sprinkle on some shredded cheese.
- In a separate frying pan, cook eggs over easy (one egg per serving). Place one fried egg over top of each serving.
