  • Butterscotch Meringue Cake

    Whenever I serve this, everyone gives me compliments on it! It's fun to make for everyday or special occasions. I love that eggs are a staple in nearly every home, so it's easy to have the ingredients on hand. Eggland's Best eggs don't even compare to other eggs. They taste better and have tons of extra nutrients!
  • Toffee Carrot Cobbler Cake With Brown Sugar Cream

    I received compliments when I served this pudding type cobbler, especially when my husband’s favorite dessert is carrot cake. I use Eggland's Best eggs in all my baking and breakfast recipes. There is definitely a difference in taste from ordinary eggs, especially since I was raised on a farm and we had fresh eggs.
  • Cowboy Lasagna Giddy-Up's

    This "cowboy" spin on lasagna brings out flavors of the Midwest. My family raises pork, so it is a great way to use meat in our freezer. This recipe is a hearty, nutritious dinner. I love that Eggland's Best eggs can complement any pork cut for a healthy and delicious meal.
  • Sweet Fig Jam, Bacon and Toasted Walnut Skillet Bread

    Sweet fig jam, salty bacon and toasted walnuts on a cheesy bread crust...this appetizer is loved by all ages, and, since our family is multigenerational, it is the perfect appetizer! Having grown up on an egg farm, I am very particular about the eggs I choose for my family. I make most of our meals from scratch, and I love knowing that Eggland’s Best USDA Certified Organic eggs are the best eggs money can buy. They add another level of nutrition to the many meals I serve my family.
  • Blissful Banana bread

    I almost always have a loaf of this bread ready for the kids. Its nutritious and they love it. Quick snack and great way to use up ripe bananas.
  • Blueberry Lemonade Scones

    IndianaJennifer N.
    My welsh Grandmother is from England and this scone recipe after its modifications can really date back to the early 1500's. What's better than Tea and Biscuits with history? When you cherish something so precious, you can only use nothing but the best, adding creamy flavor and nutrition to your morning cup of tea, coffee or milk. Eggland's Best eggs are by far the best to this testament of history and taste.
  • Hungarian Chicken and Dumplings

    MichiganDonna B.
    This is my version of my husband’s Hungarian grandmother’s recipe. The chili pepper was not in his grandma's original recipe though and was actually added by accident when I had thought I had grabbed the paprika. However, we found that it made a good dish even better! It's our family’s BEST favorite main dish recipe! Eggland’s Best eggs are my family’s favorite because we think they taste best and I prefer them best because they have more nutrition and vitamins than other eggs!
  • Mexican Street Corn (Elote) Fries with Poached Eggs and Roasted Poblano Hollandaise
    Mexican Street Corn (Elote) Fries with Poached Eggs and Roasted ...
    NebraskaLynn A.
    Love elote fries... and thought to myself how they could be transformed for a fun and unexpected dish with a zippy take on the expected traditional hollandaise, poached eggs and home fries that can stand on its own as a main course entrée (this is amazing and can't wait to serve it). Eggland's Best eggs are a part of my "every day" routine; I have an egg every morning to start the day with a good dose of protein that keeps hunger at bay as I venture into my day.
  • Crispy BLT Deviled Egg Boats

    MinnesotaPatrice H.
    From 3 to 93, everybody loves this easy-to-grab, little hand-held snack. A tray of these beautiful, crispy Deviled Eggs are guaranteed to disappear quickly from any appetizer table. I’ll put up Eggland's Best eggs in a blind taste test any day! The first time I made my husband Poached Eggs with EB eggs, he noticed. He commented on the quality, taste and height of the eggs - unsolicited! I instantly knew that the little red EB logo was the seal of approval for all of my cooking and baking needs.
  • Berry Exciting French Toast Panzanella
    Berry Exciting French Toast Panzanella
    IllinoisRobbin W.
    Family Brunch just got “berry eggciting”! A fun and healthy way to serve up “egglicious” French toast and mixed berries, panzanella style. There's even yogurt in the egg batter. The finished dish has toasted French toast cubes, crunchy granola, sticky maple glaze, almonds and fresh berries. I buy Eggland's Best eggs because it’s important to me to serve my family healthy, nutritional eggs that yield the most vitamins, less saturated fat and provide the best flavor to our family dishes.
