    We use Eggland's Best because the are fresh! They whip up nicely and make a stable meringue. They are a healthy protein. Most people do not realize that Nevada is actually a dairy state. We are mostly thought of as a gambling Mecca. This is an easy recipe to increase. I have also skipped the pie crust and divided the batter into ramekins then a hot water bath. Baked until tooth pick comes out clean. cooled, topped with sanding sugar and made it into a cremebrulee.

    I consider Alaskan king crab as one fine delicacy from my home state. It should be paired with other good quality ingredients such as Eggland’s Best eggs. Choosing only the best makes sure the ultimate indulgence experience. I incorporate Eggland’s Best eggs by whipping up a batch of gougere ‘rolls’. Therefore, the crab gets the matching rich taste. To balance out the richness, I add Asian-style pickled vegetables which include Alaska-grown carrots.

    Hawaiians used to cook with the underground oven called an 'imu' which added earthy smoke to meats and seafood. That was the big inspiration for this dish. I wanted to show off both the simple beauty of eggs with local Hawaiian flavors. I chose to do a smoked deviled egg with spicy shrimp poke. (Poke is a Hawaiian seafood salad). The light deviled egg texture and the creamy egg-based aioli sauce is impossible to replace with other ingredients. It is easy to make, healthy, and delicious.

    In Montana, we are known for our excellent beef and wheat. No way I'm using anything but the best for the other ingredients in this recipe and that's why I chose Eggland's Best for the eggs that tie this recipe together. Living "In the Middle of Nowhere" USA, access to different flavors and cuisines can be very limited. I developed this recipe to satisfy a craving for Asian flavors, but keep true to more readily accessible Montana ingredients.
  • Ricotta Coddled Eggs with an Olive-Walnut Salsa

    The first 2 things that came to my mind when I thought about California crops were walnuts and olives. I was also inspired by a southern California egg dish called an "egg-slut." This is my take on the iconic breakfast, with a Mediterranean-California twist of Ricotta cheese, creamy eggs, and a light and crunchy olive-walnut salsa. High quality eggs are needed to ensure a perfectly creamy texture, and that's why Egglands Best are the only eggs for this recipe.

    When I use Eggland's Best eggs in any of my cooking, I am confident in their freshness and nutrition. I know they are local and go from farm to store in just a few days. And no other eggs are stamped with their brand, so Eggland's Best most be proud of what they produce. For this brunch dish and because I'm from Washington, I used the fruit we are known for, apples! This perfectly balanced sweet and savory dish is packed with nutrition and loved by all.

    Oregon is known best for our hazelnuts and pears as well as our wines. This combination of cheeses with the nuts and fruits is a bright and delicious brunch dish or even a main dish with a salad of choice. Egglands best eggs are a great compliment to this quiche adding their richness in both flavor and color. They enhance this dish proudly.
