Look for eggs that come from pasture-raised chickens. The grass diet gives the yolks a deep, orange color and a rich flavor. Choose eggs that are free of cracks. Farm-fresh eggs are loaded with Vitamin E and essential omega-3 fatty acids. Their freshness means more fluffy omelets, frittatas, cakes and a rich flavor that can’t be beat.
Eggs will keep up to 30 days from the time they are laid. Store your eggs in the refrigerator.
Eggs are one of the few foods that are delicious at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Jazz up scrambled eggs with fresh goat cheese, mushrooms and onions, chives and sour cream, tomatoes and herbs or spinach. Take egg salad to the next level by adding dill. Eggs poached in tomatoes and served with crusty bread makes for a classic Italian supper.
