This Week: Eggs

Not just a breakfast food, eggs are one of the more ubiquitous and important ingredients that we use, whether in baking, classic French sauces, salads, or as snacks. Filled with nutrients, amino acids, minerals and vitamins, they are also one of the more nutritious foods that we can eat and an excellent source of protein, especially for vegetarians. One caveat though is that egg yolks contain a high level of cholesterol, so many nutritionists suggest limiting egg intake to 2-3 per day. (You can always use just egg whites to eliminate this worry.)

For cooking, fresh eggs are best, whereas older eggs should be used for boiling or baking. One trick to test the freshness of eggs is to place them in a bowl of water: Younger eggs will stay straight up, while older ones will fall to the side. 

Enjoy our recipes for everyday eggs below, and please share your favorite go-to egg dishes with us.
