Egg recipe roundup

Great ways to enjoy this versatile nutritional powerhouse!

In addition to being packed with vitamins and minerals, eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. Another great thing about eggs is that they last a really long time in the fridge – most experts suggest at least 4 – 5 weeks from when they are gathered. There’s also an easy way to test if your eggs are still safe to eat: put them (still in the shells) in a bowl of cold water – if they sink to the bottom and lay flat on their sides, they’re very fresh. If they sink but stand on one end at the bottom of the bowl, they’re older but still perfectly safe to eat. If the eggs float, toss ’em out. Here are some of my favourite ways to enjoy eggs, in case you’re looking for some new ideas. Click on the titles to jump to the recipes.
