The Incredible Edible Egg – why they are good for you

Eggs are designed to sustain life and include many needed nutritional elements. Not only are they full of nutrition, but they also are easy to prepare, versatile, pair well with other ingredients, and with so many flavor profiles!

Why are eggs good for you? Eggs are satisfying and keep you full longer. This means you’re less likely to snack on empty calories. They are also one of the most nutritious single-food items you can eat.

  • A large whole egg contains 77 calories. The egg white has 6 grams of protein. The yolk has 5 grams of healthy fat.
  • The yolk is really the golden part of the egg not just in color, but in nutritional value. Not only does it have healthy fat, but it also has vitamin B12, Vitamin B2, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B5, as well as smaller amounts of vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, vitamin E, folate, and essential amino acids.
  • How hens are raised does impact the overall nutritional value of the egg. The best eggs come from hens that are pasteurized (allowed to roam outside their cages eating plants, insects, and commercial feed) or are omega-3 enriched (hens may or may not have outside access, but commercial feed has been enriched with omega-3 sources).
  • The color of the eggs shell doesn’t affect the nutritional value of the egg.

Egg packed recipes

Which recipes call for a lot of eggs? Many egg recipes only call for 1-2 eggs in order to make the recipe. Over easy, sunny side up, boiled, poached, a fried egg or a breakfast sandwich only requires 1 egg.

Scrambled eggs typically need at least 2, but can be made with more. Omelets and Quiches use 2-3 eggs per serving/recipe.

Other recipes require several eggs like Frittatas (about 6 eggs) and Oven Baked Eggs (about 12 eggs for a 9×13 pan), or a large batch of French Toast.

Egg Tips

How to tell if your eggs are still good: Eggs are typically good, even after the expiration date has passed. One super easy way to tell if your eggs are still good is the sink or float test:

  • Add 2 tbsp of salt in a glass with 2 cups of cold water. If the egg sinks it is OK to eat. If the egg floats, then it should be discarded.

Tips to remember when cooking egg recipes:

  • Whisk right before pouring, or the airy froth will simply disappear and you’ll have to re-whisk.
  • Don’t overcook.
  • Add plenty of seasoning.

different ways to cook eggs

Eggs are a wonderful breakfast food. They pair well alongside many other dishes or they can stand alone as a main dish. They can also be prepared in many different ways.

Here are 10 popular methods:

  • Scrambled Eggs – whisk the egg and pour it into a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Flip and cut eggs until done. I like adding cheddar cheese to my scrambled eggs.
  • Hard-boiled – Hard boiling your egg means the yolk is cooked through. This takes about 8-12 minutes.
  • Soft boil – Soft boiling means the egg whites are partially cooked, like a custard, and the yolk is warm and runny. This only takes 4-5 minutes of boiling.
  • Omelet – Whisk the egg and pour it into a warm pan. Allow the bottom to cook enough to fold it in half. Often savory ingredients like chives, cheese, crumbled bacon, or sausage are added before folding. Traditionally, each omelet is a single serving, but I cut them in half for my younger kids.
  • Over easy – Don’t whisk the egg, instead crack the egg into the pan and cook. When done, flip and cook the other side. The whites will cook and the yolk will be warm and runny.

  • Sunny side up – Is a classic egg recipe. Crack an egg into a pan and only cook one side.
  • Poached egg – Bring water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Crack an egg into the water and let it cook.
  • Baked egg – Whisk several eggs together and pour them into a pan. The egg mixture can be baked alone or have savory items added like bacon, cheese, and fresh herbs.
  • Frittata is similar to an omelet but the additional ingredients are mixed in with the eggs instead of just being folded into the middle. Each frittata is cooked in a skillet in one large piece. Once cooked it is cut and can typically serve several people.
  • Quiche is a mixture of eggs, dairy, and other savory ingredients which are then poured into a shallow pie crust and baked in the oven.
