I have been using Eggland’s Best eggs for a good while now, so when they contacted me with this opportunity to host a brunch and offered a fun giveaway for you guys, I jumped on it! I love brunch. It’s not breakfast, it’s not lunch…you can pretty much get away with anything for the menu. It’s a great time to change up those breakfast casseroles (like this Biscuit Breakfast Casserole), combine breakfast and lunch items, such as with breakfast pizzas, just let your imagination go. Unless your family is like mine…in which foods must be boring basic, non-spicy, and “normal”. If they found spinach in their breakfast casserole, they would fah-reak. *sigh*
Thankfully, I was able to come up with a few dishes that were winners all around. That’s one of the great things about eggs, they are so versatile! I’m so thankful that my son is no longer allergic to eggs as it has opened up a whole new world in the way of menu planning! Since we eat so many dishes with eggs now (we also LOVE breakfast for dinner…brinner?) it is nice to know that Eggland’s Best eggs offer more than your ‘average egg’. They have 10 times more vitamin E; double the amount of omega-3’s; twice the amount of vitamin D; 3 times more vitamin B12; 25% less saturated fat and 38% more lutein. I know, wow!
So what eggs-tremely (haha, couldn’t resist) delicious dishes did I serve?
