EGGcellent Recipes Coming to ENC

put-an-egg-on-it

Are you ready for EGGciting new recipes? We are! This fall, the Egg Nutrition Center (ENC) challenged 13 food bloggers to show how they #PutanEggonit, by developing their own custom dishes! The results were 20 unique recipes that highlight eggs’ versatility, convenience and great taste. 

Adding an egg to various dishes is a culinary trend in restaurants across the country. And while many chefs add eggs for flavor, they may not realize they’re adding valuable nutrients as well. One large egg provides 6 grams of high-quality protein and varying amounts of 13 essential vitamins and minerals.1 Eggs also help improve absorption of fat-soluble vitamins2, making them an ideal pairing for nutritious foods such as vegetables and whole grains.

The recipe developers were food and nutrition bloggers from across the country. New York to San Francisco, these foodies cracked the code on delicious egg recipes. #PutanEggonit dishes are easy to prepare – making it possible for Americans to create restaurant quality meals in their own kitchen! Visit ENC’s new recipe page to try out these EGGcititing dishes, including:
