Hi Everyone! It’s Gourmet Sister (Michelle) back from an "egg-citing trip" to Silverton, Oregon and the Willamette Egg Farm (and I brought back some goodies for you!). The folks at the Good Egg Project flew me out to tour an egg farm run by the Satrum family. I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the hen houses. It still smelled like animals, but those were some happy chickens. We got to see two different styles of organic, cage-free houses and then a traditional house. In each house the chickens were equally noisy and curious about their visitors.
Heat a 10” fry pan really hot. Beat 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons water in a bowl. When the pan is hot pour in the egg mixture. You know you pan is hot enough if the eggs immediately bubble. Then, dig and fill, as Howard says. Within a minute your omelet is completely ready to eat. Big Tip I learned: the residual heat keeps cooking the egg even when it has left the pan, so you have to stop a little early. I used to cook my omelets at least a minute on each side. No wonder my husband is so relieved.
Jeffrey Saad showed us how to cook several egg dishes. (All the recipes are off his website). Then, he patiently taught me how to flip a fried egg without a spatula. He even waited through all three eggs until I finally got it right. Jeffrey really makes cooking simple. I’m a new fan of his Pan Quiche recipe. What a great 10 minute dinner. A new egg fact—Don’t throw out the yolks. Half the protein is in the yolk. I used to only cook egg white scrambled eggs thinking I was avoiding fat. But, no, I was only wasting good protein.
And, eggs provide the most budget-friendly source of protein! If you're like me, we're all on a tight grocery budget. Eggs are a fantastic and inexpensive way to get your family the nutrients and protein they need. That's "egg-celent" news!
We are such huge fans of The Good Egg Project that we want to share some of the fun with you!
