We are an egg loving family.

Boiled, scrambled, in a sandwich, on top of waffles, or even on a burger – it really doesn’t matter. We like them any and every way.

Which is why I’m so excited that I will be working with The American Egg Board to support The Good Egg Project over the next year and talking about all things eggs.

And what better way to kick the whole thing off than by celebrating World Egg Day? Yep, today is World Egg Day. I love when I have a whole day to celebrate one of my favorite foods! There are so many reasons to love the humble egg. Did you know that eggs are one of the highest quality proteins available? Packed with nine essential amino acids, they are a power food to help you grow and perform. There is a reason why body builders love eggs! High quality protein can also help you to lose weight, they give you energy, and may even help prevent macular degeneration (a leading cause of age-related blindness.) If that doesn’t give you reason enough to get excited about eggs, just think about how fast and easy they are to prepare, plus at only $0.15 each, they are very budget friendly. Egg meals are what we always turn to when we are looking for a fast and cheap meal!!

America’s egg farmers also love to give back to their communities through the Good Egg Project, teaching about where eggs come and helping to fight childhood hunger. For more information about the Good Egg Project, visit http://www.incredibleegg.org/good-egg-project.

I’m not sure who likes eggs the most in my family. Abbi is a boiled egg addict. I’ve never seen a 4 year old put them down like she does. She will sometimes just ask for boiled eggs for a meal, and eat 4 of them in one sitting – nothing else. All through college, I survived on scrambled eggs, tortillas and salsa. And when I got married, my husband taught me the simple joy of a simple sunny side up egg.

And since it’s World Egg Day, what better way to celebrate than with a globally-inspired egg dish? I love baked eggs. Seriously love them. These eggs are baked in “nest” of potatoes, cheese, and taco seasoning. This is one of the easiest meals – even for the craziest of mornings. I think this would make the perfect dish if you have company, as well. Hands on time is so little, and then they just go into the oven to bake. It really doesn’t get much easier.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, eggs are a great (and inexpensive!) choice!

    Hi, fellow egg ambassador. Too funny, Lenny was showing me this photo over on IG, and I was like I know that recipe! WE love eggs, and will definitely be giving this a try. We both loved the idea of a hash brown nest! Perfect brunch food!

    This is right up my alley 🙂 I love this recipe and I know my husband will too!

  12. Lacey says:

    I tried this but my eggs were not cooked enough– inside the white was still uncooked/slimy. Then I put back in but ended up overcoming. Need to find the happy medium.

    • Deborah says:

      Sometimes it just takes getting to know your oven and how long to cook the eggs. I hope it works out better next time!!

  13. Kristi says:

    Do you think these would freeze well after cooking? Looking for quick school-morning breakfasts. Thanks!

    • Deborah says:

      I have never tried freezing eggs that are cooked like this, but I’d be afraid they would get gummy when thawed. But it’s worth a try!
