The Week of Eggs

July 26, 2010

On our way home from Missouri yesterday, we stopped at the egg lady’s house. There is literally a woman who lives right on the outskirts of town where we stayed, and when she has fresh eggs, she puts out an Eggs for Sale sign in her front yard. We got there just as her and her adorable little husband were leaving for church. When she heard we were in from out of town and hoping for some fresh farm eggs, she went and gathered 4 dozen eggs while her husband entertained us. I split the eggs with my mom and brother and ended up with 2 dozen freshly laid eggs for $2.00. Can’t beat that! Thank you Egg Lady. ๐Ÿ™‚

Since Chris and I will be leaving this coming weekend for our Babymoon, I’m trying really hard not to go to the grocery store this week. So, the eats should be interesting, and they will include lots of eggs…starting with my dinner last night…

Please send me your favorite egg-o-licious recipes. I’m thinking I need to make custard oats. What’s your favorite way to prepare them? Also, any good frittata recipes out there? I seem to always scorch the bottom of mine.

Before I head to my favorite vinyasa yoga class, I have some important things to share with you.

First off, would you like to win a bottle of Extra Virgin Pressed Avocado Oil?

Jessica has started a site called Give Away One Thing A Day. She will be doing daily giveaways both to visitors (weekdays) and charities (weekends). Visitors who win the daily giveaways will be asked to pay it forward by giving away an item of their own and then sharing the story with the site. The goal is to create a fun, interesting, and heartwarming site about living lighter, one day at a time. Cool concept, no? To help Jessica bring more awareness to Give Away One Thing A Day, I’ve offered to help her out by hosting a giveaway here at HEAB. So, for a chance to win the bottle of avocado oil pictured above, there are three ways you can enter:

1) Leave a comment on this post.

2) Tweet about the giveaway and leave a comment below saying you did so.

3) Link to the giveaway on your own blog and leave a comment below saying you did so.

I’ll leave the comments open for 24 hours, and Jessica will post the winner on Give Away One Thing A Day tomorrow. Thanks guys!

Secondly, don’t forget to enter my Maranatha Nut Butter Giveaway as it ends tonight at midnight (CST).

Thirdly, if you get a chance, please check out my guest post, Love, Marriage, and Hamburgers over at Maggie’s blog. Maggie, many congrats on your marriage this past weekend! So excited for you and Bobby. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for eggs, I have been loving them fried on top of things like chicken tacos, pasta and tortillas.

    I looove eggs. This morning I had savory oats with onions and a poached egg on top. I also love doing scrambles like what you had last night. Poached is definitely my favorite way to have ’em!

    I’ve never tried avocado oil, but I certainly would love to see how it tastes

  13. July 26, 2010 8:28 am

    I think the key to frittatas is when you are cooking on the stove top to turn down the skillet to medium/medium low once you add the eggs. You don’t need to have the pan super hot at that point because you will completely set the eggs in the oven anyway.

    Frittatas are so yummy, they are my go-to dish when I want eggs. Here is my favorite frittata I’ve ever made: http://iseemonsters.typepad.com/tv_and_dinners/2010/06/hey-summer-how-you-doin.html

  21. July 26, 2010 8:40 am

    I’ve never even heard of avocado oil! I want some ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh, and egg recipes: STRATA! I made the vegan version w/tofu and it was sooooo good so I figure the traditional egg version would be good too ๐Ÿ˜€

    I was just glancing over the last part and read “Love, Margarine, and Hamburgers”. I’ve had coffee and it’s not terribly early in the morning. I’ve no excuses for this one….ha ๐Ÿ™‚

    For some reason runny egg yolks over mashed potatoes sounds yummy….

  23. July 26, 2010 8:44 am

    Monica, Not sure as I don’t think I’ve ever actually had avocado oil. However, I’m thinking not as I hear the taste is pretty mild.

  24. July 26, 2010 8:46 am

    Wow, that is a steal for fresh eggs! I feel like I might not be entirely outcast/crazy for saying here that one of my favourite things about Nigella Lawson’s show is that the eggs she uses are so high quality that the yolks are practically amber.
    I hope you guys have a wonderful babymoon! My sister and brother in law spent theirs in France, Belgium, Syria and Jordan. Not a bad reason to have a baby. Just kidding!

    Tortilla Espanola is perfect for eggs. Parboiled potatoes (sweet potatoes work too), diced onion and anything else you want to add sauteed and then covered in eggs until they set around then edges and the put under the boiler. It was my favorite thing in Spain and the make it in many flavors. And it tastes great cold the next day.

    Jaya, No, you’re not crazy at all. I’ve heard a good quality egg always has a really dark yolk.

    Glad your shower trip was so good!

  36. July 26, 2010 9:13 am

    My all time favorite egg recipe has to be omelets. That’s my go to recipe when we don’t have very much in the house or I’m too tired to cook anything extravagant. Lately I’ve enjoyed homemade vanilla pudding though.

    Thanks for hosting this. Its a great idea!

    That’s a steal for good quality eggs! I bought some local eggs a few weeks ago. I had some mass produced store bought generic eggs in my fridge, and I cracked open one of each. The local egg yolk was almost orange! And the taste is incredible. The local egg yolk was much smoother/kind of buttery tasting. I try to get local eggs whenever I can – good for the planet, good for my palate ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite way to have eggs is scrambled with sauteed onion and green bell pepper. I have black beans on the side (in an adobo sauce) and toast some corn tortillas on a medium heat griddle. I may just have this for dinner tonight!

    I just made a pizza and the crust was made out of 5 egg whites. I wasn’t sure how it would be but it was pretty tasty. I cooked the egg whites until done in the plan, topped it with tomato sauce that was seasoned with oregano and basil, roasted veggies and cheese. I put it under the broiler until the cheese was melted. Delicious! let me know if you give it a try.

    I love eggs!! The only problem is I never use a recipe. I ALWAYS make what’s ever in the fridge scrambled eggs. This is usually my way of using up veggies that are going bad. However, reading everybodys ideas has kind of inspired me…..kind of, when you have a good thing going it is hard to change.

    EGGS! A.k.a, chicken periods.

    As I learned from Sophia, nothing beats a good poached egg on top of ANYTHING.

    You can also mix cooked eggs with goat yogurt for custardy stuff. Actually, what I’ve done is created a little “egg cake” in the microwave (you could probably do it on the stove too), out of one egg (or two whites), then once it’s cooled, topped it with yogurt or cottage cheese and put it on toast. With any flavorings/sweeteners you’d like, of course. Haha, plain would be kind of gross.

    Oh, and BANANA frittata! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Banana-Frittata/Detail.aspx

    For more savory, I’ve made this baby with kabocha, and it was brilliant: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pumpkin-Spinach-and-Feta-Frittata/Detail.aspx

    I actually made one of my favorite egg dishes just yesterday for my pregnant sister. ๐Ÿ™‚ I did this quick meal often while I was living in China, since English-labeled grocery selection was scarce. Just grate a zucchini/yellow squash (or 2) until shredded and sautee in a bit of oil, garlic powder, oregano, S&P, then scramble in an egg (or 2…or 4). It’ll be watery from the squash, but I just pour it out of the skillet while holding the mixture back with a lid. Top with cheese of your choice (parm is nice) and that’s it!

    For custard oatmeal, I think the last time I did it, I stirred in the egg in the last minute of cooking or so, then turned off the heat, covered and let it stand for a couple minutes to custard-ify.

    Enjoy your eggs, whatever you end up doing. ๐Ÿ˜€

  88. July 26, 2010 1:31 pm

    I love avocados and would really like to try avocado oil, I never had it before.
    Regarding eggs, my favorite way to enjoy them are scrambled with cheese, tomatoes and herbs (basil, parsley, oregano, or dried italian mixed herbs). I sautee some onions and garlic then I add chopped tomatoes, cook for a minute, season everything with salt and pepper and in goes some beaten eggs. I then scramble it quickly until almost done and add cheese. Parmesan is a favorite, as is goat cheese or even american cheese (it melts beautifully but doesn’t get stringy, which I like!). Done, put it on a plate and enjoy with a big salad, roasted veggies (I love having broccoli as a side with eggs!) or put the scramble in a tortilla (and a bit more cheese maybe), also yummy!
    Another way I like eggs is in a frittata! The key is not get the stove too hot. I like to sautee lots of veggies with garlic until they are starting to get soft but not too soft (I like using red peppers, spinach, tomatoes, corn, and I looove peas – the sweet green frozen ones – with eggs, either in the scrambled eggs or in a frittata, for some reason peas are really good with eggs, imo at least!). Sometimes I add leftover roasted chicken pieces to the veggies if I have on the fridge, they go well with the eggs too. Then I add beaten eggs to the sauteed veggies and mix gently to get everything together. Let it sit for a minute, run a spatula around the edges and let the unscrambled egg ooze on the surroundings of the pan.
    As the whole thing starts to set I sprinkle it with a good dose of parmesan cheese (or another cheese I have, sometimes goat cheese, sometimes mozzarella) and put the pan under the broiler to finish cooking and setting the eggs. It takes about a couple of minutes or so, keep a close eye on the thing as broilers can burn things pretty quickly!
    I love making frittatas with tons of veggies inside, then I have it with a salad and some brown rice it is a complete meal!
    I like the looks of your scrambled eggs Heather, I love eggs with spinach and tomatoes, major yum!

    Eggwise (what a fun thing to say!), I have been loving on some black bean and mozz omlets. Thanks to you, dear Heather, I was tempted to try my hand at omlet making…according to my husby I have become quite the master. I think this Wednesday, which is Saturday for us, I will try a sweet omlet.
    Enjoy your babymoon!!!! If I’d known such a thing existed, we would’ve gone on one before West came along. Safe travels!

    Sarah, Yes, you can. Never tried avocado oil myself, but I hear good things about it.

    Avocado oil sounds interesting; I saw it at Whole Foods just a few days ago and was intrigued. ๐Ÿ™‚

  127. July 26, 2010 4:55 pm

    When you get fresh eggs like this, I think the best way to enjoy them is straight up either fried, (runny) or poached (runny) on top of toast so you can actually taste the freshness and quality of the egg. Nothing beats these types of eggs. Going from our eggs at home (that we buy like 10 dozen at a time from a family outside of Tucson, just yesterday the family came over to hand deliver them, my family is craaazy I will say that) to the cheap-o eggs by the flat at school– there’s simply no comparison. The average eggs don’t taste like anything!

    Or I’d make egg salad, boiled eggs, or a frittata, etc. to enjoy the flavor of the yolk. 2$ though- that is cheap. Farmer’s markets go for like 5$/dozen, it is crazy.

  128. July 26, 2010 5:18 pm

    I love eggs! Your egg lady story sounds sweet. =)

    I think my favorite way to eat eggs is to mix it in with my porridge. It makes it extra protein-y and creamy. So good. ๐Ÿ˜€

  129. July 26, 2010 5:29 pm

    Avo oil, would love some!

    Egg lady…love that story! There’s an egg lady that goes to the farmer’s market (which is across the street from my house! every Sunday). Too bad I dont eat eggs b/c everyone raves about her eggs. Nothing beats eggs from chickens who can forage for bugs and worms and are raised with love, not in cages. It’s not even the vegan in me that has egg issues…it’s my darn food allergies. Anyway so glad you scored!

    July 26, 2010 5:36 pm

    Looks so delicious, I wonder how high temps it can take. I’m sure it would be good enough on salads.

  131. July 26, 2010 5:55 pm

    Beeks, You can’t really beat poached eggs on toast, and yeah, I was super excited to get the eggs for $1/dozen!!! I love your family by the way and don’t think y’all are crazy at all! ๐Ÿ™‚

  132. July 26, 2010 5:57 pm

    Sara, I’ve read avocado is best for high heat cooking: sauteing, frying, cooking, etc.

    Eggs! I’m on a total egg kick right now. I eat “Western Eggs” (aka Toad In A Hole) every single day. No lie. I love dipping the toast into the runny yolk. Served with a side of either roasted broccoli or green beans. Happy baby belly. xo

  141. July 26, 2010 6:48 pm

    I love eggs. A definite perk to raising chickens is having them right outside your kitchen, freshly laid (and usually still a little poopy). Ah, the farm.
    I acknowledge this might sound a little odd, but when I was in Poland, the woman I stayed with would make up the dough for sourdough or rye bread, and when it was finished rising, shaped and ready to bake, she would stuff in some barely-hard boiled (and de-shelled) eggs and cover ’em with dough. When the bread was done, each slice had hard-boiled goodness in it, and even though I thought I was adverse to eggs in general, that was some seriously good eating, especially when combined with sweet and sour cabbage!
    From Poland to you, with love ๐Ÿ™‚

  142. July 26, 2010 6:49 pm

    Mandy, Runny yolk plus toast was my favorite breakfast when I was young. My mom used to butter the toast and cut it all up for me – no one makes it like my mama! ๐Ÿ™‚
