The Incredible Edible Egg...sorry, egg council, I stole your saying!

February 13th, 2011 at 01:31 pm

Years ago eggs were advertised as the Incredible Edible Egg. Then came the harsh warnings that eggs were bad, bad, bad for you and that they will raise one's cholesterol to skyrocketing numbers.

Well, last week, a new finding is eggs aren't quite as wicked as they were once thought. Research says that since chickens are eating better feeds, the cholesterol isn't quite so high.

For all of you brinner (breakfast + dinner) fans, I bet I just heard a hoot and a holler.

Anyway, eggs are tasty not to mention cheap. Right now one grocery store is offering "Ten for ten" which is a buck a dozen of large eggs. That's less than a dime an egg!

I like a good casserole and one with eggs always seems to be a bonus at my house. My husband loves eggs.

I have been poring through cookbooks and think I found a new recipe that I'm going to try. Well, I've already made it and have it in the fridge to bake off later this week. It's from one of those church cook books, but no one's name is on it so I can't give credit to anyone.

Hash Brown Egg Bake
1 pgk shredded hash browns
1 1/2 c. diced ham
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 eggs, beaten
1 pt whipping cream
1/4 c green pepper chopped
1/8 tsp garlic salt
3 T butter

Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl. Add beaten eggs and stir. Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Top with butter pieces. Refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes.

Sounds like a hearty meal for brinner to me!

    sounds good, where do you incorporate the whipping cream?

  3. LuckyRobin Says:

    Hmm, I wonder how it would taste with sour cream instead of whipping cream? I have all the other ingredients on hand, and I have sour cream that needs using. I bet it would be good like that.

    I always roll my eyes when people say eggs are bad for you. They've known for about ten years that dietary cholesterol has absolutely nothing to do with high cholesterol in the body.

    Plus the egg is about the most perfect protein source there is. The body can utilize 90% of its protein. The next closest are beef and chicken at 80%. Pork's clear down at 60%. I'll take healthy, yummy eggs any day.

    I bet the sour cream would be great...

    The whipping cream goes into the beaten eggs.

    The brinner wasn't original...I heard it on Scrubs and my husband said it's true.

    It's true, if chickens are allowed to roam around and eat bugs and the right kinds of plants, their eggs are amazing and they don't lead to those problems. Like any other animal, if you stick them in a tiny container, restrict their movement, and don't give them the insurance of good chow to eat, they aren't going to be very healthy! Anyway, that recipe sounds delicious... Smile Jerry

    Years ago, when growing up, we had free range chickens on our property...didn't call them that, but we let them wander around and eat stuff and I fed and watered them each day. Amazing how the processing of stuff changes stuff, isn't it. Thanks for responding, Jerry.
