Eggs have taken a bad rap in the United States for decades now, although the Federal Government is changing it’s collective mind once again.  But, if you can cook eggs, you will never go hungry. They are  readily available, affordable, and a nearly nutritionally perfect food.

Eggs are one of the easiest foods to cook, once you have mastered a few basic techniques. You can whip up breakfast, lunch or dinner or a snack any time you like. It is essential to have a non-stick pan or a very well seasoned cast iron pan, to cook eggs successfully. Eggs can stick like glue to untreated stainless steel.

Here are some of our recipes to get you started:
