Five Hot Breakfast Recipes for Cold Mornings >

On 02.21.2015 by Chantel Arsenault

February is hot breakfast month but with the record breaking cold temperatures across the country I doubt anyone needs a national food month to want to start their day with something warm and hearty. It's getting closer to the end of winter (hopefully!), so if you’re like me you might need some new hot breakfast ideas for inspiration. Below, I’ve rounded up of five hot and delicious breakfasts from the Safest Choice Eggs’ recipe center. It's been cold here in Chicago for awhile now so I’ve been making these recipes a lot lately. Buttermilk Pancakes Pancakes have always been a favorite of mine. Especially on a lazy weekend morning when it’s cold outside and I all I want to do is stay home in my pj's. Fresh buttermilk is the secret Read More >

Safest Choice Eggs are Kosher for Passover >

On 04.18.2011 by Chantel Arsenault

Passover begins tonight (Monday, April18) at sunset and will continue for eight days until April 26. Passover is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays and is probably the most food-centric. It starts with people gathering for the traditional seder meal and continues on throughout the week with family meals of matzo, hard-boiled eggs, fruits and vegetables, and treats such as macaroons and homemade candies. For the duration of Passover no leavened bread is eaten, making Matzo (flat unleavened bread) the primary symbol of the holiday. That also means that many people celebrating the holiday stock up on eggs since most Passover desserts rely on eggs for leavening, instead of flour, making sponge cakes popular every year during this week.

Breakfast Pizza for National Pizza Week >

On 01.13.2011 by Chantel Arsenault

This week, the second week in January 2011 is National Pizza Week. Having pizza week in January makes sense because three out of the top 10 weeks of pizza consumption occur this month. With more pizza being consumed Super Bowl week than any other week of the year. I have been interested in trying eggs on my pizza for awhile now. Since I have yet to find a restaurant near my Chicago neighborhood that makes a version of Pizza alla Bismark I did some searching online for a recipe. Smitten Kitchen's breakfast pizza was my inspiration. As my pictures show my recipe varied and due to the lack of a stand mixer my crust was a bit more rustic, but still delicious. Smitten Kitchen's recipe Read More >

The Yolk is No Joke >

On 12.20.2010 by Elizabeth McCauley

Eggs have a slightly bad reputation because they contain cholesterol and cholesterol is linked to heart disease. This misconception may keep some people from eating eggs and Safest Choice feels they are missing out on a valuable source of nutrition. It’s true — egg yolks do contain cholesterol, but that doesn’t actually mean they cause heart disease. The cholesterol that leads to artery-clogging atherosclerosis comes from two sources: diet and our own bodies. Dietary cholesterol shows up in animal products like meat, poultry, dairy products, and eggs.   In our own bodies, the liver produces cholesterol, and this is largely controlled by genetics. There are two kinds of blood cholesterol: High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL aka good cholesterol), and Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL aka bad cholesterol). What is bad is Read More >

Pumpkin Mousse – Made Safe >

On 10.25.2010 by Chantel Arsenault

Nothing says fall or Halloween quite like pumpkins. In honor of the orange gourd Safest Choice put our safe eggs to use by making a recipe found at The Nibble.com, a magazine about gourmet and specialty foods. While pumpkin pie may be the most popular pumpkin dessert we prefer this pumpkin mousse because with every light and airy spoonful the feeling of fall comes over you through the melding of the spices, orange zest and pumpkin. Also, it can be served in a number of fun ways. The Nibble suggested hollowing out mini-pumpkins or using champagne glasses to serve the mousse in. We used small and large glasses so the layers of mousse, whipped cream and chocolate chips could be seen. However you decide, there will be Read More >

At our office we answer phone calls from customers daily. They have questions regarding where they can find our eggs or about the pasteurization process. At the end of every conversation we offer to send coupons. One woman received her coupons and then sent us a very nice thank you note. In the note, Elaine said it was her “first time trying our eggs and they are great.” She then shared this delicious recipe that we will be trying this weekend. Thank you Elaine for the wonderful card and the recipe you included!

Last Friday the World Celebrated Eggs >

On 10.11.2010 by Chantel Arsenault

World Egg Day was declared as the second Friday in October during an International Egg Commission conference in Vienna, in 1996. According to the International Egg Commission website, the date is meant to be a “unique opportunity to help raise awareness of the benefits of eggs and is celebrated in countries all around the world. At Safest Choice we love an opportunity to help raise awareness of the benefits of eggs. A widely available food that is relatively inexpensive, contains 12 percent of the recommended daily value of protein, is packed with nutrients, vitamins and is low calories deserves a day of celebration! Eggs are also extremely versatile making them a perfect ingredient for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack or dessert. This ensures that an egg Read More >
