I made this for a baby shower brunch. Everyone was surprised about the apple but really liked it. I didn't add the nutmeg but I think it would be really good with it. I was just afraid that not everyone would like it.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

The Safest Choice™ patented, all natural, award-winning egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before the eggs even enter your kitchen. Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs are perfect for: sunny side up eggs, poached eggs, soft scrambled eggs, omelets, Tiramisù, Caesar salad dressing, Hollandaise sauce, mousse, homemade mayonnaise, homemade ice cream…and licking the spoon when you bake.

SafeEggs

The Raw Egg Risk

Safest Choice™ Eggs aren't just good for sunny side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
