Made it this morning for Easter breakfast. Excellent flavor with fresh herbs (I used chives, basil and rosemary) also used prosciutto, as recommended. Delicate flavor and because it is so thin,it had a nice crunchiness. I also used goat cheese for the first time... Delicious. I think, to keep casts down, I'll wait til summer to make again, so I can use my own garden herbs and try thin ham slices. But definitely a keeper. Presents nicely on the table.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's 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.
