There’s no other food that represents Easter quite like eggs. In honor of the upcoming holiday, our Animal Health team is celebrating one of their favorite animals – the egg layers – by sharing some of the best egg recipes.
Whether you’re looking for something to bring to your next potluck or just need a snack, our take on these traditional recipes are sure to impress.
A great appetizer for your holiday meal, these Deviled Eggs get a twist on the classic topping from Animal Health Field Specialist Cassie Krejci.
- 6 large eggs
- 3 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tsp yellow mustard / Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Place eggs in water for 10 minutes.
- Remove eggs from boiling water and place in a bowl of ice water.
- Peel eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Remove yolks. Place yolks in a small bowl and place egg whites on serving plate.
- Using a fork, mash the yolks with the mayonnaise, mustard, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
- Use a spoon to add the yolk mixture back to the center of each egg white.
- You can garnish the tops with a sprinkling of paprika for a traditional Deviled Egg flavor, but my favorite garnish involves chopped bacon, chives, and a hint of cayenne pepper.
Fried Egg Sandwich
When he’s looking for something other than the obvious hard-boiled, Production Animal Account Representative Braxton Whitaker likes to whip up a classic fried egg sandwich.
- 2 pieces of white bread
- 1 slice of American cheese
- 2 tbsp of butter
- 2 eggs
- Optional: 1-2 pieces of ham or turkey
- Butter bread and toast it in the oven or a toaster for 1-2 minutes
- Fry/scramble the eggs in a heated pan with your remaining butter to your preference (I usually make a mini omelet)
- Put cooked eggs on to toasted bread
- Heat ham/turkey on the pan for 30 seconds
- Add meat to your sandwich
- Add cheese and the other piece of toast
Got a sweet tooth? We’ve got you covered. Eggs are the base for several sweet treats.
Bread pudding requires a lot of eggs (expert note: it’s better with cinnamon and raisins!). While Production Animal Account Representative Stewart Milton likes this bread pudding recipe from Paula Dean, she prefers her grandmother’s corn pudding recipe.
