Eggs are on the menu!

This picture pretty much shows the amount of eggs we go through weekly. We purchase 10 dozen eggs a week from a local family who has free range chickens. At only 2.00 a doz. it is an expensive, good for you food that goes a long way. What more could you ask for?
To read about the benefits of eggs go HERE.

Some of the ways our eggs get used~
scrambled in cultured butter
fried in cultured butter
boiled for salads
breakfast burritos
fried egg sandwiches
egg on a bagel with cheese
the normal baking stuff
rice pudding
bread pudding
french toast
frittata such as the one below.
What are some ways you like to use eggs?

We served this with asparagus and cornbread!
Pizza Frittata
(fyi,we doubled it for our family and it barely was enough)

6 oz. softened cream cheese
6 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. each basil and oregano leaves
2 T. butter
1 1/2 C. chopped green peppers (we used black olives since I didn't have peppers)
24 slices chopped pepperoni

Beat cream cheese, eggs, salt and seasonings. Melt butter in 10 inch ovenproof skillet. Add vegetables, cook and stir 5 min. Add cream cheese mixture and stir well. Cover pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until the center is almost set. Then set under broiler for about 5 minutes until finished.

Too funny! I remember hearing a friend of mine tell that she went through 5 doz eggs a week (this is back when we had two children) and I could not believe it :-0 Now 10 doz is no big deal in our home either~

We keep chickens at our house but they are slowing down on laying right now. We will soon have to buy eggs until they pick up again. Needless to say, we love eggs.

I'm always on the lookout for another egg recipe. Thanks so much. We go through quite a few around here, too. But, you've got a good thing going with that egg deal! Wow. What a blessing. :)
