Today's World Egg Day
and we wanted to pass along this quote from Howard Helmer
, the World's Fastest Omelet Maker according to Guinness Book of World Records:
"You don't need to cross an ocean, buy expensive ingredients or cook all day long to bring new flavors into your home - all you need are eggs and a few other ingredients."
Totally true. Familiar, affordable eggs are a great place to experiment with new flavors and techniques. Last night, we mixed some leftover steamed squash with scrambled eggs and a splash of soy sauce for an amazing if eccentric dinner. We also keep meaning to try pesto or sesame oil on eggs.
Here's one incredible, edible egg tip that we don't plan on trying, but it cracked us up so we wanted to share. "Love cold pizza for breakfast? Make it a real meal by scraping re-heated pizza toppings into an omelet."
