Eggland's Best Eggs

As most of you know I have two very active and growing boys. They eat all the time, and I do mean all the time. Since I don't want to break the bank every time I go to the grocery store I like to buy foods that don't cost a lot and fill up my boys. One of my favorite low cost foods is eggs. My kids love eggs and I love that they are inexpensive.


There are certain foods that I am brand loyal with and eggs are one of them. I have been buying Eggland's Best eggs for years and my family loves them. Here are some important facts about Eggland's Best eggs and why they are a smart choice:

Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain:

o 10 times more Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to protect body cells and tissues whether in the heart, skin, lungs, joints or elsewhere in the body. Antioxidants are nutrients in our foods which can prevent, or slow down, the oxidative damage to our bodies. Each EB egg contains 10 times more Vitamin E than ordinary eggs, which is equal to 25% of the recommended daily intake for Vitamin E.

o 4 times more Vitamin D

 Vitamin D aids in the body's absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. It is important for maintaining muscle strength, healthy body fat levels, and body tissue health. Each EB egg contains 4 times more Vitamin D than ordinary eggs, which is equal to 30% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin D.* (*based on third-party testing of ordinary eggs)

o More than double the Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids are classified as essential fatty acids because they are important for maintaining good health. Omega-3's are believed to be beneficial for heart health, brain and eye function, infant development, and alleviating hypertension. Our bodies do not produce omega-3's naturally, therefore, they must be obtained from food sources.

o 25% less saturated fat

Reducing the amount of saturated fat is recommended for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular functions.

o 3 times more Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is important for healthy protein metabolism, as well as cognitive, cardiovascular, and nervous system health. Vitamin B12 is needed for the process of converting carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from food into energy. It also helps form healthy red blood cells.

o 38% more lutein

Lutein is an important antioxidant that helps maintain healthy vision and overall eye health. Lutein may slow the effects of age-related macular degeneration, and it is an important nutrient for those who may be at risk for cataracts.

French Toast with Eggland's Best Eggs 


I was send two coupons for Eggland's Best eggs to try in my home kitchen and come up with a few recipes. I made three dishes, French Toast, Oven Hard Boiled Eggs and Oven Baked Eggs. Here is the recipe for the two oven baked egg varieties: 


Hard Boiled Oven Eggs
Hard Boiled Oven Eggs

Hard Boiled Oven Eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Wash and pat dry 12  Eggland's Best Eggs. 
3. Place the eggs in a 12 cup muffin pan (each egg goes in a separate muffin cup in the pan). 
4. Bake eggs in muffin tin for 25-30 minutes. 
5. Run under cold water and peel. 


Oven Baked Eggs


Oven Baked Eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan. 
3. Crack eggs separately into each muffin cup in the muffin pan. 
4. Sprinkle eggs with sea salt. 
5. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. 
6. Let cool for 2-3 minutes and then release from pan. 

Oven Baked Eggs


I love making eggs in the oven, you can add additional ingredients such as fresh herbs, goat cheese you name it. Just place the ingredients in the bottom of the greased muffin pan before adding the egg. They are great for kids since they can pick them up to eat them and they can be made and stuck in the fridge making the morning rush that much easier during the work week.

  17. An Egyptian Eye is my favorite way to cook eggs. My oldest two boys loved that as a child (learned from their paternal grandmother), so it reminds me of them. When my oldest came for Christmas, he made one for him and his wife and I laughed. :)

  34. Scrambled eggs is probably our favorite way to prepare eggs but I'm very interested in trying these two oven methods, I have never thought to make eggs in the oven. I like the way the oven baked ones look, and they would be great to slice in half and put on English muffins or bagels....thanks for the chance to win. We eat tons of eggs so this would be a great prize....and my step daughter wants the plush bad! Lol.

  35. I hate having to make choices like these, I love omelets because I get really creative with my ingredients. It's my breakfast go to when I want something filling and full of flavor. I also like boiled eggs, the taste great in either egg or chicken salad, oh and don't get me started on deviled eggs! I never quite learned how to boil them on the stove, I either leave them in too long or not long enough. I was happy to see you post on how to make them in the oven this should be easy for me since I'm really good at baking. I know what you're thinking... she can't boil an egg but she can bake. Well it's true, fingers crossed, I hope that I win!
