Key Ingredient – Eggs

Stop a moment and consider the egg sitting in your hand. If you are lucky, the one you are holding is still warm from its nesting place under the hen. Most of us, however, hold a store-bought egg in our hand. Still a miraculous thing, which we depend on in so many ways. As important as eggs are in baking, dessert, and sauce making for leavening, lightening, binding, and thickening, nowhere are they better showcased than on the morning table. At this time of day, we like them cooked nearly any way.

With only 80 calories per large egg, eggs are a very good source of high-quality protein. They contain all the necessary vitamins except Vitamin C, and many important minerals. Each large egg contains about 250 mg. of cholesterol. If you’re curious about eggs and want to read a little further, checkout www.incredibleegg.org!
