Deviled eggs are a fabulous part of any Easter party celebration.
Recipes for an Eggstra Special Easter Spread!
By Holly Brown
Eggs are a versatile protein that can be served any time for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They’re also nearly a perfect food. Egg yolks are full of calcium, iron and Omega 3s, while the egg white is where the protein lies. Eggs are full of essential vitamins like B2, B12, A and E. They’re also loaded with zinc, phosphorous and cancer fighting antioxidants. One medium egg contains only about 77 to 85 calories—but it’s packed with 6.5 grams of protein. Eggs even promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulfur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. When possible, choose pasture raised (free range) eggs.
This Easter, consider both the nutritional value and pure deliciousness of eggs for your holiday table. There’s so much more to eggs at Easter than egg hunts, chocolate eggs, and egg coloring kits. If you’re in charge of the brunch menu this year, we have the eggstra special dishes your friends and family will love. From Deviled Eggs, to Brussels Sprout and Bacon Frittata, to Stuffed Eggs Au Gratin, there are so many delicious ways to serve eggs. For a Spanish twist, try a Tortilla Espanola featuring potatoes, onions, and spices.
Of course, I always start an Easter brunch with traditional Mimosas, including champagne and orange juice.
