Healthy Egg Recipes

It’s that time of year. The time where, for us chicken keepers, our hens are providing us with an abundance of eggs. In fact, we are currently in egg overload around here. But what to do with extra eggs?

We have sold some and even given some away, but our chickens are still producing extremely well.  I’ve made a lot of scrambled eggs and quiches.

But with my family, I need to keep things fresh and exciting. I mean, there’s only so many things I can do before everyone starts to feel burned out.

So, I have partnered with several amazing food bloggers to share this fresh list of ideas to use up those farm fresh eggs. You’ll find more than 40+ healthy egg recipes in this list. And a few sweet treats, too!

And I’ve also compiled a few other ideas besides just cooking them!
