5 Ways to Eat Eggs on Easter

It’s hard to get around Easter without thinking about eggs! While dyeing eggs is a popular Easter activity, we’re talking about some delicious egg dishes to enjoy with the family. Hard-boiled, pan-fried, or baked, there are so many ways to enjoy eggs!   

Eggs are a versatile, nutritious, low-cost protein source. One large egg provides about  6 grams of protein. They are a great source of choline, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin D,  phosphorus, and riboflavin. These vitamins and minerals help boost our eye health, bone health, and assist in nerve function.

The nutrition that we get from eggs depends on the nutrition of the chickens. Some eggs can be a good source of omega-3 fatty acids due to the feed the chickens are given. Look for eggs that have  “Omega-3” on the carton. 

Below are some easy ways to include eggs into your Easter holiday. Feel free to include the family in the preparation of any of these recipes for some quality family time!
