7 Facts You Didn't Know About Eggs

By America's Test Kitchen | Yahoo Food – Fri, 27 Mar, 2015

As an ingredient, eggs are indispensable in the kitchen. They can bind, thicken, emulsify, clarify, and even leaven. They are also incredibly versatile on their own and can be prepared in a number of different ways: fried, scrambled, poached, hard-cooked, baked, shirred, and made into omelettes and frittatas. Read on for some deep egg knowledge we’ve gleaned in the Test Kitchen.

You always know it's spring when bright green asparagus begins making it's appearance at the market. Paired up with crispy fried shallots, salty crumbled bacon and sharp cheddar, turn this spring veg into a company worthy quiche! Whether you serve it as an addition to a brunch table or serve it with tossed seasonal greens for dinner, you'll love all the flavours that this quiche offers.

Cobb Salad for One

Learn More About This Recipe +

When we eat out, I can almost guarantee that my husband will order either a veggie burger or a cobb salad. Full of tender chicken, salty bacon and creamy avocado, cobb salads are enlessly customizable. Make it Mexican by adding spicy chicken, beans, and crushed tortillas. We generally stick to the traditional avocado, eggs, bacon, tomato, chicken and cheese but this salad really is a wonderful way to use up all kinds of bits you may have in the fridge. As for the dressing, whether you use a more traditional red wine vinagrette or a creamy Ranch dressing, it's all up to you.

Quick tip for the avocados: remove the pit with a spoon. Some cooks recommend holding an avocado half in your hand and striking the pit with a sharp knife to remove it, but I've almost cut myself badly this way. The knife can slip, or if the avocado is very soft part of the knife will go right through it (and if you're holding it, things can end badly). A spoon is much, much safer.

A fresh, delicious, and quick lunch for one!

Egg Painted Cookies

Learn More About This Recipe +

Sometimes lazy spring break days turn into “I'm bored” and you need a project for the kids to do that can keep them busy. Baking is fun and actually is quite educational-all that measuring and reading directions is quite good for little brains. These sugar cookies with a touch of cinnamon are not just delicious, but quite easy for older children to make with minimal supervision, and younger ones will love the novelty of painting their food with a glaze of egg yolks and food coloring. The glaze bakes up to quite bright colors and gives the cookies a really nice sheen.

If you are really ambitious, you could make butterfly cookies, read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle, then head outside with the kids to visit a butterfly sanctuary. My parents still get a giggle from memories of me as a child, running through the field nearby our house, catching butterflies for Mason jars and declaring anything orange a monarch. Or you could cut the eggs out into egg shapes and the kids can decorate them with sprinkles, egg glaze and icing to make a delicious addition to Easter dinner next week. Either way, these cookies are as tasty as they are fun to make!

 

A tasty spring project to keep the kids busy!

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies

If chocolate and peanut butter could have babies, it would add up to these amazing peanut butter cheesecake brownies. Layers of creamy cheesecake on top of rich chocolate brownie make this rich square something you'll really want to savour for a special day!  Make one pan for yourself and another to share with friends, I can guarantee they won't last long if you do. Leave the Easter eggs to the kids and surprise the adults at any Easter gathering with a special treat!

Make sure to use natural peanut butter (the kind without sugar or salt) for best results. Processed peanut butter changes the texture of the cheesecake.

Jelly Roll French Toast Sticks

Learn More About This Recipe +

These French toast sticks are all about fun. Stuffed with cream cheese and any flavour jam you choose then rolled in cinnamon sugar, they are just like eating a warm jelly doughnut. Kids will love to help make (and eat!) them. You won't need any syrup for dipping as they are sweet enough, but the fun thing about these is you can mix up the fillings all you want. Try nutella and bananas or strawberries, different flavours of cream cheese, speculoos cookie butter or nut butters, and get creative! I used white bread but you could swap out whole wheat if you really wanted to. I loved the cream cheese and jam filling so much so that I ate three. You may have trouble restraining yourself, too.

The recipe itself is a little loose, mostly because it makes quite a bit of the French toast dipping mixture. You may make 8 and then decide that you need more, so I've kept this recipe more like a guideline rather than hard and fast measuring rules.

Baked Eggs in Peppers

Learn More About This Recipe +

Sweet bell peppers make a great little nest to cook you eggs in, and these have been dressed up with a little crunchy panko and parmesan. Baking them in the oven allows you to make enough for a crowd, and served on top of a toasted and buttered English muffin, they are a perfect little breakfast. The only thing you have to watch is cutting the rings thick enough for it to hold all the egg! Use a rainbow of peppers for the best visual effect.

Pepper up your eggs!
