This week’s challenge is all about eggs.

Eggs are a wonderful food that comes complete in a neat little package. They really have a lot going for them:

  • High quality protein
  • Nutrient dense
  • Very economical source of protein

Not only are eggs nutritious on their own, they are also workhorses in the kitchen:

  • Adds flavour and richness to other foods
  • Acts as a binding agent (meatloaf, crab cakes, hamburgers, breading)
  • Acts as a leavener (muffins, cakes)
  • Used for thickening (sauces, custards)
  • Acts as an emulsifier (mayonnaise, salad dressings, Hollandaise sauce)
  • Used to coat or glaze baked goods (breads, cookies, pie crusts)

With so many uses for eggs, it is important to understand eggs and how to use them.

This challenge will touch on many aspects of eggs so that you can be more informed and start using this economical, nutritious beast in the kitchen.
