Our hens have picked up egg production in a big way the last few weeks. Their increased productivity has left me with a refrigerator full of eggs, and sounding a little like Bubba from Foresst Gump talking about his shrimp.
Every morning I ask the kids, "How would you like your eggs? You can have them dippy, scrambled, boiled, in an omelet, or on a sandwich." Their response, "Eggs again?"
I've had to come up with some more interesting ways to use up those eggs.
Pancakes and French Toast are always favorites here. Though, they do use eggs, they don't use them in the quantities I have. I have a couple of other recipes that use up a lot of eggs. Both are quite delicious, and the kids have not yet tired of them. One of is Breakfast Casserole.
The other recipe, German Pancakes, was recommended to me by Becca of Bright Haven Days. This isn't your average pancake. It uses a lot of eggs and is scrumptious. Check out the recipe at Allrecipes. A couple of notes about this recipe:
- The buttermilk syrup is a must. It is so delicious that my husband said that we should never buy syrup again. I tend to agree with him.
- It takes about one and half of this recipe to feed my family of six.
- The syrup recipe makes enough for about two batches of the pancakes.
These two recipes have helped keep the eggs from taking over the refrigerator, but I could always use more. What are your favorite egg based recipes?
