COLUMBUS, Ohio (PRWEB) September 12, 2019
With school back in session and families establishing new routines, EGGsperts from some of the nation’s top egg farming states and food bloggers have come together to share easy, kid-friendly dinner recipes to keep weeknights stress-free. Dish on Eggs offers 24 simple dinner recipes, starring the incredible egg, that are sure to please even the pickiest eaters. As part of the campaign, consumers can also enter to win a free year’s supply of eggs and download a free e-cookbook at http://www.DishOnEggs.com.
“Using eggs to make dinner on school nights is a smart choice because of their extreme versatility,” said Jim Chakeres, executive vice president of the Ohio Egg Marketing Program, one of the participating states. “Eggs are easy to make and are the perfect addition to dozens of favorite kids’ recipes like the pizza and tacos featured by Dish on Eggs.”
According to a study conducted by Russell Research, 80 percent of Americans struggle to think about eggs served in any occasion other than breakfast. Dish on Eggs leverages the Incredible Eggs’ successful ‘Dinner Egg’ campaign, which disrupts the notion that eggs are only for breakfast and highlights the versatility of one of the most delicious, nutritious and easy to prepare sources of protein available.
Participating organizations in the back-to-school recipe exchange include: the Ohio Egg Marketing Program (OH), Iowa Egg Council (IA), Pacific Egg and Poultry Association (CA), North Carolina Egg Association (NC), Virginia Egg Council (VA), Chicken & Egg Association of Minnesota (MN), Michigan Allied Poultry Industries (MI), and the Colorado Egg Producers (CO).
A sampling of the featured recipes on DishOnEggs.com include:
- B.E.L.T. Pizza (Ohio) – A thin pizza crust topped with bacon, eggs, lettuce, tomato and cheese, and served with creamy ranch dressing
- Egg Lasagna (Iowa)- Layers of beef, cheese and scrambled egg in whole wheat pasta
- Stuffed Peppers with Egg Toppers (North Carolina)- Bell peppers topped with baked eggs and stuffed with ground beef, cheese and fresh veggies
- Arugula Salad with Poached Egg (California)- A perfectly poached egg on a bed of fresh arugula, tossed with a light, made-from-scratch dressing
Participating egg experts have also partnered with top food bloggers from their states to develop additional easy, weeknight recipes featuring eggs. These recipes are featured on the website and in the free, downloadable e-cookbook.
“In addition to being an important part of many family’s favorite dinner recipes, eggs also offer great nutritional benefits,” said Kevin Stiles, executive director, Iowa Egg Council. “One large egg is packed with six grams of high-quality protein and other nutrients to help students stay fueled and focused in school.”
