COLUMBUS, Ohio — The EGGsperts from some of the nation’s top egg farming states, including the Chicken and Egg Association of Minnesota, have come together to host a virtual exchange to dish on their favorite holiday recipes representing their home state.
Dish on Eggs offers 25 egg recipes, including appetizers, brunch and desserts, that are sure to impress guests at any holiday gathering. As part of the campaign, consumers also can enter to win a free year’s supply of eggs and download a free e-cookbook at www.DishOnEggs.com.
“Eggs play an extraordinary role in many beloved holiday recipes,” said Steve Olson, executive director of the Chicken and Egg Association of Minnesota. “From frittatas to strata and deviled eggs to classic eggnog, families can cook their way across America with hometown favorites shared exclusively by the egg experts.”
Participating organizations in the holiday recipe exchange include: the Ohio Egg Marketing Program, Iowa Egg Council, Pacific Egg and Poultry Association, North Carolina Egg Association, Virginia Egg Council, Chicken & Egg Association of Minnesota, Indiana State Poultry Association, and the Colorado Egg Producers.
A sampling of the featured recipes on DishOnEggs.com includes Minnesota’s specific dishes:

- Turkey Sausage Egg Bake (brunch) — A Sausage Egg Bake is an easy and tasty addition to holiday brunch and is ready in about an hour.
- Flourless Chocolate Cake (dessert) — Indulge in Flourless Chocolate Cake, a ridiculously rich and fudgy treat.
“Eggs are not only a versatile staple for the holidays, they are also a nutritional powerhouse, with one large egg containing six grams of high-quality protein and nine essential amino acids, all for 70 calories,” Olson said.
