Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week we're celebrating World Egg Day with 15 Egg Recipes that you can eat any time of day!
This post is sponsored by Egg Farmers of Canada. For more egg-ceptional recipes and all things eggs, visit eggs.ca.
October 11th is World Egg Day and we're big fans of eggs around here. They're a pantry staple, a meal prepper's dream and the perfect solution when you need a filling meal fast!
And they're not just for breakfast! Think outside the carton - you can use eggs any time of day like these 15 egg dishes will show. They're all dinner worthy, delicious and easy. Most of them are really quick to make or can be prepped ahead of time too.
Tacos for the kids? Check! A salad that east like a meal? Check! A drippy, yolk sandwich? Check!
Not to mention one pan dinners and bakes, curries, Tex-Mex flavours, an egg drop soup and a Ukrainian egg dish the every pierogie lover will be excited about.
There are over 1000 egg farming families across Canada who work hard every day to produce the very best eggs in the world. This past year was actually 12th consecutive year of growth in egg sales in Canada - topping out at 752 million dozen eggs in 2018! Canadians love their eggs and with recipes like these, you can see why!
