Nearly every week when I post our harvest results I get a comment just like this “what do you do with all those eggs?”. Well I will admit we struggle some times using up all the eggs our girls are giving us. We get a minimum of 30 eggs a week from our 6 hens, some times closer to 40. We try to give away some eggs (or sell them) every week. But our regular egg customer hasn’t been around much the last few months so we are having to get creative!!
But here’s a trick that always works well to take care of a dozen eggs.
I sneak out to the garden and harvest a few green onions and some chives.
The veggies get chopped up and cooked until tender!
The eggs get scrambled with a tablespoon of milk per egg and added to the veggies.
Cook them till they reach your desired “doneness” and there you go! One dozen eggs dealt with. Serve with some waffles and you have a great Sunday breakfast! The onions and chives really make these eggs pop! When the tomatoes are on we will even slice up a few cherry tomatoes and add them for the last couple of minutes of cook time.
Of course there are 6 of us so we can usually tackle a full dozen eggs, but some times even we can’t eat them all so they will go in the fridge to be used the next day or two in breakfast burritos!!
