Eggland's Best Brinner & Giveaway!

If there's one thing I love, it's meal planning. I really enjoy putting together meal plans and menus for the week and especially when I entertain. Often times, I look to ethnic cuisines for inspiration on a menu theme. Other times I look towards a specific main dish to help me come up with accompanying dishes to complete the meal. But when Eggland's reached out to me to host a dinner featuring breakfast foods, I thought it was a genius idea! As a result, I hosted a delicious Eggland's Best Brinner, breakfast + dinner. It was such a fun theme and a delicious one at that. In fact, the meal plan I came up with for this special brinner is perfect any time of day including for breakfast, lunch and of course, dinner.

When it comes to eggs, one of my favorite egg dishes is eggs benedict. It's a dish that involves gently poaching eggs, which are traditionally served up on toasted english muffins with Canadian bacon and topped with a rich egg sauce, also known as a Hollandaise sauce. Preparing this involves a lot of eggs so I thought it was the perfect dish to highlight Eggland's Best eggs for my brinner. To take it a step further, eggs benedict can be served up with different variations. The traditional Canadian bacon can be substituted with other meats such as bacon, sausage, deli ham, turkey, salmon, crab cakes, etc. The possibilities are endless! There are also other condiments and sauces that can be used aside from Hollandaise, including guacamole, sour cream, Mornay sauces, etc.

In the spirit of highlighting eggs, I decided to feature an eggs benedict bar where guests could create their own eggs benedict with assorted meats. Everything was served separately for folks to help themselves. Poached eggs, toasted english muffins, and assortment of deli ham, deli turkey and pork sausage was available for our guests. And to top our benedicts, I made the traditional Hollandaise sauce. To accompany our eggs benedict bar, I also served up...

Crispy Hashbrowns

Tossed Green Salad
with grape tomatoes, toasted pecans and crumbled feta cheese


Pancake Puffs


Fresh Fruit Salad


Coffee & Assorted Teas

  7. We love everything eggs but my absolute favorite is from my childhood. My mom would make us "egg-in-a-hole" all the time. It's basically a peice of bread with a hole cut in the middle and the egg is fried in the middle over easy.

  31. I'm another eggs benedict fan. My favorite version came from a restaurant in Gulf Shores, AL. It included filet and an espagnole-based sauce as well as the poached egg and hollandaise. It's obviously a very rich variant. I've recreated it for my husband as it's his favorite, too.

  51. I am so excited about this giveaway. I ONLY buy Eggland's Best Eggs. Let's just say after an incident with chicken poop I began to really appreciate the fact that they inspect every egg...

    Oh how I love eggs. I love them in quiche. I love them over hard with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. I love them as an ingredient in French pastry cream. I love them deviled at BBQs. I love them hard boiled and chopped up in egg salad. I love them baked in ramekins with a touch of heavy cream and sprinkled with herbs and cheese.

    I can't pick one favorite egg recipe. I'm sorry.
