We figured we would lend a hand and highlight 6 recipes that will use up all those eggs, with a mix of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Let’s give it a go!

Eggs 4 & 5: Mediterranean Salad Bowl – Egg Farmers of Alberta (

With almost reaching the halfway mark in our egg carton, this salad brings a powerful nutrient punch for lunchtime. A great recipe to make if you have a busy day at work and need to stay energized.

Eggs 6, 7 & 8: Easy Pad Thai – Egg Farmers of Alberta (

A popular food from Thailand, Pad Thai is one recipe where there are many variations to try. The recipe we provided is a straight-forward one, but part of the fun of cooking is trying new things. This works good with pork or seafood and a mix of different vegetables.

Eggs 9 & 10: Chicken Parmesan – Egg Farmers of Alberta (

The last two eggs can be used making a worthwhile treat, like these chocolate brownies! Brownies are one of those desserts that everyone will enjoy. Feel free to use whichever brand of chocolate chips (milk, dark, white, Reese’s Pieces, mini chipits, etc).
