Today is National Egg Day! Eggs are a terrific source of protein and vitamin D, which makes them one of the healthiest breakfast foods. Did you know that there are more than a hundred ways to cook an egg? Some of the most popular varieties are scrambled, fried, poached, hard-boiled, sunny-side up, and over-easy.
While the eggs that Americans typically consume come from chickens, a wide range of poultry (like ducks and geese) provide tasty gourmet egg varieties. Quail eggs, for example, are considered a delicacy in many countries.
To celebrate National Egg Day, cook up your favorite egg recipe for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner!
