This collection of Excellent Egg Recipes for Spring contains recipes that use lots of eggs and are perfect for spring. They all can be part of a ketogenic, low-carb, grain-free, gluten-free, diabetic, or Banting diet.
Longer, warmer days have finally arrived! After a winter of laying hardly any eggs, my chickens have suddenly become over-achievers. My egg-purchasing (gasp) days are over again!
Even though my hens are working over-time doesn’t mean they make collecting the eggs easy. These girls are all completely free-range which means they run all over the property. They create nests in the hay, on top of the cabinets in the barn, or in a quiet corner of a stall. They lay their eggs in the duck coop, in a patch of tall grass, and under the corner of a tarp covering machinery. My hens don’t seem to know what a nest box is. They make me search high and low for their eggs and when I find them, they start laying someplace new. It’s a never ending egg hunt.
These egg hunts are so worth it, though. The quality of free-range chicken eggs is second to none. They have deep orange yolks brimming with beta-carotene. The flavor is fantastic, and the texture superb. These eggs are worth the search.
I am so grateful to have extra eggs for these recipes again! With four dozens of eggs in my refrigerator, I needed ways to use them up, so I decided to look at our blog to check out our egg recipes.
While some our Excellent Egg Recipes for Spring were from our early days of blogging, they are some of our favorites. Each of these recipes uses lots of eggs. A few of them use hard-boiled eggs and will be perfect to use up leftover Easter eggs. The creme brûlée and pots de creme recipes only use the yolks. Save the whites and use them in the coconut macaroon recipe. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own chickens. Check your farmers markets. I even see some great new brands of pastured eggs on the grocery store shelves. Enjoy!
