Any business dealing with goods will have some percentage of damaged product or product that cannot be sold for one reason or another. For us, that comes in the form of cracked eggs. If an egg has a crack we cannot pass it on to the consumer…but we can eat it! Some days we have more cracks than others–rainy days and afternoons when the kids are extra
rambunctious helpful seem to mean more cracked shells. I’ve been trying new recipes so we are not merely eating breakfast scrambles…though the ones in the freezer have certainly come in handy since Naomi’s arrival.
This week I made an egg custard pie. A search on AllRecipes provides a plethora of options including Grandma’s favorite and coconut. But, as with any tasty pie recipe, first you must start with a homemade crust. I can’t provide my recipe here as I’m sworn forever to secrecy.
Second, only use farm fresh eggs, from Polyface if possible.
Then follow recipe as instructed. The pie was ok. While the kids loved it, I found it too “eggy” for my taste. And yes, I krealize it was an EGG custard. I much prefer buttermilk pie.
I’d love to try some of your egg recipes if anyone feels like sharing.
