Wednesday is now WEGGSDAY!

While we are all celebrating eggs on Wednesday now, let’s talk about why.

I love including eggs into my diet for many reasons but one of them is because eggs are a naturally nutrient rich choice providing a good or excellent source of 8 essential nutrients.

They are so versatile and can easily fit into healthy eating patterns.

I was thinking of adding potatoes to this. Probably baked, chunked and browned first, then as the bottom layer in a 9″x13″ pan. What do you think?

This recipe looks as though it will be fantastic! Thank you for sharing it with us. I believe you mistakenly left out the 5 eggs which would be blended together with the milk, cream and spices in the procedure portion of the recipe?

This is the egg benedict casserole tastes like the regular egg benedict, but so much easier since there’s only one pan involved. No hassle to feed even a large crowd. 🙂
