Incredible Edible Egg


Review by Debbie Mazo


Incredible Edible Egg Recovering from bad press for many decades, new research has indicated that, in moderation, eggs can readily fit into a heart-healthy, nutritious diet. Now that eggs have been given a break, celebrate the good news by exploring one of the best egg sites on the net, the Incredible Edible Egg.

Brought to you by the American Egg Board, the Incredible Edible Egg does well in its pitch to promote the egg as one of nature's most nearly perfect foods. Egg lovers of all ages will find everything they need to know on this large industry site with topics ranging from basic egg facts to egg safety to egg recipes.

Love eggs and want them to be part of your diet? Then, clear up any confusion in the Food/Nutrition section. Here, you'll discover why eggs are one of nature's most nutritious creations. Protein-rich, low in sodium, many people on a low-fat diet can still eat one or two eggs a day without measurable changes in their cholesterol levels.

Including eggs in your diet also means observing smart food safety practices. This site presents a wealth of information when it comes to the safe handling of eggs. Food safety tips you'll find on this site include packing cold egg dishes with ice (or commercial coolant) in an insulated cooler for picnics or outdoor parties, and using an inexpensive egg separator to separate yolks and whites so that contents don't come into contact with the shells.

Fajita Frittata The site's best feature is the recipe archive loaded with practically every egg recipe worth tasting and without a lot of fuss. Whether it's eggs for breakfast or eggs for a snack, each recipe on this site comes complete with a photo and serving suggestions. Breakfast highlights are recipes for Asparagus Crepes and Gingerbread Waffles, while main dishes worth sampling are Fajita Frittata and Vegetable Rice Quiche.

Still want more? Then, check out the Eggcyclopedia for facts and figures, definitions, and diagrams-all related to various aspects of the egg. Or, browse some of the Free Stuff including online clip art with over 50 images (not just eggs) that you can download.

Easy to navigate and full of handy information, the Incredible Edible Egg is definitely all it's cracked up to be.
