Egg Tuesday – Phoenix morning news, mom bloggers, and farm to table eggs.

March 9, 2010

As the spokesperson for the incredible edible egg and America’s egg farmers I blog about cooking eggs every Tuesday.

What a great two days! I got to do everything I love; a cooking demo on the morning news and then an interactive cooking session with mom bloggers from around the country. As part of the “Good Egg Project,” an effort by America’s egg farmers to educate people about where eggs come from and feed the hungry in the process, mom bloggers toured Hickman’s Family Farms in Phoenix, AZ. As part of the tour, I did a cooking demo along with Howard Helmer (the omelet King and world record holder) and spent some time cooking eggs with the moms. We showed them some simple, quick egg recipes that they could share with their readers. A nacho toad in the hole and a breakfast grilled cheese.

We talked about the basics of egg cookery:

1. Use a non-stick pan.

2. A touch of butter or oil. Melted and hot before you add the eggs.

3. Medium heat. High heat yields tough, curdled eggs. Lower heat gives you light, tender fluffy eggs.

If you remember those three things you’re well on your way to perfect omelets, fried eggs, scrambled eggs and more. I was impressed with how passionate the moms were about their blogs and their ability to make a positive impact on so many peoples lives. That is what it is all about!

When we got cooking we had a blast. In no time the moms were flipping eggs without the use of a spatula, making tender, light fluffy omelets, and preparing our nacho toad in the hole and breakfast grilled cheese with ease. It was also interesting to hear the moms’ take on egg farming. I think they had a whole new appreciation for what the 2 percent (the farmers) go through to produce the food for the other 98 percent of us. Check out their blogs to see what they’re saying about the tour:
