Brunch Featuring Eggland’s Best and an Eggcellent Giveaway!

eggland's best eggsI think I would love breakfast if it was later in the day. Matter of fact, I would like morning better if it was later in the day. That’s why I love brunch.

Brunch is relaxing. Brunch doesn’t care if you don’t eat it until 11am. Brunch does not make you stick with just breakfast foods. Want something savory? How about something sweet? Brunch is a pretty accepting meal.

The entire world should partake in brunch. I think it would be a more peaceful place if everyone started their day with a mimosa and a plate of some brunchy goodness. All after 11am.

crepes with strawberries and NutellaWhen the folks at Eggland’s Best asked if I would share some pics of a brunch featuring their eggs, I said sure thing. I love eggs. Eggs are easy and my kiddos love them too.

And while Eggland’s has all kinds of groovy recipes to inspire you with, I made my own special something for our brunch. Crepes filled with Nutella and strawberries. Chocolate anything in the morning is A-OK with me.

eggland breakfastCrepes filled with Nutella and strawberries makes everyone feel like they are celebrating something. And we are. We are celebrating only having to wash one sink full of dishes. Brunch is pretty wonderful that way too. Only two meals in one day to clean up after. Brunch rocks.

IMG_6729Crepes are so very easy to make. Don’t let the fancy French name fool you. It’s the same as making pancakes, just thinner. And you don’t need some fancy crepe pan no matter what your cookbook or favorite food blog tells you. Use your skillet. And make them big. The bigger they are, the more chocolate they will hold. Truth.

Crepes With Nutella and Strawberries

For the crepe batter:

1 cup flour
1 cup milk
2 Eggland’s Best Eggs
2 Tbsp water
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter (for cooking crepes in)

1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 pound strawberries, sliced

Place all the ingredients for the crepe batter (except butter) in a food processor or blender and process just until smooth.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough butter to coat the pan. Pour just enough batter in to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook for 30 seconds on each side.

Once all crepes are cooked, smear Nutella onto the surface of the crepe and top with strawberries. Fold over and serve.

IMG_6678And as decadent as my recipe is, it’s full of some pretty good stuff too. Eggland’s Best Eggs has ten times more vitamin E, double the amount of Omega-3′s, twice the amount of vitamin D and 25% less saturated fat than regular eggs. That’s one fine egg.

And if all of that wasn’t eggciting enough (sorry, couldn’t resist), Eggland’s Best is offering up a brunch giveaway gift package for one of my readers!

One reader will win the most adorable egg shaped cutting board, free Eggland’s Best product coupons, a large porcelain mixing bowl, whisk, reusable grocery bag, coffee mug and a handy dandy scraper.

To enter, comment on this post with your first name, last initial, the state you are from and your favorite egg dish. Entries must be received by Wednesday, April 17th 11:59pm ET. Good luck!

For more information on Eggland’s Best Eggs, you can visit their website, Facebook page or follow them on Twitter.

The Eggland’s Best coupon, information and gift pack for giveaway have been provided by Eggland’s Best. I have received no compensation for this post but they did send the same gift package to me in order to facilitate my post.

    Hi Melanie! Simple, yummy looking recipe and great giveaway! Believe it or not, I am not a ‘straight’ egg person but don’t mind wonderful breakfast creations or desserts made with eggs, go figure. Coincidentally, I would have to say my favorite ‘dish’ made with eggs is fried rice. This is why I loved the recipe you posted on A Beautiful Bite for that dish recently. I could live on fried rice, chicken one night, shrimp the next, beef the next, plain; they all work for me! Krista B, MD.

    Melody R from MA

    My favorite way to eat eggs is on Saturday morning after I’ve stayed in bed until past 7am (unheard of in this house!) and my husband is making them with bacon and pancakes on the skillet! They always taste better when I don’t have to cook them! Now if I could just get him to clean up afterwards….

  60. Johanna H. says:

    Our local breakfast restaurant makes the best egg, bacon and cheese croissant, yummy!!!

  61. Mel J. from Pa. says:

    WhenI was young we would always visit my Aunt. She would make me an egg sandwich. It was a fried egg topped with cheese, lettuce and tomato on toast with a little mayo. I miss her so much and still can’t create those perfect sandwiches.

  62. My family would gladly eat eggs 3 meals a day (and sometimes do). My favorite is sunny side up (runny runny yolk!) layered over a big pile of corned beef hash. Ah breakfast, my delight! (Note: my waistline may not agree with this sentiment. :D)

  63. I like just scrambled eggs with cheese. They always taste better if someone cooks it for me though! LOL

    Those look delicious, might have to branch out and try those. My favorit receipe with eggs may sound strange but every once in awhile I like a fried egg sandwich for dinner. Over easy and kind of runny on fresh bread and a slice of good cheese. Super easy, everyone likes it including the kids and only one pan to clean up, which technically only gets rinsed with hot water as it is seasoned. It was my grandmothers egg pan and is used only to make fried eggs :)

  82. Patti S. from MS
    One of our favorite slow morning egg recipes is an omelet with whatever and anything we can find leftover in the fridge…depending on whose omelet it is :)

  100. Patricia N. says:

    That recipe for crepes with strawberries and Nutella is amazing. Have been making it for years. I first discovered it in a pillsbury brochure? I got through the mail years ago. It is featured again on their website this month. It has been a favorite of my son’s for years now, and sure beats watching him eat the Nutella out of the jar by the spoonful. I finally came by a recipe to make my own Nutella; no more paying an arm and a leg for it and I can put as much or as little sugar in it as I want.
    My favorite way to eat eggs? eggs Benedict on an English muffin with a side of steamed spinach.
