Chicken Days and Egg Recipes

Our chickens are doing really well and they must enjoy their treats from the kitchen because their egg production is amazing! We truly have more eggs than we can keep up with! Freezing, baked goods, boiled, scrambled, you name it we're trying it. Even giving some away to neighbors! Feeling blessed but needing to get creative. So I thought I'd share a few more egg recipes.

Every time we walk back near our garden they run to the gate thinking they are getting treats! I do believe this last round of tomato picking is our last for the season. Frost is coming and temperatures are slowly dropping. Winter will be here before we know it and I'm not ready for it!!

                                   This cutie is still loving collecting the eggs each day. :-)

Many times she just pulls on her clothes and is out the door bed head and all to check how many we have early on!

                                           They have certainly increased in size also!

                                        The chickens are enjoying leftover goodies from the kitchen!

             Just a small sample of our abundance of eggs and the need to go get more egg cartons! ;-)

Here are some more egg recipes in case you are in the same boat with eggs or you are just looking for some new recipes to try.

Egg Bake Dinner

8 hard-boiled eggs, chilled and peeled
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
1 8 ounce can mushroom stems and pieces drained
1 10 1/2 ounce can frozen cream of shrimp soup
1 10 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup grated American cheese
1 cup soft bread crumbs
2 tablespoons melted butter

Cut eggs in half lengthwise remove the yolks and put whites in separate bowl. Masked the yolks and add mayonnaise, salt, curry and mustard and mix well. Put a portion of the yolk mixture into egg white half.

Place egg white halves side by side in a buttered baking dish, sprinkle the drained mushroom pieces over top and around egg halves. Place mushroom soup and frozen cream of shrimp soup in top of double boiler over boiling water. Cook stirring frequently until both soups are well blended. Spoon hot soup over and around egg halves.

Sprinkle cheese over center of the dish. Mix bread crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle bread crumbs around outer edges of the dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cheese has melted and the dish is heated through.   Serves 6     ENJOY!

Mexican Scrambled Eggs

8 eggs
2 green onions, sliced thin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons butter
1 6 ounce bag tortilla chips, slightly broken up

Beat eggs until well blended. Add onions, chili powder and ketchup and beat till well mixed, set aside.
Melt butter in skillet and add tortilla chips and saute over medium heat until warmed through. Stir in egg mixture and scramble until you get the desired consistency you want. Serve immediately.  Serves 4.

Will be adding more recipes for eggs soon! Hopefully this time with some good pictures to go with them, lol. :-)

My hubby would love that egg bake! Have you ever made GOLDEN EGGS for the family? You shake each egg really hard for about two minutes and then hard boil it. It comes out gold when you peel it open--the yolk and white have become one. It is always fun for the little kids and I always told them it was Nana Magic! lol xo Diana
