If you’ve read our tribute to the backyard henhouse and are keen to welcome a flock of feathery little chicks into your home, it’s only a matter of time until your pantry will be brimming with eggs. At OR HQ we frequently send guests home with our oeufs d’jour, and have a you-bring-it, we-fill-it policy when it comes to empty egg cartons. However, we have also demonstrated some culinary creativity, essentially supplanting a lot of the animal protein in our diets by adding a [cruelty-free!] egg or two to any meal as we see fit. We love to top our quinoa bowls, burgers, and even baked potatoes with a fried egg, or to make homemade sauces such as hollandaise, mayonnaise, or carbonara. The options are endless, so whether you’re caring for your own flock, taking a couple dozen from your friendly neighborhood chicken tender, or merely purchasing farmer’s market-fresh eggs, we hope to inspire you with some of our favorite springtime recipes.
Super fluffy and fast, plus it’s portable for anyone with access to a microwave!
Giada’s user-friendly site is a go-to at OR, but this breakfast-for-dinner option is a springtime staple.
Fairly innocent as far as baked desserts go, these feather-light meringues are a great way to tszuj up any tablescape; simply add food coloring, flavored extract, edible glitter, or all of the above!
