Learning More About B.C. Eggs + Easy & Delicious Scramble Egg Recipe

We eat eggs every day, usually in the morning for breakfast but sometimes we have them for lunch or dinner, or even as a snack. Hard-boiled eggs can be a super satisfying snack in the middle of the day, plus you can use them to make adorable owl sandwiches for the kids!

Cute, right?

Eggs are high in protein and filled with nutrients such as vitamins A, D and E, folate and iron. They are tasty and the boys love them so they are a staple in our daily diet.

At the grocery store, you can find an offering of BCEggs including free-range, free run, organic and omega-enhanced, as well as the traditional white or brown egg. You can even find “liquid” eggs, with or without yolks.

We often purchase BC Eggs and I have been learning a bit more about where our eggs come from and how the animals producing them are kept.

Look for the B.C. Eggs label on the box

To keep up with the varied demand, B.C. farmers have developed new farming systems that help improve the environment and the well-being of their hens. And for most BC Egg farmers, like Scott Janzen, farming is about family, carrying on a family tradition and ensuring the hens are deeply and properly cared for, and that the eggs are produced to the highest standards.

Like Scott, a third-generation farmer, many of the farms are also family owned and are run by second or third generation farmers! I love that the farmers are also happy to produce any type of eggs consumers want.

You can learn a bit more about him and where our eggs come from in the video below:

We eat scrambled eggs for breakfast almost every day and we have a recipe that we love. So, so good!  Scrambled eggs make a delicious and super nutritious way to start the morning.

Easy and Delicious Scrambled Eggs

Simple and delicious classic scrambled eggs with some amped-up savory flavours including mushrooms and chives and added protein in the form of cheese. A healthy and super nutritious way to start your morning.

Yield: 2

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Ingredients:

- eggs (2 per person) – I used Country Golden Yolks Free Range BC Eggs
- handful of white mushrooms (sliced)
- a few chives (finely chopped)
- shredded cheddar cheese (1/4 cup)
- 1 tbsp of butter

Directions:

1. Use half the butter and melt it in a small saucepan on medium heat.
2. Sauté the mushrooms for a few minutes until soft. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
3. Heat the remaining butter in the same pan and keep the heat at medium or slightly lower.
4. Crack the eggs in a small bowl and scramble them with a whisk.
5. Pour the eggs into the pan and use a rubber spatula to scrape the bottom and sides of the pan every 30-60 seconds.
6. Once the eggs are on the verge of being cooked turn the heat off and plate the eggs.
7. Mix in the sautéed mushrooms and then garnish with shredded cheese and chives.
8. Season with salt and pepper

    I love eggs and we eat them everyday, and my favourite is poached, but I’m not very good at making poached eggs. I would love to try duck eggs next I hear they are very good!

    Eggs are just so versatile, so many ways to enjoy them! Over the years I’ve gotten better at making them so I’m not serving my family hockey pucks!
