{CLOSED} Safest Choice Eggs & The Darling Dozen {plus $50 Gift Card & Gift Pack Giveaway}

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 19, 2012

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Winner is Elena!

{Dill and Lemon Deviled Eggs, from Safest Choice Eggs}

I never paid too much attention to eggs…until I lived overseas. Prior to this, I ate raw cookie dough and enjoying my near-raw eggs in different forms. And then I learned that not all eggs are created equal, or safe to eat. And I experienced first hand, on multiple occasions, that not all eggs are created equal. Eating raw cookie dough was forbidden…absolutely forbidden. Making sunny-side up eggs was not an option. Never got to enjoy eggs with hollandaise in the time I was down there. And when cooking with eggs, you had to crack each individual egg into a small bowl before adding to the bowl you were using to whisk the scrambled eggs or make the cookie dough. Why? Much higher incidence of bad eggs. (And if you cracked them into a small bowl and found they were bad, you didn’t have to throw out the whole batch. Six years…this is how I did eggs.

Needless to say, I became a bit leary of eggs…and it stuck with me as I returned to the US.

A little info that I find helpful these days, as a mom…a currently pregnant mom ~ The Safest Choice egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before they even enter your kitchen. Safest Choice Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath pasteurization process to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. The vast majority of eggs sold in grocery stores are NOT pasteurized. Safest Choice offers peace of mind when making recipes calling for raw or undercooked eggs, and removes the worry of cross contamination.

But, leary I am no more. Enter Safest Choice eggs.

If you want to bop on over, you’ll find coupons (yay!), recipes and more on the Safe Eggs website!

My favorite way to prepare eggs is boiled, cut in half, sprinkle with curry powder and cumin and served along side with seasoned chick peas.
