Eggs are a staple ingredient in many holiday recipes. In fact, more eggs are consumed during the winter holiday season than any time of year.
To celebrate, the EGGsperts from some of the nation’s top egg farming states, including Ohio, have come together to host a virtual exchange – Dish on Eggs – to dish on their favorite holiday recipes representing their home state. From frittatas to strata and deviled eggs to classic eggnog, families can cook their way across America with hometown favorites shared exclusively by the experts who know eggs best!
Participating organizations in the holiday recipe exchange include: the Ohio Egg Marketing Program (OH), Iowa Egg Council (IA), Pacific Egg and Poultry Association (CA), North Carolina Egg Association (NC), Virginia Egg Council (VA), Chicken & Egg Association of Minnesota (MN), Indiana State Poultry Association (IN), and the Colorado Egg Producers (CO).
Each participating organization created three recipes to represent their state featuring a brunch, appetizer and dessert. Ohio’s egg-cellent recipes include:
- Shrimp Deviled Eggs (appetizer) – An easy twist on traditional deviled eggs that can be made up to 12 hours in advance for an easy, no-stress appetizer.
- Turkey Sweet Potato Hash with Baked Eggs (brunch) – Holiday leftovers will be delicious added to a Turkey Sweet Potato Hash that’s topped with baked eggs.
- Buckeye Cheesecake (dessert) – Top a fudgy brownie base with rich, creamy peanut butter cheesecake to make an Ohio State Fair award-winning Buckeye Cheesecake.
- Classic Cooked Eggnog (dessert) – This go-to festive beverage is a must at holiday gatherings. Enjoy Classic Cooked Eggnog garnished with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
