This ’12 Things’ Video is Eggs-cellent

Eggs are the unimpeachable king of breakfasts everywhere.

If it were up to me, eggs wouldn’t just be limited to morning grub, either. If you’re a fan of eggs like I am, this video is definitely for you. Some of the slickest, cinema-grade production I’ve ever seen in a web-video.

How is it related to Pizza for Good? Aside from being just a cool thing you need to see, PFG has a chapter all about egg salad pizza called “Edible ‘Za,” a play on the egg slogan. But you have to buy the book to get the recipe! My custom concoction comes with a kick of horseradish and a lot of other yummy flavors. Here’s an excerpt:

“The egg has earned a rotten rap over the years. ‘The ingrained misconception linking egg consumption to high-blood cholesterol and heart disease must be corrected,’ wrote professor Bruce Griffin in the British Nutrition Foundation’s Bulletin, as reported by BBC. ‘The amount of saturated fat in our diet exerts an effect on blood cholesterol that is several times greater than the relatively small amounts of dietary cholesterol.’ The once-maligned White Orbs of Evil are, actually, an excellent source of the protein and unsaturated fat that our bodies need. What’s more, the egg, treated kindly and wisely, can make for quite the snappy pizza.”

Eggs play a big part in a few recipes that call for breading. We can’t make Chick-fil-A chicken breasts from scratch without it, for example.

One final tidbit: I had no idea what graved eggs are, but now I want them in my mouth all the days of the year. Enjoy.
