The holiday season is upon us, and it’s always complicated: shopping lists, dinner parties, and all the busyness that comes with December. We need simplicity now more than ever before! Egg Farmers of Canada has the answer. We are shining a light on fresh, local, high-quality eggs with the help of renowned chef Lynn Crawford. She has come up with three easy egg recipes that will bring simple cheer to your home this season. Enjoy her incredible creations:
1. Dungeness Crab and Devilled Egg Salad
Looking to impress your guests with a flavourful and colourful dish? Try Chef Lynn’s holiday take on a classic egg salad. Chef Lynn says, “I love how visual the salad is. It’s beautiful and festive. The creaminess of the egg salad really pairs well with the crab, creating a delicious and delicate flavour.” For a twist on this recipe, try pre-cooked shrimp or smoked salmon.
