By the way, chickens are not vegetarians… Have you seen those preposterous egg cartons which proudly say “Vegetarian Fed Hens”? Bugs, worms, seeds, weeds, pizza, just about anything – chickens are omnivores!

Buy locally raised, pastured, cage-free hens!
Support your local farmer!

Thanks, Ron, for sharing the great eggs!

With basil growing in the garden, it’s time to make green eggs, read Dr. Seuss’ book & chow down!

  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • Sea Salt & White Pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Basil
  • Instructions:

  • Cut eggs in half lengthwise or crosswise.
  • Carefully remove yolks & arrange whites on tray or plate.
  • In a food processor blend yolks, mayo, basil & Parmesan until smooth.
  • Season with salt & pepper.
  • Spoon yolk mixture into quart-size ziplock freezer bag.
  • Zip it closed.
  • Snip the end off one corner of the bag.
  • “Pipe” the yolk mixture into the egg whites.
  • Cover with plastic wrap & refrigerate until ready to serve.
