I am joining a group of 12 other fabulous Canadian bloggers to tour Burnbrae™ Farms to learn all about eggs and how they arrive in our grocery stores. Burnbrae™ Farms is a family-owned Canadian business that has been farming in Lyn, Ontario since 1893 and with a lot of hard work, has grown and evolved into one of Canada’s leading egg producers. While there, we will be visiting the various types of housing systems for hens and learning about how hens are cared for, as well as how eggs are graded and transported to market, and learning tips & recipes for cooking them too! And as part of the fun, we will also be enjoying meals prepared on the farm as part of our tour. How cool is that?
We love eggs at our house. With two active teenagers, it is not unusual for our family to eat up to 8 eggs per day. I usually buy 3 dozen eggs at the grocery store at a time because we count on eggs to provide quick, healthy and high protein meals & snacks. Our favourites include: fried eggs, omelettes, scrambled eggs and boiled eggs. And since it’s camping and grilling season, here are two ways that we enjoy our eggs…bacon & egg mini cups made in a muffin pan on a BBQ:
We love this breakfast when we are camping!
I love opportunities to learn more about Canadian food, and I am absolutely thrilled to be invited on this Burnbrae Farms tour. There is no better way to learn than hands-on experiences and I want to thank Burnbrae Farms for opening their doors, inviting us in and giving us the chance to learn more about an important food that we eat every day.
