It’s a tough job, but as Eggland’s Best “CEO,” I am up for the challenge. I am honored to be a judge in this year’s Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” contest.
My friends at Eggland’s Best launched the 2014 contest Monday, announcing that entrants can submit original recipes showcasing Eggland’s Best eggs for the chance to win $10,000!
And what an awesome ingredient to feature. Eggland’s Best eggs are packed with superior quality and nutrition, including 10 times more Vitamin E, more than double the Omega 3s, 25 percent less saturated fat and four times more Vitamin D than ordinary eggs.
Egg enthusiasts can submit their favorite, original egg recipes on the Eggland’s Best website through July 31 for a chance to win cash prizes.
The grand prize winner of the contest will be awarded $10,000, and $1,000 prizes in each of the following categories: Breakfast, Appetizer, Main Course and Dessert.
“We are thrilled to bring back the ‘Your Best Recipe’ Contest after the success of the inaugural contest,” said Charles Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “With the addition of the ‘Fan Favorite’ and ‘Kid-friendly’ awards, this contest is bigger than ever before and we are looking forward to seeing even more great recipes!”
The “Kid-friendly” award will be given to one recipe that kids can easily help their parents with in the kitchen, and the “Fan Favorite” award will be determined by consumer voting. Both of these awards will come with a $1,000 prize.
Again, here is the super egg-citing part on my end: Eggland’s best has recruited some pretty egg-straordinary egg-sperts to judge, including Donna Pochoday-Stelmach, the first-ever winner of the Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” contest, and yours truly, winner of the 2013 Eggland’s Best “Chief Egg Officer” contest.
We will help evaluate recipes based on creativity, taste, and visual appeal. Again, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it, right Donna?
