The Edgy Veggie
This must be the egg industrys favorite time of the year. Theres Easter eggs, egg-rich Easter cakes and cookies, Easter brunch omelets, casseroles and eggs Benedict (eggs atop English muffins and in the Hollandaise sauce). Eggs also play a big part at Passover. Theyre on the Seder plate and in matzo balls, kugels and Passover desserts. Eggs, though, arent all theyre cracked up to be for cholesterol avoiders, allergic folk (eggs are among the top eight food allergens) and vegans. Plant-powered egg alternatives mean we still get a place at the holiday table.
