Make ‘eggstra’ special holiday memories – turn to eggs to take festivities to new heights this season

(Family Features) Creating memorable moments and special meals with friends and family during the holiday season doesn’t have to be overwhelming. While these festivities are often a favorite moment each year, the planning and preparation can be a bear for hosts. To help take some stress out of hosting duties, start with what you likely already have on hand, like eggs.
This year, simplify holiday gatherings by leaning into underappreciated ingredients that can make all kinds of recipes a cinch. After all, less time stressing over planning, shopping and prepping means more time to make memories that last a lifetime.
When it’s time for a celebration, eggs are at the heart of many favorite recipes. They are an invaluable ingredient to hosts, delivering convenience and inspiration for hors d’oeuvres, baked treats, traditional dishes perfect for entertaining and more.
Eggs keep baked favorites (and festivities) from falling flat. In only 10 minutes prep time and with a few simple ingredients, you can make crowd-pleasing recipes like these Popovers with Cranberry Butter from best-selling author and international social media chef Shereen Pavlides.
Start by whisking the star of the show – eggs – with flour, salt and milk to a silky-smooth texture. Cover and refrigerate the thin batter for six hours, or overnight, then bake in a popover pan (or try a muffin pan) to warm, eggy, flaky perfection.
Then combine softened butter and cranberry sauce with a pinch of salt before spreading on the melt-in-your-mouth popovers. For an extra special touch, consider whipping up homemade cranberry sauce rather than using a store-bought version.
Whether it’s served as an appetizer or light dessert, this savory-with-a-touch-of-sweet recipe can become part of your family’s most cherished traditions, made possible by eggs. Remember, all it takes is the egg carton already in the refrigerator to be the “host or hostess with the most-est” and make memories with those who matter most.
Don’t rule out the egg as a key ingredient for creating new experiences, memories and traditions this holiday season. Discover more benefits and recipes that go beyond eggspectations at IncredibleEgg.org/invaluableegg.
