Mamma's Egg Salad

As part of the Tastemakers Program through I was able to sample and learn about Egglands Best eggs!  Here is a little of what I learned about these eggs:

Eggland's Best eggs contain 10 times more Vitamin E than ordinary eggs, twice as much Vitamin D,115mg of Omega 3, shown to be beneficial to cardiac health, 25% less Saturated Fat, 75% more Vitamin B12, over 50% more Vitamin A, 15% more Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), 200 mcg of Lutein, shown to contribute to eye health, and 10% of the daily recommended intake of folic acid.  In addition, one Eggland's Best large white egg contains just 175mg of Cholesterol. Proven by clinical studies performed at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, and published in the Journal of Nutrition, and the Journal of Applied Nutrition, Eggland's Best eggs can be part of a cholesterol-reducing diet when eaten in place of more fatty foods.

To check out their product I decided I'd make some of my very own Mamma's Egg Salad!  See below for my recipe!

1 dozen boiled eggs (cooled down)
1/2 c of Vegan Mayo
1/2 c of plain Organic Mustard
1/4 cup of chopped sweet relish
1T of local honey

Mix together and chill over night.  Letting it sit over night lets all the flavors blend!  Get our your favorite bread or bun, top with fresh spinach and adorn with some egg salad!  YUM!
