Are recalled eggs safe to bake with?

Eggs

The egg recall is still going strong, with over 550 million eggs recalled so far. If you happen to have some eggs that were explicitly listed in the recall, you can simply return them to the store for some new eggs. But if you’re concerned that other eggs might have been affected and not discovered yet (as many people are), does that mean that you ... Read More »

How to bake without eggs

The majority of baking recipes, apart from breads, involve eggs in addition to ingredients like flour, sugar, butter and leavening. Eggs are crucial parts of many recipes, but with the big egg recall going on, you might want to consider some options for egg free baking.

How do you temper eggs?

Tempering eggs

Tempering eggs is a critical culinary process, especially when it comes to making puddings, custards and other similar recipes. Eggs are tempered when a hot liquid (usually milk) is carefully streamed into them, bringing the eggs up to a very high temperature without cooking them. When properly incorporated, eggs have thickening properties that will help bring a custard to the appropriate consistency. This process is ... Read More »

Casseroles get a ... Read More »

Sausage and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Sausage and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Crustless Quiche is one of my favorite easy dinner dishes to make. Quiche doesn’t sound like it would be a quick-fix dish at any time, but this quiche doesn’t use a traditional pastry crust, which really cuts down on the prep time. Instead, the quiche filling includes some all purpose flour and baking powder, in addition to eggs, milk and other standard quiche ingredients. In ... Read More »

Frittata di Spaghetti

Frittata di Spaghetti

I always make too much spaghetti when I cook it for dinner. In fact, I always make too much pasta of any shape. In an effort to control the problem, I used to try and measure out how much pasta I was using with a scale or a measuring cup, but since I inevitably ended up throwing an extra handful or two into the pot ...

Baked Egg Cups

Baked eggs were something that did not appeal to me for a long time – not because I don’t like eggs, but because the cooking method seemed somewhat unnecessary to me. It only takes a few minutes to scramble or fry some eggs; oven cooking takes longer and you need to allow for the oven to preheat, as well. Poached eggs take about the same ... Read More »
