I am the Eggland’s Best brand ambassador and the below is a sponsored post. The topic, opinions, & and my obsession with forcing their egg-into-a-gluten-free-frame are all my own.
Once upon a time I was a misfit who was compelled to take Home Economics (seriously. just typing those words dates me. Home Ec in 2013 sounds crayray.).
I failed sewing (barely made a jacket. when done discovered Id accidentally sewn front and back together.), but loved the cooking part of class.
Or, more aptly put, I loved making Egg in a Frame.
I framed for breakfast. I framed for snack. I framed for brinner.
I framed ‘on the reg’ (as the kids no longer say) until I went gluten-free about twenty years ago.
Yet, as the child has clearly noticed, Eggland’s Best eggs have remained my fave fave food.
Even sans frame.
As the Tornado grows interested in preparing her own meals—I wanted a way to share with her my Egg-In-Frame love.
At the same time, I sought additional ways to practice what I LONGED TO PREACH about the benefits of consuming vegetables.
And a Gluten-Free Egg-in-Frame plan was hatched.
Something she could practically make herself & one where we *both* could harness the tastiness of Eggland’s Best eggs to lessen the green pepper flavor we dont (yet!) adore.
First I created a ‘frame’ whilst simultaneously tuning OUT the mutterings of EW! I HATE GREEN PEPPERS! from the
Next she demanded a photo-op.
I heated a splash of oil in a pan while the Tornado excitedly readied to plop in our frame.
Next I embraced all my motherly “you’ll burn yourself” fears and let her plop her own tattoo’ed oval in the frame:
We cooked for the length of a Beiber song (about three minutes).
And then we flipped (both out that it was working and over the egg):
After approximately ten minutes total (from whole pepper to final framed egg) we were done:
And, if we say so ourselves, it was gluten-free egg in a frame PERFECTION.
- How did you last *frame* your egg? Gluten-filled or gluten-FREE?
Im confident we did not create this idea. After making, eating, laughing, and cleaning I did some googling. The first to come up was MARTHA…
