Celebrate Spring with Eggs: Eggy Omelet Pie

March 16, 2022 General /FamilyRecipes

Eggs are inexpensive, available year round, and they’re packed with protein and choline — a B vitamin important for good brain health. Eggs are also versatile. You can scramble them for breakfast, serve our Chirp, Chirp Deviled Eggs for a snack or lunch, or combine them with springtime vegetables for our Eggy Omelet Pie at dinner.
