Eggs, Eggs, and Eggs!

Eggs are a great source of protein along with many other nutrients.  For that reason, we always like to encourage our KES Clubs to use eggs if possible.  While we know many KES Clubs cannot due to lack of facilities, allergies and timing of school opening, many Clubs do have the ability to use eggs.  This year many of you received egg coupons in the mail, while many of you have made use of all your coupons there are many Clubs that still have some left.  Try your best to use these coupons before the end of the school year by getting creative with eggs.  Here are some ways you can use eggs in your KES Club by simply adding eggs and ingredients such as cheese, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes:

  • Breakfast Burritos or Wraps
  • Breakfast Pizza
  • Mini Quiche
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Boiled Eggs
  • Breakfast Sandwich
  • Egg Muffins
