At this time of year, who doesn’t need lots of hard boiled eggs? These roasted eggs taste great and you don’t have to stand around waiting for the water to boil.
Here is a novel way to cook eggs that may help you when you have a lot of eggs to hard boil and not enough room in the pot or on top of the stove.
Calling it a roasted egg may even entice a child to try a hard boiled egg even if they have been a little hesitant about them.
Roasted or hard boiled – these eggs make a great snack especially when they come from pastured chickens!
Eggs are a sacred food.
They have been highly prized in all traditional cultures since forever.
Pastured eggs have a rich vibrant yellow orange color that conventional eggs lack.
The color tells you that this is a more nutrient dense product than the conventional egg.
There are also about about 180 mgs of cholesterol, down from the former 220 mgs.
In addition, the white of the egg adds about 7 grams of a complete protein (having all eight essential amino acids).
This egg is full of fat soluble vitamins as mentioned above, as well as B complex, and minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron and phosphorus.
The deeper the color, the more carotenes, such as lutein and zeaxanthin.
These two carotenes have been identified as being essential to healthy vision by supporting the macula and preventing cataracts. They are also identified as helping to prevent breast and colon cancer.
Compared to eggs from conventionally raised, caged hens, eggs produced by pastured chickens have more omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and vitamin A, naturally occurring vitamin D, along with notably higher amounts of folic acid and vitamin B12. All of these nutrients are essential for the developing embryo and people too!Print
