4 recipe ideas for farm-fresh eggs

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner selections from “The Farmstead Egg Guide & Cookbook.”

I began keeping hens in my suburban yard almost two decades ago — well before the backyard chicken trend. In 2006, I wrote the Farmstead Egg Cookbook, and now I’m pleased to offer this expanded version. A joy of cooking with eggs is seeing their transformation from basic to spectacular, and this is especially evident when using truly fresh eggs laid by content hens. They really do “stand up,” and their flavor matches their consistency. For a recipe like Bombay Scrambled Eggs, it means that even with the spices, the eggs still star.
