12 Things You Can Do with an Egg
In the 70s, “the incredible, edible egg” was how the American Egg Board marketed its chicken-created product. In 2015, in lieu of a jingle, we’d like to recommend this excellent video from Food, People, Places.
Shot with the kind of visual flair that would make Martin Scorcese both jealous and hungry, 12 Things You Can Do with an Egg beautifully showcases the versatility of this ancient foodstuff. From the traditional boiled and scrambled egg to the oval edible’s vital roles in crème brulee, marshmallows, and whiskey sours, director Rusch Meyer skillfully gets us up close and personal. And we just found out this fun fact: Due to their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture categorizes eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid.
