Eggs Around the Clock

(Family Features) Eggs have been the star ingredient in breakfast dishes for centuries, and Americans are becoming more interested in new uses for eggs that extend beyond the morning hours.

In fact, a recent survey, conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Eggland's Best, found that 64 percent of Americans would follow a new food trend using eggs as a topping. In addition, more than one out of five indicated brunch or dinner as their favorite meal time to serve eggs.

"Eggs are so versatile and one of my favorite ingredients to cook with," said Candice Kumai, celebrity chef and cookbook author. "I always keep my fridge stocked with Eggland's Best eggs to ensure my recipes come out consistent and tasting phenomenal."

When it comes to cooking, Kumai also follows a "Foods with Benefits" philosophy, which is why Eggland's Best can be found in many of her recipes. Compared to ordinary eggs, they contain twice the amount of omega-3s and vitamin D, and 10 times more vitamin E.

At-home chefs can get cracking in the kitchen with these egg dishes created by Kumai. Find additional egg recipes and tips from Candice Kumai at
