Eat Eggs Ethically with Blue Sky Family Farms

I have always loved eggs. When I was little I used to eat what my Grandma Diana called Chickie Eggs. I still eat them and my dad even sent me some egg cups to do so. I lost the one I had and I was so sad. I love eggs in any way. Scrambled, Soft boiled, hard boiled, sunny side up yum! I also love to bake with eggs. I always laugh when people come up with different ways to separate eggs. It’s really not that hard. If you are careful and patient. I really enjoy doing it. I remember once I had to make angel food cake in school, and I dropped a yolk in my egg whites. I was able to just grab it out. The teacher said it was the best angel food cake she ever tasted. Noah is working on the skill of cracking eggs. We aren’t quite there yet.  I think it’s an important skill to have in cooking. Eggs are so good for you too.  I go on egg kicks where I want to eat them every day for about a week. I even know if you want to use up eggs quickly like if you are going on vacation, you can make angel food cake because it usually calls for 12 egg whites. I had the opportunity to work with Blue Sky Family Farms. I received eggs from a shipping company. It was pretty cool. I was kind of nervous that they would be all broken. They managed to all survive the journey. I am sure Blue Sky Family Farms knew what they were doing though! I will add it to my list of interesting things I have received at home.

I am in the middle of one of my egg kicks so, I immediately made eggs the day I received them. I really enjoyed eating them. They taste so much fresher than the eggs I was used to buying at the store. I hadn’t really noticed that there was a difference. I knew that some eggs were cage free and organic but I wasn’t aware of the difference.  I also always bought white shell eggs. I remember my grandma Diana always buying the brown ones. The eggs also came at the perfect time too. I have been wanting to make quiche for a long time. So I thought this delicious egg dish full of Swiss Cheese, bacon and onion would be a perfect thing to make with my eggs.

Here’s my Quiche Recipe:

Frozen pie crust
1 small onion or half a medium one
 10 slices of bacon
6 slices of Swiss cheese
6 eggs
1 cup cream
Eighth teaspoon of pepper

Preheat the oven to 450° place the pie crust on a cookie sheet. Poke holes in the pie crust with a fork.

Bake the crust for 5 min. take out of the oven turn down the oven to 375°.

Chop onion, cheese, and bacon and combine together in a bowl. Place them in the pie crust.

Crack the eggs in a bowl beat them lightly together. Add cream in and mix. Finally add pepper. Carefully add egg mixture in the pie crust.


Gently put the quiche in the oven. Remember to keep it on the cookie sheet so if your quiche over flows you won’t have a huge mess.

Bake for 45 minutes until golden brown. Place a knife half way to the center and make sure it comes out clean.

Let the quiche sit for 10 minutes and then enjoy.
