That’s right!  The first big holiday of the year (if you exclude New Year’s) is Easter.  For many folks that means a traditional and delicious ham to be served at the dinner table.  But if you’re like a lot of people there’s usually a healthy portion remaining for future meals.

Unlike a ham that takes a bit of time to cook, the fabulous egg is a tasty complement that takes little time or effort to prepare.  Best of all, eggs are the perfect partner for that leftover ham.  Scrambled or sunny side up, few folks can resist the taste when served along with a warm slice of ham.  Better yet, how about a fluffy omelet combining both nutritious ingredients!

Remember, the humble egg has many things going for it.  They’re budget friendly, packed full of vitamins and protein, and can be prepared in countless ways.  Just keep in mind that not all eggs are created equal.  It’s best to buy free range, omega-3 enriched or pasteurized eggs for optimum health benefits.

You can be assured that no matter if its ham or eggs – or beef, fish or poultry – the products you select at Peacock’s Poultry Farm are sure to please both your taste buds and your pocket book.
