With the dark days of winter almost behind us and spring coming into bloom, many people tend to opt for lighter meals. Fresh Ontario eggs are always in season, and can be added to all your spring-time meals.

Of course, there are dozens of quick and easy ways to enjoy eggs, which makes it a cinch to get outside and enjoy the spring air.

Think eggs are just for breakfast? Think again! Not only do eggs start your day off right, but they also make a nutritious snack, lunch or dinner. With six grams of high-quality protein per egg for only 70 calories, they help to keep you full throughout the day. In addition to protein, eggs also contain 13 vitamins and minerals.

The best part? Eggs in Ontario go from the farm to the grading station, to your grocery store in only four to seven days. Now that’s fresh! Look for cartons with the maple leaf or Egg Quality Assurance (EQA) symbol to know you are purchasing high-quality eggs from one of the over 500 egg farm families in Ontario.

If you need a bit of inspiration, try this Bruschetta Sheet Pan Eggs recipe. It combines fresh basil and tomatoes with creamy ricotta and soft-baked eggs—all made in one pan. It has all the classic flavours of bruschetta, including a balsamic glaze, but with eggs!
