What to do with Ultra-Fresh Eggs Laid by Lovingly Raised Chickens

A very kind colleague just presented me with a dozen eggs laid by his hand-reared chickens over the last two days. By dumb luck, I have a very special brunch planned for Saturday. I can think of a whole lot of things to NOT waste them on, but my one productive thought is Eggs Benedict. Other thoughts are most welcome!

The simpler, the better so the eggs shine. Love your eggs Benedict idea. Depending on what they ate, their yolks may be the most lovely color.

Thank you -- I'm told they have hard shells because they eat a lot of bugs, and they get to share their owner's dinner, and he mentioned he eats lots of curries. Could be interesting!

That sounds so intriguing. I buy my eggs from a farmer who pastures a small flock of hens. The eggs are amazing and yes, the shells are very strong. You'll be immediately spoiled.

Poached eggs can be a delicious brunch option, especially when topped with Curried Vegetables:

Tortilla Española or a frittata with lots of fresh greens!
