May is National Egg Month and the great folks over at KRUPS sent over this delicious looking Egg Bake recipe for me to share with all of my foodie blog readers. I don't know about all of you, but my family loves eggs and we eat them almost daily in one form or another.
Eggs supply a wide variety of vitamins and minerals such vitamins A, D and E. In fact, egg yolks are one of the few foods that naturally contains vitamin D. Eggs are also low in calories...they are about 75 calories per large egg. From hard boiled to poached, the incredible, edible egg is a nutritious powerhouse for meal and snack time.
