I am so excited to team up with Egg Farmers of Canada for their #RecipesThatGive campaign!

They have joined forces with the Canada Food Bank to have Canadian bloggers create simple and easy-to-recreate recipes, to give Canadians the gift of time to spend with their loved ones and make meaningful contributions in their community.

Through this campaign, we are encouraging Canadians to inspire others to give back by sharing their simple and delicious #RecipesThatGive on social media and donating food, funds or time to their local food bank.

Egg Farmers of Canada and Canada Food Banks

More than a million visits are made to a food bank in Canada each month.

In Canada, 1 in 3 people helped by food banks are children and youth.

Community engagement is rooted in the traditions of family farming across our country, and our farmers are long-time supporters of food banks.

Canadian egg farmers donate more than 1.4 million eggs to their local food banks every year.

Today I am sharing this single serve, time saving, egg recipe for the #RecipesThatGive campaign!

  1. First, you need to spray your jars with non stick spray!
