In fact, that’s why I recently wrote a blog post about winter morning hacks! I wanted to spread joy and inspiration, because in New England, winters can feel difficult and endless. My last tip was to have something to look forward to every morning – like a little treat, a cup of coffee, or a special breakfast. And that’s where Handsome Brook Farm eggs come in!
Eggs are my favorite breakfast item. They’re a great source of protein, and they contain beneficial vitamins and nutrients. The thing is – not all eggs are created equal – and egg labeling can be confusing. Certified pasture raised eggs means that the hens are raised on grassy pastures with room to roam free, forage, and get plenty of sunshine and fresh air. And studies show that these eggs are more nutritious than any other types of eggs. Handsome Brook Farm eggs are pasture raised, and contain two times more Omega 3’s, 38% more vitamin A, and 23% more vitamin E than conventionally raised eggs.
Handsome Brook Farm eggs are pasture raised and organic, which is not the case with all pasture raised eggs, and you can definitely taste the difference between them and all other eggs. Buy them nationally online or locally at select retailers!
My recipe is quick, easy and nutritious – and designed (by me) to get my family out of the house on time, and happy. We love scrambled eggs, fried eggs, Eggs Benedict, eggs on toast, and these delicious Mini Veggie Quiches. They make us all happy.

We choose Handsome Brook Farm because they have built a revolutionary network of small family farms with smaller flocks – and this is so they can ensure that farmers get the fair wage they deserve, and hens have the space, attention, and love they need to produce the best quality eggs. You can taste the difference and it gives us a breakfast to get excited about!
