Food Bank Recipes: Eggs

Cooking interesting meals with limited ingredients can be challenging. Though one can survive on pasta five nights a week, it’s nice to mix it up and bring a little variety when possible. With our Tasty Tuesdays, we will provide easy meals using ingredients you can typically find in a food hamper. Today, we present two delicious and fast egg-based meals.
