Easter And Passover Eggs

Affordable & Symbolic Springtime Recipes

With both Easter and Passover right around the corner, we looked into our Fab & Fru recipe archives to hand pick our favorite springtime dishes that are perfect for both holidays.  –Which of course led us to the versatile, affordable egg!

Although these two holidays are different for religious reasons, both celebrate rebirth and renewal, and the egg plays a prominent role in both the Easter & Passover menus.  A bonus?  Eggs are one of the most inexpensive sources of protein you can buy!  At our local grocery, even high-end Organic eggs are only $4 a dozen – or 33 cents per egg!  Eggs can also keep for a long time when refrigerated, adding to their incredible value.  –Though, I often have produce that goes bad seemingly overnight, rarely have I had an egg go to waste!

Here are our top picks for favorite recipes – perfect year round, not just for the holidays:
