Review: Even during the short time I toyed with vegetarianism and was on a quasi-health kick (y’know, eating black beans with everything I cooked and going to health food stores to stock up on the latest super-vitamins), I never tried these natural eggs. The idea behind it is appealing. Eggs from free-range chickens that haven’t been pumped full of antibiotics and synthetic feed. While picking up some beer tonight at the grocery, I decided to give these things a whirl. The strangest thing about these eggs is not the brown color (that, my friends, is natural), but that the package says that the chickens from whence they come are vegetarians.
I would like to know what kind of carnage we are infusing into the chicken feed in this country. Is it a teryaki beef satay or BBQ pork tenderloin? Does Foghorn leghorn prefer a T-Bone or is he a cannibal that enjoys a deep-fried Chicken Little? Since when do farm chickens eat meat at all?
Regardless of the dietary patterns of our fowl I enjoy eggs of all kinds on a regular basis. Since I used these eggs in a rice dish, I can’t comment on their particular flavor by itself. I will say that they cook a bit slower than the generic eggs I usually buy. They also seem to be a bit fluffier when finished and the yolks have a milder yellow hue to them. They tasted great with the rice and beans I cooked up, doused in hot sauce and the miracle spice, Old Bay. I’m not sure I will be buying these healthy alternative eggs due to the price, but I plan on trying them between two slices of toast tomorrow morning when I wake up. Speaking of waking up… it is late. good night.
