The incredible, edible egg. It's quite a lovely ingredient in and of itself, but you can use it to make thousands of other things. You would probably be shocked to know just how many of your favorite things it is (or at least can be) used in.
Hollondaise sauce? Eggs.
Things that are breaded and deep fried? Eggs.
Omelets? Okay... that one is obvious, but you get my point.
The unfertilized offspring of hens all over the world are just one of the millions of food items why I could NEVER be a vegan. (Tangent: Have you ever heard of music eggs? My guess is probably not. The gist of it is that someone in China thought it would be a great idea to play music to the chickens as they developed based on the premise that happy chickens lay better quality eggs. It appears that maybe more farmers should be serenading their chicks with some Adele and Donna Summer. And now back to our regularly scheduled program...) More power to those of your out there that are [vegan], but you'll never see me at one of your carnivore's anonymous meetings.
