Des Moines, Iowa (NAPSI) - If your creative juices start to flow when you enter a kitchen or if you have a crowd-pleasing egg recipe hidden up your sleeve, then you might have what it takes to win the 2014 Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” Contest!
Egg enthusiasts have until July 31, 2014 to visit the Eggland’s Best website to submit their most original and mouthwatering recipes into one of four categories: Breakfast, Appetizer, Main Course, and Dessert.
Recipes must include at least two whole Eggland’s Best eggs and will be judged against criteria including creativity, taste and visual appeal. Among this year’s judges is Donna Pochoday-Stelmach, the winner of the first-ever Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” Contest.
“I’m honored to be part of this year’s competition as a judge,” said Donna Pochoday-Stelmach, 2012 Grand Prize Winner and 2014 judge of the Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” Contest. “Creating new recipes and elevating classic recipes, is one of my passionate hobbies. The one ingredient that remains consistent in my recipes is Eggland’s Best eggs, since they are fresher and nutritionally superior, compared to ordinary eggs.”
Eggland’s Best will be awarding the best recipe in each category $1,000. One of these four recipes will also receive the $10,000 Grand Prize!
This year, Eggland’s Best is introducing “Fan Favorite” and “Kid-friendly” awards where two additional recipes will have the chance to win a $1,000 cash prize.
