Those of you who know us “in person” know that my oldest son is a HUGE Boston Red Sox fan, and a couple of years ago he was able to take a tour of Fenway Stadium. It was probably the highlight of our years in New England for him. We also prefer to use free-range eggs when cooking, and when we lived in New England, Nellie’s Free Range Eggs were a delicious egg to enjoy.
We are excited to share that Nellie’s Free Range Eggs have partnered with the Red Sox to become the OFFICIAL EGG OF THE RED SOX! “ALL egg dishes sold at Fenway games are Nellie’s, meaning they’re Certified Humane and sourced from happy hens with ample room to roam.”
Purchasing Certified Humane, free-range eggs makes for more protein-packed, beautiful and delicious recipes.
- Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, now the official egg of the Boston Red Sox, are Certified Humane – meaning hens have plenty of room to frolic in fields, and in turn, have a more varied diet and are indeed healthier hens. As such, the egg yolks from Nellie’s hens are actually more nutritious than conventional counterparts and this is evidenced by the bright, deep gold color of the yolk.
- Eggs are a nutrient-dense protein powerhouse that power your home team’s strongest players, whether their minor or major league!
- Eggs are convenient any time of the year, pre- or post-season. Whether your team is on their way to the big game, out for a weekend hike, or you’re just prepping for back-to-school season, eggs are a great way to start the day and feel energized.
When deciding what type of Egg Recipe I wanted to share with y’all as part of this exciting news, I REALLY wanted to make some Baseball Themed Deviled Eggs, to look like a Baseball Field on top of the decorated deviled egg. Except, I just couldn’t get them to turn out well enough to achieve the cute look I was going for.
Finally, I was making some Egg Salad anyway, and it’s extremely delicious, so I decided to dress it up and photograph it to share with you just in time for Labor Day Weekend. If y’all are going to be watching some Red Sox Baseball, go out celebrating, camping, or working on a project at home this weekend, whip up a batch of this and pop it in the fridge so you can enjoy an Egg Salad Sandwich or two for lunch! I hope your family enjoys this Egg Salad Recipe as much as my family does 🙂
The BEST Recipes begin with fresh ingredients. I have found that Free Range Eggs cook better and look brighter. To test your eggs for freshness,place them in the bottom of a bowlful of water, if they are a little older, they’ll still sink, but stay on one end. Don’t eat eggs if they float on the surface of the water, this means they’ve expired. My Nellie’s Free Range Eggs have always been fresh and high quality when I purchase them, and they sink right to the bottom of the bowl.
- 8 eggs hard boiled and cooled
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
