Free eggs!

What a way to start the morning -- and this blog -- Free Friday eggs!

Become a fan of Incredible Edible Egg on Facebook here. There they'll have Buy-One-Get-One-Free (aka B1G1 or BOBO) coupons for eggs available starting at 10 a.m. EST. It'll save you up to $1.50.

But you better act quick: there are only 30,000 coupons to go around. And with so many people these days being cheap, they're gonna go fast!

If you are lucky enough to snag one of these coupons, and are looking for a way to use your 24 eggs, here's one of my favorites -- a twist on deviled eggs.

6 eggs
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Hard boil eggs by placing in a pot of cold water and put pot on stove on high (see Note). Bring to a boil and reduce heat slightly so it doesn't boil over. Boil for 22 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a bowl with ice water. Use a slotted spoon to remove eggs from pot and place in ice bath (this will keep the eggs from forming a greenish ring between the yoke and the white). Let sit until cool enough to handle. One by one, crack shells and remove from egg and return egg to ice bath to finish cooling. Once cool through, slice eggs in half and remove yoke. Mash with enough olive oil to form a paste, adding 1 T at a time. Salt to taste. Stuff yoke filling back into whites.

NOTE: Don't try to hard boil fresh eggs. You won't be able to peel them because the bond between the white and the shell is too fresh. Wait until you've had the eggs in your 'fridge for about a week.


  1. Well, it was my first time trying for one of these "timed" coupons -- a limited supply offered at a set time -- and I will say it was rather frustrating. After 30 minutes the site said I finally succeeded and would get my coupon in my inbox "shortly."

    But I have to wonder if that was really worth all the time and effort. I mean, at that rate I'm getting paid less than half the current minimum wage...

  2. Just 30 minutes ago the egg folks said there are still coupons left....
    although I'm still waiting for mine to show up in my inbox.

  3. It did finally show up a little after 1 p.m. EST today. Looks like we'll be having eggs this weekend!
