Store Eggs vs. Farm Raised Eggs


For those of you who can eat eggs, and have never tried cage free eggs, this is a must read!  We went to Wallace Farms to pick up some grass-fed brisket.  My hubby loves using his grandfather’s Texas recipe for making brisket in our smoker.  They had a cooler with some cage free eggs.  I have heard from so many people that farm raised eggs are so much better than grocery store eggs.  I thought I give would a carton a try, and see what all the fuss was about.  Here is the sign that was on the cooler door.

I loved the varying colors, and speckles on the eggs.

So we decided to just take a store-bought egg and a Wallace Farms egg and scrambled them for a taste test.  I added 1 tsp of milk, scrambled it up, put it in a coffee cup, and nuked it for 1 minute in the microwave.  Immediatedly, the first thing I noticed was the yellow color of the cooked Wallace Farm’s egg versus the store-bought egg.  It looked smoother and much more yellow.

So I tried a bite of each one, and it really did taste so much better! I was happily surprised.  Not only was the consistency of the egg better, but the taste was so good!  I am looking forward to trying them in recipes! I bet it would make the finished product taste much better too. I’m sold and will probably never buy store-bought eggs again. Not only do they seem healthier, but they just taste so much better. I had to share this discovery with all of you.

Disclaimer: I purchased these eggs and was not compensated in any way.  This review is my own personal experience and my opinions are all my own, and not influenced in any way.
