Let’s kick off summer the right way with backyard BBQs, swimming and fun in the sun! Now, no backyard BBQ is complete without some tasty finger foods and appetizers. Even though they’re simple to make and serve, your flavors can still impress. Here are two recipe ideas to try this summer using Eggland’s Best Eggs.
These are a totally unique spin on your traditional bruschetta by mixing and matching two delicious and nutritious recipes from EgglandsBest.com.
Right off the bat you'll probably noticed something different with these - they're both topped with Eggland’s Best eggs! It’s super tasty of course, but it also provides superior nutritional benefits compared to ordinary eggs.

For a nutritional powerhouse that’s versatile and satisfying, Eggland’s Best eggs are a great choice.
