The Incredible Egg reveals how to celebrate Easter in your personal entertaining style
Urbandale – Eggs are never more top of mind than during the Easter season. In fact, last year, Americans ate more than 2.9 billion eggs, and at retail, 242 million dozen eggs were sold. Iowa egg farmers worked diligently to feed this appetite for ever-popular eggs through the 2019 Easter season and beyond, joining with America’s egg farmers to donate more than 40 million eggs to charitable causes across the country.
As Easter approaches, one thing is for certain: Americans will celebrate with eggs. But, this year, the Incredible Egg is putting a personal spin on celebrations by defining four Easter entertaining styles to express individuality with egg recipes and decorating tips.
“Easter is a special time for families, and America’s egg farmers are proud to provide eggs from their farms to homes across the country during Easter and throughout the year,” says Katie Nola, Iowa Egg Council. “Our hope is that these recipes and egg decorating tips enhance current traditions and help create new ones.”
