    HELP: Non or low egg recipes that are filling

    Shop Now
    My local farms chickens didn't lay enough eggs this week and I really don't want to hit the store and get factory eggs. My twins are 13 and at this point are bottomless pits. We usually go through 6 dozen eggs a week and this week we only have 2 dozen eggs. Do you have any FILLING non egg or low egg breakfast ideas? Yogurt and fruit just isn't enough, they'd eat a gallon each and come back for more.

    Factory farmed eggs aren't exactly poisonous. Don't let perfect be the enemy of good. Buy the eggs.

    Ditto. Also, my local store carries 30% sour cream by a local dairy, so no frankengredients in it, just cream and bacterial culture. I could just eat a tub of that on its own, it is so gorgeous. Maybe get some of that?

    Keep in mind that due to the time of year, the chickens will probably be consistently laying a lot less and eventually not at all unless they are getting supplemental light.

    What about meat?

    Exactly, eggs are going to be fewer, from farther and more expensive soon. I'm trying to think of meat based breakfasts and some ideas with butters etc but I don't really eat that much in the am so I'm drawing a blank. I give the kids a half pound hamburger each and my son says, "still hungry""

    I understand but factory eggs taste nasty at this point and getting to whole foods for free range eggs weekly without a car is difficult. (I get most of my food through CSA's since I don't have a car) So I'd like to use fewer eggs in the winter.

    I'd add in some starches....potato, sweet potato, winter squash.

    Also, I don't think about 'breakfast' food. My breakfast looks just like lunch or dinner. In fact it often is leftovers from dinner.
