Rose Acre Farms is celebrating National Egg Month during the Month of May! Throughout the month, Rose Acre will be sharing facts about the egg production industry, egg recipes, cooking tips, egg trivia & much more on social media.

Eggs are a great source of protein and many nutrients. One egg contains 13 essential nutrients and only 70 calories. At only 17 cents per serving, eggs are also the least expensive source of high quality protein with only 0.6g of carbohydrates.

Eggs also contribute important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, phosphorus & vitamin A. Choline and Lutein are also provided by eggs, crucial for memory, cognition, eye and brain health.

Eggs are typically thought of as a breakfast staple, but can be made in many ways! Check out all of our recipes here for not only new and exciting dishes, but all of the delicious classics too!

  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) light mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sweet relish
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 small flour tortillas
Instructions:
  • Gently stir eggs with mayonnaise, relish, mustard, salt and pepper. Store, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.
  • Line each tortilla with lettuce leaf and spread egg salad over top. Tightly roll into a log, similar to a jellyroll. Cut each tortilla into 6 pinwheels. Package snugly, in an airtight container, so the pinwheels hold their shape.
