Hey everyone! Welcome back to The Coop with Meyer Hatchery – where we talk all things poultry in hopes of inspiring crazy chicken keepers and educating future flock owners. Each week we like to take a Meyer Moment to cover relevant happenings. 

Let’s take a Meyer Moment, to wake up and talk about Better Breakfast Day, happening September 26th!

So how did this day come to be? Better Breakfast day originated, during WWI as the United States encouraged citizens, to eat a better breakfast. Then the  Cereal Institute soon began promoting, Better Breakfast Month for the first time in September. 

At this time research by the institute, suggested breakfast was the most important meal of the day, and the month of September coordinated with children returning to school. As a result, September became Better Breakfast Month with Better Breakfast Day, occurring September 26th. 

With our counters overflowing with eggs, we can’t help but agree, that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. So what better way to celebrate Better Breakfast Day, than with fresh eggs from your backyard flock! 

Now if you’re getting tired, of the same old scrambled or fried egg in the morning, we have some egg-citing recipes you can try in celebration of Better Breakfast.

First up, a family favorite – Egg In A Nest. While this classic goes by many names, it’s a fun alternative, to a fried egg and toast. Over on our YouTube channel, we share how to create a version, with a heart-shaped cookie-cutter, to show your family a little extra love in the morning.

Hosting during the holidays, a special brunch with friends, or in need of a good freezer meal for the neighbor. Try an egg bake! It’s easy to use with ingredients, you have on hand, or customize, to fit any dietary restrictions. Meat, veggies, and your choice of cheese, this recipe will also help use up, lots of fresh eggs, if you’re looking for a quick way to get through your bounty.

Love an egg bake, but need something you can grab on the go? Try egg bites! All the deliciousness of an egg bake, in mini bites, that make a quick breakfast or protein-packed snack. Again these bites easily use your ingredients on hand, and are ready in your instapot in just 12 minutes! 

If you’re more of a plain jane, check out our recipe, on how to make perfect hardboiled eggs in your instapot every time. Again, a great grab and go snack, after hitting the gym or slice and add to avocado toast, with a little everything bagel seasoning. 

Lastly, sweeten up your morning, with fresh lemon curd. Eggs, lemon, butter, and sugar whipped to perfection, make a sweet topping for bread, muffins, and pancakes. It’s also a delicious treat to gift teachers or bus drivers.

You can find all of these recipes and more, on our YouTube channel and also conveniently linked below in the show notes. 

We hope you’ll indulge, in a new egg breakfast to celebrate Better Breakfast Day, September 26th. And that’s your weekly moment with Meyer. 

Enjoy the rest of your week and as always, thank you for listening to The Coop!
