The weather is warmin’ up here in the Commonwealth of Kentucky — can I get a “Hallelujah!”? As temperatures begin to rise, my outdoor activity schedule simultaneously increases. For those of you that do not know, I am a life-long golfer. I can’t remember a time, after I learned to walk, that I haven’t had a golf club in hand. Golf has always been a constant in my life — no matter what is going on, I can leave it all on the course. That, to me, means everything.
When golf season comes around, I become hyperaware of my level of physical activity, fitness, and the need for a healthy lifestyle. We are, in effect, what we put in our body. For this reason, I often rely on superfoods that energize me, keep me going throughout the day and my activity, and satiate my appetite. That has always, in my life, meant one thing: eggs.
Eggs are, by and large, one of the most nutritious foods on the market — and Happy Egg leads the pack. They are high in protein, while also containing Vitamins B2, D, B6, B12, along with Zinc, Iron, and Copper. On top of that, Happy Eggs are organic and farmed in an authentic way; this makes them both healthier and more delicious. With one bite, you’ll know what I’m talking about, y’all.
As someone that comes from a family with a farming background, I try to be very conscientious in how I source my food. When you purchase a Happy Egg, you are receiving a product from a small, family-owned and operated farm in Missouri or Arkansas. Their promise is that their eggs are the Free-est of Free Range™ — each farm has over eight acres of outdoor access for hens to forage freely each and every day. How fantastic is that?
However, I haven’t touched on my favorite part about Happy Eggs — preparing them is quick and easy! They are the perfect snack for me, whether it be for breakfast or when I am heading out of the house to play 18 (or 36, let’s be honest) holes at the country club. When I buy a carton of Happy Eggs (look for the bright yellow carton, it’s hard to miss!), I often boil them because hard-boiled eggs can be utilized in a multitude of ways: on salads, with deviled eggs, and among other options, eaten by themselves.
My favorite way to eat them on the go is on top of avocado toast. It’s easy to grab and to devour — which, I especially appreciate when in the car!
Avocado English Muffins + Hard-Boiled Happy Eggs
To get the perfect hard-boiled eggs:
- Place eggs in a pot, fully covered by cold water.
- Bring the water to a rolling boil and remove from heat.
- Allow eggs to cook for 20 minutes.
- Drain water and peel; note: this can be done in advance!
- 2 Happy Eggs – hard-boiled, peeled, and sliced
- 1 Sourdough English Muffin
- 1/2 Avocado
- Hot Sauce, to taste
- Your choice of seasoning
- Toast the English Muffin and allow to cool for ease in handling.
- Liberally smear the avocado on either side, fully covering the muffin.
- Place sliced Happy Eggs on top of the avocado smear.
- Drizzle with hot sauce and your favorite seasoning. I love to use Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, though salt and pepper will also serve you well.
There’s no better way to fuel a round of golf than with this recipe. It’s all in the Happy Eggs: they keep me energized, stimulated, and active. Which, in my world, hopefully means more pars and birdies — and less bogeys.
If you are in the Louisville area, you find them at Meijer (look for the iconic yellow packaging!); otherwise, use the store locator to find the closest Happy Eggs retailer to you! Happy Eggs can be purchased in two varieties: the Free-est of the Free Range™ and the Organic Free-est of the Free Range™.
