Menu Plan Apr. 12 – Eggs

By · Print This Post Print This Post

menu-swap-009I’m hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap again. This week the theme is eggs. Eggs are a good source of protein. In addition, they contain vitamins A, E, Riboflavin, folate and other beneficial nutrients. Eggs also contain a significant amount of fat and cholesterol. So if that is a concern for you, you may not want to eat a 4-egg omelet everyday. But, I have found that eating one egg for breakfast helps me get through the morning without getting tired or hungry.

Here are some egg recipes you may enjoy:

If you have a lot of hard-boiled eggs leftover from dyeing Easter eggs, you may want to consider these recipes:

I like the idea of making desserts with eggs as the main component of the recipe. I like to think that the protein from the eggs helps to balance the sugar.

Celiac Family’s menu this week:

Monday – Cheeeseburgers
Always nice to prepare a simple meal on Mondays. Both kids requested burgers with French fries and green beans.

Tuesday – Egg and Potato Casserole
I’ll have the kids help me make fruit kabobs to serve with this egg casserole.

Wednesday – Chicken Vindaloo
Serving this spicy Indian dish with rice. The kids will get Parmesan Chicken Nuggets I have in the freezer.

Thursday – Boneless Pork Ribs
This recipe for boneless pork ribs is cooked at a low temperature in the oven, resulting in very tender meat. Serving with Roasted Asparagus and scalloped potatoes.

Friday – Cilantro Lime Shrimp
I’ll serve this quick and easy recipe of shrimp with wide rice noodles and broccoli.

Saturday – Fried Rice
I’m looking forward to trying this recipe for fried rice. I’ll use up what’s left in the refrigerator for the ingredients.

Sunday – Steak
The pleasant weather and lack of mosquitoes has tempted us to grill outside. Serving steaks with a tossed green salad and corn on the cob.

Here’s what some other gluten-free friends are doing this week:

Wendy at Celiacs in the House has gotten her garden started, and is even seeing the peas sprout. I’m so jealous because my garden plot still sits untouched. She’s got a great menu planned this week including an Asparagus Quiche with an almond flour crust and a Mad Cow Turkey Chili made in the slow-cooker. Wendy and her daughter have also been having good success with Egg Rolls. Check out her full menu this week for more gluten-free meal ideas.

Are you allergic to eggs, like Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness? No worries! Cheryl has a nice menu planned this week without eggs. She’s planning to make her wonderful Lemony Mint Quinoa and Grilled Pepper and Rosemary Salmon. Yum!

Head over to Angela’s Kitchen for more wonderful meal ideas. Angela has an Asparagus Egg Bake on her menu, as well as Taco Salad, and Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry. Like Wendy, Angela is also putting the slow-cooker to work this week: She’s making Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

The gluten-free menu plan at In My Box is vegan as well, so no eggs. Instead, there are some tempting dinners of Fennel and Kale Pasta, Sloppy Sushi Rolls, and Tofu Florentine. I’ve never made sushi rolls myself, but those Sloppy Sushi Rolls may be just the inspiration I need to get me started.

Still haven’t tried that creme brulee. We’ve been in an egg roll mood lately.

Thank you for hosting! Finally got my post up: http://angelaskitchen.wordpress.com/2010/04/12/menu-plan-monday-april-12-2010/

The cilantro lime shrimp is so yummy (we did it over stir fried bean threads, matchstick carrots and thinly sliced red bell pepper). Thanks for sharing the recipe! Another way my son will actually eat shrimp… Woo!


Angela – Glad you liked the shrimp. My kids like it too! I’ll have to try adding the carrots and red bell peppers. My son would love it!


[…] Celiac Family is hosting this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap with the theme of eggs. I’m vegan, so I don’t eat eggs, but I will be doing a “breakfast for dinner” style meal of Tofu Florentine with “Cheezy Sauce” over roasted root veggies. YUM! As usual there a zillion more MPMs over at OrgJunkie. (But where are all my vegan/vegetarian peeps at? You’ve all disappeared from the blogosphere!) […]


Thank you so much for hosting! I am quite late to the party this week, but really trying to keep my MPM momentum going!
