Virginia Egg Council Contest

September 2, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm


* A recipe contest using berries and eggs *
Sunday, September 2nd, 2018 – 2:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Sponsored by the Virginia Egg Council

That’s right, this year’s recipe contest, sponsored by the VA Egg Council, and held at local county fairs all over the state is focusing on the addition of berries to make tasty egg recipes even more delicious. We think it’s a great idea, since the months that most fairs are held are also the time when berries are at their peak and super abundant. Plus, they add taste, color, texture, and are a great source of nutrients to the already super nutritious egg recipes the’ll go in.

Contest Recipe Requirements

  • A minimum of 4 large eggs must be used in the entered recipe or half an egg per serving.
  • Entry should be presented on a container for judging that can be left for display should the item win.
  • Recipe must list ingredients in order of use; preparation instructions; pan size (and type); number of servings; cooking time; and temperatures. Recipes must be on one side of page and must be submitted with prepared entry and the name of the item.
  • Judging based on recipe requirements filled, flavor, appearance, appropriateness of ingredients for recipe, creativity, and texture.
  • The Virginia Egg Council retains the right to use the recipients in its promotions.
