Celebrate Quiche Loraine Day during the #31DaysofEggs

May 20 is National Quiche Lorraine Day, which falls during the #31DaysofEggs of May. The Incredible Edible Egg shares tips and recipes all month long, at their website, or follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #31DaysofEggs.

To celebrate Quiche Lorraine Day safely, make sure you start with eggs stored in the coldest part of your refrigerator in the original carton. Wash your hands before handling or preparing eggs. Make sure you adequately cook your eggs, bringing them to a temperature high enough to destroy bacteria that might be present in the egg yolk or egg white. Always cook eggs until both the white and yolk are firm. Egg white coagulates between 144 and 149 degrees Fahrenheit (F), egg yolk coagulates between 149 and 158 degrees F, and whole eggs between 144 and 158 degrees F.  For more hints on safe handling and storage, check out this previous blog.
