Lemon Honey Vinaigrette Ingredients

  • 1/2 c extra virgin olive oil

Bacon and Egg Brussels Sprout Salad Ingredients

  • 8 - 10 strips bacon
  • 2 c sweet potatoes (diced, approximately 1/2 inch)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 30 Brussels sprouts
  • Parmigiano Reggiano cheese shavings to taste
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s)
  1. Cook bacon over medium/medium-low heat in a medium skillet until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Crumble bacon into bite-size pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Briefly toss sweet potatoes with olive oil and season generously with kosher salt. Roast in oven for 20-25 minutes, until easily pierced with a fork. Allow to briefly cool.
  3. Carefully shave Brussels sprouts with a mandoline (alternatively, halve sprouts and then thinly slice). Use your fingers to separate the layers and fluff the Brussels sprouts.
  4. Using a vegetable peeler, shave several shards of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
  5. Toss Brussels sprouts with crumbled bacon, sweet potatoes, avocado, and vinaigrette. Divide among plates and top with a few shards of Parmigiano Reggiano and a poached egg.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
