What to cook for an egg fest?

My buddy just called today and said that a local dealer here in central PA, The Kitchen Shoppe is hosting an egg fest in April. He told the owner that we'd cook. What to cook?

    Depends on how long it will last - how many eggs will be cooking - how many folks (like in public) are expected to attend to sample the foods - will this be a free event? 

    BTW this year will be the 13th annual Eggfest in Peoria IL. At our first one I only egged and served one item...last year I fixed and served 7 different ones.

    One last point to consider - is this a true eggfest or is your dealer just wanting a demo cook? If so...then ask him to spring for the food as it isn't cheap to feed a bunch of folks!

  • @RRP good points. My first thought was the cost of the food. I'll find out more info in the coming months. I was kind of thinking that if I could get 2 eggs that I could do a chili in the DO and maybe some ribs. Also thought it would be cool to smoke some bacon at home them fry it up at the fest.

    As you get details let me know. I'm only 30 minutes from the Kitchen Shoppe and would love to cook.

  • Will do @Tjcoley. It's not even on their site yet. My buddy bought his egg there and was in for some supplies. Dan told him when he stopped in.

    Some other questions for you:


    Is it a People's Choice format and if so, do you have an idea of what prizes are up for grabs or how important is it to you to win?


    If it is a PC event and you're in it to win it be prepared to buy a lot of food, cook lots of tasty food, and serve lots of folks.


    Besides cooking and serving what do you want to get out of the fest (Do you want eat a lot? Do you want to meet and socialize with a bunch of folks?)


    If you don't want to cook and serve the entire fest and want to sample others food, limit the items you cook or include some slower cooking items so you can walk & eat around while something cooks. The risk of cooking slower cook items like ribs is people could be full or had enough meat by the time you're ready to serve. Desserts are very popular towards the end of the fest when folks have had meat overload.

    Cook something you can prep ahead of time. Ribs might be to long of a cook depending on how many eggs/cooks. Your could be cooked and warmed on the egg.
