Eggs have always been a restaurant and home kitchen workhorse, but they have garnered new levels of respect.

As Eggs: Culinary Trend Tracking Series notes, consumers are seeking higher levels of protein in their diets-a movement favorable to eggs, with their six grams of high-quality protein. A single egg does contain 62% of the currently recommended daily intake for cholesterol, but the new nutritional consensus is that the cholesterol level in foods should not be of special dietary concern. And though growing consumer attention to livestock animal welfare presents a business and ethical challenge, specialty brands and product offerings are at least addressing these issues, as are related trends in the meat, poultry, and dairy cases.

Eggs are also the menu-maker's best friend: they are relatively inexpensive proteins, super-adaptable, and play well with a multitude of other ingredients?from breakfast to late-night, and for carnivores and vegetarians alike.

This report tracks the rising profiles or new incarnations of the following menu items:

  • Chilaquiles and Migas (Hispanic breakfast egg dishes)
