Pipper’s Recipe Recommendations: Putting the Egg Back Together Again

recipe recommendationHere is a recipe recommendation for you with an awesome, creative story to it! Pipper’s pal Archibald, design expert extraordinaire, was confounded when he read about an omelet recipe printed on an egg. An artist named Dan Newman used what he called the “Egg-Bot,” a 3-D printer that works on spherical objects, to print the recipe right on the eggshell. But Archibald said that once you break the egg, the recipe is broken in pieces too. Time to memorize! Here’s Pipper’s recipe recommendation for that famous Italian omelet, the frittata. You can break all the eggs it calls for and still have the recipe!
