Snacks are probably one of the last meals people take their time out to plan for, speaking from experience.

Just like any other food you have, snacks are not only important to help get rid of hunger but they also have to provide you with the right nutrients to keep you healthy.

This is exactly why homemade snacks rule and this compilation has the best egg snacks of all time!

Short prep time, quick to throw together and best of all, no fancy ingredients. The leading star of this show is everyone’s favourite pantry staple, the humble egg.
