UK - British Lion eggs has launched a new web site to provide value meal ideas and new egg recipes.

Everyone is tightening their belts following the 'credit crunch Christmas', but British Lion eggs has developed a new web site with a range of recipes under £1 per portion to prove that, with food at least, you can cut costs but still enjoy a delicious meal. It is all about 'eggonomics', says the British Egg Information Service.

The recipes use tasty ingredients commonly found in the fridge to show that cooking on a budget does not have to mean humdrum mealtimes. From the Eastern inspired chickpea and courgette eggah omelette and stir-fried Thai noodles to good old fashioned macaroni and cheese, there is a recipe to suit the pickiest palate.

Not a Nigella? Help is at hand with the Eggonomics 'How To' video, a step-by-step guide demonstrating how to make bubble-and-squeak cakes. This simple recipe shows how a few eggs can turn leftovers into a complete meal – so those boring brussel sprouts can go into a delicious meal instead of the bin.

And if the New Year means a new diet, studies show eggs keep you fuller for longer - perfect for people watching their waistline as well as their wallet.

Always use eggs bearing the Lion mark, which guarantees that they have been produced to the highest standards of food safety. All Lion Quality eggs come from British hens vaccinated against salmonella, are fully traceable and have a 'best before' date on the shell as a guarantee of freshness.
