During WWII, in England, eggs were rationed to one per week, vegetarians had two. You really had to decide what you wanted to use your egg for.
You had to make do with powdered egg for the rest of the time.
If you had your own chooks, like we do, you weren't so restricted but you had to give up your egg and egg powder rations for chook food which would be hard in winter when they hardly lay, if at all.
Last night I boiled up some eggs so I could make egg sandwiches for me and the boys today for lunch. Well needed after this mornings ballet lesson. We came home starving.
I slept in a bit to long to make porridge for breakfast and toast just didn't fill us up for long enough.
I know putting in a recipe for egg sandwiches seems a bit silly but this way you get more sandwiches for your egg. And very tasty too.
