“We understand it is a stressful time at the moment and we wanted to do our bit to try to and offer something that we felt would be of use.

“Get Cracking With Eggs is really back to basics when it comes to cooking – it shows people how to cook food that’s nutritious yet easy to make in a short space of time - perfect for anyone on the go.

“We put a lot of thought into the recipes, both myself and Deirdre O’Mahony, the face of the recipe series and we were determined to show the variety of healthy nutritious meals that could be made using our Riverview eggs and whatever you might have at home in the press or fridge,” he said.

Mr Kelleher said that they are “delighted” with how the series turned out and hope that it will be useful to families and students all across the country.

He also highlighted the nutritional and health benefits associated with eggs at what is “a vulnerable time for people”.

“We wanted to illustrate throughout this very simple recipe series the versatility of eggs, in addition to the health benefits associated with them – particularly in the current climate,” he said.

Get Cracking With Eggs is live now on the Riverview Eggs website and recipes can also be viewed on the Riverview Egg’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
