This year's Pullet Surprise goes to …

We put out the hunt for egg recipes for our second annual Pullet Surprise and here are our participants. We still haven't gotten many entrants but that makes the people who did enter all that more special. Thanks to them and with all the "events" in the food blogging world we do understand.

First up is Fab Grandma's entry is a Mushroom and Sausage Fritatta. This recipe is not only yummy, it's gluten free.

She has a fun site so do visit. Her and her husband are full time road travelers and have been since 2000.

Now here is an Indian recipe, Egg Biryani but Maybelle's Mom from Feeding Maybelle has a different twist. She makes a curry sauce to flavor this "pot pie" in a pastry. I checked some of her other recipes and she's quite adventurous.

Mechele has entered her BLT Fritatta and it can be found on her "What we eat …" section of her blog. She serves this one with a healthy handful of arugula splashed with oil and vinegar. Great photo. You can see more of her work on her blog and don't miss the vacation shots.

Irma's Rose Cottage is next and we have a recipe for Breakfast, Lunch or Supper. Migas is a dish that includes eggs, cheese and corn tortillas and was a favorite of our father/grandpa Gene here at PBE. This variation was prepared by Irma and served some some pretty fancy garage sale finds. Nice touch.

Sweet Pea's Posts did send us an entry and even though it had no photo or link back to use she tried real hard with this. She is new to food blogging so I'll link to her Sausage Brunch Bake. It's a variation on a strata and I love dishes you can prep the night before. Great for a large gathering. She says she'll be getting a camera soon but it looks like a large golden soufflé. Nothing wrong with that description.

Without further ado, here is what we chose for this year's Pullet Surprise.

Chris from Mele Cotte has made a fantastic Chicken and sun-dried tomatoe soufflé and one great photo. She's also having a second anniversary of her event Cooking to Combat Cancer. You've all got time, check her site for the rules.

As your "prize" you'll be able to use this banner on your blog for as long as you wish. We hope you weren't expecting a real Pulitzer.

Thanks to our submitters and all of our loyal readers. Next time, we'll be expecting something from you folks, too.
