Saying Goodbye to the Grill: Cooking with Egg Stations

Eggs are the cornerstone of every successful breakfast menu, aligning with consumers’ desire to add more protein to their diets and a preference for eggs, as cited in NPD research.

But the egg trend doesn’t stop at breakfast. According to the American Egg Board, more operators are offering daypart-blurring items throughout the day, due in part to Millennials’ eating habits. The foodservice industry’s response to this trend includes a growing number of egg-topped burgers, salads and vegetable dishes.

No matter what time of day, today’s operators need a reliable way to offer fresh eggs, cooked to order, that taste and look delicious.

Some operators turn to a grill or griddle to cook eggs, but this method presents challenges.

Antunes’ Egg Stations, however, offer an efficient and hassle-free way to make eggs with a dedicated piece of equipment.

What are the benefits of using an Egg Station instead of a grill?

  • Egg Stations eliminate the risk of cross-contamination by providing a dedicated area for eggs — away from raw meat and other ingredients.
  • Egg Stations free up valuable grill space for better suited items, like hamburgers and breakfast meats.
  • Egg Stations don’t require a hood, making them a perfect fit into any operation.
  • Egg Stations are compact and easy to clean.
  • Egg Stations include a timer, ensuring consistently cooked eggs and eliminating user errors and wasted product.
  • Egg Stations use heat and steam to cook perfectly moist and delicious eggs every time, without the temperature variances sometimes found on a grill.

Whether looking for an ideal way to keep up with breakfast demand or expand menus to meet consumer trends, Egg Stations provide a reliable way for operators to handle capacity crowds, serve extended breakfast hours and maintain quality and consistency on the line.

Maybe it’s time to leave the grill to the burgers and bacon.
