As Millennials and young parents are yearning for nostalgia, Hough and the Incredible Egg want to showcase traditional family recipes reimagined with fresh ingredients, updated flavors and new cooking styles to inspire families to recreate their own beloved recipes.

“Food has been a centerpiece of our family gatherings and recreating these classics recipes gives me a chance to fall back in love with some of my favorite foods growing up and rediscover the magic of holiday cooking,” says Hough. “Plus, every dish is simply made better with the Incredible Egg. Eggs are as versatile as they are delicious, the perfect ingredient for holiday season baking, cooking and entertaining.”
