WASHINGTON, Ill.-- Green eggs and ham took on a whole new meaning at the 3rd annual Lindy's Egg Fest.

Volunteers grilled up everything from eggs and sausage to pizza and veggies for the event.

Delicious dishes were cooked in the versatile Big Green Egg, which can be used as a grill, smoker or oven.

The event is chance for Lindy's Downtown market to get the word out about what this cooker can do and raise money and awareness for the Greater Peoria honor flight.

Volunteer cook Cameron Shearhod said he is glad to be cooking for such a good cause.

"I love to show off the versatility of the egg so this year they let me cook on two of them so I'm doing a nice long smoke and I'll be doing some direct grilling," he said.

"It's events like this that actually really help us out," said Greater Peoria honor flight volunteer Madison Dunaway. "Our flight is totally community funded it's based on donations. So it's nice to see the community support."

Organizers said last year's Egg Fest raised $2,800 and this year they are hoping to hit $3,000.
