    My daughter decided on eggs and toast for dinner last night.
    (We were having chili.. and she doesn't like it)

    So... she wanted the biggest duck egg and one of the D'uccle eggs.....

    I cooked them in a 10 inch frying pan and they were yummy!
    The only difference in the duck egg was that the white part was more white than a chicken egg when cooked.

    Here is the process. oh.. the duck egg was a double yolker too!

    So, do duck eggs taste the same when fried? I told my husband that I would like a couple of ducks for duck eggs...but he said he would NOT eat them. I couldnt' figure out why. The idea is weird to him. Which made me start second guessing myself. They look the same...they look as if they cook the same....do they taste pretty much the same?
