    I'd say scrambled them up with what you like with regular eggs, can't go wrong! My dad used to have goose eggs and use em just like chicken eggs, it's food.

    Goose eggs are similar in taste to duck eggs. The flavor is a little stronger. Not bad - just different.
  4. Goose eggs are sweeter and more filling than chicken eggs. I'd say scramble them like lunachick said. We tried them a time or two and they definately filled us up in no time. You can always use them for baking.
  5. I have a great supply of geese eggs If you bake a cake use one egg . Scramble them they have more yolk then whites .Delicious add chives it tastes wonderful. Use them to bread your meat. I just use them as I would a chicken eggs . I cant taste any difference in them . I even made pickled eggs with them the hardest thing with them is trying to crack the shells they are like rocks the first one I cracked 1 open I hurt my fingers between the skillet and egg shell.

    Since the yolk-to-white ratio is higher than in chicken eggs, they're great for homemade ice cream! And also pancakes/crepes.

    I can't taste any difference between goose eggs and chicken eggs.

    To open them, I usually knock them on the counter until the shell cracks. Then I remove all the cracked pieces of shell, break the membrane, and pull open the egg. I've tried opening eggs with a knife, but I always get small pieces of shell in the bowl and spend an eternity fishing them out.
