    I have a question about goose eggs. My girls are slowing down laying, and I want to try a goose egg. Do they taste like chicken eggs, or are they more tasty. I was thinking of making goose egg scrambled eggs.

    Any thoughts?

    I haven't actually eaten them plain myself. I gave one of my goose eggs to my neighbor and he was not fond of it... he said it was REALLY strong. When I raised ducks, I did eat their eggs once, but I thought they were too strong to be eaten plain. I just use my goose eggs for baking and I've even used them in a meatloaf. The work GREAT! One goose egg is the equivalent to 2 large chicken eggs.

    Hope this helps!

    Maybe I will use it to make chocolate chip muffins then. The recipe calls for 2 eggs.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    the goose eggs are good to bake with they are richer than hen eggs we use them in cakes all the time.

    I've read that duck and goose eggs are UNSURPASSED when used for baking, but that they aren't as great for eating. I guess people are so used to eating mild flavored chicken eggs that duck eggs kinda throw them off. Good luck, and let us know how they turn out if you do try to eat them plain!!!

    I like using goose egg for French Toast! 1 egg goes farther then say: 4-6 chicken eggs. [​IMG]

    I eat my Muscovy duck eggs for breakfast everyday fried or scrambled. I think they taste just fine and the average person would not know the difference. My geese are not old enough to lay yet so i ahevn't tried them yet.
    Duck eggs have a little more yellow than a chicken egg, but taste very similar. we mix them all the time when cooking.

    I sold some to an asian family that put them in a bowl of very salty water for 2 weeks in the fridge and then boil them. They just love them that way but I never tried it so dont know for sure. Jenn
