Can duck eggs be used as chicken eggs are? Do they have a different taste?
We never ever fried them...evidently they are a bit rubbery if fried? But for baking....OMG you cant beat a duck e*g*g in your batter!
LOL I mean they are really good, not that you cant beat them into it haha
This is supposed to say duck eggs not duck roosters. I guess it's a April Fool's thing!
Thanks for the info. I'll be baking a lot!!!
Yes. I use my duck e-g-g-s just like chicken ones. Except sometimes a large duck e-g-g I count as being 1 1/2 or 2 chicken eggs in the recipe.
My daughter made cupcakes using one duck egg (1 1/2 egg) A banty egg (1/2 egg) and a regular chicken egg. They came out perfect!!!
We got some duck eggs that we ate fried and they were delicious!! My kids said we need to get ducks just for the eggs to eat, and they had been eating free range chicken eggs that are are pretty darn tasty too.
I used duck eggs in a cake mix for the first time ever this weekend-- WOW, what a difference!
I don't think I'll ever use a chicken egg in a baked good again...
duck eggs are delicious! I have them several mornings a week for breakfast, over easy w/toast, mmmmm. I can't discern a taste difference between duck and chicken eggs but duck eggs are larger with a much bigger yolk. DH bought a couple dozen eating eggs from a friend and once I tried them I was hooked! That was about a month ago and now I have 8 ducks of my own.
When I was a child, I was alergic to chicken eggs and my Doctor advised my Mom to buy duck eggs for me. They do not have the same alergens. I grew up on them and never knew the difference. I outgrew my alergies and now can eat both. Duck eggs are a bit richer in flavor. They are slightly higher in cholesterol than chicken eggs. Goose eggs also make the best pound cakes! Try them too!
