    I hard boil them and put them in some pickled beet juice for a few days. Makes a nice two bite snack.

    I typically save mine for a week or so and then boil and use for egg salad.

    Same way I use quail eggs or the huge duck eggs. I bet those banty eggs would make cute deviled eggs.

    Quote:I LOVE IT...I had beet eggs for the first time about 3 months ago..and loved them so much I keep a jar in the refrig. at all times. I like the bantam eggs the best for that because they are the perfect size..and I have lots of them in the summer time..

    Same as any egg. Two instead of one for recipes.

    I have customers who prefer the banty eggs. Some fight over the small blue ones. [​IMG]

    I only have 1 banty along with my other 13 standard hens. I don't sell the banty eggs. We eat them if we are low on eggs, but for the most part, the dogs them about once a week as a special treat, they love them. Sometimes, if somebody calls and wants 2 or 3 dozen eggs, and I'm a dozen short, I'll fill in with the banty eggs, free of charge.

    Kids love banty eggs.

    I don't hard boil because they aren't worth the time peeling them. I love the banty eggs because the yolk is almost as big as a large egg, and I prefer the yok over the whites, so I often fry up 4 or 5 for myself.

    I use only bantam eggs for all my cooking. Just be aware that there is a higher ratio of yolk to white in these eggs. I recently made a rich fruit cake that contained 500gms of butter (New Zealand butter is a creamy bright yellow colour) and 14 free range bantam eggs. The mixture was a bright yellowy/orange colour.....................until I added the last ingredient, 2Tbs of blue berry jam..................and as every artist knows, yellow plus blue equals GREEN...... bright GREEN!!!!! Thank goodness the colour changed as it cooked!
