    Had several duck eggs that needed to be used, so I got creative.

    We made hush puppies with them! Best darn hush puppies I ever had. Melted in your mouth. Next time there's a hush puppy cook off, I am so bringing some duck egg ones. [​IMG]

    Gotta try it!!

    I was too, and these hit the spot. I never knew that using duck instead of chicken eggs could make that much difference. Wow it does.

    Shame on you. First you make us hungry, and then you don't even give us the recipe.
    I think I'm going to curl up and cry. [​IMG]

    We just used a basic recipe.

    1 1/2 cup cornmeal (we use corn muffin mix)
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons of baking powder
    1 tablespoon sugar
    3/4 cup milk
    1 duck egg, beaten
    half a large onion chopped fine
    You can add a lot of things here too, like jalapeƱos or various peppers, cheese, etc.

    mix it up and drop spoonfuls in a few inches of oil, either in a fryer or very deep skillet. Turn until all sides golden brown. [​IMG]

    YUMMMMMM!

    I make my cinnamon rolls with duck eggs ... they say that French Chefs ONLY use duck eggs for their pastries. I am just waiting for my Muskovies to start laying... I should get 2 female Indian runners too .. they lay a lot more eggs. Now that I am down to 8 Banties and the 3 ducks... do not have as many eggs as before ... have to settle with Banty eggs - 2 for every one called for in the recipes [​IMG]
    That recipe looks awesome ... thanks for sharing [​IMG]

    I have read the same info on duck eggs and cooking. What makes the duck eggs superior for baking and cooking?
