    I'm sure we got our first goose egg (Pilgrim) last night. If you are wondering, yes, I have a pair and yes, it could be fertile, BUT no, I do not want baby goosies right now. SO,,what do you do with it for cooking? When I searched,, guess what comes up the most? The goose egg you get on your forehead when bumped good and hard.[​IMG]
    Any suggestions for cooking/baking with this huge egg?

    You might have to age it a bit, but they make dynamite hard boiled eggs. Our granddaughter had the best time eating her hardboiled 'goose egg.' Otherwise, it is much like any other egg, just a lot more of it. My daughter told me one goose egg makes enough scrambled egg for 2 adults & 2 children~! I've also used them to bake cookies (double batch).

    I baked a batch of sugar cookies with my first goose egg...delicious! Omelets, cakes, all of that is good with a goose egg...that yolk is reeeeeally thick!

    I agree with the baking as I use my duck eggs for that. I did read that the goose egg has a lot more yolk than white. Wont that alter the cooking? I also thought that the goose egg is a bit rubbery so baking would be ideal over scrambled eggs? Greyhorse, is the goose egg much like a chicken egg but like you said, "more of it"? What about the texture?

    We love duck eggs, which is a bit richer/thicker than a chicken egg. Goose eggs are much like duck eggs, just a lot more ... probably 2-3 duck eggs worth or 3-4 chicken eggs worth. If you think you might not like the thicker/richer taste right off, blend in with some chicken eggs.
