    WOW, zzGypsy! Can't wait to try your suggestions.

    I have never tried to scramble my eggs....can't get past the over medium with toast...my very favorite way to eat eggs! I am going to scramble them this morning and try it.

    I just barely read Moose Manor's way of hard cooking the eggs...the same way zzGypsy just described. Since I only get two eggs a day, one of which is smaller, and since I can't quit eating them over medium.......deviled eggs are going to have to wait till my other females are older and start laying. But, I really can't wait to try them!

    My cousin often brings us duck eggs and we've found they make the best cheesecake ever.

    So....just had my first scrambled duck eggs....I liked them. I put a little milk (which I have never done with chicken eggs from the store), and beat the heck out of them. I would have never known they weren't "regular" eggs. I always cook my eggs on high, so I made sure the pan with Pam sprayed in it was nice and hot, dumped them in, scrambled them, worrying the whole time about over cooking.....no problems. They were tasty!

    Funny how people think' gross' when you say duck eggs. Have to admit. Took me some self talk to eat that first egg! All in the perception!

    We have eaten our Pekin duck eggs with milk,butter & cheese scrabbled together. I substitute ducks eggs for chicken eggs in all my recepies too. If you want to turn a regular boxed cake or brownie mix into a great cake, then bake with duck eggs!! I've researched & chefs prefer to bake with ducks eggs. They make everything "poof" my son says. He's right consistency in poofier.

    I used my first mallard egg to coat some fried chicken - yeah - I wimped out.

    Now, I have 2 more perfect Mallard eggs in the fridge, wondering how I will eat them. Tis cool and rainy here, I believe I will wimp out agian and bake.

    The first one was absolutely perfect! I am just chicken when it comes to duck eggs.
