    My family refuses to eat the duck eggs. they think they are gross. i feel bad just throwing them away, i think they should go to good use! should i just sneak some duck eggs into something i make and THEN tell them after they eat it what was in it? once our eggs hatch and the two girls we are going to keep grow up, we will end up with THREE eggs a day!!!! we will probably end up giving some away. but i think we should eat some. we'd never have to buy eggs again!

    shhhh! they will never know....time to be a ninja and sneak some duck eggs into the fridge. maybe i can disguse them with some chicken eggs...size difference might tip them off though.

    Start baking my dear. Or sneak in the kitchen tomorrow morning and tell everyone you are making breakfast and sneak the eggs into an omlette.

    I would'nt even tell them... I have had family and friends that refuse to eat my eggs... I snuck some in and after 10 minutes of " Wow this is good" I told them they were my own eggs and they spit them out and refused to eat my food again... Sucks to be them, cause I can cook... So I just don't tell people anymore and they eat my food and are non the wiser.

    Quote:You could just keep it to yourself. Make scrambled eggs with stuff in them like sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions, grated cheese, chopped smoked salmon, chopped green onions, cubes of ham, little pieces of cooked bacon.... so many things go well in scrambled eggs. A little leftover rice and a splash of soy sauce and you have fried rice, just brown the rice a little first, add a few veggies/meat when you add the eggs. Might even get away with egg mcmuffins -- break the egg into a ring and break the yolk, then cheese and some sort of breakfast meat. Use flavorful stuff that will mask the slightly different flavor of egg. Egg foo young should work as well, if you have access to fresh bean sprouts.

    Of course, baking is the best disguise; depends how much cake you guys eat!
