Hello, I've been wondering if a Large duck egg would be the same as 2 chicken eggs in a recipe?
That is what I do!
I've wondered that same thing! So would a bantam egg count as half? or 3/4?
Quote:Thanks.. duck eggs would generally taste the same as the chicken eggs right? My DH couldn't tell the difference when they were scrambled other than they were fresh.
Quote:I think I would just use 2 bantam eggs. Some recipes require "large" eggs. Those, I would use 2 bantam eggs for 1 large egg. I couldn't imagine trying to get a 3/4 of an egg.
I would count one duck egg from my khaki as 2 chicken eggs.
Quote:Thanks.. I have a Cayuga and a White Crested and the eggs are HUGE! So I will use one of those in place of the 2 chicken eggs! I just didn't know if the yolks would be the issue. The duck egg yolks are large but I don't know if it would equal 2 chicken yolks.
Guess which one is the duck egg
Do you have a small kitchen or diet scale available? I weight eggs of "usual" sizes to make them work out in recipes correctly. In most recipes, size large is assumed.
Here are weight standards...
Jumbo - 30 oz per dozen / 2.5 oz per egg
Extra Large - 27 oz per dozen / 2.25 oz per egg
Large - 24 oz per dozen / 2.0 oz per egg
Medium - 21 oz per dozen / 1.75 oz per egg
Small - 18 oz per dozen / 1.5 oz per egg
Quote:Thanks for the measurements! This will come in handy..
