I found a local small farm that delivers all kinds of eggs, particularly chicken, pheasant, and duck eggs. Everything is organic and freshly delivered to your front door. I want to get some duck eggs as I heard they are wonderful, but am looking at the communities favorite ways of preparing them. I appreciate all responses!

Wanted to add this is where I am getting them from in case there are locals nearby and you want to give some feedback on pricing/other ideas:

Jason,

Just use them as you would chicken eggs. An over easy duck egg for breakfast is a real treat, as is an omelet made with them. Just be aware that if you use them in a recipe that they are larger than chicken eggs and adjust accordingly.

You can make flans with duck eggs. Very easy to make.

Bake a cake! Seriously, duck eggs are known by bakers to make high rising, fluffy and rich cakes....

I love coddled duck eggs, but they can take up to 45 minutes.

What CAN'T you do with duck eggs? I absolutely love a gently poached duck egg with bacon and frisee in a salad, at the center of a carpaccio, and--maybe best of all--using the yolk for a pasta carbonara.

Make a thousand-year-old-egg. Or just another plain old salted egg. These are sort of my comfort foo.

The first thing to come to my mind is a traditional mooncake...if you're feeling up to a rather large endeavor anyway.

I found the traditional Scotch Eggs turn out quite well with duck eggs. On a side note mixing in some shreds of hard cheddar cheese and a little bit of Bisquick into the sausage before coating with bread crumbs was advised by a friend and turned out well.

Many people feel just like that. It's not a unique problem.

My experience is that they are perhaps a little richer. Higher yolk to white ratio. I've used them for Stratas ,frittatas and quiches and custards for years. They are virtually indistinguishable when you cook with them by volume.

They have a higher fat content then chicken eggs so they make great baked goods.
