Duck Egg Breakfast
I went back to the awesome Butcherettes' store near me, Lindy & Grundy, and this time they had Duck Eggs! I've only had them at restaurants before, so was so excited to find that they sold them. I know some Farmer's Markets around here sell it, but have never seen them. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, I just knew that I wanted it :o)
I stocked up on other stuff from L&G too...2 whole chickens (the type that are under 3 lbs, not the monster 5 lbrs that you find at the grocery), 6 legs/thighs, 2 huge pork chops & a flank steak. Yes, I will be freezing most of the stuff. I know it's better fresh, but I get uncomfortable when my freezer gets too empty...lol
Since I read that the shells were a little harder than chicken ones, I cracked it into a bowl first. The yolk is such a gorgeous yellow!
I didn't want to make the egg over-easy because I was afraid that I might break the yolk. I cooked it in a cast iron skillet with butter at med-hi heat and just seasoned it with salt, pepper & aji-shio then added a little water then covered it, turned off the heat and cooked until it was done.
With Toast for Hubby...
Look how tall the egg yolk is! I love it!! I should have picked up bacon at L&G too, but I wasn't planning on making breakfast :o( I just had deli ham, so fried that up... I also was low on bread, so hubby had two types of bread...lol One Japanese & One American.
With Rice for Me...
My favorite way to eat fried egg is with rice & soy sauce! I cut it up and then mix it all together...yum!
Look how much yolk there is in just one egg! I know, I'm a pig, I ate 2 eggs...lol The duck egg yolk had a much richer taste than a chicken egg and the white is also firmer.
