Duck Eggs

DSC_0038

Last Friday, Eagle Wood Farms had duck eggs at the farmers market. According to Food on the Table they are healthier for you but I didn’t know that until I came home and looked it up out of curiosity. I brought them home because Dave does a great job with his animals. We love his chicken eggs (hard healthy shell, full of flavor and brilliant yolks) and have only had duck eggs once before. They are creamy, sweet and rich in flavor. The “monster” shown in the photo was a twin!

I sauted onions, tomatoes and parsley then cracked the eggs on top, covered with a lid until the whites were cooked through and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Xav had his breakfast on an organic sprouted grain tortilla and sprinkled with pecorino romano cheese while I had mine with gluten free organic blue corn chips on the side.
