I have been given an ostrich egg. It’s fresh and unfertilised.
Ostrich eggs are the largest of all eggs, On average they are 15 centimetres long, 13 centimetres wide, and weigh 1.4 kilograms, over 20 times the weight of a chicken egg. They are glossy cream-coloured, with thick shells marked by small pits.
I would like to attemp to make something different with it. Most recipes on the internet talk about a savory type of egg scramble, or frittata’s. Frying and boiling have been done too but that does not appeal to me. I would like to keep the shell so I will have to drain the egg and wont be able to keep the yolk whole.
Ostrich egg souffle anyone? Or quiche?
What other recipes use a lot of eggs?
