Duck Eggs Vs. Chicken Eggs

Escoffier Online’s Chef Mark Dowling discusses the difference between duck eggs and chicken eggs. The duck egg trend is growing fast and is being served in more and more restaurants. Chicken eggs can be found in your local grocery store, while duck eggs are seen popping up in stores across the country.

Chicken eggs tend to be light, while the duck egg has a higher amount of protein and is great to use in baking because they are more sturdy and holdup great. The duck egg is almost twice the size of a chicken egg and has a larger yolk and egg white, which makes an impressive poached egg or fried egg sandwich. Next time you find yourself baking or craving a fried egg try using a duck egg, also called, “the alterna-egg”.
