Turkey Eggs

March 30th, 2016

Someone asked on Monday whether or not the turkeys are laying – YES!!! I’m actually drowning in turkey eggs, which isn’t bad because they’re delicious!

Turkey eggs are beautiful, large, slightly pinkish, and speckled. The yolks are huge, they pretty much taste like chicken eggs.

I’m planning on using these beauties for ice cream, when we have a flush of eggs I make semifreddo, because it’s so much easier than ice cream. This recipe from Food 52 I usually use as a starting point.

What’s your favorite way to enjoy extra eggs?

    Those are beautiful! We rarely have extras but I can’t get enough scrambled eggs.

    Who knew turkeys laid speckled eggs? Well, people that raise turkeys do! :) Beauties! Do you allow any of them to hatch or do you have enough turkeys?
    Can’t wait to try that semifreddo! Sounds quite yummy!
