How to Cook Goose Eggs

How to Cook Goose EggsGoose eggs can be intimidating because most of us aren't used to them. But it's good to experiment, so if you're touring a farm and find some goose eggs for sale, give them a try. You might enjoy a slightly different rendition of the traditional omelet. Goose eggs have a higher fat content than chicken eggs-- which makes for creamy scrambled eggs and omelets--but they don't tend to work well for frying.
 

Instructions

Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp. fresh herbs
  • 2 tbsp. shredded cheese
 
Step 1
Crack one goose egg into a mixing bowl and whisk with a pinch salt and pepper until blended. You can add a little milk or water to thin if you like. One goose egg is equal to two regular-sized chicken eggs, so one should be plenty for an omelet.
Step 2
Heat a lightly oiled saute pan on low to medium heat.
Step 3
Pour the egg mixture into the pan and turn down the heat to a low setting. Due to the density of goose eggs, they'll take slightly longer to cook than chicken eggs. Using a low heat prevents the egg from burning.
Step 4
Cook the egg until it becomes fluffy. Add a little cheese, herbs or meat onto the egg and fold for an omelet.
Step 5
Remove the omelet from the heat and serve immediately.
 

Tips & Warnings

 
For scrambled eggs, continue to whisk the egg while it cooks on a medium heat.
 
For a hard-boiled egg; boil in lightly salted water for 10 to 15 minutes.
 
Check with the farmer to assure you that the eggs are infertile before you buy.
