Scrambled Ostrich Egg
Source: husband Marcel 2013
Tasting an Ostrich egg was always something my husband wanted to do. As it turns out, we have an Ostrich farm about 10 min. from us in Switzerland. He put in his order for 1 Ostrich egg in the fall of 2012, and in the Spring of 2013, it had been laid. Each egg sells for CHF 32. Each egg is equivalent to about 10-15 eggs, size dependent. He brought the egg home, extracted the yolk and egg white, and we began our scramble for the morning. We were a head count of 7, and it fed us all comfortably with some left over. Give it a try-it tasted like a “normal” egg to us. Enjoy!

Well I doubt you need instructions for scrambled eggs, but here is what we did different. We drilled a 10mm hole in order to save the shell, then the egg was drained and the large cast iron skillett was fired up. Add some herbs, leeks, or onions in a bit of butter, scramble the egg in the bowl, and pour into the warm pan. Cook as you would normally. P.S. We saved the shell to have our kids paint on them. It’s quite a nice project for the kids to paint the large Ostrich shells, and it’s something they can have forever if they don’t break it first! Enjoy the slideshow
