What to do with duck eggs?

I've been given a dozen duck eggs and I've no idea how to use them up. I'll do a Victoria sponge tomorrow and maybe some buns with the children, but other than that I'm out of ideas. Can anyone suggest anything freeze-able??

Quiche with duck eggs, once you have tried it you will never go back.
Fried, scrambled or omelettes, we often have a dozen duck eggs a week to dispose of, it really is no hardship grin

Really? I had been told that they taste very strong just cooked, so I was thinking of baking them into something. I'll try scrambled tomorrow smile

They are very rich, they do not taste ducky or anything else weird.
I know what you mean though, I was given a turkey egg and had to be really brave to eat it (it was fine).

Ooh duck eggs are delicious poached or boiled as well! They have a much nicer tasting white, less “eggy”. Mmm fancy egg now...

My parents always seem to have 'strange' eggs - duck, goose, quail, Turkey etc
The other week they fave my DC scrambled eggs made with pheasant eggs!

Aren't you fancy, Bastardingcough?? wink

OK, I love boiled eggs but I'm not very good at boiling them. Can someone tell me how to get a perfectly booked duck egg?

Duck eggs make the best creamiest custard, so use them in a baked custard open tart or as custard to serve with a fruit tart, or as creme anglaise sauce with poached fruit.

Duck eggs are superb.
I use them as hen eggs but so much nicer.
Poached, with some good quality bacon....heaven

Grainne get your room temp eggs in a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil then take off the heat, leaving eggs in the hot water for a further 5 / 6 mins for a soft egg.

Ha! Hardly!
Parents are just rural. The local gatekeeper gave them the pheasant eggs as they were double yolkers and apparently no good for breeding.

Thanks wishing, breakfast is sorted.

Is custard freezer proof Ada?
