Today we decided to try some turkey eggs for breakfast. We got them from some friends for helping them out by shoveling snow off their roof. They didn't have much money and we didn't expect any from them but they did reward us with a box of groceries and some turkey eggs. I really enjoyed these eggs. There is not much of a difference in taste or any at all. The only difference is the size of the eggs which are 3 times bigger and you will find two yokes rather than one. They were fluffier than chicken eggs too. Makes really nice scrambled eggs. Have you tried turkey eggs? What do you think about the taste?

I have never even seen Turkey Eggs, so I have never had the opportunity to try them. I am sure they are much bigger than a chicken egg. I am guessing you would probably have to get them from people who raise Turkey's or something.

I would say yes that you would have to get the turkey eggs from people who raise turkeys. They are three times the size of a regular egg and have double yokes in them. Very yummy. Thanks for your comment

i wouldn't even know where to get them around here. i wonder if cakes and things could be made from them?certainly might be more economical due to size..

The people who we got these turkey eggs from told us to try baking with them and using them for cakes because the eggs make things turn out so much more fluffier and the quality in taste is so much better. When hubby made those scrambled eggs they were 3 times fluffier so I can imagine how much more good would come out if I tried baking with them. Thanks for your comment

Turkey eggs? No I have not tried them. I don't know where one could buy them either or are they just produced for home consumption? Anyway what I want to ask you: do they have the taste of a hen's egg or do they taste really eggy (sulfuric) like some other birds eggs such as quails eggs.

The way I tried them was scrambled. There is not much difference than a chicken egg except they just bring out the taste of better tasting eggs. It's not a sulfuric taste though. I've never tried quail eggs either so I can't say that I would know to compare to those.

I never have but I would like to. I'm not sure if they are the kind of thing that you can find at the grocery store though. I have been substituting turkey for a lot of things lately (turkey sausages, ground turkey etc) because it's so lean and versatile. Turkey eggs are now on my list of things to try!

If you know of any turkey farms around I'm sure you could get them from there. I lived beside an owner of a turkey farm but never once did I think about asking for eggs. I guess I could take a ride over there and ask again. Thanks for your comment

I have never tried them and I didn't even know you could use them like chicken eggs....that's very unusual! I don't know that I would try them either....but how you described them they sound delicious...

They are really delicious! Now that I tried them I don't want to go back to chicken eggs and now that I don't want to go back to chicken eggs I'll probably have a hard time finding turkey eggs! Thanks for your comment

They are very yummy! I enjoyed them very much. I would like to try baking with them and see if there is much of a difference. The people who we got them from said baking with them is really good. Thanks for your comment
