I love eggs. I've eaten chicken eggs, quail eggs, duck eggs and now turkey eggs. Turkey eggs? Doesn't even seem accessible and they are not to most people. My mother recently gave me a dozen fresh eggs from her chickens and they were so colorful! Light blue, brown, tan and cream colored eggs and there was even one with red speckles.
Not thinking anything of it, I scrambled it up with some others and ate it with toast. My mom later informed me that her midget white turkey has been laying speckled eggs! Oh no! I wish I had known- being the egg geek that I am, I really wanted to see if there was a flavor difference. I was given another turkey egg to try. This time I fried it over easy in a little butterDuck eggs are rich in flavor and quail eggs have a unique taste to them so I thought for sure there would be some dramatic difference. The shell of the turkey egg is harder than that of a chicken egg and the yolk is slightly richer, but beyond that, there was no taste difference. However if I had to choose between a chicken egg or turkey egg, it would be a turkey egg all the way.
