Turkey Eggs

Domestic turkey eggs. They are about twice the
 size of chicken eggs and significantly heavier.

     It never occurred to me that turkey eggs could be edible. But one of my wife’s coworkers raises turkeys and brought in a bunch of eggs to share. Apparently turkey eggs are very rich and quite a bit more filling than chicken eggs. The Mrs. snagged some for me and I am anxious to try them. I realize turkey eggs are not something most folks are acquainted with. They are white and heavily speckled with tan, and are roughly twice the size of chicken eggs. They weigh quite a bit more (although I have not actually weighed either) and the shells feel more substantial.
     I haven’t decided what to do with them yet. It’s not enough to make a quiche so I am leaning toward scrambled eggs or fried. I might make an omelet but I don’t want to get carried away with adding meat, cheese or vegetables for the sake of not interfering with the taste.
     This seems like an appropriate experiment since turkey season is little more than a month away. But just so it’s clear, come May don’t go raiding turkey nests you find in the woods. You won’t be happy with what you find inside.
