What a lovely surprise to find big fat duck eggs in my local green grocers ! Not a usual, as they normally just have fresh chicken eggs, I asked the young girl if they were local ? She said “oh not sure I just work here but I think they come from Kent ” So before I could think of a recipe my husband decides he wants two boiled for breakfast with soldiers! Bless. I don’t think I have boiled or cooked a duck egg for a long time so I googled how to boil a duck egg , the general consensus was 6-7 mins in boiling water. Well the frenchie critique (hubby) decided too well done! So my advise is to have a practice first especially if you’re having a dinner party , but if your just doing your husband a very nice breakfast don’t worry too much!!

The recipe also said to break the egg in to a ramakin with cling film inside to make a neat parcel, I first put a little truffle oil & salt & pepper & then the egg on top , they do come out looking rather perfect , but apparently there are concerns about the heating of cling film ! I guess if your eating 6 poached eggs a day 7 days a week then there could be a real health issue , but if like us a couple every so often not a problem! 20140429-224938.jpg
