duck, duck, egg.

March 13, 2014

mr. skipper was on his way over and i was wandering around the grocery store trying to decide what to make for my newish friend who immediately felt like an old favorite.  so i decided to make an old favorite with a newish friend – a blt topped with a fried duck egg.  do we need to discuss the deliciousness that is a blt?  smoky, chewy bacon with bits of fat, juicy tomato & crisp lettuce.  but look at that egg!  when you bite into the soft yolk it will make a little sauce with the mayonnaise, run down your chin & your fingers & make you happy.  promise.


blt with a duck egg (makes 4 )
16 slices pepper bacon, thick-cut (about 1 ½ – 2 lbs)
8 slices wheat bread, very lightly toasted
12 leaves butter lettuce
2 ripe tomatoes, thickly sliced
salt & pepper to taste
4 duck eggs, fried*

in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, high bacon until some fat has rendered but not all & bacon is still soft.  remove from pan & place on a towel to drain.

generously spread each slice of bread with mayonnaise, setting four aside.  top four remaining slices with 3 leaves of lettuce, several slices of tomato, a sprinkle of salt & pepper & 4 slices of bacon.  slide a fried egg onto each sandwich and top with remaining slices of bread.

*some say that duck egg whites, because of their albumen (the protein in egg whites which is higher in duck eggs than in chicken eggs) can become rubbery when fried.  i fry mine at a medium temperature – just keep an eye on them so they don’t overcook.

    Ik moet nog ontbijten terwijl ik dit lees! Dan wordt het wel geen eendenei maar een kippeneitje zal ook gaan smaken. Ziet er heerlijk uit!

    For some reason I find the idea of a duck egg repulsive…even though it’s not rational. However, this morning I re-fried white and sweet potatoes and some onions, fried a chicken (regular) egg and poured it over the vegetables and Iw as very happy. Wish I could speak Dutch.
