I am having a lucky day



I have never cracked open a double yolk egg.

I recall when I was young my mum did and the excitement that came from that moment has stuck with me. Yesterday I baked chocolate ramekins for an easy desert for my sisters and I cracked open three eggs and TWO were double yolk! I suddenly cheered up and felt like this is a lucky day. Since doing this I opened more eggs from the same batch to make omelets and there was another double yolk!

P.S. If any one knows of a recipe for 3 - 5 egg yolks I would appreciate it - I hate to waste them!

Growing up we always had chickens in our backyard and often had double-yolkers. It always was exciting though!

Sorry can't help you with the egg yolk recipes but just wanted to say how neat it was that you got 2 double-yolkers and you thought to take a picture of them! Cheers, QGB

A very lucky day indeed! I would make a baked egg custard or some lemon ice cream with those beauties. Yum!

When I was growing up we always had chickens and frequently got double yokers, but I've never had one in a bought box.

Ooh I used to collect the eggs when I visited my aunt's house, and it was such a thrill to get a double yoker! I went to a farmers market once where they were selling whole cartons of them.

Have you ever made ice-cream? If you can find a recipe which uses an egg-yolk custard base, that should take care of a few yolks!
