How to Cook an Ostrich Egg

The season for fresh ostrich eggs in Ontario is from April to September. As most Ostrich Farmers incubate the eggs, it is best to call ahead to the farm of your choice to reserve a fresh egg.

To keep the shell for painting, drill a 1/4 inch hole and shake contents out…great for scrambled eggs keeping in mind that an average Ostrich egg is worth 24 chicken eggs. Use any recipe that you would normally use.

Some people like the idea of no antibiotics or growth hormones, so will do the above and put the mixed egg ( uncooked ) into ice cube trays, cover with saran wrap and freeze. Use two cubes for one egg in recipes.

If you want to do an ” over easy” egg, make sure your pan is large enough!. Take a small hammer and crack the egg, than put in pan, cover and cook from 30 minutes to 45 minutes depending on heat.

ENJOY!
