Emu Egg Quiche

I am enrolled in ‘Urban Forestry Management’ this semester at my local community college. One of my classmates volunteers for a wildlife sanctuary that has emus. We chatted about different types of eggs, as I had recently discovered duck eggs for baking & the richest scrambled eggs ever! She told me the emu were laying eggs at this time & she’d be happy to bring me one.

She brought in the egg to show me, but because the shells are worth between $10 – $30, she gave me the ‘egg’ not the shell. She had blown it out into a container for me.

Just one emu egg is the equivalent to one dozen chicken eggs. Hmmm. What do you make with one dozen eggs… Quiche! I did have to change the proportions in the recipe, but it turned out pretty yummy!!

  1. Wow, 12 eggs? That’s incredible! I’ve seen ostrich eggs used on “Chopped” on the Food Network, but I’ve never known anyone other than a professional chef to use one. Quiche sounds like the perfect idea for that many eggs — otherwise that’s a huge amount of scrambled eggs or omelettes!


Time to fire-up the chair-to-keyboard interface!!!
