Double the Fun

Look what hubby and i found in the grocery!

You could imagine my excitement as we placed the carton in our grocery cart! i could almost see my sunny side up eggs with two yolks!!!

So that weekend hubby surprised me with breakfast…actually i already knew i was getting breakfast but it was so nice that he woke up early to cook for me!

You can identify the double yolk eggs right away from the normal chicken egg by its size

Apparently, double yolk eggs are rare. They are found in 1 out of 1000 eggs. And since it is genetically impossible to produce double chicks in one shell, it is impossible to have a hen that produces these eggs consistently…or so i read…now i wonder how they can sell these eggs by the carton…genetic engineering…

Aside from genetics, these eggs may be produced by young hens whose egg production cycles are not yet in synch and thus the anomaly.

Paired *pun intended* with our favorite palm chili corned beef and delicious fried rice…our eggs definitely double the fun!

  5. Have you tried eggs from grass fed, free ranged hens? Deep orange colored yolks, not malansa. I take it raw…and of course sunny side up, soft boiled, leche flan etc
