Double-Yolked Happiness


My Mum ordered a batch of double-yolked salted duck eggs and gave 2 of them to me.  This was the second time I’m cracking open an egg with 2 yolks.  The first time was a few months ago and it was a surprise as I didn’t expect it.  I cracked open a chicken egg and was surprised to see two yolks in it.

This time round, it’s a duck egg.  A salted duck egg.

I couldn’t use the duck egg to make char koay teow because it is salted duck’s egg as opposed to a regular duck’s egg, so I decided to make a simple dish of steamed minced pork with eggs instead.

See the 2 yolks in the duck egg in the top left?  Compare that to the 2 chicken eggs in the other bowl.


I had to cut the yolk up into several small pieces before placing them in the steaming dish with the minced pork.

I was worried my kids would not like this dish, but they did! Yay!  It goes really well with rice 🙂

Have you seen an egg with 2 yolks before?  Apparently the ducks were bred to lay these double-yolked eggs.  Not sure how they could guarantee its occurrence though.

    o.0 How on earth did they breed the ducks to ensure that they’d produce double yolked eggs all the time?

    The Giddy Tigress says: I dunno, Rinnah. I tried googling it but could find nothing yet…

    mutation is the answer…….

    The Giddy Tigress says: No la…it’s not uncommon to get these eggs, it’s how twins are produced, no? But how they guarantee it is a question mark.

    Wow I never knew you could find double yoke eggs, what more buying a whole batch of double yoke eggs. Is that what the double yoke mooncake manufacturers use?

    The Giddy Tigress says: Not sure, but I think for mooncakes, they use 2 different eggs. I could be wrong 😛
