About Duck Eggs

Duck eggs are higher in protein content than chicken eggs and have a greater concentration of iron, potassium, vitamin E, B12 and D, but also contain more fat (see nutrition facts).

Cooking with duck eggs isn’t much different than chicken eggs however, the yolks of duck eggs have more fat and the whites more protein than those of chicken eggs. You need to take keep this difference n mind when cooking. Somewhat gentler cooking is the key.
