The Yolk's On Me


I rarely buy Jumbo sized eggs, but they were on sale this week. This morning, I got a double yolked egg! This oddity is as rare as finding a four leaf clover, that needle that's been in the haystack for such a long time. Maybe I should play the lottery? A sign like this, a sign that something is a little extra special about today, is a true gift. The eggs were a part of my crimini mushroom omelet with shavings of parmiggiano reggiano on top. I needed a change from the scrambled eggs and chicken apple sausage breakfast of late. All this is to maintain my high protein low carb diet that I desperately want to make a way of life. It sure does work and you can see results. But there's pasta, and bread, and the food group of mashed potatoes!

According to countryhen.com, chances of double, or even triple, yolks increases with the size of the eggs. Apparently, hens begin their egg-laying life with small eggs, progressing to medium, then large, extra large, and finally jumbo eggs, before they stop laying eggs altogether. I would imagine that you then get double the flavor?

There were 2 distinct yolks and whites, like twin zygotes. They were a bit smaller than the other full size yolk. It would have thrown off a baking recipe.
