Types of Eggs

Chicken Eggs
Chicken Eggs

Egg yolk peritonitis results from egg yolks diverting into the abdominal cavity of hens, or from rupture or lodging of thin-shelled or otherwise malformed eggs in the oviduct. (Thin-shelled eggs are common in layer hens because the birds do not have sufficient calcium stores to produce such a high rate of shells).

Duck Eggs
Duck Eggs

Duck Egg Nutrition They have a higher (good!) fat content. Ducks eggs are higher in protein than chicken eggs. They also have a little bit more cholesterol than chicken eggs (again, this is a good thing!) They also contain more vitamins and minerals- such as iron, B12, folate and vitamin A. They are full of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Emu Eggs
Emu Eggs

A $30 egg at the grocery store or $90 egg dish at a restaurant sounds pretty outrageous (or just right for NYC prices, depending on how you look at it), but emu eggs aren't just any ordinary chicken egg. First of all, one emu egg weighs about two pounds, or the equivalent of roughly 12 chicken eggs. “It’s kind of like a kitschy delicacy … It was like a pterodactyl egg. It was huge!” a diner at Louro told the New York Post. Size, however, isn't the only trait that sets emu eggs apart.

Goose Eggs
Goose Eggs

Knowing that a large chicken egg, which is what is called for in most recipes, measures 1/4 cup is helpful when substituting goose eggs for chicken eggs in recipes. 2. Goose Eggs Have Bigger (and Better) Yolks. Goose eggs have a noticeably higher yolk-to-white ratio than chicken eggs, which can lead to heavier, moister, denser baked goods.

Hard Boiled
Hard Boiled

I love hard boiled eggs. They’re great for deviled eggs, egg salad, or just eating plain with a sprinkle of salt. Used to be that people were scared of eating eggs because of the cholesterol in the egg yolks.

Over Easy
Over Easy

An egg cooked "over easy" means that it gets fried on both sides, but it's not cooked for very long on the second side, so the yolk doesn't get cooked through and stays runny. To make one, you cook the raw egg just until the whites are set on the bottom, then you quickly flip it over to cook the other side.

Watch our how to cook an over easy egg video below. Over medium: This time, the flipped egg cooks for a minute or two, long enough to partly set the yolk but still leave it a little creamy (yet not thin and runny). If you know what your yolk is like from a 7-minute soft-boiled egg, you know what you get with over-medium.

Soft Boiled
Soft Boiled

Boiled eggs are eggs (typically chicken eggs) cooked with their shells unbroken, usually by immersion in boiling water. Hard-boiled eggs are cooked so that the egg white and egg yolk both solidify, while for a soft-boiled egg the yolk, and sometimes the white, remain at least partially liquid.

Soft Scrambled
Soft Scrambled

To soft scramble eggs, first crack 3 pasteurized eggs into a bowl, then add 3 tablespoons of milk—skim, lowfat or nonfat versions are all fine. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Whisk the eggs and milk together until well mixed. Meanwhile, melt a tablespoon of butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Sunny Side Up

What Are Sunny-Side-Up Eggs? An egg cooked "sunny-side up" means that it is fried just on one side and never flipped. The yolk is still completely liquid and the whites on the surface are barely set. You can cover the pan briefly to make sure the whites are cooked or baste them with butter.

Turkey Eggs
Turkey Eggs

For one thing, turkeys lay eggs much less frequently than other birds; a chicken or a duck lays about one egg per day, but a turkey lays at most about two per week. Turkeys are also more expensive to raise in a factory setting, requiring much more space and food than a chicken.
