Deviled Ostrich Egg





Introduction: Deviled Ostrich Egg

About: I run Neal's CNC in Hayward, CA, an expert CNC cutting and fabrication service. Check out what we do at I'm a founding member of Noisebridge, a hackerspace in San Francisco, and Ac...

My boyfriend bought an ostrich egg on a whim, and last night we devilled it. Tastes mostly like a chicken egg but smoother... the white is a bit more jelly-like, or perhaps we overcooked it. We boiled it for almost two hours, after all! It was rather hard to deal with even post-boiling, but we beat it into submission with a hammer.

In order for our ostrich egg to invoke Cute Overload's Rule of Cuteness #7 (A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute), we also made some 'regular' deviled eggs. Aren't they cute together?

    did you really used a hammer to crack the egg shell?????

    Thats so good i do it all the mu neibors have an ostich

    That's pretty metal

    The jelly like texture is the new thing in boiled eggs. So I guess you did it right.

    Wow, thats awesome! Where does one get an ostrich egg on a whim?

    You should have ringed them all with devilled quail eggs!

    Wow! Very Cool. Where did you purchase the egg? was it expensive/

    It's customary here to throw eggs at policymakers if they really do a bad job. Kohl was egged more than once, so was Schröder and even Frau Merkel. But of course uncooked eggs are used and nothing bigger than a chicken egg :).

    An egg that big would probably be considered a political grenade! Frau Merkel would be in trouble if she got hit by one of those!

    Wow. That one helluva an egg.

    That is amazing! Where does one buy an ostrich egg?

    Wow! How many calories in one of them? (Did you put oil in the water?) L
