Duck Egg Club Bunwich is a decadent and delicious sandwich that is perfect for brunch, lunch or even dinner.
Sometimes a sandwich is just what you crave. We happen to love them for dinner around here. Made in a matter of minutes, and filled with delicious ingredients. Use your imagination to come up with some incredible flavour combinations. The tasty possibilities are endless.
Have you ever tried any exotic eggs? I often see them on cooking shows, but finding them in the local supermarkets around here is a bit of a challenge. Recently a friend of mine told me about a wonderful little goat farm called Haute Goat, located in Port Hope, Ontario. When I did a bit of research, I was so happy to see that I could purchase some duck eggs at the goat farm!! Since we were going to visit our friends, we decided to visit this little farm and get some eggs.
I have always wanted to try different types of eggs so this was my chance to finally get an opportunity to get some. This little farm is so beautiful. What a great place to take the kids. They have tours on Saturday’s. Debbie the owner was so gracious, and the goat products they offer are amazing. Everything from wonderful skin care products to tasty treats such as popcorn, chocolates and fudge. You can even get garlic and of course eggs (chicken and duck).
Have you ever tried duck eggs? If not, you don’t know what you are missing. These little gems are so decadent. Larger than chicken eggs, especially the size of the yolk. We found them to be stronger in taste to a regular chicken egg. The best part was the creaminess of the yolk. Poached eggs certainly took on a whole new twist with these tasty eggs.
After trying them for breakfast, I decided to give them a try in a sandwich. Of course it had to be a bit more than just a fried egg between 2 pieces of bread. These eggs need something special. This Duck Egg Club Bunwich perfectly showcases the rich yolk goodness. Even better you can make them for brunch, lunch or dinner.
You can use whatever ingredients you like for your sandwich. These include rosemary ham, smoked gouda cheese, sliced fresh tomato, and broccoli shoots. A dressing of balsamic vinegar and olive oil on a ciabatta bun, and of course a fried duck egg seasoned with smoked sea salt.
If we are eating sandwiches around here, you can bet they have to be original and fun. These were so good, in fact I think we will have them again for dinner one night this week.
If you have never tried any exotic eggs, I highly recommend you do. I can just imagine these wonderful eggs in baking, crepes, devilled eggs and so much more. Oh my, I just might have to visit Haute Goat a little more often.
