Do double yolk eggs count as 1 or 2 eggs?

post #1 of 6

Recently I have been buying fresh eggs from an egg ranch near my home. Most of the large eggs have  double yolk in them. Would you count these as 2 eggs in your recipe or just 1 egg with a bonus yolk?

Weigh a couple out. A large yolk is .75 oz.

 

I think you'll find that they are two smaller yolks inside one egg shell. Since the egg is sized ( lg, jumbo, etc...) the contents are still the same size regardless of the number of yolks inside it.

When I was pregnant with my twins, 4 + out of every carton were double yolks, I love getting them ;-)

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.
