    • 1 Emu Egg
    • Heavy Whipping Cream (1/2 cup – estimate)
    • 1 medium chopped onion
    • 1/2 Mushroom package
    • 1/2 cup of Goat Butter (maybe a tad more)
    • 8oz bag of shredded cheddar cheese
    • 2 diced garlic cloves (1/4 cup)
    • 1/2 pound chopped Ham
    • 2 chopped Tomatoes
    • 1 large russet potato
    • Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings
    • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings
    • Special Shit Seasonings (yes, that is the correct spice name) (Egg only)
    • Jacobsen Chili Salt (Potato only)


      EMU EGG:

    1. Crack emu egg into a large bowl.
    2. Add 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (want a thick mixture) & whisk.
    3. Add seasonings and whisk See Note 1
    4. In a large frying pan (really a large one), add 1/4 cup butter (maybe more) and melt.
    5. Sauteé onion, garlic, tomato, mushrooms, and ham.
    6. Once the onions are translucent or mushrooms are soft, lower the heat add the egg mixture. Lightly mix the eggs and other ingredients. See Note 2
    7. Use a low heat, cover the frying pan and let the egg cook. Check at 8-10 minutes.
    8. When you check the egg, if it is mostly cooked, add the shredded cheese on top of egg, cover and let cook 3-5 more minutes. See Note 3
    9. Egg is cooked when the egg is no longer runny.

Note 1: Nonna used her favorite spices. However, you can use you favorite spices. Adding tabasco sauce or salt and pepper would likely make for a delicious omelet.

Note 2: Nonna put her gas stove on “2”. You most certainly want a low heat.

Note 3: Nonna checked the egg at 10 mins. It was mostly cooked with just a little uncooked egg on top. She then added the cheese on top, covered the pan and cooked for an additional 5 mins. The total cook time was 15 minutes.



    1. Poke the russet potato with a fork several times on all sides.
    2. Cook the potato in the microwave on high for 2-4 minutes (depends on how big the potato is).
    3. When the microwave beeps, roll the potato over and cook for 2-4 minutes (depends on how big the potato is).
    4. Slice the potato (how thick is up to you, but 1/4 inch is a good place to start).
    5. Melt 1/4 cup goat butter in frying pan.
    6. Place potato slices in the frying pan and season. See Note 4
    7. When the potato slices are golden brown, flip them and season the other side. See Note 4
    8. When the second side of the potato slices are golden brown, removed the potatoes from the heat and eat.

Note 4: Again, Nonna used her favorite seasonings. For the potatoes, she added Jacobsen Chili Salt to give them some kick!
