Cooking Snake Eggs

Warning: Never cook a snake egg if “Spawn” appears on the side of its container, or on the egg itself.

Most snake eggs are non-poisonous. Poisonous varieties have no specific identifying features.

Most snake eggs are emetic by nature. Failure to prepare them properly will cause them to come up quicker than they went down.

Never mix snake eggs with the eggs of frogs, toads, lizards, or rodents.

When cooking snake eggs, stir the bubbling mass with a monkwood spatula.

Use a lot of food coloring.

Cook until done. Keep cooking.

Not recommended for birthday parties for the young.

Confirm that the “snake” was not a worm.

Turn down flame if a hissing sound is heard.

Snakes do not got legs. Discard anything below the hips.

In the context of snake-egg cookery, “snake eyes” is not a good thing.

“Cultured” snake eggs aren’t really.

Marital tip: When arguing with your husband, shout “Snake!” and plop down a plate of snake eggs in front of him at the breakfast table.
