Mutton Eggs. Ever Tried 'Em?

Mutton Eggs. Ever Tried 'Em?

Wait a minute. Do geriatric sheep lay eggs?

A few nights ago, some friends were sitting around Kavkaz, a restaurant on Coney Island Avenue specializing in the food of the Caucasus (that's a region in the former Soviet Union, not an electoral process), when we spied an unusual dish on the menu styled "mutton eggs w/ potatoes." Hmmm, I didn't think muttons laid eggs," a member of the group thoughfully piped up.

Here's what the entire dish looked like. Pretty, right?

Pale, ovoid, and spongy, the "eggs" really did resemble eggs, and the flavor was appropriately bland, too. They made a wonderful combination with the fried potatoes and onions, the whole thing glistening with grease.

We quickly finished up every morsel. Can you guess what we were eating?
