The truth is most of us eat eggs every day, often for breakfast, and often whether we know we are eating them or not. Eggs are also essential in many dishes that you can’t even tell have eggs in them just by looking. Cakes would fall apart without eggs (or at least ingredients that served the same purpose). The egg acts like a glue to hold everything else together. That’s also why you put eggs in meatloaf and other foods that don’t easily hold together on their own. Eggs are also used to bast bread to give loafs that appealing golden glow. The uses of eggs in cooking are nearly endless.
So we’ve established we use eggs a lot, but do we really know the extent of their awesomeness? Do you know how to make scrambled hard-boiled eggs, for example? What about how to bake eggs instead of boil them? Do you know the easiest way to peel hard boiled eggs? For answers to these questions and many more, check out the video below.
Of course, some of the tricks are simply fun things you can do with eggs, like the egg balancing trick, and are only useful for entertainment and not really practically useful. However, most are awesome cooking tricks. Using the microwave to cook different types of eggs saves on dishes and on time, and the taste difference between stove-top cooked eggs and microwave cooked eggs are minimal, if you do it right. It’s also great to be able to get those diner eggs when you want some scrambled eggs. The trick is simple, but the end result shows all the difference in texture and tastes. Not to mention baking eggs instead of boiling them is considerably easier and generally produces better quality hard-boiled eggs. Try it and see for yourself.
