8 Tricks That Will Completely Change How You Cook Eggs


Making eggs just got so much easier.

Eggs are arguably one of the best and most versatile foods out there. You can eat them for any meal, they pack in plenty of nutrition, and there are so many ways to prepare them. To make things a bit easier (and more interesting!), here are a few genius tricks that will forever change the way you cook eggs.

1. Peel a hard boiled egg in seconds.

With a drinking glass, water, and a bit of shaking, the shell will just pop right off.

2. Make sure you pick the freshest eggs.

To select the freshest eggs at the grocery store, according to LifeHacker, you want to look at the three digit number, not the sell by date, and always select the highest number you can find.

3. Try on a new twist on the classic egg-in-a-hole recipe.

Infuse some flavor into your eggs by baking them inside something healthy, such as onions or bell pepper rings. Get the full tutorial at One Little Project.

4. Ditch the pots and pans.

Try alternative methods of preparation: Use an espresso machine to scramble eggs, or make an overnight casserole in your slow cooker.

5. Extend freshness.


Make eggs last longer by storing them on your fridge’s shelf instead of the door’s egg container. You can also freeze eggs in ice cube trays.

6. Test for bad eggs.

Fill a bowl with water and place the egg inside. If it sinks to the bottom, it’s good. If it floats, it’s bad.

7. Scramble an egg inside its shell.

This brilliant trick allows you to scramble an egg without ever cracking it open. Goodbye mess, dirty dishes, and oodles of prep time.

8. Bake eggs into biscuits.
