The Pillsbury Crescent and Holiday Plates giveaway is still going...enter here. Seems silly, but I have been cracking eggs like this all my life. The wrong way... Against the edge of a counter, bowl or other sharp object. Dealing with itty bits of shells swimming in egg goo, chasing the tiniest piece of egg shell with a spoon, fork, or finger.
In response to pieces of egg shells in a cookie or dish, my mother would tell me, "Oh, a little bit of extra calcium can't hurt you..."Sorry, mom. I can't deal with egg shell floaties...or crunchies...
Not too hard, or you will have egg all over the counter.
A straight line.......
Easily opened and NO itty bits of egg shells! Whoo hoo!
Don't ask me how or why this works. It's a physics problem.
I had a lot of practice of egg crackin' in preparation for my roll class....22 eggs in all ~ I haven't learned to open the egg with one hand. Yet.
If you DO happen to get a piece of egg shell in there, try dishing it out with a large piece of egg shell, another sweet tip from a friend of mine.
Just one quick word of caution. Do not, under any circumstances, throw the egg shells into the sink disposal. Trust me on this. I learned the hard way.
Now, get crackin'!
