5 Amazing Egg Hacks You Won’t Believe You Didn’t Know
1. You Can Bake “Hard-Boiled” Eggs In A Muffin Pan
That’s right! Just place the eggs in a muffin pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15-18 minutes. It’s celebrity chef Alton Brown’s secret for making perfect hard-boiled eggs. He also says cooking them in the oven makes for a creamier egg inside. Perfect for making Deviled Egg Sailboats or Hard Boiled Egg Chicks.
2. Sink An Egg In A Glass Of Water To See If It’s Still Fresh.
Spoiled eggs float and fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the glass. Just carefully sink an egg in a glass of water. If it goes straight to the bottom, it means the egg is fresh. However, if the egg floats, it means it is not good anymore so toss it out. Simple and easy trick to check for egg freshness.
3. Grab Broken Eggshells With Another Eggshell
I used to spend a lot of time trying to get those annoying little pieces of eggshells. You can just use a large piece of an eggshell you just peeled to scoop up any broken pieces that escape into your bowl. The shell will attack the pieces like a magnet! It will save you lots of time from chasing them around with your finger or a spoon.
4. Baking Soda In Water Make Eggs Easier To Peel
