The Right Way to Crack an Egg

I know, I know, you're thinking, "what on earth? Everyone knows how to crack an egg!)

Well, I always thought I did too:

1. Hit egg against rim of bowl.

2. Put fingers in crack and pull apart.

3. Let white and yolk fall into the bowl.

4. Fish out egg shell bits.

I guess the "right way" might be common knowledge, but I didn't discover it until a few days ago, so just pretend like you're interested.

What I was doing wrong:
    Cracking it on the rim of the bowl...
                                                               goes so. Much. Better. When you crack it on a flat surface. This make it have the perfect sized web of cracks to put your thumbs in before pulling the two halves of egg shell apart. Really.

You're bored? Oh... Sorry.... I thought it was pretty smart.... I'll try to keep my post a a bit more interesting in the future...

 Question of the day: was this news to you, or have you always done it this way?


  1. Honestly, I have always done it this way but wasn't quite sure why! Now I know! Great tip :)

    1. Thanks; I felt rather silly posting this, but this knowledge has helped me so much in the kitchen that I just had to!

  2. Okay, this was definitely news to me, but it really makes sense! So, thanks for this! Who told you?

    1. Glad it helped! I just figured it out over time... I paid attention to what I did differently when it cracked well and when it didn't!
