A better way to crack an egg!!!
I learned the neatest thing and just had to share it with y'all!!!!
Every time I crack open an egg, I will either crack it against the corner of a bowl or on the counter. Sure, it cracks open, but it always cracks into a crazy maze of cracks and usually will indent the egg and, oftentimes, will get a small amount of the shell into the egg white when I pour it into the bowl. Does this happen to y'all?
I read recently (and I am sorry to say that I have completely forgotten where I read it) that if you crack an egg on top of a towel, the break will be a straight line every time. I've done it every time since I read that and it DOES work!!! Every time the crack is in a straight line and I haven't gotten any extra little shell pieces that end up in the egg white!!! What a wonderful "trick" to learn!!!!
