In this Instructable I'll show you 3 useful egg tricks that will change your life and the way you use eggs.

Here's what you'll need -

  • Eggs

I'll discuss other items in each step to make things less confusing.

Step 1: Watch the Video!

The easiest way to follow along and understand this Instructable, is to watch the video above or on my channel by clicking this link - http://bit.ly/1ODLIwG .

Step 2: Trick 1

You can fry multiple eggs at the same time in a muffin tray.

Add a bit of oil in each cup, add your seasoned eggs and get them perfectly round every time!

Step 3: Trick 2

If you want to avoid peeling another hard boiled egg, then just grab a knife and slice right through them.

Then use a spoon to scoop out the egg from the shell.

Step 4: Trick 3

Separate egg whites by rinsing out a soda bottle. Then squeeze the bottle and carefully place the the opening over the egg yolk.

Slowly release your grip and watch as the yolk gets sucked up into the bottle.

    Adding to these useful tricks... if you want to know if the egg you are about to cook is fresh, just gently submerge the egg in a glass of water. The faster it sinks, the fresher the egg. Floaters are no good. Toss them! to the racoons :)

    I may be wrong but I was told it was the other way around. Forgive me if I'm wrong

    No thats absolutely right -- the air bubble inside the egg grows over time so older eggs will float better.

    Thanks for that I will definitely try it

    Nice method for multiple egg frying (or even baking) and the egg white separation, but I think the peeling of a hardboiled egg might leave egg shell bits on your egg.


    You can use a spoon to filter out the yolk by putting it back and forth to the
    shell (at least half of the shell) until the yolk is fully separated
    from the white. I got this idea from my mother when she is making "leche
    plan" or "cream caramel" as others have called it.
