Storing and Cooking Eggs

Did you know that eggs absorb odors? If you keep your eggs in a confined space like the refrigerator you should always keep them covered. Ignore those egg holders that are built into your refrigerator door. Eggs are better off kept in their padded cartons where they can't soak up odors from other foods.

If you tend to keep eggs in your refrigerator for a long time, you might start to wonder if your eggs are still fresh. To test an egg for freshness, fill a cup with water and add two teaspoons of salt. Gently place the egg in the water. If it sinks, it's still fresh. If it floats, it has gone bad.

When you're blending eggs into a mixture, eggs will combine better with other ingredients if they're at room temperature. All you need to do to warm them quickly is put them in a bowl of warm water and wait 10 or 15 minutes before using. (Never try to warm eggs in the microwave. They'll explode!)

It's very easy to whip up unbelievably fluffy omelets and scrambled eggs. All you need to do is add one quarter teaspoon of cornstarch for each egg you're using, and beat the mixture together well. Once cooked, your omelet or scrambled eggs will be much lighter and fluffier than they've been before.

You can easily make your scrambled eggs taste better and go further. The secret for delicious, fluffy scrambled eggs is adding some bread crumbs to your mixture. Simply beat bread crumbs into the eggs before scrambling. You'll get more great-tasting servings per egg.

Make breakfast time a little more exciting for your family by making different shaped fried eggs. All you need to do is hunt out some shaped metal cookie cutters. You can get them in shapes like stars, bells, trees, or flowers. Place your chosen cutter in the frying pan and spray generously with cooking spray. Break your eggs directly into the metal cookie cutter. When you've finished cooking the egg, it should slip easily from the cookie cutter in a fun shape, to the delight of all.

Do you like to make devilled eggs? Are you looking for ways to make them a little bit fuller? It's not hard to do! When you have boiled your eggs and cut them in half, mash the boiled yolks with some cottage cheese, then season and stuff as usual. Your eggs will taste and look great.
