5 second rule

The other morning as I was cracking an egg for breakfast, the shell cracked so smoothly that it fell with the inside of the egg into the sink...gah!
I then picked up the yolk which was super fresh because it stayed intact.

I then rinsed it and added it to another egg which I scrambled.

I know we are all about anti-bacteria these days, but I couldn't see myself wasting an egg.

I didn't know that freshness of eggs affect the yolk. Wonder why some yolks break and others don't. Main thing you cooked it too!

I have never seen the entire yolk and white contained in the membrane like that....it looks like a super huge litchi!

Take care everyone.

When I worked in restaurants - we'd always use the older eggs for boiled eggs and the fresher eggs for poached as the whites would be "tighter".
