Tuesday Tip // Retrieving Eggshells

There are few things as stubborn as a bits of broken shell in a bowlful of cracked eggs, and I’ve got the best tip for quickly fishing them out. I’d actually heard this tip from a few different friends over the years, but, for some reason, I didn’t buy into it. Instead, I would torture myself trying to fish that slippery little bit out with a spoon or a fork. Until one frustrated day, I gave up on using a utensil and did what those friends had recommended. I simply dipped one of the empty eggshell halves in to scoop out the broken piece…and, let me tell you, this trick works flawlessly every time.
PS…my favorite way to enjoy scrambled eggs.
