Fluffier scrambled eggs
Nothing is simpler than scrambling some eggs and stacking them on a piece of bread. But just because it’s simple doesn’t mean there are no ways to make them better. And by better, we mean fluffier. For nice and fluffy scrambled eggs, simply add milk or cream to your eggs. For a healthier/lactose-free alternative, just add some water. Remember to constantly stir as you cook and use low heat.
Healthier eggs Benedict
While extremely popular, eggs Benedict aren’t exactly the healthiest dish on the breakfast menu. Ham, buttered muffins, and artery-clogging hollandaise sauce kind of get in the way of you maintaining a healthy level of cholesterol. Try a healthier version of the dish. This means you’ll have to swap some of the ingredients for healthier alternatives: the English muffins will make way for roasted sweet potatoes/beefsteak tomatoes; the regular hollandaise can be swapped for homemade avocado hollandaise made of a small avocado, lemon juice, water, and salt and pepper.
Easily separate yolks and whites
Most of an egg’s protein is in its white. The whites also contain less fat, calories, and cholesterol, which makes them pretty awesome. In order to make yourself an egg-white omelet, you’ll have to separate the whites from the yolk. The easiest way to do that would be by using a funnel. But if a funnel is too fancy for you, you can just use your hand: crack the egg over the palm of your hand and watch the yolk stay there as the white trickles into a bowl. Remember to wash your hands after!
Do the water test
When did you get your last carton of eggs? How do you know if they are still fresh enough to use? Simple. All you need is a glass of water. Dunk the egg in the water and give it a second. If it drops all the way to the bottom — go ahead and use it. If it floats — it’s no good.
