Just when you began to think that all of the known possibilities of egging (a phrase meaning, “to egg,” FYI) have been completely exhausted, someone comes along and changes the egg making game forever. Hard boiled eggs and scrambled eggs are likely the two easiest ways to prepare eggs that you could possibly come up with, and YouTube user Nighhawkinlight has apparently hatched a forward-thinking idea that combines the best of both worlds: The hard-boiled scrambled egg.
Here is a short video that I thought would be appropriate for Easter weekend. A few tips to make sure that this works right: You can hold the eggs up to a light before boiling to check if they have been properly scrambled. A scrambled egg will let only a small amount of red tinted light through, a normal egg will be much brighter and have a yellow tint. Be sure that the strings or rubber bands are tightly on the sleeve or the egg will be out of balance and be impossible to spin fast enough for it to work properly. Also, the eggs are weakened by doing this and sometimes tend to pop if cooked in water at a full boil. To cook properly, place in water on the stove and heat until it’s hot enough that bubbles start forming on the shells, but not at a full boil, then turn off the burner and let the eggs sit in the pot for 15 minutes. When the time’s up dump the eggs in cold water to cool them quickly so they don’t overcook.
I haven’t tried these bad boys yet, but rest assured that once we eat through our Easter egg surplus and overcome our egg burnout, I’ll be putting all those long sleeve band shirts to good use, because let’s be honest, who actually wears those anyway?
