Separating eggs yolks from the white is a tedious task that often leaves broken yolks. Here’s a ‘very cool way’ to separate the yolk using a simple plastic water bottle that is faster and more precise than traditional tricks.
The trick is actually quite simple. Just secure the egg in a cloth sleeve, spin and twist the egg as hard as you can, and then pull away on both ends of the sleeve a few good times.
The force will cause the yolk to break and mix with the white. Then, simply boil the eggs as per usual hard boiled directions. Upon breaking the shell, a perfectly scrambled hard boiled egg is discovered.
Viewers can’t help but be reminded of the vintage Egg Scrambler. Of course, after scrambling in the shell, the egg was still cracked and cooked in a traditional fashion, so what’s the point?
Already, the new video has accumulated over 400,000 views, and is featured on Fark, DailyPicks, and Gizmodo.
Videos of shocked farmers and cooks cracking an extraordinarily large egg only to discover an entirely intact egg inside, in addition to the usual yolk and egg whites, has been seen by the web before.
Nevertheless, ‘eggception’ videos seem to always go viral in their own right.
The latest person to open an ‘eggception’ egg is Sean Wilson. After he weighs the ginormous egg, he cracks it into a hot pan only for another normal sized egg to fall out along with the first egg’s whites and yolk.
