What You Need
Just one hand!
1. Hold the egg across your fingers, ends pointing outward, not towards your fingertips.
2. Swiftly rap the egg on the countertop, just enough to crack the shell through, but not hard enough to crush the egg.
3. Over a bowl, use your thumb to pull half of the shell away. Think of the egg as if it had a hinge in the center. Pull half the shell away on that hinge, and let the yolk and white drop out into the bowl.
• Confidence and speed are the most important parts of this little technique. Also, practice makes perfect; try doing this each time you crack an egg for a recipe, and see how quickly you'll master it.
