I really feel horrible for not posting this earlier. I've been so tired at the end of the day, that I've completely slacked off.
Anyway, here's how to empty the contents out of an egg, whilst leaving the shell intact.
You will need
- clean eggs (DO NOT SCRUB YOUR EGGS -- THIS WILL RESULT IN A MISERABLE EGG-DYEING EXPERIENCE. TRUST ME ON THIS ON. RINSE YOUR EGGS IN WATER IF YOU MUST, AND PAT DRY WITH A PAPER TOWEL, BUT DO NOT SCRUB.)
- a pushpin, or an exacto knife
- a bamboo skewer, or a darning needle, or a really, really skinny knitting needle
- a bowl of some kind
- the desire to eat an omelet
Jab your long and skinny (and clean) implement inside your egg. You are trying to break up the yolk without breaking the actual eggshell. Jab, jab. Poke, poke.
Seal your mouth over one of the two holes, lean over a bowl and blow. Really, really blow.
Blow until you think that your nose is going to explode, and your sinuses are going to come bursting out of your nostrils.
About this time, the egg will start oozing out of the hole in the shell. If this sort of thing grosses you out, you are going to be grossed out. Keep going until all of the gloppy eggy-ness has been blown into your bowl.
Rinse your egg out under the sink, blow out any excess moisture. Prop up your egg up, so that it can drain out onto paper towels.
DO NOT SCRUB YOUR EGGS. REALLY. DO NOT SCRUB. SCRUBBING IS BAD.
Repeat three or four times.
Reward yourself with a delicious omelet.
