Are you ready to learn? If you are going to hone in those baking skills, egg cracking is not just important, it is super fun! Even if you're only 3-years-old, you're ready to crack a whole carton of eggs into a bowl. Let's get started!
Start with Lots of Supplies
Are you cracking eggs for the first time, or are you a seasoned egg-cracker? Either way, cracking open a whole carton of eggs is the best way to become a pro. Let's practice:
For bowls, something sturdy with enough weight to it is always best, so hop to the cupboard and find the best bowl you can!
Let's Get Cracking
Now, hold your egg with both hands long ways so that there is some empty space in between your fingers. Get a good grip before making your first crack, eggs can be slippery!
Time to crack!
Tada! Don't worry if the yolk breaks the first few times or if you make a mess, that's what practice is for! Keep at it until you can confidently crack an egg right into your bowl.
