If you’ve ever hardboiled eggs then tucked some back into the refrigerator’s egg tray to use later, you might be familiar with this dilemma: how do you know if an egg is raw or cooked? Before you tap, tap, tap on a shell and end up with a gooey mess all over your countertop, try this easy test to find out if an egg is ready to be peeled.
The Egg Test
Place the egg on a hard surface.
Give it a good spin.
While the egg is spinning, grab it ever so briefly and immediately let go.
Did it keep spinning? If so, the egg is raw.
If it stopped, you’ve got a boiled egg.
Now get cracking with one of these easy recipes made with hardboiled eggs!
