Bad eggs...

How many bad eggs have you encountered (excluding spouses, of course )? Personally, I've never gotten a bad egg, but I'm still in the habit of cracking them in a seperate bowl rather than into the mixture to be cooked. Anyway, it's easier to get shell fragements out if my cracking isn't good enough..

Not too many, maybe one or two. I do it the way you do Otter, always into a separate bowl. No sense trashing the entire batch of whatever you're making.

I rarely crack eggs into a separate bowl first.

I guess I'm an optimist after all.

I've only had that happen once many years ago, but since that time I crack them into a bowl before adding to the mixture. I do store them in the carton they come in not the things in the door of the fridge. I read that is the best way to keep them at the right temperature, and I really pay attention to the date on the carton, always using the older ones for boiling.

I've never had a bad egg unless you count the boiled one I hid in my room at Easter one year & my mom found it several months later! I always crack them into a seperate bowl first though. Better to be safe than sorry!

Kind of off topic here, but not by far. Years ago at Easter time, my brothers decided it would be fun to color a raw egg brown, hide it, and then laugh at whomever found it and tried to peel it. Little did they know that brown colored eggs are extremely hard to locate. Well, 6 months later our bassett hound found the egg and chomped down on it. Can we say PEEEE-YOU! That thing stunk to high heaven, and Mom gave my brothers the chore of running down the dog to wash/brush his teeth to get rid of the stench. Needless to say they never did that again.

Oh gross. That sounds perfectly vile. But a great story for the kids to tell.

rotten eggs

If you put them in away and leave them alone long enough, the insides dry up and the egg rattles when you shake it.
My mother was into making fancy Easter Eggs, and I think that was a custom in some Eastern European country...can't remember which.
