Eggs are considered as one of the most versatile foods out there. They can be eaten by themselves or as part of an omelet or another dish. They’re easy to prepare and healthy for you, to boot. Here are some of the best egg hacks that will change your life.
Runny Poached Eggs
For poached eggs with a runny inside, put a half cup of water into a microwave-safe bowl, cracking an egg inside. Cover and heat for 60 seconds.
How to Poach Better
Poach your eggs simply by putting your egg in a poaching bag and simmering. Voila! Poached eggs did the easy way.
A Perfect Circle
Want an egg that will fit just right on your sandwich? Fry one inside of a large onion slice!
No Time to Peel
Peeling hard-boiled eggs can take a while. Save time by cutting through the middle of the egg with a knife, allowing you to take the shell off in a couple of seconds.
Hard Boiling Done Right
Hard-boiling eggs is great unless you want to do a bunch at once. Put a dozen or more in a muffin tin and hard-boil them in the oven instead!
Nice and Creamy
Using a muffin tin in the oven will not only make your job faster and easier but leave you with a creamier egg, too!
Instead of traditional hard-boiling, wrap your egg in a towel or t-shirt and whip it around for a minute or two. The inside will be one golden color.
Finish Your Golden Egg
When you’re done whipping your egg around, simply boil it as usual. You’ll end up with a scrambled boiled egg!
Waffle Your Omelette
You’ve got your mixture all made up, but don’t want to use a frying pan? Make your omelet in a waffle maker for one of the best egg hacks around!
Keep ‘Em Separated
Tired of separating egg whites the hard way? Crack them and suck the yolks into a water bottle to separate the yolk quickly and easily!
Simple Ramekin Breakfast
If you have a ramekin, you’re just an egg and a microwave away from a simple baked egg breakfast.
To microwave your egg in a ramekin, just put it in and set it for sixty seconds. Egg hacks don’t come much easier!
Home Egg Muffins
Want your favorite egg muffin sandwich but don’t want to pay restaurant prices? If you’ve got a muffin tin, we’ve got you covered.
Make Your Muffins
Put your muffins in the toaster and put as many eggs as you need in a muffin tin, then bake them.
Egg Baking Tips
To bake your eggs, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place the eggs in for 10 to 15 minutes. A visual check works nicely to see if they’re done to your liking.
One Key Step to Remember
If you don’t use a little butter or some non-stick spray in your muffin tin before baking, you won’t be able to get your eggs out easily!
Complete the Muffin
Don’t forget to add some cheese, and perhaps a sausage patty, to make your home muffins even better!
Make Many Omelettes
Want to prepare omelettes for a lot of people? Just get some zip bags and your ingredients and we’ll get started.
Steam Bags Needed
Like with all egg hacks, it’s all in the details. Make sure your zipper bags are made to be steamed or heated up, or it won’t work.
Set Up the Omelettes
Now, you’ll need to put crack two eggs in each bag. Make sure no shells get in!
Customize the Ingredients
The best part comes now. Everyone gets to pick their ingredients! Put a spoonful or two of each desired ingredient in the bag.
Boil Your Water
Boil a pot of water (larger pot for more omelettes) while you squish the bags together (after zipping them, of course!
Ready to Eat
Finally, put the bags in the boiling water with a lid on it. For two-egg omelets, 13 minutes is a good time. For more eggs, add an extra couple of minutes for each.
Simple and Delicious
Take the bags out when they’re done and slide each onto a plate. Easy breakfast for a group of people!
Healthy Egg Cups
Some of the best egg hacks use muffin tins. For this one, put your eggs in your muffin tin and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Customize Your Egg Cups
The best part is when you customize your egg cups. Add a little salt, pepper, spinach, or any other items, cooking if needed.
Whisk and Bake
Whisk your eggs with the ingredients you want, pour into a greased muffin pan and bake for about 15 minutes. Tasty!
Breakfast All Week Long
Since your muffin pan probably has 12 cups, you can save your extras, which can be refrigerated for four days for an easy breakfast!
Egg Hacks for Hair
Did you know that egg yolks are actually a really great hair conditioner?

Shine Up Your Shoes
Egg whites can be scrubbed onto any color of leather and wiped off with a damp cloth to remove stains!
Fast Sunny Side Up Eggs
Egg hacks can be useful when you’re in a time crunch. For fast sunny side up eggs, heat up a plate in the microwave for two minutes, coat with a little butter, and crack an egg onto it. Gently poke the yolk in the center and put the plate back in for 45 seconds.
Delicious Scrambled Eggs
Heat up a pan over high heat with a tablespoon of butter and then add three eggs whisked with a quarter cup of milk. When curds form, switch to low heat and continue flipping until no liquid remains. Take the pan off the heat for one minute and then serve.
Are Your Eggs Good?
Fill a bowl with water and drop the eggs in gently. If they lay on their side, they’re very fresh!
Try a Poaching Bag
Poaching bags are not only affordable, but they’re disposable and quite easy to use, also.
