If you are anything like us, you love eggs, in all of their forms. Whether they are scrambled, over easy or sunny side up, we cannot get enough.

We also tend to get very anxious when we watch the more experienced chefs of the world trying to crack an egg. They seem to have it down pat but we always struggle when it comes time to emulate their strategies.

No one likes to pick eggshells out of their scrambled eggs or their cake batter. That’s why we are here to present you with this game-changing hack.

We are tired of struggling when these chefs make the process look so simple. Some can even do it one-handed, which only serves to add to our level of current frustration. It’s just not fair!

We want to be able to crack an egg and have it fall neatly into the pan in the manner that we planned. While some will attempt the one-handed crack, others opt to use the edge of the table to crack an egg.

These surfaces may seem useful, but in reality, the eggshell is just going to end up splintering. The side of the bowl or the pan is also going to present similar issues.

The hack that we have to offer is far more interesting. It actually starts by dropping the egg directly into the pan! It seems counterintuitive, but people on TikTok are swearing by it.
