When frying eggs, crack them one at a time into a cup or small bowl — not directly into the pan. If the yolk breaks, you can save that egg for another dish. We pre-crack eggs for cookies and cakes, too, so we can pick out any bits of shell before they end up in the batter.

    This one cracks me up.

    My Mother makes me do it. Her Mother made her do it and I think My Great-grandmother did it too.

    Ina Garten always advises cooks to break eggs into a separate bowl from batters and/or egg dishes. She says, "You never know when you might get a "bad" egg!" It's good advice that every cook should heed. Thanks, Ina.
