This morning I watched a Facebook video. In this video, a couple of bananas are shaped into an oval shape, filled with egg yolks, and fake oatmeal pancakes are fried in a pan around. There are drops of hot sauce, scud of iodine-added salt poured directly from the spout, and sprinkles that dissolve in the messy squeeze of corn by-products. The whipped cream topping will boil. The oatmeal paste will stick together. As the carnival bark narration states, it’s not really “healthy,” and spray margarine isn’t a “vegetable serving.” Also, instead of “sliding right out of the pot,” you just plunge partly upside down into a plate that hasn’t done anything worthy of indignation.
A similar 20-minute video is a dozen bakery dimes, a type of boring and pedestrian culinary trolling that draws people in enough time to make sure they can’t be used. They have no punch lines or real art. Want to cook comedy? SNL’s “Bass-O-Matic“It’s still amazing after 45 years. If you have a stronger stomach, General Foods in 1962.”Jero’s joy“Cookbook.

That’s why High Me Fielding’s Viral No Peel Hack is a fresh … egg breath.
Fielding is a North Carolina mother with a personal interest in health and wellness, and began sharing recipes, kitchen hacks, and nutrition tips on Instagram and TikTok a few years ago. Her videos focus on the balance of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein, rather than promoting a normal trendy diet. As a registered dietitian, I certainly approve of her overall approach.
Fielding loves egg salad, but he doesn’t like peeling. A few weeks ago, she came up with the idea of baking cracked eggs in a pan to avoid the hassle of preparation. She made a video of her first attempt, and it worked, so she posted it without thinking too much about it.But many others think of it — it has been viewed over 14.5 million times. Ticktaku Thousands more have been posted since the post on April 6th Instagram..
It certainly looks easy. In a less than 40 second video of fielding, she greases the pan, drops seven cracked eggs, and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. trick? Fielding knew they would dry without any intervention, so she put them in a water bath to bake them more evenly and gradually to heat.When they’re done, she just pops out the hard bread on the chopping board and chops them. Egg salad..
So does it work? Easy answer: Yes.
But I have only a few notes.
Here’s my setup: put bread, raw eggs, and a water bath in a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
The bottom of my bread is angled and small, so I used 6 eggs in the hope that it would be similar in thickness. If you’re looking to duplicate a boiled egg, you don’t want to break the yolk, so just drop the yolk everywhere. I didn’t specify the fielding Tik Tok, so I thought the eggs were cold just outside the fridge and used water directly from the tap. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 30 minutes as instructed.
Fielding quickly removes them from the pan in her video, and I think it’s generally a good idea to prevent the dreaded gray yolks that result from the reaction of iron and sulfur with overcooking. is. They came out of the bread without any problems, but to my surprise, one of my main concerns about this hack was that the time saved without peeling was only transferred to scrubs. ..
They are cooked but probably a little underrated for egg salad.
However, even if I used a water bath, I was afraid to cook it anymore because the surface was dry and had almost plastic-like spots, especially around the edges.
They chopped really well, but if you look closely, you can see some crunchy bits.
The ovens are so different that this exact method probably works perfectly well for some people, and some dry spots may not bother everyone. But they bother me, so I did a few proof-of-concept experiments with another egg. Bred to room temperature before breaking into an oiled dish and covered with foil before baking.
It may be an evil eye for us, but due to the combination of added insulation and moisturizing properties, it doesn’t have a hard bit. The reason why the yolks were baked all the time this time may be because they were first warmed outside the refrigerator. It is recommended to use the fielding loaf pan method with 6-7 eggs. First bring the yolks to room temperature to allow them to cook completely and then cover them tightly with foil to create a more uniform texture. Start checking for perfection in about 25 minutes, especially if the eggs are cold, replace the cover and prepare to lengthen it for a few minutes. If the whites are solid but the yolks are not good enough, leave them in the water bath from the oven for a few minutes, but be careful not to leave them for a long time. Do not coat the gray ring of despair.
Fielding said he received many comments suggesting themselves.Anyone can do it “techniqueFrom steaming in a pressure cooker to dropping regular boiled eggs into cold water to make them easier to peel off, but like many of us, she said she had inconsistent results. The shells may stick together or the eggs may be too moist to taste. This is the key to navigating these probably correct ways. In fact, the settings vary. Some people want soft, steamed eggs. Some people can peel it after boiling it. Everything that works for you is the best.
I like this egg salad inspo, but what I like to learn from fielding is the willingness to experiment, even if it fails. She even tried to figure out how to bake a deviled egg, she said she wasn’t successful so far, but I love her tasty taste.
Why don’t you try freshly baked egg salad? Break!
