Although this seems like an oxymoron, these eggs are delicious and definitely worth a try. To make your very own scrambled hard-boiled eggs, you will need a fresh egg, a long sleeve shirt and two pieces of string. Insert the raw egg into the shirt sleeve and tie a piece of string on their side of the egg. Holding on hand on each end of the shirt sleeve, wind the material and pull quickly outwards. This will cause the egg to spin rapidly, scrambling it without cracking the shell. Do this 12-15 times before boiling the egg as you normally would.   

96.  Soft-Boiled Egg with Whole Wheat Dippers

Hard-boiled eggs are readily consumed, but soft-boiled eggs are often neglected. Add raw eggs to a pot of boiling water and cook until the white becomes firm but the yolk remains runny. Remove the eggs from the water and remove the top of the shell and egg white. While the eggs are cooking, toast up a few slices of whole wheat bread. Slice the bread into strips and dip them in the warm egg yolk. This meal is perfect for adults and children alike.

Combine egg whites and vegetables, place in a steamer and cook until tender and fully cooked. This is a simple way to cook and enjoy eggs that isn’t often utilized. Add your favorite vegetables and make this your own creation. These can be made in individual ramekins as well if members of your family enjoy different vegetables. 

98.  Rolled Omelet

This meal is like no omelet you’ve ever eaten before; it doesn’t even look like an omelet. Scramble eggs with your favorite omelet ingredients and bake in the oven on a parchment covered baking sheet until firm. When the edges begin to brown and the center is firm, remove from the oven and sprinkle with a cheese. Starting with one end, roll the egg sheet into a log. This is a quick way to make omelets for the whole family.
