I will crack an egg into a bowl and

wound up with bits of shell in the mix

when you tap an egg on the edge of a

bowl you don't just break the shell the

thin membrane surrounding the white and

the yolk also ruptures allowing the

shell shards to mix with a liquid and

ends up in your finished dish to cleanly

crack an egg hold the egg in one hand

and tap it firmly on a hard flat surface

like a counter check the break you

should see an indentation and one side

to side crack place your thumbs on

either side of the crack and gently pull

the shell apart any showers will stick

to the membrane and not fall in the bowl
