Beat to the Beat
I learned this technique to scramble eggs while on a camp-out. We were cold and wanted a warm breakfast. I don’t know how our leader carried those eggs without breaking them! She proceeded to fill up a jar with raw eggs and danced around the campfire shaking those jars.
Yes, years later, I still remember the sight…and decided to reproduce it in our home.
Crack eggs or pour (pre-measured) liquids directly into a jar. Firmly close the lid (and keep cover in place with your hand for accident-prevention). Shake your booty and shake that jar.
For best results, blast KC & the Sunshine Band’s tune “Shake your booty” to fully get into the cooking rhythm.
Best Recipes for this cooking technique:
Scrambling eggs for savory dishes: omelettes, quiches, beating eggs for meatloaf, burgers, or steak tartare (!)
Beating eggs for sweet specialities: making crepes, cakes, or cookies…
Mixing liquids like making salad dressing.
