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.

What fun!

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.

We keep whipping up the fun.  Click here for the next hilarious episode on our Wacky Cooking Techniques Tour.
