When I was in the service I learned to use one hand in less than a days time, a little practice is all it takes.

You just have to break a few eggs, huh? I find the eggshells now days to be very crumbly.

They film the egg cracking  4 or 5 times.  I don't have any trouble cracking an egg with one hand, ti's opening it up and putting it in the bowl that takes me 2 hands. :rolling:    One thing I have learned is not to crack it on the side of the bowl, just straight down onto a flat surface such as the counter top. I get less shell in the bowl that way.

I can do it after a little practice, but man, those fresh brown eggs have a super thick inner membrane. The shell isn't the problem with my eggs :smilewink:

we use farm fresh eggs. also try not to take to long the longer ya take cracking and putting the egg in the bowl the more chance of pieces in the bowl. and dont hit it on the bowl or counter 5 times just one good crack works for me

I have two words to describe my past experience with cracking eggs:

 

Hand grenades.

When I was stationed in Hakata Japan there was one Air Force cook who could crack two eggs at a time in one hand. I have never seen it done again. He would do it when making omelets. If anyone else was there and saw this I would like to hear from them so I know I didn't dream this up. Would have been in the early seventies.

Easy peasy LD, just be prepared to make a mess before 'ya got it figured out.  

 

Egg-  lightly  held by thumb and pinkie, egg lightly tucked into the meat of the palm of yer hand.

 

Smack the egg on the edge of the side of the pan- CRACK!

 

Swiftly move the hand over the pan, and spread the thumb and pinky, releasing the yummy egg, whilst lightly holding the eggshell amidst the palm.

 

Toss the eggshell into the trash ( or nearby bowl- usually easier)

 

Fry the egg.

 

Enjoy!
