Step 1: Hold egg
Wash your hands and hold the egg in your favored hand between your middle finger and thumb, resting your first finger along the egg's side.
Step 2: Rap the egg
With one swift, decisive motion, rap the egg on a flat surface or the edge of the bowl or skillet to make a clean horizontal crack in the side of the egg.
Tapping softly several times causes the eggshell to break into smaller pieces, which means shell might end up in your meal.
Step 3: Separate egg
Use both of your thumbs to separate the shell on either side of the crack by pulling up and away at the crack.
Step 4: Drop egg into bowl
Let the contents of the egg fall into the bowl.
Step 5: Look for pieces of shell
Remove pieces of shell from the egg if necessary.
