How to Make Scrambled Eggs Without Breaking the Shell

We have all had hardboiled eggs.  When you open up a hardboiled egg, you see the yolk and the white are separate just like you expect.

Golden eggs are different because you are combining the yolk and the white part before you crack the egg!  That means that it becomes this creamy yellow color…golden eggs!

Step 5

Get out your phone flashlight and shine it through the shell to see if you have truly scrambled the egg in the shell.  A normal egg will look golden and a golden egg, scrambled egg will look more reddish and cloudy.  Kinda ironic, eh?

Step 6

Hard boil the egg.  The video suggests putting the egg into hard boiling water and turning off the heat leaving for 15 minutes.  I like to use an egg timer.

Step 7

Peel the egg!  You will see a golden egg inside.  Literally a scrambled egg inside the shell.
