pre-scored eggs

Slightly scored eggs

To help cracking them perfectly into a pan, or splitting them for separation, it would be far easier if they were pre-scored to split exactly half way.

       Sorely tempted to fishbone this as the author can't even spell 'eggs' correctly.   

       And you forgot the part about the dotted line....   

       <ObligatoryMisunderstanding> Scored on what scale? </ObligatoryMisunderstanding>

       is this something to do with cricket?

       Maybe rename it 'perforated eggs'? The ultimate would be the 'pull tab' egg.

       Bug*er, sorter it now, sorry. Scored, as in pre-marked for folding or you could have a 'cut here ' line, but that would'nt work in the same way as a 'score'. A score is an indentation along a line to help folding (in paper anyway) but if a line were to be etched into the egg it would ensure a clean break.

       Great idea point dexter .

       Using natural eggs, you should be able to crack 2 eggs simultaneously using one egg per hand - without spilling a drop or bit of shell a_n_d cup the halves. Sissies.

       And only weedy, weaklings take them out of their shells in the first place.
DrBob, Apr 09 2002

       Thumbwax - you want to try that with the eggs my gran's chickens lay. She does the old trick of feeding the hens their own crushed egg shells in their meal, so as to harden eggs produced in future. She's been doing this for some time, and feeds them *all* the egg shells she gets, including extra ones from the supermarket. Result: you need a centre punch to crack them. No joke.

       But what about when I want a boiled egg and toast soldiers for my breakfast? An egg scored half way down would be no use here. Eggs pre-scored just below the pointy end would be needed. Anything that spares the world (or at least me) from the irksome task of trying to take the top off a boiled egg deserves a croissant.

       Definition request: "toast soldiers"
waugsqueke, Apr 10 2002

       Slice of buttered toast, cut into finger-shaped pieces. Ideal for dipping into soft-boiled eggs. (British thing, obviously; I've never known why they're called 'soldiers' - I always call them 'fingers'.)

       See link for frighteningly unnecessary recipe for toast soldiers. I did a google search - seems they are so-called in loads of countries - Australia, Ireland, the US. Shucks, we're so cosmopolitan.
salachair, Apr 10 2002

       Thanks for the 'splain. "Soldier" is an interesting choice of metaphor for a strip of buttered toast.
waugsqueke, Apr 10 2002

       [waugs] It's because they are all lined up, ready to go into battle with the egg and they look identical. Like soldiers.

       The RAF have scrambled egg braiding on their uniform - bloody messy eaters if you ask me.

       another fine idea from the Northern Stars
