July 24th, 2008, 09:25 PM
brilliant. will most definitely try it.
and now I have a reason to wake up tomorrow. thanks Blue.

July 24th, 2008, 09:26 PM
I'm just waiting for them to cool down a bit ..... can't wait!

Bloo Eh?
July 24th, 2008, 09:27 PM
Tawny! Did you put them in cold water to cool down?

July 24th, 2008, 09:47 PM
OK - progress report. I cooked 4 - I blew and two of them spurted out of their shell as per video - BRILLIANT!!!! - the other two I sort of squashed while blowing and crushed their shells. It's a keeper for sure. Loads of fun.

My first one was perfect and certainly opened up the excitement channels in my small brain, the next went well too and, like you, I over blew on my 3rd and 4th and kind of splattered out those ones but got back into gear with the rest with no hitches.

I am so bloody grateful I have chooks but I wish they would lay quicker now to keep up with my new fetish.

Remind me to never eat egg salad at any of your houses. Yuck.

WW - suddenly there are just not enough eggs in the world.

Lushi - If you were to try this home, bear in mind an ostrich egg may be more appropriate for you.

I get it! cuz her mouth is so huge! ha ha ha good one !!

July 24th, 2008, 10:45 PM
It's a good thing those eggs were boiled, they come out the chicken bout the same way you get em out of the shell.!

July 24th, 2008, 11:03 PM
You would consider yourself blessed if I ate egg salad at your house.

You are right Lusho, it would be a wonderful thing to have you dine at our fine Aussie homes and watch you eat egg salad.

Especially since we will have licked all the eggs before serving up....

July 24th, 2008, 11:32 PM
Not funny. In the least.

I just wanted to highlight this. I don't know why. Am I picturing a royal world tour? Where the queen of MWO travels to lands near and far, spanning the globe and sampling the egg salad of various MMO subscribers? Would she have a giant egg timer crown above her blaze of Bozo hair?

July 24th, 2008, 11:35 PM
No. It's not funny - you're quite right, Lushy.

If Lushy was having egg salad at my place, I'd lick them first and then stick the pointy ends in my ears for a while.

I would lick them, stick them in my ears for a while and then massage my armpits and feet with them ......

July 24th, 2008, 11:46 PM
and couldn't you kind of "snuggle" them in your ass crack for a while too? just trying to be helpful.......I don't cook myself.....

July 24th, 2008, 11:55 PM
Still not laughing.

July 25th, 2008, 01:50 AM
No ways, that's going to take my egg mayo saamies to a new level!!

You guy's 'crack' me up!!!

Hippie (a good egg!)

I tried it but got so excited couldn't wait..... i friggin burned my lips didnt I egg every where shit. Now i look like i just pumped six vials of botox into my lips Mick Jagger eat your heart out

July 27th, 2008, 10:18 AM
Dammit - just saw this and I'm all out of eggs!! I can't wait to try it!!
Oh, and Lushy, when we go to that concert, I'm bringing egg salad and you're gonna love it.

July 27th, 2008, 10:46 AM
Okay I tried doing this yesterday and broke a blood vessel in my eye from blowing so hard and it did not work. And don't listen to this guy. You don't boil eggs for 12 minutes!!!! You bring your eggs to a soft boil, turn off the heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Then put in cold water.

I will send you my doctor's bill for the eye Bluey.

July 27th, 2008, 12:36 PM
God, I think I need a life! Hubby very skeptical, but it worked like a charm, hubby needs a life too! Spinach salad with boiled eggs, bacon pieces and dried cranberries.

Lushy, I made a hole the size of a dime in the pointy end and about the size of a quarter on the fatter end and hold the egg gently versus a death grasp.


July 27th, 2008, 12:37 PM
PS Lushy - are you putting in the baking soda?

July 27th, 2008, 02:02 PM
No I realized I did not use the baking soda because this egg was already hard boiled. Okay, okay I will try it again.

July 27th, 2008, 03:25 PM
This sounds hilarious.
I'm taking eggs to the party I'm going to next weekend

July 27th, 2008, 10:07 PM
How do you make egg salad ??

Bloo Eh?
July 27th, 2008, 10:26 PM
Louchey, I cannot believe that you tried it with a previously boiled egg! That is priceless.

July 28th, 2008, 12:13 AM
FU Bluey. I am still sending you the doctor's bill.

Mona, please tell me you are not serious? Deviled eggs? Egg salad? Same thing. Served on good bread with lettuce. It is delish.

July 28th, 2008, 02:51 PM
okay because of this genius thread I'm going to try blowing some eggs. but first a question. My eggs expired 2 days ago. I'm not a stickler for details - but am I going to die?

an aside: I love to eat deviled eggs. Anyone's will do. But I do not eat OPES (other people's egg salad). I can't explain why, but it has always scared me (even before I heard of Le Frog et Bleu's 's special recipe for Louchey). I think something bad having to do with OPES happened to me when I was a kid.


July 28th, 2008, 03:45 PM
The eggs are fine. Don't forget the baking soda.

July 28th, 2008, 03:54 PM
Yup, the eggs should have another week in them as long as they've been refrigerated well.

As far as the baking soda trick goes - I wonder if that adds a measurable amount of sodium to the egg. I'm watching my sodium.

A newbie caring about my eye? You are my new BFF Wally! Welcome!:welcome:

July 28th, 2008, 05:41 PM
okay then! here I go. but first I have to watch the gd video again. I wasn't really paying attention the first time.

July 28th, 2008, 06:37 PM
report: I guess it kind of worked. It was hard to blow and there would be pieces of shell still stuck to the egg though. HOWEVER, I ended up peeling alot of them and it was shockingly easy compared to usual. Was it the baking soda?
Anyway, I still feel more educated than before :)

July 29th, 2008, 07:26 AM
Lushy did you really blow an eye fuse!!!!!!!!! who started this idea I just burnt my friggin lips........ this trick aint on the level!!!
