Lately, I’ve been in an eggs-for-breakfast kind of mood. They’re filling, fast, affordable (and, to state the obvious, delicious). But despite my morning ritual, I still can’t get the hang of gracefully plucking an egg, tapping it open, and separating yolk from shell in one swoop. I’m a two-handed egg cracker dreaming of single-handed speed.

To learn, I reached out to Egg Shop’s Nick Korbee, a chef who cracks nearly 1,500 eggs on any given Sunday. And I started out with the tough questions: flat or sharp surface?

This 25-Cent, One-Ingredient Sauce Is Just What You Need to Rescue Leftover Pasta

  This 25-Cent, One-Ingredient Sauce Is Just What You Need to Rescue Leftover Pasta You know what’s easier than any fancy concoctions? Frying an egg. These are the five French “mother sauces.” Béchamel boasts a luxurious, creamy texture, and creating it involves an attentive eye, a whisk, and a roux (a flour-butter mixture). Hollandaise can, thank goodness, be made in a blender, but it has a tendency to break.

“If you want to build your speed to egg-cracking speed freak, I suggest finding a sharp surface,” Korbee says. “The mistake most people make is that they slam an egg down to crack it. It doesn’t require that much pressure.”

But a gentle hand and sharp edge are just two components. To master the one-handed crack, hold the egg with the top (the slightly pointier side) in between the first knuckle and crook of your index finger. The base rests where the thumb meets the palm. From there, it’s what Korbee calles “a little thumb and finger workout.”

“You rear your thumb and finger back, pushing your thumb forward while pulling your fingers, and that should pull the shell and egg enough to let gravity do the work,” he says. “As you pull, the weight of the egg will increase the crack you made.”

This Is Why You Should Never, Ever Sleep While a Plane Is Taking Off or Landing

  This Is Why You Should Never, Ever Sleep While a Plane Is Taking Off or Landing You’ve made it. You managed to navigate your way through the world’s largest airport without robot assistance; you breezed through security because you didn’t pack any items that get you flagged by the TSA; and you successfully boarded the plane. Now you’re comfortable in your seat in the (kind of incredibly germ-ridden) cabin, and there’s even a little bit of elbow room, as the flight isn’t fully booked for once. With the hassle behind you, you settle in with your neck pillow, pop some Kenny G on your iPod, and get ready to spend quality time sleeping on a plane.

I was just telling my sons how “some people can even crack an egg with one hand ”–I’ll have to practice this and become one of those people. Superhero power? Maybe not, but it would be cool!

Sunny-side up, poached, scrambled, hard-boiled—Korbee uses this technique for any and every type of egg dish. On those 1,500-egg days, Korbee cracks four at a time (two in each hand) to make scrambled eggs, keeping shells out with a chinois. He recommends home cooks begin with the same method.

“Get out a strainer and go nuts. Start with one. Then go to one in each hand. Build skill. You’re setting yourself up for failure unless you’re making something that needs to be scrambled,” he says with the seriousness of a man who’s survived many a brunch service.

I’m happy to sacrifice (and scramble) a few of my eggs to learn Korbee’s method. Here are some egg-cellent dishes I plant to practice on:
