Next time you buy a carton of eggs, try a different way to cook them.
To cook hard-boiled eggs, place eggs in a pot with water (the water should cover the eggs). Bring to a boil and cover the
pot. Turn off stove, remove the pot from the stove and let it sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove the eggs and place them
in a bowl of cold water, then crack and peel the shells.
You can cook soft-boiled eggs the same way as hard-boiled eggs, but steep in hot water for less time. To eat, use a knife
to take the cap off of the egg (you can eat it straight from the shell).

Make hard-boiled eggs, remove their yolks and replace with a creamy filling.
Crack eggs in a mixing bowl and scramble together with a fork. Add milk and continue whisking. Pour into a pan with butter
and cook for a minute. Use a spatula to push the eggs into the center of the pan.
Carefully crack eggs into a frying pan one at a time. Cook until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes.
