If an egg cracks while boiling it is it still safe to eat?

Recommended Posts

I'm not talking just a hairline crack. I mean a true crack where you can see the white inside. The contents of the egg stayed in so it obviously happened part way through the boiling process. When this has happened I have always thrown the egg away but now I'm wondering if this is necessary in the world of "egg safety."

I think that would almost become a poached egg. The key is that the egg cooks -- whether it's in the shell, like a boiled egg, or out of the shell, as in a scrambled egg, is not the central issue.

I eat them ... and this happens to me a lot, because somehow I always crack one.

I hope so, because we eat them like that all the time. I would think as long as it's cooked, it's okay.
