Cooking Tips for Eggs

With the possibility that some eggs may contain Salmonella bacteria, they should be cooked thoroughly. * Cook eggs until the yolk and whites are firm. Eggs and dishes made with eggs should reach 160° F. * Quiches and egg-based casseroles - bake until a knife comes out clean. * Sauces or custards - cook until the mixture coats a metal spoon. Cook at 250° F (medium-high heat): * Sunnyside eggs - 7 minutes; or covered 4 minutes. * Fried eggs - cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side. * Scrambled eggs - cook until firm throughout. Cook in boiling water: * Poached eggs - 5 minutes. * Hard cooked eggs - 7 minutes Source: FMI
