    Of course you can eat them next day! Peel them and make egg salad sandwiches
    I totally agree - with both statements.

    And btw, you can not really use any of these timings, apart the ones where you time it from when the eggs actually boil, it depends on how many you're boiling - that's why I said one - two eggs in my post.

    Sounds like I may be just one teensy step ahead of you in the kitchen department, Sara.

    I was thinking the same thing, Barbara. But I have to wait until tonight to peel them to see how they turned out. Will let you know.

    I actually made them because I found a yummy chicken salad sandwich recipe. I never thought of putting eggs in my chicken salad, but it makes it nice and creamy like - yummy!

    Marmite is Marmite and everyone in the UK loves it. And Vegemite is Vegemite and everyone in NZ loves it. And no it isn't like marmalade

    This is one of the funniest threads in a long time. I don't know what to think of the fact that two of my closest worldwide freinds are in the same small group of egg-exploders

    Does a potato exploder count? In my brand new oven, a few years ago, I put in baking potatoes and for some horrible reason I forgot to poke them. Next thing I heard were EXPLODING POTATOES in my new oven

    Nightmare! Exploding potatoes??? Oooo, I've never done that! At least the oven must have confined the spray! Much as I hate cleaning the oven, it is probably marginally better than scrubbing the ceiling ... and the walls ... and the windows ... and the doors ...

  7. Okay....truth time....I've done the exploding eggs TWICE! The first time I put them on to boil and went to take a shower. On the way to the shower I spied a book I was reading. Sat down to read a bit. Finally went to shower. Wondered about the firecrackers I was hearing....but it was 4th of July weekend so..... Got out of the shower. Read a bit more. Was thirsty. Went to the kitchen for a glass of water.....smoke and egg bits everywhere.

    The second time the mess was not so bad.....but the smell was. Since then I do not leave the kitchen area while boiling eggs....

    Exploding eggs aren't the worst kitchen disaster. One package of Pop tarts, a US Army Major who shall remain nameless to protect the foolish, and the Fort Drum Fire Department.

    Said Major wanted pop tarts after his run. He put the pop tarts into the oven, set the oven on BROIL and went for his run. The Major came back to his barracks to find the FT Drum FD in front of the building with smoke pouring out of the kitchen. It's amazing how much smoke those pop tarts can produce!

    We also had someone do something equally stupid with spaghetti, so we weren't letting either one of them near the BBQ grill.

    Perfect! If anything, they were actually a little undone. The center of the yolk was not quite as opaque as the rest of the yolk, but I would consider all of your advice excellent since they turned out so well. Oh, and no gray/green at all! I was surprised but since the center wasn't quite completely done, I guess they weren't overcooked at all. Don't know how that could be after 12 minutes.....

    I've racked my brains and for the life of me, I can't ever remember exploding anything - what a boring life I've lived.

    OMD....I've had such fun reading through this thread.....who would have thunk that a question about boiling eggs could generate so much response and so much laughter at the same time. Exploding eggs..... Sorry to laugh as I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time.....it's the visual.

    And then there was the time that I was boiling eggs and the eggs didn't explode, but pretty much everything else did.

    Somehow the electric stove melted a hole through the bottom of the pan. There was a loud POP, the water drained out, and a fuse blew. Quite the adventure!

    How on earth did you manage that one? Were you boiling your eggs in particularly corrosive acid?
