Danish Delicacy Long Eggs Put A New Spin On An Old Classic

At a certain point in your life, you think you've eaten just about everything you'll ever eat, and the variations keep meals exciting and new. It's the unexpected that you look forward to — but you have to think you've seen it all from certain staples.
Eggs, for example, are a pretty versatile food, but there's only so much you can do with them, right? Fry them, scramble them, boil or poach them, and beyond that, what can you do? Well, here's something you might not have seen before...

If you'd love eggs like these, SHARE this!

If you've ever been presented with perfectly even slices of hard-boiled egg, you must have wondered how they managed to get such consistent slices.

You were probably also in Europe, because they come from a Danish delicacy.

If you're slicing up eggs at home with a slicer, you know that you're going to get all different sizes of slices because of the egg's shape.

As it turns out, those perfectly even slices come from one long boiled egg!

We know the egg didn't come out of the chicken like that.

So how the heck do you end up with these long eggs that slice up so nicely?

As you might have guessed, it starts with a machine and a whole lot of eggs.

The eggs get washed and moved along 

Another machine cracks all the eggs open, one by one.

After they're cracked, the egg yolks and whites get separated.

The yolks go on a journey to be mixed together in a large vat...

While the whites go on a similar journey of their own.

When each of them has been stirred up, the whites are first injected into a mold with a hole in the center.

They'll be boiled up nice and white.

When the whites are sufficiently cooked, the stirred-up yolks are injected into the middle of the cooked egg whites.

It's a majestic sight when these come rolling off the production line...

After they've been cooked up, quality inspectors will trim off any ugly ends so consumers will get a pristine sunny circle inside perfect snowy whites.

Just look at all those long eggs ready for market!

It's even possible to make long eggs at home!

SHARE this if you'd love a plate full of perfect eggs!
