Is anyone else a little freaked out by the consumption of raw eggs? 🥚 I couldn't have been the only person cringing while watching Rocky Balboa down his pre-workout raw egg concoction in the infamous movie. 🤢🥊 (I just dated myself, didn't I? 🤣) I'm not here to debate the safety of consuming raw eggs but you better believe that I won't be making myself a raw egg milkshake before my workout anytime soon.
I don't want to give eggs a bad rap. They aren't the only things that I prefer cooked instead of raw. I like cooked fish - and not just the kind cooked with lime juice. 🍣 I prefer grilled or roasted tomatoes to fresh. 🍅 And vegetables like spinach, garlic and onions are far better sautéed than they are fresh, in my opinion.
Most of us have probably never whipped up a raw egg milkshake for ourselves but we've actually consumed raw eggs in a much sneakier - and more delicious form - tiramisu. It's true. The most authentic tiramisu is made with raw eggs.
Again - not here to debate whether or not it's safe to consume raw eggs - but just the thought of it kind of wierds me out. Soooo... instead of skipping out on this delicious treat - I figured out how to cook my eggs before adding them to my tiramisu. It's easier than you might think and it's just as scrumptious as it's raw egg counterpart.
