Eggs are packed with protein, making them a filling and healthy option at breakfast or any other time of the day. However, because bacteria can lurk underneath the egg shell’s surface, they can also pose a threat.
The key, of course, is to ensure you’re not eating eggs that have expired (most egg packages come with clear expiry dates) and to cook your eggs properly. Cooking eggs—whether poaching, frying, hard-boiling, or baking—eliminates the bacteria. Unfortunately, that means it’s best to avoid eating foods, however delicious, which contain raw egg, like cookie dough.
