Eggs are a breakfast staple for a good reason: they’re high in protein, and inexpensive. But if you’re sick of eating eggs the same way every morning, give these hacks a try.

1. Make a waffle omelet

Crack a few eggs in a bowl and whisk them together with some of your favorite mix-ins. Add the egg mixture to a greased waffle iron and cook for two minutes or until the eggs are set. Top with leftover mix-ins and enjoy.

2. Remove eggshells on boiled eggs easier

Place 2–3 boiled eggs in a Mason jar with a little bit of water. Attach the lid and gently shake for 10–20 seconds. Your hard-boiled eggs will come out with the shells off, looking flawless.

3. Make perfectly poached eggs in a simmering whirlpool

Poached eggs are probably the most challenging egg-cooking method to nail, but this hack makes it easy. First, boil the egg for 10 seconds. Then, immediately crack the egg into a small bowl. Add vinegar to simmering water and stir to create a whirlpool effect. Toss egg into the water and cook for 1–2 minutes. Remove poached egg from the water with a wide slotted spoon.
