Health Tip: Cook Eggs the Right Way

Health Tip: Cook Eggs the Right Way

03/04/13

(HealthDay News) -- Cooking eggs properly can help reduce the risk of a food-borne illness, so it's important to make sure eggs are always thoroughly cooked.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics lists these tips to help make sure eggs are properly cooked:

  • Cook eggs of any style (scrambled, boiled or fried) until yolks are firm instead of runny.
  • Make sure egg-based dishes, such as casseroles or quiches, are cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees or higher by using a food thermometer.
  • Never taste or eat raw eggs alone or in uncooked foods such as cookie dough or cake batter.
  • Skip the raw eggs called for in recipes like Caesar dressing and instead substitute with a pasteurized liquid egg or egg substitute.
