TIP – The most important tip for making this recipe is the same one with all recipes that have eggs in them…never crack an egg over food.  

It’s a good idea to crack each egg in a separate bowl first before adding it in with other ingredients (or in with other eggs). 

This way, if the egg is bad (i.e. smells off or bad, or is discolored), it can be discarded before contaminating the other ingredients.
