Raw Eggs in my Coffee – UPDATE

Posted in Recipes/Food with tags , , , , , on July 29, 2013 by Dena

Just wanted to report a mistake I made the second time I tried Primal Egg Coffee.

As I said in the original post, by the time you beat the egg and coffee mixture with a fork to where it’s about as well mixed as it’s gonna get, it has cooled to the point that it’s barely warm.

So, keeping this in mind the second time I made it, I microwaved it for 30 seconds. Too hot, had to let it sit and cool a bit before really drinking it. But the main problem is that I ended up with a chunk of egg at the bottom. Which I swallowed. Eww–yeah, didn’t need that first thing in the morning.

So this morning, I tried again, and not only did I microwave it for only 15 seconds, I gave it another quick beating with the fork juuust in case there was enough egg left that might end up cooking if left to sit and collect. Was a good temperature for drinking immediately, and no solid egg.

So I think I’ve got my method down. I kind of wish I didn’t have to microwave it–when you microwave a cup of coffee, the cup gets hotter than the coffee does and sometimes the cream separates a little and you end up with a bit of film at the top. But oh well.
