Cooking Hacks for Your Subsequent Time within the Kitchen

Whether you like to cook or not, we all have to eat. Use these cooking hacks to make great food in the kitchen.

Eggs in the microwave

If you’ve never microwaved eggs before, you really should do this. They cook quickly and are the fluffiest eggs you will ever have. Put two eggs in a bowl and stir with a fork. Add a small splash or about 1 tablespoon of milk of your choice and mix in as well. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook for 30 seconds, mixing in between until done or for about 1½ minutes. This is one of the best cooking hacks.

Roll your citrus fruits

If you roll your lemons and limes before you squeeze them, they will produce more juice. If they’re old or tough, you can even toss them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. So just roll (or zap), cut and press.

Use frozen berries instead of syrup

How does it work, you ask? When you warm up frozen berries, they turn into a kind of drizzle sauce. Do you want it smoother? Strain the berries through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the seeds and distribute the meals from the waffles to the ice cream.

Bubbly pancakes are key

Once you scoop pancake batter onto your pan, you’ll know when they’re ready to flip as soon as they start smoking. Okay, just kidding. In fact, the pancake batter will start bubbling as soon as it’s ready to be turned over. The most important part is waiting until every single pancake is covered in bubbles and then it’s ready to flip it over. What a great cooking hack.

Hamburgers need a hole

Or at least some kind of notch. Have you ever noticed burgers shrink in both width and height, whether in a pan or on the grill? There is a way to prevent this from happening and all you have to do is poke it. That’s right, just put your burger on the grill or pan, stick it in the center of the patty (not all the way through, but at least enough to make a mark), and then cook and turn it as you normally would.

Cook bacon in the oven

Many people are familiar with and use this hack regularly, including my family. The bacon cooked in the oven is cooked evenly and as crispy or flaccid as you like. (Because I know some of you love floppy bacon.) Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and use strips of bacon to cover the baking sheet. Cook in the oven at 350 ° C for about 20 minutes and then remove from the hot sheet pan. This is going to be one of your favorite cooking hacks if it hasn’t already been.

Do you want softer cookies?

All you need is bread and just a slice of it. Once your cookies are baked and cooled, put them in your cookie jar or anywhere you’d like to keep your cookies. Add a slice of bread and place the lid over it. Your cookies will stay moist and soft much longer than they keep from eating them.

Apple Cut your steak fries

What? When making french fries out of potatoes, all you need is an apple core and the rest is easy! Similar to an apple, cut off the top and bottom of the potato, then use the corer to slice it lengthways. From there, drop those babies into a deep fryer, sheet pan, or even air fryer and boom in homemade steak fries ready to gobble up.

Soften your butter without heat

Right, you can soften your butter even if you forgot to take it out sooner and you don’t have to use the microwave either. So if you need softened butter for anything, do so. Take a piece of butter and cut it into plates or cubes. Let it sit on the counter for about 20 minutes or until tender. (The smaller you cut the pieces, the sooner you’ll have softened butter.)

Omelets in a bag

This hack is as simple as it is tasty and has to be tried. Break a few eggs into a gallon sized Ziploc bag and stir them through. Add whatever you’d like to your omelette, including salt and pepper, cheese, onions, mushrooms, peppers, green onions, or even cooked bacon or sausage. Seal the lid and mix the combination before placing the bag in a saucepan of boiling water for about 8 minutes. The result will be a tightly formed, delicious, and fluffy omelette. This is a great cooking hack for any family.

The bacon cook hack is almost as great as the burger hack. Which cooking hack is your favorite?
