Health Tip: Cook Eggs the Right Way
(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.
