Will This Egg Really Fry?
It’s August in Arizona, and the weather is VERY hot right now. With the recent temperatures reaching above 115 degrees, I thought it would be fun to do a little experiment!
We’ve all heard the saying “it’s hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk”. Since I didn’t want to clean up an egg mess from the sidewalk, I decided to use a common household pan.
I cracked the egg into the pan and let it sit for a while. The temperature was 117 degrees that day, but I wasn’t really sure if it would really cook an egg. I went back into the air conditioning and waited about half an hour to check on it.
When I checked on the “eggsperiment”, I was surprised to see the eggs were OVERCOOKED! Heck, even my dog wouldn’t eat it!
The myth you can fry an egg in the Arizona heat is definitely true! It’s so hot here, the only way to cope is to laugh about it.
This de-motivational picture gave me a great idea for the next experiment!
