    I just tried this

    My elderly neighbour is always saying drop over for a coffee, so I did. Caught her making muffins. She puts all the liquids including eggs into a quart sized jar , gives a few good shakes mixing every thing before adding to her dry ingredients. So I had to try it, works real well for those times you can't use a mixer. Another I should thought of that moment. grin.

    I think it would be a great procedure to do with kids

    Fantastic idea! I usually just whisk it with a fork, until my arm nearly falls off.

    Good idea - must try it. I also use something to make egg salad that most people wouldn't think of. I use my pastry blender(the semi rounded thing that you hold on top with rounded flat blades that chop your butter etc into the sugar or flour mixture) make sure the blades are not the wire ones as that is maybe not strong enough to chop the eggs.
    For me, this works like a charm. In Canada, we call it a pastry blender but may be called something else in the States. You chop down on your items until they are the consistency you want. Makes perfect egg mixture for egg salad.

    It's a pastry blender in the states and both ideas are great!

    Great idea! I use an egg slicer for my eggs. Put your egg in, hold over a bowl and slice. Add your favorite ingredients and stir.

    Since you can pour your batter into the pan, it would cut down on the mess I sometimes make. OK the mess I usually make. LOL

    Your neighbor has a great idea. I slice my boiled eggs with the egg slicer, then chop them up with the pastry blender. Then put in the remaining ingredients.
