Ah, eggs. They're really cracking, aren't they? Here's a video showing you how to cook them in 12 different ways

Sometimes it's all too easy to forget the virtues of the humble egg.


Although we shouldn't.


Eggs are versatile, easy to cook and one of the main ingredients in many of our favourite tasty treats: pancakes, pavlovas, marshmallows, Scotch eggs, spaghetti carbonara, and so on. Not to mention all the different mealtimes we can eat them at: breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.


But at last, proper homage to the egg has been paid in the form of a video circulating around YouTube made by Food, People, Places.


12 Things You Can Do With An Egg, with its dubstep soundtrack from Pixelord, spotlights the egg in all its glory from basic boiling and frying to more complicated creations like graved eggs, Spanish tortilla, crème brûlée and even a whiskey sour.


Proof that sometimes, it's OK to put all your eggs in one basket. If it's a shopping basket, that is.
