Today I’m sharing what my family does with our decorated hard boiled eggs before we eat them. I’m unsure of the origins of this tradition, but know that it’s something that has been done in my family since my grandma was a little girl.
The basic gist of an egg war is to try and crack each of your competitor’s eggs without yours breaking.
You face off two at a time . . .
Whoever ends up with a non cracked egg faces off with the winner of another division. You continue until there is only one person with a perfect egg – that individual is named “the egg champion” and the losers “eat their eggs”.
To this day, no one can beat my grandma – she has a secret technique (whether she’s the holder or the hitter). When she was younger, the champion in their household would take their winning egg and compete with other egg champions in the neighborhood.
Have you ever heard of this tradition or participated in an egg war?
