I bet you already have your favorite way to fry an egg—and scramble, and hard-cook, and so on—memorized. I did too. But, lucky for me (and you), it's my job to dig up surprising ways to cook things that just might be better or smarter or faster, so I've found a few tricks for eggs that have been a serious improvement to my breakfast, and—let's be honest—most of all, my dinner routines.

Your meals will be better because some smartypants discovered that adding a pinch of cornstarch makes magically creamy soft-scrambled eggs in 15 seconds, not 15 minutes. And that what deviled eggs needed wasn't more mustard or pickle juice but soft butter. And that frittatas benefit from a little more TLC than we've been giving them. Here are 7 of those game-changers—happy dinner.
