Boil the egg, then immediately transfer it to a container filled halfway with cold water. Then vigorously shake the container.
You've probably heard it before: An oven's self-cleaning function can be super stinky. So stinky, in fact, I don't recommend running before a major holiday (read: Thanksgiving). Or really, ever. Just because there's a better way. With the holidays coming up, I figure now is as good a time as any to talk about that better way.
