Watched a cooking show on seafood. They ran a film clip of them putting together a clam bake on the beach. I noticed they put flats of whole eggs in the shell and then covered with seaweed. How does that work?

That's a really neat way to get rid of those old eggs, without having to go to the dump. People think you're cooking them in the shell in a really neat way, when actually you're just leaving them behind.

Sometimes I think I really don't live in New England. I have never seen anyone put eggs into a clambake. Okay, in all honesty, I haven't seen anyone do the sausage thing, either.

Me either. Maybe it was Mr Austin they saw getting rid of his eggs. He's a stealthy bugger and loves a good practical joke.

If somebody has a fit and makes you go back and dig up the eggs, I shell them, put them in brine and sell'em as pickled eggs. Maybe you've seen them on some of the store counters...

Ive got to admit, ive seen some eggs placed in seaweed in a clambake, ive also seen potatos and corn

As clambakes go-why junk up the plate, with anything but clams and lobsters and a pound of melted butter??
my all time fav!!

After doing a little research on this egg thing... I do believe they are included in the clambake mostly to check and see if the seafood is done. If the egg is cooked through... so is the rest of the bake. If not... try again in a few minutes with another egg. I guess my old method of looking to see if the shells are open is not as gourmet-approved as the egg test!

I always used the open shell rule for steamers, but then again, my brother and i use to dare each other to eat them raw, along with many other marine creatures


I have many old, dear memories of family clambakes,
