I'm not much of a cook so I have to ask this question.

Since the BML is frozen and kept in the freezer until it's time to use and then thawed for a very short time period, since it is usually eaten within an hour at my house, why does the egg have to be boiled when you put it in the BML recipe?


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming
WOOOO HOOOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!

if put in raw it changed the consisity (I know I just spelled that WAY wrong). It would also probably change the flavor of it.

IT WOULD CHANGE THE CONSISTANCY AND IT WOULD TASTE DIFFERENT...oops caps lock! Sorry! Also there are reasons we don't eat raw eggs...oh and has anyone ever tried freezing a raw egg?...I wonder what happens to it....
you can always pan scramble if you want something faster. Just no butter or oil!

You definitely should cook the egg thouroughly to rule out any salmonella issues.

Found a quote from Charlie H on Salmonella:

Charlie Writes:
The key to preventing Salmonella is cleanliness in handling and cooking food. And not leaving it in temperatures above 40 degrees F too long.

could they really get salmonella? Out in the wild they eat raw bird eggs. We also feed them live pinkies (some frozen) and we don't worry about ecoli from the meat. Some people even feed day old chicks. And bugs and other gross things that would probably make us sicker then sick.

I could be wrong but I don't think we need to worry about salmonella.

But I think that's why they live more longer in captivity cause of how we feed them.

A lot of these diseases are spread by factory/farm practices and poor hygiene. Even if they gliders don't get sick from raw eggs, their humans could contract it through fecal material or other contact if you don't wash your hands in time, touch something else, etc. I wouldn't even risk not cooking it.

There are many reasons why gliders live longer in captivity. diet is one of them. You would think though that if eating eggs in the wild made them sick then they wouldn't eat them. But that still doesn't anwer why people who feed bugs, pinkies, day old chicks etc why they aren't worried about ecoli (maybe not so much bugs).

I really don't know much about salmonella or ecoli and I am not trying to disagree with anyone or cause an arguement. Just trying to put this together in my own head!

yes , they do eat the eggs in the wild, but they don't open them and leave them out for several hours.
