    I don't, but several members of my family use raw eggs for their cereal instead of milk. The idea of salmonella scares me off, but they like the taste of raw egg so much they're willing to risk it. Does anyone else enjoy eating raw eggs, or stuff with raw egg in it? Or am I in a family of oddball loons? [​IMG]

    Come to think of it, I know the answer to that last question already [​IMG] [​IMG]
  2. Gag! My dogs do, LOL But I've had salmonella before (and spent two days in the hospital)...so I wouldn't be willing to risk it! (I got mine from a Japanese place out of chicken).

    I put two in a protein shake each day.

  5. ONLY if you have egg producing chickens should you EVER eat raw eggs. Eggs from the store have a very high chance of carrying samonela. Raw egg is very good for you if they're from the right source. They have very high nutrition and if you only ate 4 raw eggs a day you would be healthy.

    Growing up, I would join my father in drinking raw eggs. He would drop one in a glass, add a little vinegar, salt and pepper, stir it up with a fork and drink it. I can still remember the taste. Been too scared of salmonella ever since to try it, but maybe when I get my own eggs.

    [​IMG] Could never understand the jest of the term "go suck an egg" Because every time I heard that. I would.

    This is true!

    I was always afraid to eat cookie dough with raw egg in it.
