Best answer: What happens if my egg cracks while boiling?

But, not to worry! Whether the egg turns out bulbous and distorted, like the one gracing my salad pictured below, or creates cloudlike wisps of white, like the egg pictured in the pot above, it’s still perfectly safe to eat. Since it’s been thoroughly heated, anything potentially harmful should have been been killed.
