My husband is definitely from Maine. He likes red skinless hotdogs aka Red Snappers. I think its actually a New England thing. Anyhow he put a few in a saucepan to boil (I prefer my hotdogs grilled and without all that dye) and then decided to add a couple of eggs because he wanted some egg salad with his hotdogs. Guess what happened? When he emptied the pan, the boiled white eggshells had turned pink!
