Default This has seriously egged me out!!!

Ok, this is really confusing me. Now, you all agree that a liquid on gaining energy changes to a gas. This has been proven and is a fact.

My Question - On boiling an egg, the liquid inside accepts heat energy and according to the above theory, it should turn to gas, but it becomes solid. How? Why?

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.
