A Photo Tutorial On Separating Eggs

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: There are some very basic kitchen skills that every cook should have in their repertoire, and properly separating eggs is definitely one of them. This post includes an incredibly helpful photo tutorial that explains just how to do this so you end up with the eggs in their separate components, and the shell in the compost or trash, rather than in your egg mixture. --Genie]

How to separate eggs

There are many recipes for baked goods, including cakes and souffles, that require eggs to be separated. And it’s handy to know if you just want to whip up an egg white omelette for breakfast, as well. This is also a skill that can take a little bit of practice to master if you want to get cleanly separated whites and yolks, without bits of egg shell, every time.
