How To Separate Eggs By Rebecca Gordon Buttermilk Lipstick Southern TV Cooking Personality Spring Entertaining Party Ideas Classic Meringues Cooking Lessons Sports & Tailgating Parties Entertaining Tide & Tigers Today Tailgating Host Raycom Sports & News Network WBRC Fox 6 Birmingham Alabama Pastry ChefHow To Separate Eggs

Separating the egg white from the egg yolk is a relatively simple process.
Keep a few valuable tips in mind to ensure your recipes are a success.

The 411

If a small amount of the yolk gets into the egg whites, use a spoon to retrieve it.
Remove as much as possible to ensure they whip to full volume.

A small bit of shell may fall into the egg whites during the process.
Simply remove it before proceeding with the application.

The Technique

Crack the egg with purpose against the side of a small bowl.
Carefully split the egg using your thumbs to pry the shell into two pieces.
As you separate the two halves, quickly catch the yolk in one of the shells.
Allow the egg white to fall into the bowl.

Alternate the yolk from each shell half until all of the egg white collects in the bowl.
Place the egg yolk in a separate bowl. 
Repeat the process until the desired number of eggs have been separated.
