How to Separate Eggs
If the idea of separating eggs gives you separation anxiety, don’t fear: Do it in three easy steps, as demonstrated in this video.
What You Need
- egg, two bowls
Crack the egg
Tap the egg on a flat surface, such as the countertop, to crack open its shell.
Let the yolk settle in one half of the shell
Open up the egg over one of the bowls, allowing the yolk to rest in one of the open halves.
Transfer the yolk back and forth
Carefully pour the yolk into the other half of the shell, letting the white drip into the bowl. Repeat this step, shifting the yolk from one shell to the other, until all of the white is sitting in the bowl. Then carefully pour the yolk into the second bowl.
