Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference, such as knowing how to separate egg yolks from egg whites.  Knowing this can make your time in the kitchen so much easier and enjoyable.  It isn’t too difficult to do, but can be tricky if you don’t use a gentle hand.

How to Separate Egg Yolks from Egg Whites

Ingredients:

1 Egg

2 small bowls

Your hands (optional)

Directions:

Method 1:

Crack egg.  Over a bowl, gently move the egg yolk back and forth from egg shell to egg shell, keeping the egg yolk in tact until all the egg whites have been completely separated from the egg yolk.  Carefully place the egg yolk in the other bowl.  Do yourself a favor and watch the video below:-)

Method 2 (the messy way):

Crack egg.  Over a bowl pour the entire egg into your hand.  Open your fingers slightly and let the egg white filter through your fingers and into the bowl.  Gently move the egg yolk back and forth between your two hands until the egg yolk is completely separated from the egg whites.  Carefully place the egg yolk in the other bowl.  Once again, do yourself a favor and watch the video below:-)
