Step 5: Separate Eggs

Picture of Separate Eggs
If this is the first time you are separating eggs, practice while making scrambled eggs (so it doesn't matter if you mess up).

1) Gently crack the egg down the middle and pull it apart over your bowl while keeping the egg yolk in one half.

2) Pour the yolk back and forth between the eggshell halves, letting the egg whites fall into the bowl.
3) Save the egg yolks if you will use them in another recipe, if not you can throw them away.
