Over the bowl, pour the egg from one half of the broken shell into the other, letting the egg white fall into the bowl, but keeping the yolk intact in the shell halves as you pour.

Tips & Warnings

  • Crack the egg at its midpoint and open with care.
  • If you're planning to whip the egg whites, take special care not to get any yolk in the white. Whites that have any fat at all in them will not whip properly. It's usually not a problem to have a little white left in the yolk.
  • Try not to catch the yolk on the edge of the shell. It'll break.
