Trick for Separating Eggs: No More Broken Yolks!

|

Recently, my mother sent me a link to a YouTube video that demonstrated a clever way to separate eggs. I replicated the trick and it does indeed work, so I wanted to pass it along to you.

The key is to put your egg in a shallow bowl or, as shown in this video, a rimmed plate.  In order for this to work, the yolk cannot be submerged in the white, which happens in a deeper vessel like a measuring cup.

Try it yourself! Click on the link below for a demo!
