    eggs ... anyone else do this?

    Shop Now
    occasionally i find myself eating eggs an odd way

    ill throw the whites away and over easy kinda cook 4 yolks ...

    i love over easy eggs or fried eggs, but i get sick of the whites ...

    anyone else do this?

    from what i understand the whites have about 55% of the protien, but the yolks have the fat as well .. so it doesnt bother me to have that gooey richness running over my bacon, sausage, beef, whatever meat im eating ..

    am i crazy? LOL

    If I have to separate eggs for something I'll sometimes enjoy just the yolk, but I can't stand to waste food. Even egg whites. Whisk those babies up into meringue!

    or make macarroons -- just with palm sugar, coconut, and the egg whites. good stuff. add chocolate, raspberries, whatever. all good.

    how long can i "keep" the whites do you guys/gals think?

    macarroons could be good, but i try to avoid any sugars at all costs, and i dont even have any familiarity with palm sugar ...

    i just dont know of anything to do with the whites ... and DAMN those yolks are awesome

    Do everything with whites. Throw them into soups and stews and you won't even notice they're there. Dredge chicken and fish in them before coating with crushed pork rinds or coconut flour. Whip them for meringue in a primal pie. Don't waste such a great food!

    I agree...don't waste 'em. They have too many uses, both as an ingredient, and a food source.

    I wouldn't keep them for more than a few days outside the shell. They will congeal and get viscous as more air comes into contact with them. If you save them, seal them up tight with as little air inside as possible and store in the forward part of your fridge. They could get frozen in the back if your fridge runs cooler. Also, putting them in the back means you may not see them, they go bad...and you wasted yet another great food! =P

    Cook the whites and use them in egg salad (4 whites two yolks is almost as good as whole eggs).
    There's always egg drop soup.
    I use egg whites to clarify homemade broth.

    I NEVER throw food away! I cook the egg whites and pour over raw yolks. With a little gluten free soy sauce and a dash of black pepper (nattou is good here, too!) = yum!

    I get the whites out of the way by eating them first, leaving nice little sealed runny yolks waiting to be ingested whole and then squished to liquid in my mouth!

    I have trouble eating the yolks! I know they're the best part but I have to force 'em down. No problem hardboiled- but runny or hard on a fried egg grosses me out.
