Yet another use for eggs
Or to be more specific, egg whites.
I just thought that I would put this out there.
Recently I have been trying to up my protein, and egg whites are just another way to do it.
I have begun to substitute them for tortilla wraps, as a large fried egg white, if made to be thin,
seems to work in the same way.
If you then add a filling (with my personal favourite being beef mince) just before the egg white is fully firm, and roll it into a wrap on your pan, it holds together reasonably well.
Give it a go, and perhaps you would enjoy it.
What happens to the yolk?
Ah, this is simply for egg whites I am afraid, I buy them without yolk from the UK chain, Waitrose. To my knowledge they are available via online ordering. Sorry that I could not give a better answer.
Not the OP, but I always have extra whites about from making mayo and other things.
Neat idea! I always have whites left over from yolks which have been dropped into various "aise" sauces.
i came up with a couple of ideas ...
First, similar to this idea: living in the ice age: Bacon & Fried Egg Sandwich
That, or make up a "mega egg": living in the ice age: Leftover Egg White Breakfast
Egg whites from Waitrose? I've not seen this.
Yolks are great, but whites are underrated.
Oh, yet another use is "pancakes" - whip up the whites and fold into a cream cheese to make a batter. Drop onto a frying pan to make little cakes. You know, "drop scones".
That sounds great - must give it a go!

By the way, some Waitrose branches sell "Two Chicks" egg whites, but they are often difficult to find.
Of course ... I've seen these at Sainsbury's, I think.
