❓FAQs

What is the best way to eat egg whites?

There are so many fun and tasty ways you can enjoy egg whites. Some of them include:

– making them into a white omelette with loads of veggies and a dash of olive oil
– turning them into an egg bake like an egg white frittata
– beating them with sugar into meringues to the top on an impressive dessert
– making them into scrambles and accompanying them with toast for an easy breakfast
– lightly frying before sliding them into buns as part of a sandwich

And loads more! These are just some I could think up off the top of my head. Remember to always get creative in the kitchen and try whipping up something that’s uniquely yours!

What do egg whites do in a recipe?

A lot of people favor egg whites over whole eggs because of their low-calorie nature but they contribute much more.

Egg whites are an essential part of many recipes due to their ability to provide structure, texture, flavour and to act as a leveling agent for many baked dishes, especially some of my favorite desserts.

What are the benefits of eating egg whites every day?

There are a lot of health benefits of egg whites, many of which you can enjoy by consuming them regularly. Egg whites are great for heart health as opposed to whole eggs that contain the yolk.

Although there’s a lot of debate on whether egg yolks are bad and there’s tangible evidence that in moderation, they’re not. If you’re on a medically restrictive diet and want to double down on them anyway without having to give up eggs as a whole, egg whites are a great replacement.

They are also a great source of protein and would help build muscle in that regard as well as are low in calories so if you’re trying to avoid those, egg whites would be great for you still.

What can I do with a bunch of egg whites?

Liquid egg whites can serve loads of purposes but if I had some on hand, i’d probably make myself some nice lemon meringue pie for a tasty dessert, a swiss meringue buttercream to go over my cake, scrambled eggs with a side of butter-seared toast for a filling breakfast or a powerful English frittata for a wholesome meal!

What can you eat egg whites with?

Fried egg whites would go well with toast or between slices of fresh bread for a sandwich or inside a whole host of other kinds of dishes.

Just think up something you feel would taste good and try it out. You never know if you’d be creating the next viral egg white recipe!
