How to Separate Multiple Eggs When Cooking

How to Separate a Whole Lotta Eggs

When I separate an egg for a Ramos gin fizz, I do so the good old-fashioned, pour-from-one-shell-to-the-other way. But what about when you're making, say, a homemade ice cream, and need to separate a dozen eggs? When bulk separation is necessary, here's my more efficient method:

  1. I crack each egg, one at a time, into a small bowl. If it's A-OK, I transfer that egg to a large mixing bowl — this way, one bad egg won't ruin the whole mix.
  2. With another medium-size mixing bowl nearby, I reach in with clean hands, and gently cradle each yolk, allowing the whites to slip through my fingers while being careful not to burst the yolk's membrane.
  3. I then place each separated yolk, one at a time, into the medium mixing bowl.

Et voilà! I'm left with one bowl of yolks and a separate bowl of the remaining whites. How do you separate a bunch of eggs?

And as you cradle that last yolk to transfer it...........it breaks. Lots of lightly colored scrambled egg whites? Whites are now worthless for meringue or any other process requiring beating them. Take a few more steps and bowls.
