Expert Tips

Careful not to get any egg yolk in with the egg whites. The fat from the yolk will reduce the final amount of meringue you get.

Eggs are easy to separate with the aide of an inexpensive egg separator. These handy gadgets work best when the eggs are cold. Passing eggs between broken shells is not recommended because of the potential for bacterial contamination.
