The Great White Way

Some people can't take a yolk. *cue laugh track* This is for them.

If your doctor tells you to lay off the egg yolks, better pay attention. It's not the end of the world. There are delicious things you can do with egg whites. Oh look, floating right to the top of my head are.... what else, but egg white omelets! I'm sure you've all made an omelet at some time in your life. It's not rocket science. Eight egg whites can make a substantial omelet for two. Cook the egg white omelet as you would a regular one. You can of course choose any number of fillings, but I swear by blanched spinach and some crumbled cheese (feta or mozarella will do nicely.)  Wouldn't you know it, I am not alone in my preference!

Fun and Fearless in Beantown likes it.

Even a website from Down Under has its own version (although they skipped the cheese... not too yummy.)

You're waiting for my verdict? How many sunny side ups? But I can't! Not this time. How could I possible make sunny side ups without the yolks?


  1. Give me EGGS or give me death!

  2. If I'm good and have an egg white omelet, can I have an egg yolk-rich flan for dessert? Or an egg pie?

  3. EQ - A life without eggs is not worth living :)

    Scrollwork - *shakes magic eight ball* Yes!
