I went into the challenge optimistic, expecting it to be pretty difficult but, with some patience and technique, do-able.
The egg whites cooked nicely and for a second, I thought I could easily nail this.
Next, I had an idea. If the yolk was too large to fit inside of the whites, maybe using TWO egg whites would do the trick. I followed that instinct, and it looked much more promising. Once the egg whites completely covered the bottom of the pan and set a bit, I added the yolk.
But yet again, the stubborn little yolk found a way to slip out as I attempted to fold the third side of the egg white envelope.
After another failure, I contemplated ditching the whole thing. But I realized I shouldn't let myself get so worked up over this, and I could just settle for good old over easy eggs.
Would I recommend trying this at home? Sure, go for it! If you succeed, please share a photo in the comments because I would love to see it. I have, however, accepted that I probably will never attempt to make another egg envelope in my kitchen.
