The adaptable egg
Eggs are among the most versatile foods, crucial to making culinary magic in countless dishes.
- Leavening – Whipped egg whites expand when heated, providing fluffy lightness to meringue and soufflé.
- Binding – When cooked, eggs firm up and hold looser ingredients together, as in muffins and meatballs.
- Thickening – The thickness of custards and puddings is due to the egg proteins coagulating under heat.
- Emulsifying – Lecithin, found in the yolk, helps to combine mixtures of water- and oil-based ingredients, like in salad dressings and mayonnaise.
- Glazing – To give your baked goods an attractive shine, brush them with a beaten egg before popping them in the oven.
- Coating – Beaten eggs help the breading stick to your favorite crispy dishes, like fried fish, chicken breasts, and vegetables.
- Garnishing – Chop or slice a hard-boiled egg on top of salad, vegetables, or even pizza for a bright finish.
- Enriching – Eggs add nutrition, along with flavor and color, to dough-based foods like cake, challah and pasta.
