OH my egg wash is whole egg. Did you say whites only? Sorry. BTW I have had yolks left from recipes that only needed whites. I just put extra yolk in my next scrambled eggs. Never come across a double yolker when making scrambled? I got one just the other day. I was making scrambled by family request otherwise those would have been MY over easy!! I LOVE yolks!! If I could figure out how to just fry yolks to dip my rye toast in I would be in heaven!! LOL

I got a double yolker just the other week. First one in three years, but then it's the first carton of eggs I've had to buy in three years. My hens have never given me a double yolker.

I'm glad to see this come up, too. Thanks, Laury!
I had the same Q, just two days ago, after french toast, too, wouldn't you know, pacanis! And, I do like panko breaded proteins. In the past, I had almost always chucked the egg down the drain, better safe than sorry, but now I will start to refrigerate it for a day or two just in case.

DON'T put raw egg down the drain. Some will settle in the elbow trap and the next hot water will cook it and clog the pipe. It happened to my mom. Wipe out the bowl with a paper towel into the garbage bag.

Now that's some interesting info. When I separate an egg I always do it over the drain.

And then, I might've followed with a pour of boiling water down the drain mistakenly thinking that the dissolving heat would help clear the pipe...

That's good info to have but it won't affect me here for two reasons:

1) No running hot water in my kitchen in the Phils

2) We never have egg wash left over....if my hubby makes French toast he keeps soaking bread until the wash is gone.

But seriously, good info, I never knew that. I'll pass that along...thanks!

It doesn't take much heat to cook an egg. And BTW thats what my mom did. Well actually she made breaded cutlets and pasta. The pasta water cooked the egg in the drain.
