HELP! this may be a dumb question...Can I use egg whites in a carton for this recipe? I think it would be time consuming to separate the eggs. I was also looking for it to be more cost effectine?
Yes, you can....though some brands work better than others.
I make mine with Kroger brand. Depending on your area, you will need to figure out which works best for you. For me, the store brands have worked more consistently than the national brand.
perfect thank you so much...it seems like it's more cost effetive to buy a carton of egg whites than dozens of eggs...has anyone found this to be true?
Absolutely true BUT you have to make sure you get the right brand. Some will not whip and you will just be out more time and money than if you were cracking them. Can't help you with the grocery store brands though, I buy mine commercially in giant buckets.
I have not made IMBC, but I just made SMBC with carton egg whites. They turned out fine. I personally couldn't see a difference during the process.
I used "All Whites" from Crystal Farms. I didn't have much of a selection though, as it was either that or walmart version and I found those pretty watery for cooking, so I didn't want to take the chance.
