Egg Foam Even the smallest amount of FAT from the egg yolks will prevent the formation of beaten egg whites. Even if you get a small amount of the yolk in with the white mixture, it will not foam.
For best results, use a METAL mixing bowl when beating egg whites. Plastic can trap tiny bits of fat and oil.
List 4 ways that eggs can be prepared: Hard/Soft Cooked Scrambled Fried Poached

Bring the water to a boil, then immediately turn the temperature down to a simmer. Simmer eggs for minutes Drain and quickly cool eggs with cold running water. Gently tap the eggs to crack the shell, and peel If the shell sticks to the egg, it is not cool enough. Cool eggs completely before beginning to peel.
