PARTS OF AN EGG: meaning and examples


Do you know the name of the different parts of an egg in English?

Today's first word is: (egg) yolk

Meaning: the round yellow part of the middle of an egg.

Today's second word is: (egg) white

Meaning: the part of an egg that surrounds the yolk.

Example 1:
Before adding the eggs to the cake batter (masa), you have to separate the whites from the yolks.

Eggs can be prepared in various ways, and are typically eaten for breakfast in the English-speaking world.

-Scrambled eggs (huevos revueltos)
-Hard-boiled eggs (huevos duros)
-Fried eggs (huevos fritos)
-Poached eggs (huevos escalfados)
-Sunny-side up eggs (especially US English, fried only on one side; a "fried egg" is often cooked on both sides, this indicates only one side and the yolk is often soft.)
