Every one of our recipes was created to use medium-sized eggs, as that is easily found in the supermarket. To make sure your eggs are the right-sized, get eggs that weigh 55g with shell. To determine that, follow the steps below when buying your next carton:
- Check the label for the total weight of all the eggs.
- Take that number and divide it by the total number of eggs in the carton
- The answer should be ~55g.
Carton of 10 eggs > Total weight = 550g > 550/10 = 55g
