Transfer to plastic disposable piping bag for ease stuffing eggs. Set aside.

Stand egg whites upright in egg cups or trim thin slivers from the closed ends so they will stand upright on their own.

    • Absolutely – as long as they equal the amount called for in the recipe. So, 24 U12 shrimp would be about 2 pounds of shrimp.
