How many eggs is 100g?

Eggcellent question my friend! If you’re like me, you’ve probably found yourself in the kitchen with a recipe that calls for a certain weight of eggs but only have a carton of good ol’ reliable. Fear not my dear foodie, for we are about to crack open the mystery and get to the yolk of how many eggs make up 100g.

The Cracking Point

First things first – let’s break down some math to figure out the average weight of an egg. Now, before you run away at the mere mention of numbers (I know I want to), bear with me as this’ll be over easy…err easy peasy. So where were we? Ah yes, average weight of an egg. According to USDA (United States Department Of Agriculture), Large sized has on average ranked at around 56-63 grams depending on shell thickness etcetera.

Since every recipe may specify different amounts, using rules which will provide accuracy within reasonable limits by breaking down weights according their sizes can give us what we need!

Egg Size Weight
Small <53 g
Medium ~53–61 g
Large ~61–69 g
Extra-large ~69–77 g
Jumbo >77 g

That said, if one were lucky enough to own medium-sized ones falling between 53-61g then they might use almost two per 100g whereas those who prefer extra large would just need one.

Now grab your favorite frying pan and realize just how much trouble Hank Hill’s father-in-law was when he tried replacing his Strickland Propane with eggs all along

Weigh In On Things

If you aren’t quite confident eyeballing or guessing what size your eggs are, then you might want to break out your kitchen scale. Place an egg (or eggs) in the center of a digital food scale – ensuring one is placed at a time- and press down until it stops moving forward. The display will show you the weight in grams or ounces depending on which setting was selected beforehand.

Emergence Of Volume Method

When all else fails, we’ve got volume as an indication:
Since 1 large egg is approximately three tablespoons/45 mL of liquid measure, it makes sense that two Large ones would come up being equivalent to about 100g.

Although measuring volumes such as cups and spoons provide professionals more accurate results, there seems to be no need for them when working with just counting up medium-sized ones i.e. if nine fit into one cup like they do often!

Always avoid dropping them onto another ingredient too fast where their shells could possibly crack; This tells well enough how fragile they really are yet have proven valuable tool from breakfast omelettes all around the world!

In Conclusion…

In conclusion folks, as always we hope this article cracked some yolks whilst also serving its purpose – helping answer your question about how many eggs make up 100g for cooking recipes.
Remember friends- whether a recipe calls for certain weights or not specifically named sizes especially when discriminating against any perfectly acceptable medium sized eggs 😉 – now we know what rough amount remains within reasonable limits given typical weights per size besides never denying adding splash of humour along way.

So go ahead! Poach away my lovelies cuz’ cooking without breaking some kind of egg-shell ain’t real living…
