Tip: In recipes where the egg remains uncooked or lightly cooked, it is recommended that pasteurized egg products be used. Pasteurized egg products, such as liquid whole egg and liquid egg white, are available in the refrigerator or freezer section of most grocery stores. We used Burnbrae Farms Naturegg Break-Free Liquid Egg Product in this recipe.
