I don't know if this is intentional or not, but 2 of the 6 cartons have a light blue text while the other four 4 have a dark blue text.

Costco Location

The box of egg whites can be found in the large refrigerated dairy room that also holds the milk and the butter. 

This location within the warehouse will vary depending on your local Costco.

Why Egg Whites?

Liquid egg whites are a healthier alternative to whole eggs. They have no fat or cholesterol and are low in calories.

While they can lack in flavor compared to whole eggs, they are a great source of protein and are eaten by many who are looking to improve their health.

Easy to Use Egg Whites

Personally, I’m not too familiar with liquid egg whites, but I am super interested in trying out the product. 

When I went through my no egg yolk phase, I was simply discarding the egg yolk when making breakfast. It was always a pain to get rid of the egg yolk while trying to preserve as much egg white as possible.

Costco Liquid Egg White - Whole Egg Equivalent and Prices

Simple Packaging

Kirkland Signature products are often known for their simple packaging and branding. Most items will simply show the Kirkland Signature logo, the name of the item, and a picture.

Costco-Egg-White-Equivalant-Whole-Eggs

Costco usually doesn’t do much more for the KS brand. For this item, I wish they did provide a little more information about how many whole egg equivalents are in each package.

10 Egg Equivalents Per Carton

I had to really examine the box to figure out that there is the equivalent of 60 total eggs in the entire package. Each serving is 3 tablespoons and is equal to one whole egg with yolk and each carton has 10 servings. 

One whole carton is the equivalent of 10 large eggs with yolk.  

The Equivalent of 15 Egg Whites

The most interesting part is that two tablespoons of Costco’s egg whites are equivalent to the egg white of one shelled egg. 

Delicious-Egg-White-Breakfast

If I’m understanding it correctly, each carton contains 30 tablespoons and actually has the egg white of 15 eggs.

Only Slightly More Expensive than Whole Eggs

At $1.58 a carton, they are maybe just a touch more expensive than a dozen whole eggs. It’s a small premium to pay to avoid having to separate the egg yolks yourself. 

If you are going for strictly egg whites and have no use for egg yolk, then you are getting the egg white from 15 eggs. For $1.58 that is a total steal.

We Love Breakfast

At the CFDB household, we have an all day breakfast policy.  We’ll eat eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and we go through eggs quickly. 

I’m not against egg yolks, but I am pumped to give these liquid egg whites from Costco a try. 

Egg Whites are an Easy and Excellent Substitute for Whole Eggs

My wife was equally as excited as I was to taste the egg whites so we used them right away for our next breakfast. 

She went with a wrap that included the egg whites, peas, cheese, and bacon.

I made my egg whites with chopped turkey bacon (as shown above) and shredded cheddar cheese. 

These egg whites can also be used as part of a breakfast sandwich or will even pair will with some Costco hashbrowns

How do the Costco Egg Whites Taste?

The texture was no different than your typical egg white, and just like regular eggs, it’s imperative to properly season them. 

There is a flavor difference between a whole egg and just the egg whites. 

Not as Good as Regular Eggs With Yolk

We both agreed that the liquid egg whites did not taste as good as egg with the yolk, and that it was more bland and neutral in flavor. 

Costco-Egg-White-Breakfast

This is to be expected, considering the creamy egg yolk is removed. 

Still Tasty!

While lacking a little in flavor, the egg was still rather tasty and enjoyable. The Costco egg whites integrated into the meal very nicely and didn’t feel out of place. 

Costco Egg White Omelet

The egg whites did a great job of balancing and completing each of our meals. 

Less Cooking Options than Traditional Whole Eggs

One downside to liquid egg whites, is that there are less traditional egg cooking options. 

You won’t be able to utilize some of the cooking methods that require egg yolks such as over easy, poached, or soft boiled eggs. 

Liquid egg whites won’t be as tasty or as versatile as regular whole eggs, but make up for it in nutrition and health benefits. 

Pro-Tip: Combine liquid egg whites with a whole egg to get the best of both worlds.

Healthy Egg White Recipes

Egg whites can be cooked very similarly to whole eggs, but often will need an additional flavor boost. 

Here are some of my favorite recipes on how to really maximize and use the egg whites to the fullest potential.

Egg White Muffin Cups

I Heart Nap Time has a great egg white muffin cup recipe that is fully customizable and helps make a quick and easy on-the-go breakfast.

Quick Recipe
1. Cooked desired vegetable and meat on stove until sufficiently browned.
2. Add meat and veggies to muffin cup and pour in egg whites. Leave 1/4″ at the top.
3. Bake at 350°F for 23 to 30 minutes or until the egg has puffed.  

These egg muffin cups are bite sized and can be filled with your favorite ingredients. 

Costco also sells Three Bridges Egg White Egg Bites which are absolutely awesome. 

Mexican Omelet

Just like whole eggs, liquid egg whites make for a great omelet. They do require a little extra flavoring, but this Mexican Egg White Omelet from GimmeSomeOven.com does the trick. 

Simply, prepare your omelet as you normally would but substitute the whole eggs with yolk for just the egg whites. The Mexican flair goes a long way with the egg whites. 

Egg White Frittata

Egg White FAQ

Can Kirkland Signature Egg Whites Be Whipped?

The packaging states, the liquid egg whites are going to be difficult to be whipped because of the pasteurization process. You are going to be better off using real egg whites separated from the yolk.

Final Thoughts

Kirkland Signature Egg Whites from Costco check off a lot of the boxes I look for in a product. The only downside is that you are sacrificing some taste for quite a bit of nutritional value. 

Otherwise, they are priced right, convenient, and are a solid addition to any breakfast meal.
