Home cooks can turn to TikTok for everything from cooking hacks to meal inspiration. In September, TikTok user sunnycusine posted a video tutorial on how to create a perfect egg envelope, and it’s recently been making the rounds on Twitter too.

The first step to achieving this envelope effect is separating the white from the yolk. Watching the video, you can see sunnycusine cover the bottom of a non-stick pan with egg white, letting it cook completely before ladling the yolk into the centre.

Peeling the white off of the pan, sunnycusine folds four sides over the yolk to form a square pouch.

The envelope seems to be a clever solution for getting well-done egg whites and a super runny yolk at the same time.

You can see the yolk run in the second video shared by sunnycusine:
