Yolks pulling away from whites

Gualtier Malde | May 13, 2008 06:50 AM

I have noticed something that occurs occasionally when I poach eggs, and even once when frying: As the egg is coming to the fully cooked stage, the white and yolk can separate. I have never tried it but I get the impression I could gently remove the yolk intact.

What causes this?
