I have a recipe that calls for 4 large egg whites, but I have a small jug of egg whites. I was just wondering how much of the egg white I should use to equal the 4 egg whites.

Hi Rachelle, 3 Tbs equals 1 large egg, 1/3 cup equals 2 large eggs, 3/4 cup equals 4 large eggs.  I took this off of the box of egg whites in my refrigerator.  Hope this helps.  The box I used is all egg whites.

GRANA here;
 Hi RACHELLE C;
I believe that 2 egg whites = 1 whole egg(1/4cup) ..it stands to reason then that if  1/4 cup egg whites= 1 egg; so 1/2  cup egg whites =2 eggs;
I think 1/2 cup egg whites should = 4 egg whites. I'm pretty sure this is correct ? but please double-check my math/figures; Hope this helps you or someone else to find your answer( a poor night's sleep&  tough time w/pharmacy&  dr office has my head spinning& I cannot  think clearly.
I would use 1/2cup egg whites to  = 4  egg whites
Undecided

 one egg=1/4 cup
2 eggs = 1/2 cup
2egg whites= 1 egg(1/4 cup.)It stands to reason, then that 1/2 cup egg whites = 4 egg whites
I would use 1/2 cup egg whites in your recipe that needs 4 egg whites I hope this  helps you or someone else to determine the correct amount to use ;

I also took the measurement conversion of the box - works great!
