The clever egg yolk hack you will need to try for yourself

A man's egg separating hack has gone viral.

Cracking the shell and going back and forth to separate the whites from the yolk are a thing of the past as a TikTok video reveals an ingredient that will make your life a lot easier.

Callum Gray demonstrated how a clove of garlic can help even the most amateur chef complete the complex task in seconds.

In the video, Gray rubs his fingers on the garlic and then in one swift motion pinches the yolk and pulls it apart from the whites of the egg.

He then dumps the yolk into the mug, and the egg whites are left perfectly separated.

Gray's video has racked up more than 1.7 million likes and 17,000 comments from stunned viewers hoping to try out the technique for themselves.

Many marveled at Gray's cooking method, one commenting, "TikTok really teaches me more than school."

Another speculated, "I think it's [because] garlic residue is sticky."

One user was confused as to how Gray discovered the hack, questioning, "How does one figure this out?"

Another person offered their own piece of advice to the TikTok chef.

"If you want your hands to stop smelling of garlic rub them on stainless steel under cold water."
