If you Sous Vide you can pasteurize your own eggs for mousse, eggnog, Tom and Jerry cocktail batter etc @ 135°\75 minutes. Egg whites start cooking about 142° so the whites will be fine but possibly a little cloudy from the warm bath. Pasteurized whites may take a little longer if being whipped but no texture or flavor difference when pasteurized. After bath gets to 135 put eggs in a ziplock bag put open bag in bath and fill with water then seal and drop it. If an egg breaks, the SV bath doesn't turn into egg drop soup.
