To pasteurize your egg whites, you can make a Swiss meringue: combine the 2 egg whites with about 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a stainless steel mixing bowl. Heat over a double boiler, stirring constantly, until sugar is melted and egg whites are hot to the touch. Remove from heat and whip until fluffy and stiff. Alternately, you can substitute 1/4 cup pasteurized liquid egg whites and save the raw egg whites for another use. Pasteurized whites take longer to whip, but will work just fine.
