Egg Yolks??

by Howie Hart » Tue Jul 15, 2014 9:23 am

Many recipes call for egg whites, such as the Chocolate Meringue Mousse that Robert recently posted, that calls for 8 egg whites. Not being one to waste something, what do you do with the yolks? Mayonnaise and Hollandaise come to mind, but what else can you do with several egg yolks?

Add one to a couple of whole eggs to make a richer omelet or scramble?

Good idea, Dale. Carbonara with home made fettucini. :)
Scrambed and omelets would work, too.

I don't have an ice cream maker, but the eggnog would work.

Also, egg wash for a really golden brown, soft bread crust like challah.

Creme brulee, I have the opposite problem. I always have egg whites. Since I am allergic to cream of tartar it makes things difficult.
