What do you do with the yolks?

When you have a recipe that calls for just whites or yolks what do you do with the other half of the egg??

if it calls for just yolks i will use the egg whites in scrambled eggs. if you have extra yolks you could make carbonara pasta.

If I have yolks to use up, I make custard ice cream, or a yellow cake, or sometimes a hair mask. If I have whites, I either fry them in some cooking spray or make meringue cookies

I always freeze in a zip lock what i have left over, until i have enough. Whites get turned into pavlova more often than not and yolks go to make custard or ice-cream base.

I've never froze egg parts before. Do they freeze okay?

Freeze them in an ice cube tray to use later. They freeze great!

Yeah I agree with the ice cream. You can also use the yolks to make a good buttercream frosting as well. Or make meringues out of whites.

Re: What do you do with the yolks?

I use the yolks to make egg noodles, which also freeze well. The whites I usually just give to DH fried; I never know what to do with them other than merengue. Good ideas here, though!

My husband makes omeletes on Saturdays, so there's that. Also, my children have always really loved fried egg yolks. They eat them like a cookie.
