Any savory ideas for lots of egg yolks?

I make a lot of egg white omelets, and keep throwing away the yolks. I was thinking of starting to save them for a later use, but all I can think of are desserts like creme brulee, custards, etc. I'm not eating much sugar at the moment...is there something savory I could make with a bunch of egg yolks? Also, how long will the yolks keep in the fridge? Can I freeze them?

Thanks in advance...

    1. You can freeze the yolks, for about a month in ice trays,break yolk, add pinch of salt to each cube. You can make Hollandaise sauce and add spices,shallots,peppers.It can be as savory as you like,use it like a dip or on meats.

      1. Mayo? Though that doesn't really fall into the healthy category.
        You could always use it as a binder in other foods...

        1. Man, if you're making egg white omelets, why would you want to cook the yolks?

            Yeah, if you're not averse to eating egg yolks, why not just enjoy them in your omelettes?

          2. my initial thoughts were hollandaise sauces or savory custards
