      1. Make ice cream! Or quiche, just without the whites. Or lemon curd.

        1. Make creme brulee.

          I just had the same problem in reverse. I made creme brulee for a dinner party yesterday and I had 9 leftover egg whites. I made Italian chocolate hazelnut cookies with the whites and a nice egg white omlette for my doggies. Everyone was very happy.

          1. Some of the yolks can be used as a binder in meatloaf. The rest can be used with some whole eggs to make a frittata.
