Leftover egg yolks - help!!!

Can anyone please advise me what to do with frozen egg yolks? We're hooked on pear flan so I'm using lots of whites and stashing the yolks. Already done custard, but need new ideas. Cheers. JM, Romford, Essex.

  1. When I saw your title, I was going to post that you should make flan because my flan recipe uses 6 egg yolks and 5 eggs, but then I read your post and decided that was not the solution for you. So, I guess m suggestions would be to make creme brulee or banana cream pie or quiche.

    1. Quiche. 2 whole eggs, 3 yolks
      Mayonnaise, great with egg yolks only
      Bernaise sauce, same as mayonnaise

      or just move next door to me. I have the opposite problem; I use the yolks and have tons of whites in my freezer.

        Make meringues with your egg whites. I made some a couple of days ago using Ina Garten's recipe...delicious! Mine came out tasting a little like pralines as I hiked up the heat just a tad...so they were golden and so good. Perfect for a summery dessert filled with berries & cream.

          I tried that. I really don't like meringues it turns out and my husband hates them. They went into the trash.

            lemon curd!!! Oh, that is a good one!

            1. If I had a bunch of yolks, I would mix in a little cream or milk and make french toast or a strata.
