best recipes that include raw eggs

Now that I have my own backyard flock of chickens, I feel pretty darn good about eating their raw or lightly cooked eggs. I am already indulging in plenty of poached and sunny-side up, but what about all those other recipes that use a raw egg that I have tended to avoid? Now I can't think of what they were! Homemade mayo--there's one.

      Mmm, steak tartare. I love Anthony Bourdain's recipe and a couple yrs ago I started a thread about it here: Some folks posted other raw steak and egg salads that look pretty damned tasty.

      Also, not really raw, but you could make hollandaise sauce in a blender. To pour over all those delicious eggs your making. Yummm!

    2. Caesar salad with coddled eggs (okay, they're sort of cooked, but not by much)
      Key lime pie
      REAL eggnog

        +1 for REAL eggnog, with rum and cinnamon. I bought a "carton" of eggnog 2 years ago, and not a single ingredient had ever been inside a chicken or a cow. It was from a factory in Bayonne, and it was nasty.

      2. Aioli ... mmm egg yolk, garlic, salt, olive oil.
