When a recipe calls for egg whites only, what do you do with the yolk?


I want to make a recipe that calls for 10 egg whites. But, I don't like the idea of throwing out the egg yolks. What do you do with your egg yolks that are left after separating the egg whites?

    Diana, that sounds like a tasty idea. I don't have any pets, but maybe I can treat the neighbor's pet.

    Hello Niecey Docherty, I didn't know they could be frozen. I might give it a try.

    Wow IslandBites! You are a true culinary expert. I have never heard of some of these sauces. I'll have to look for recipes and try at least one of them. Thanks!

    Hello Paula, I have never seen just the egg whites in the store, but I will now look for them. Thank you so much for the tip.

    And, thank you for the pat on the back. I don't know how long I'll be at that score, but it feels nice for now.

    Thank you, Mary. I like your ideas. I'll go find your lemon curd recipe. It's fun to try new things.

    Hi Faith, it is for an Angel Food Cake that my husband asked me to make from scratch. Never made it before. So, I'm looking forward to the answers, too.

    They are actually called something like "Real Egg Whites"....Egg Beaters are the egg substitute. The egg whites are true whites of real eggs. They do come in the same kind of carton & will be displayed w/ egg beaters......:)

    Thank you for your answer srijithr. I like the idea of using it as a hair conditioner. I've never heard of that before now, but it is certainly worth a try. Your other ideas are also creative and worth trying, as well.
