What to do w/12 leftover egg whites?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I just made two quarts of gelato (chocolate and zabaglione) that used a total of 12 egg yolks. Trying to figure out what to do with the whiles. The thought of egg white only breakfasts in succession isn't very appealing.
Other than meringue pie, anyone have any suggestions? I have tasted some meringue cookies that were good but don't have a recipe.
Thanks-
RTF

Macaroons.

Use one whole egg and two eggwhites for breakfast if you get tired of eggwhite omelets.

Rufus,
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page here, you'll see a similar thread an egg whites - might be something useful for you there.

I like using them for Chinese egg-flower soup (Google some recipes)

You're going to need a couple of yolks for the cake part...but make a chocolate cake with boiled icing.

I THINK you can freeze them - anyone know for sure?

Siduri, you are correct. You can indeed freeze them.

That's good news, chefelle, i often have whites. same for yolks?
Do the whites whip up with the same volume after freezing?

Sunday breakfast when OH is on leave, is usually the full Scottish. I like a double yolked fried egg and not too much white, I crack an egg in the pan, put the white of a second egg into a bowl and plop the yolk in the pan with its buddy. The spare white goes into a freezer bag, and sits in the freezer and accumilates till we want a pavlova, meringues, or whatever. Great system, works for me.

Add a couple of whole eggs, some flour, vanilla and sugar and you've got souffle!

Read the Harold McGee chapter on eggs in "On Food & Cooking." They whip up better than normal egg whites.

Financiers! I love making them (and eating them) so much that my question is usually "What to do with 12 leftover yolks?" :lol:

Use it to make icing! You can make cupcakes, cakes, cookies. Something sweet always makes the day :)
