Do you throw out your egg yolks?

I'm on a high protein, low fat/carb diet right now. My wife and I ate 12 egg whites for breakfast but I'm really hesitant to throw out a dozen egg yolks. Do you just throw away yours?

I do have 3 young boys. Is there anything I can make with 12 yolks that they would enjoy?

No help for your yolks, but have you thought about maybe buying the quart containers of "All Egg Whites" products available? My husband adores them & they last quite a long time in the fridge - although with your consumption rate, I don't think fridge time would be a problem - lol!

Hollandaise.




Frankly, I would throw out the whites and eat the yolks.

Me, too. I am not crazy about whites but like the yolks. Maybe you could move next door to me?

scrambled eggs, just add very small amount of water for each egg or do the same thing and make french toast. i add water rather than milk, just me but i think the milk makes them tought

Eggs (specifically egg yolks --and cooked, of course) are really healthy for dogs. Dont give them a ton, but a few once in awhile can be good for them. Helps w/ their coat and is a good source of easily digested protein. :)

If you do give eggs to your pets, do cook them first. Unlike years ago, raw eggs are now considered unhealthy for dogs & cats - especially cats. Has something to do with B-Vitamin utilization I believe.

I would say the custards for desert are delicious and easy to make. I make a gang of pies and if you have kids that like peanut butter. You can make a peanut butter custard pie.
