ISO: something w/ 2 egg yolks

I made muffins today that only called for egg whites. Miraculously, they were the moistest muffins I've made recently, which was pretty surprising. But anyways, I have two egg yolks left, and was wondering if there was anything I could do with them that would not end up leaving me with extra whites from needing more than two egg yolks.

Does anyone have any recipes that call for only two egg yolks and is relatively easy to make?

If nobody has anything, I could just add the extra yolks to an omelette or something and make it fattier, but I was hoping I could get something more interesting out of them.

Darn good question! I usually avoid recipes that use yolks or whites only for JUST THAT REASON...

Can you make custard? Hmm...

You can make vietnamese pork...it's steamed and topped with egg yolks then steamed to let the yolk set and eaten with rice.

Make a boiled custard base for ice cream--or just to drink.

You could add it to a stir fry.

Yes, custard cream!! Whip it with a half litre (pint) of milk, some flour and sugar, and cook in a double boiler until it attains a right consistency.

You can use it for a filling for tart (topped with fruit of your choice), pour over fruit crumbles, or as Gretchen suggested, base for ice cream, or any way your fancy suggests... a very versatile and tasty choice!

If nothing else, feed them to your dog, over his feed. He'll love them, and they'll make his coat shiny.

I would try the custard, except I don't have a double boiler and burned myself last week with my makeshift one. Would I be able to make custard without it? And any more specefic amounts for the flour and sugar? I've never made custardy things before.

For just 2 extra egg yolks (or whites for that matter), I just add them to an omelette for the next day's breakfast.

That was what I figured I could do... I was just hoping maybe there was something that called for yolks that I could make while I had them.

If I don't figure out how I can make custard or have the other ingredients for it, that'll probably be what I end up doing tomorrow morning.
