    Easy for me. I would cook them and eat them. I love eggs anyway but raw of half raw. Sell some of the eggs and you won't get too many.

    You can cook the yolks and feed them back to your chickens as it's a good source of protein for them, or you can make daffodil cake which is just like angel food but you separate the eggs and use both yolks and whites for a two tone cake. I can't find the simple recipe online, only ones with added things like OJ or almonds... I originally found the recipe in the first issue of the From Scratch magazine. I'll look for it in the morning and post it if you're interested.

    We had chickens years ago and our dog loved the raw eggs. I would give him a whole one and he would hold it for a few seconds then gently crack it and lick the egg out. I had to watch him closely so he couldn't sneak into the coop before me and steal one.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Sorry to say, but I throw away the yolks. A single egg yolk has 80% of the cholesterol you should have in a day. Our family went to eating just egg whites when we have eggs for breakfast. On Weight Watchers a whole egg is 3 points, but 3 egg whites is 1 point. I never liked the yolks, anyway.

    Use your egg yolks in yeast breads reduce the milk a bit and add about a quarter cup of yolks and make any kind of bread you like .Bread allows for a lot of variation.QUOTE]

    Fine to look at it that way though .... consider the nutrition you are missing by not eating the yolk.

    I put butter in the skillet and make a quick omelet. I've also heated up bacon or sausage and threw some flour or corn starch to make a roux then combine milk/cream with the eggs (whipped lightly), make a sauce and just throw it over toast or biscuits. Just a different kind of pork gravy over biscuits.
