    ​I always pair Angel food cake with Pound cake. One uses the whites and the other uses the yolks. You can also use yolks in custards or coconut cream pie.....yum!

    * Cook them and add them to salads for extra protein
    * Mix with hard boiled eggs for egg salad
    * add with eggs for omelettes, frittatas, etc.
    * Lemon Curd
    * Sponge Cake
    * puddings and custards
    * mayonnaise


    Ask Mr. Google for egg yolk recipes ... and you'll get lots of ideas!

    Years ago, when we made scratch cakes, we made yellow chiffon cakes with the yolks. I'm sorry, I don't have the recipe. They were very light and we beat the egg yolks very much.

    Custard, ice cream, noodles (freeze the extras), lemon or orange curd, hollandaise sauce, Bernaise Sauce. Use to bind hamburgers, meat loaf or meat balls, feed them to your pets, I do not like eggs at all, but make all the above fairly regularly.

    custard or mayonnaise. You can make mayo in the blender, wicked easy. Also I used to make custard in cups, put in fridge, and have it with fresh fruit for a great hot-weather breakfast.

    ETA - if you have lots of extra eggs, why not trade with your neighbors for some fresh garden produce, or whatever?

    I have, on occasion, added them to fried eggs for our younger grandkids and told them it was their lucky day because they got an egg with a double yolk! Doesn't use up too many, but really impresses the young ones!

    You can make noodles, dry them then bag them to keep for months

    Cook them and add to your dog's food if you have a dog. I had chickens a long time ago. I just loved having them, but I had way too many eggs. I've always had a bunch of dogs, too. I'd scramble a huge skillet of eggs for them every night and add to their dry kibble. They had the shiniest coats in town.

    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.

    There are sponge cake recipes that use only yokes.

    My Mom always made spritz when she had extra egg yolks

    Spritz Cookies

    1/2 lb butter
    2/3 c sugar
    3 egg yolks
    1/2 tsp almond extract
    2-1/2 c flour or more
    dash salt

    Cream butter, add sugar, then egg yolks. Add almond extract then flour. Extrude from cookie press onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in hot oven (400 F) Watch carefully, takes 5-8 min. Makes 10 dozen wreaths (the smallest cookie you can make with a cookie press)
