use them to make custard or add 2Tbs water to them and make an omelete or scrambled eggs.
Make a rice pudding or bread and butter pudding, mix the egg yolks with the milk before pouring over rice or bread and butter.
Beat them up with water and milk and make french toast ... sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or maple syrup.

Mayonnaise or lemon curd.

4 egg yolks will make a double sweet short pastry recipe. I then chill and roll out and put into pie dishes and freeze. When you want a dessert and can't be bothered making and rolling pastry you have a convenient, homemade pie bottom. Defrost for one hour, put in a blind and bake it till mostly cooked then go for it.

You can make lemon or chocolate tart, fruit pie (pre-cook the filling) with meringue, or anything else you might want to cook in an open pie. conversely, you can roll out a top to fit and freeze separately. Then it is so convenient to make a fruit or sweet pie.

You can just freeze them. Sometimes you get a recipe that's yolks only (mmmm hollandaise). Apparently ice cube trays work well, I'd just use a plastic container and write how many are in there.

The cream patisserie in this recipe uses extra egg yolks.
Profiteroles with chocolate liqueur sauce

75g butter, chopped
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup (180ml) water
¾ cup (110g) plain flour
4 eggs

Creme patissiere
2¼ cups (560ml) milk
1 vanilla bean
6 egg yolks
2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
½ cup (75g) plain flour

Chocolate liqueur sauce
100g dark chocolate, chopped
30g butter, chopped
1/3 cup (80ml) cream
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or Cointreau

Note: Can be prepared a day ahead. Fill the choux puffs close to serving and reheat the chocolate sauce.


Preheat the oven to moderately hot (200°C). Combine the butter, salt and water in a medium saucepan; bring to the boil, stirring, until the butter is melted. Add the sifted flour and stir vigorously over the heat until the mixture leaves the side of the pan and forms a smooth ball.

Transfer the mixture to the small bowl of an electric mixer. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating until the mixture is thick and glossy before adding the next egg.

Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture about 4cm apart on lightly greased oven trays. Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 15 minutes or until choux pastry is puffed. Reduce the oven temperature to moderate (180°C), bake for a further 10 minutes or until browned and crisp.

Make a small slit in base of choux puffs to allow steam to escape. Return puffs to a moderate oven for about 10 minutes or until dry. Cool to room temperature. Cut a small hole in base of puffs.

Just before serving, place the creme patissiere in a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain tube; fill the puffs with the creme patissiere. Serve drizzled with chocolate liqueur sauce.

For the creme patissiere, bring the milk and vanilla bean to the boil in a medium saucepan; remove from heat, stand 10 minutes. Remove vanilla bean. Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until thick and creamy. Whisk in the sifted flour, then gradually whisk in the milk. Return the mixture to the saucepan; cook over a low heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens. Simmer, whisking constantly, for two minutes. Remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl.

Cover the surface with plastic wrap; refrigerate until cold.

For the chocolate liqueur sauce, combine the chocolate, butter and cream in a small pan, stir over a low heat until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the liqueur.

Unfilled puffs suitable to freeze. Chocolate liqueur sauce suitable to microwave.

Caramel custard for the op of your pav - have a gander at trademecooks

I make a lemon curd & put on top of pav. Just use grated lemon rind, juice, sugar & yolks. Thicken in microvwave. Taste & add more juice or sugar. I get Gr8 comments from my pavs. Makes a sweet & sour taste. Very yummy!

Put each yoke into a shot glass and serve with roas potatoes or hot chips as a dipping sauce. Yum as
