What about hollandaise sauce? Or a bread and butter pudding.

245sam, Apr 13, 4:11am
or to make lemon curd (either to use as a spread or filling for lemon tarts or as a yummy lemon curd topping/filling for your pavlova) orbaked egg custard or to enrich a basic custard powder-based custard or with a little added water or oil as the egg part of a crumb coating for fish or meat (chicken, schnitzel or whatever other kind of meat)... . . :-))

When I make a pav, I also make Nigella Lawson's
Chocolate Cherry Trifle (goggle is your friend)

Custard with vanilla bean?

st_allie, Apr 14, 6:00am
I read somewhere you can freeze them for up to 4 months. . in case you don't get a chance to use them in the next 3 days ( keep covered in fridge in the meantime. .

Spinach and ricotta cannoloni.

Aioli or other mayonnaise.

Creme Anglaise or a simple, but lovely egg custard.

raebea, Apr 14, 8:50am
if I make meringes(sp) I try to make a bacon & egg pie the same day & add the yokes to the other whole eggs.

Cream Brulee yum. add 1/2 C cream & 1 D sugar per egg yolk & a drop or 2 of vanilla ess. Dissolve sugar in cream over hot but not simmering water, once sugar is completely dissolved, remove from heat, beat egg yolks together & whisk into cream. Pour into ramekins, place in a water bath & bake in a moderate oven until custard just holds it shape when a knife is inserted down the side. Cool & refrigerate. Sprinkle with sugar & place under a hot grill until sugar caramelises, cool & refrigerate until serving.

FOODTOWN MAGAZINE ZABAGLIONEUses 6 egg yolks at a time! ! Into the top of a double boiler put in:
6 yolks
6T caster sugar
1t vanilla essence
½c dry masala or dry sherry.
Whisk for about 10 mins until thick and frothy (when drizzled should fall in ribbons and thickly coat the back of a spoon)
Remove from heat and cool to room temperature
Serve warm or chilled
They show it served like mousse in glasses, but also suggest pouring over cakes or icecream!
Sounds delish!

I put 3 beaten egg yolks in a pot with 2 dstp of sugar, 1 dstp butter, 1tsp lemon juice, ½tsp grated lemon rind and 1 medium tin of crushed pineapple.
Stir over a low heat until it thickens. If not thick enough mix a little cornflour with a little water and thicken like that.
I spread this on top of the pav when cold then cream on top of that. yum.

LEMON HONEY [microwaved].
1 cup sugar
100g butter
Grated rind of 1 lemon
Juice of 3 lemons
1 egg + 3 egg yolks.
Put the butter, sugar, rind and juice into a little jug and cook on HIGH/100% power for 1-2 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved. Mix and gradually add to beaten egg and egg yolks, stirring well. Return the mixture to the jug and cook on MEDIUM/50% power, stirring every minute until the mixture thickens, 3-5 minutes. The mixture will thicken more as it cools. Store in the refrigerator. Hope that helps.

Then you put cream on top of that. Absolutely divine.
THE RECIPE IS: Melt 2T butter, 1 cup brown sugar. Add 2 T flour, cook in microwave for 1-2 min. Add 2 egg yolks, 1 cup milk mix till thick. Add vanilla and cool.

I make lots of pavlovas and use the yolks for custard and it's the yummiest custard. You'll never go back to Edmond's custard after this.

Mix together:
4 Yolks
½ cup Caster Sugar
2½ oz Cornflour
Now add:
3 cups hot Milk
And whisk together
Put back on heat and stir all the time so pot doesn't burn till the mixture thickens. Be patient it will thicken.
