Lots of pav recipes on here, I am going to attempt to make one today - what do you do with all the egg yolks????

I use mine to make mayonnaise and lemon curd(to use on top of the pav).

I made sausage rolls and used egg yolk to glaze the top of them.

egg yolk custard

put into a bowl
6 egg yolks, 1/3 cup of cornflour, whisk in 1 cup of milk.
set aside.
Put in a saucepan
1 & 1/4 cups of whole milk, 2 tsp vanilla
sprinkle over the milk 2/3 cup of sugar
Do not stir, put on stove and watch for it to simmer.
Add a little hot milk into the cold, while whisking, maybe half, then pour it back into the saucepan, return to the heat. I turned my element down by 1/4.
stir with a wooden spoon until it is nice and thick.
This custard sets real fast, as soon as I noticed it thickening I removed it from the stove, kept whisking while it finished cooking.
I have covered it with cling film to stop it skinning over

I just made beautiful batch of banana and pecan biscotti:
1 banana, mashed
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees .
2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and salt, and stir together.
4. In another bowl, combine the banana, egg, oil and vanilla.
5. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ones along with pecans; stir well together.
6. Flour a board and turn the dough out onto it. Form two 8-inch logs. Put onto the cookie sheet and pat down to 1/2 inch thickness.
7. Bake at 180 degrees for about 23 minutes; turn the oven down to 150 degrees.
8. Remove the logs from the cookie sheet and cool for about 10 minutes, then cut them into 1/2 inch slices and bake for 15 minutes at 250 degrees F.
9. Turn the biscotti over and bake for another 15 minutes (when you get them out, the biscotti will still be soft; they will harden as they cool).

Add full eggs carefully to a generous lump of melted butter (Lurpak for me...). DON"T break the eggs.Start to cook them until the whites are almost set then add extra yolks. When they are warmed through, THEN you can carefully break the yolks and stir and you'll get the creamiest eggs ever.No need to add milk or cream - and serve before fully set.

(In case you are curious, my bad cholesterol is very low...)
