Thanks, all, for the great ideas! I think I work out enough to "sin" with these, BTW, indybob, but I appreciate the sentiment! Wink

I'm thinking eggs benedict on Sunday morning sounds pretty duuuurn tasty! Razz

Excellent! Glad to see a fellow exerciser. In this case, I vote for Creme Brulee, straight up, no funny stuff.

came across this simple recipe for a lemon vinaigrette from the Culinary Institute of America. they say to pair with dry whites and recommend it for sweet greens (i.e., butter lettuce), roasted root vegetables & grilled or sauteed fish

1 - egg yolk
2 tbsp - lemon juice
1 cup - evoo
sea salt

just whisk all the ingredients together and add salt to taste

These weren't leftover yolks, they were tasked. But one of my favorite treats are Hong Kong-style Egg Tarts, and the closest Chinese bakery that makes them is about 20 miles from me. So hello, YouTube!

Made a batch of 16, using 4 egg yolks and puff pastry, which I think technically makes them Portuguese-style. But still delicious, and a nice hack. My son is into egg-white omelets, so that part will go to him.

Jabe11 and his sous chef (a.k.a. his daughter) have treated me to fresh fettuccine tossed in olive oil and grated parmesan topped with a salt-cured egg yolk.  Sometimes we gild the lily by adding fresh shaved truffles.  We also grate salt-cured egg yolk on asparagus for color and flavor.

Yep, I'll have E make some more with our upcoming cassoulet dinner.  Not sure if we'll use them or not, but I'm getting 6-7 eggs a day right now from the layers.  Make sure you bring empty egg cartons so I can fill. 

I'm always looking for recipes that use 10-12 eggs.  Spanish tortilla and quiche being the best.  I literally have around 5-6 dozen eggs around at any time...a family of 4 can only eat so many.  If anyone has good ideas to use up a shit ton of eggs, I'm all ears.  I'll take a look at the egg tarts mcneeley posted, and maybe its time for egg foo young.

You could make those little macaroon-like things that you see all over St Emilion, I can't remember the name blacktiedetailing. They had the same problem in the old days when they fined the wine with egg whites, so they made these egg-yolk little cakes that are incredibly rich.

Hi guys, I was just reading some information regarding eggs, the yolk in particular and just from googling the subject alone i can see countless threads and articles online all of which contradict each other! It really does seem as though its split 50/50 with regards to people that believe the egg yolk is good/bad and i have seen others state that you can only eat one yolk a day where as others say just bloody eat the yolk , end of!! I don't see eating the yolk as being dangerous so i wont ask is it safe but rather, does the egg yolk contain good fats? All i read is stuff about cholesterol! In short, do egg yolks contain good fats or not? I often eat them, sometimes ill have 3 a day and i always counted the fat content as healthy fats when adding up my daily fat intake
