I’m going to make a pavlova (if DS ever naps 🙄). What can I do with the leftover egg yolks so they aren’t wasted?

Spaghetti carbonara - traditionally made with egg yolks and no cream 😋

Make lemon curd

Ice cream! Or egg custard, lush with a grating of nutmeg.

Lemon/lime/orange curd
Hollandaise sauce and have Eggs Benedict/Florentine/Royale for lunch

Throw them at Gary Lineker. The most irritating tit on TV.

Melting moments.

Came on to say spaghetti carbonara too - so easy and delicious

Ice cream!

I'd do custard or lemon curd.

I made chocolate fondants not so long ago and they needed 2 more yolks than whites.

Or if you haven't got eggs to use up and have a conveniently located shop, you can buy egg whites in cartons to absolve you of this dilemma.

Crème patisserie - which can be frozen to use later.
