I've been debating lemon meringue but can't really be arsed with faffing about making pastry. Anything else I could do with them? Or at least some of them to make something sweet?>

or a mousse of some sort?

I could just do meringues with some fruity bits or something I guess. Just thought that might be a bit boring

Just make meringue blobs (I find nests too tricky!). They freeze really well and defrost quickly, and you can use them later either just with some fruit and yohgurt for instant DCs pudding, or to make eton mess.

make lots of meringues - they keep brilliantly so you can put off thinking about what to do with them till you are more inspired.

or freeze them - egg whites freeze fine.

lemon meringue won;t help as you need the yolks to make the filling, otherwise I'd have suggtsed making a lemon meringue with cheesecake type base (you know, crushed buscuits and melted butter) to avoid having to make pastry.

oooh, MrsBadger, I'd never thought of doing lemon meringue with biscuit base. Fab idea, will add that to my book to remind me next time I toy with the idea of making one.

plain old meringues it is. Then I can freeze & have a think when I'm more in the mood. Thanks

smile I do that base a lot

the best dodge is when you can;t be arsed with pastry for a quiche/flan - use cream crackers (or or any crackers, or oatcakes) to do a savoury version of the same thing

Did you know you can freeze egg whites very successfully?

Why not freeze half then make chocolate maccaroons with the other half, but we sandwich them with nutella or melted chocolate.

So what did you make that needed 8 yolks?

I tried some home made ice cream as my other half was given 2litres of fresh cream by a restaurant owner he knows but that didn't work out & left me stuck with just the whites & couldn't think of anything inspiring to do with them.

I went with meringue shapey things which are now frozen & will be made into pud of some description on Sunday
