Default What can you do with egg yolks?

Whenever I make mousse or anything with a lot of egg whites, I always feel so bad throwing out all the yolks.

Any good ideas of how to utilize these (besides just making eggs)?

Save em for a hollandaise. A sabayon. Bernaise. You can add yolks
to alfredo sauce. Lots of stuff. Google is your friend.

Baking cakes/breads/pancakes/waffles... box cakes certainly won't know
the difference, can only be an improvement. Can add those yolks to
smoothies too... use in puddings of all kinds; chocolate, rice,
tapioca, bread...

Unneeded egg yolks generally belong in the same place as those very
useful shells...in the garbage.

However, you may wish to check your mousse recipe. Many use the yolks.

Make lemon curd. (Or orange or lime curd) Make some good yellow cake layers
using a recipe that uses just egg yolks--see The Cake Bible--and freeze them
(well wrapped) if you don't want to eat them right now. This will enable you
to have a cake on short notice in the future.

The most obvious thing is leche flan. If you just have a few yolks to
dispose of, we've already discussed mayonnaise (which includes aioli)
and hollandaise in the last couple of days.

I have exactly the opposite problem. I often have leftover whites.
Sometimes I even throw them away. I never throw away yolks. An
excuse to male Hollandaise, or even mayo, which every civilized person
knows is made with egg YOLKS.

I freeze them in plastic containers, 4 to a container. Then thaw 'em
out when I want to make pavlova.
