I saw a recipe the other day for a very wet stew which you finish by breaking eggs on top so that they poach in the juices. I think it was on the food52 blog.. You can do this with a thick pasta sauce like a bolognese as well.
Or, id make devilled eggs with pesto and capers...yum!

Angel food cake will take all your whites -- then you can use the yokes in custards or souffles. Alternate whole egg uses: frittata; quiches or any of the great suggestions above! And if your worried that you have enough eggs for two quiches (or more if you make mini's), keep and eat what you can -- freeze the rest for a later date.

Those strangely wonderful sephardic hard boiled eggs. Several recipes if you google. You put them in a dish with a bunch of papery onion skins. Add some water, oil, and a couple tablespoons of coffee grounds. Bake overnight in a very low oven. They taste good and are like nothing else.

Make Chinese Tea eggs. Such a great snack. Good in as a ramen garnish too.

I would separate them. Use the yolks to make a creme brûlée for tonights dessert, and save the egg whites to make macarons for a later date!!

*macarons yield better results when made with "aged" as opposed to "fresh" egg whites.*

Huevos Rancheros or Shakshuka for dinner! I think there is a shakshuka recipe on the site (middle eastern eggs poached in a tomato-based pepper sauce). Delicious.

Lemon curd. Delicious on toasted English Muffins, melba toast, or in a tart. It will keep for a while in the fridge.

<Lemon curd. Delicious on toasted English Muffins, melba toast, or in a tart. It will keep for a while in the fridge> That only keeps if you can keep your spoon out of it.......

My thought are ice cream, enriched breads (like brioches, challahs), hard boiled eggs, tortilla espanola

I love the Joy of cooking's recipe for POPOVERS, so tasty, Also I like to make devliled eggs! Especially with the farm fresh eggs i get every week, once you have fresh eggs like that, you can never go back to the store bought. Lately when i make the deviled eggs, I've been adding some small chopped roasted beets to the yolk mixture and it makes the filling look pink, which makes for a different and interesting presentation.
