I was just looking at pavlovas... maybe too much competition for my cake

Forgot, nougat is also called torrone (Italian) or turron (Spanish). A great way to use up egg whites.

Unless you want to make macarons to go with your ice cream, egg whites freeze very well. but why aren't you using whole eggs in your ice cream? I never use just egg yolks, no matter what the recipe says.

Tell me more! Just add the eggs in whole? Sub 6 whole eggs for 6 egg whites? How does this effect freezing? I cannot do same-day here, so I am probably looking at a hard freeze.

Julia Child has a delicious souffle with egg whites only. It's savory. Ithink it's in volume one of Mastering.

Well I am babysitting for my grandson so I don't have Julia at the ready. As I recall, it is about 7 whites (she gives cup measurement too) and nonwhole eggs. And lots of gruyere... I have used frozen whites successfully. Try googling. Send me your email and I will copy it for you ans send it. But not until tomorrow.

Julia's recipe doesn't really help you a lot, though, because it uses 4 egg yolks and 5 egg whites, so you only get to use up 1 of your excess whites.

You can make meringue sheets, and then assemble them with whipped cream in layers, like a cake. Best to do it abour 4 hours before serving...

And one more baked good: Financiere. The batter will keep for up to a month refrigerated and you can bake a few at a time... On an "as needed" basis. Also the actual baked financiere will keep for at least a week in a tightly lidded tim, or even in the fridge. Egg whites are the humble gold of kitchens. Never throw them out again!

Macarons! The egg whites will be even better if you let them age for some time so you do not have to worry about using them right away. Otherwise, my go-to when I have egg whites after making ice cream is marshmallow sauce because you can eat the two together!
