Perhaps you should define what you mean by lots of eggs. A standard recipe for avgolemono soup serving four calls for three eggs--less than one egg per person. Kaiserscharrn (also serving four), a fluffy pancake served with fruit compote calls for 4 whole eggs plus 12 whites--a lot of eggs, but when you get down to it, not many yolks.

Avgolemono is the best. Put that at the top of the list.

chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, a poached egg on top makes anything taste better! We put boiled eggs on salads, and who doesn't love an egg salad sandwich?

Ice cream uses a lot of yolks. Paired with meringue cookies it is great way to use up eggs. I also love alice medrich's chocolate mousse recipes that use eggs instead of dairy.
