I've given up on this batch for meringues. They were from a box, and now i'm just annoyed and don't want to waste the sugar/whites. Can I do anything with 1/2 cup whites and 1 cup sugar, whipped but not at all structured? Some kind of cake?
More of a summer idea, but Orange Julias comes to mind. There are copycat recipes out there that call for one eggwhite per each smoothie.
Dont you hate it, when even after a good beating, you just cant convince something to go your way? :)
Make a big batch of candied nuts, like the walnuts with sage on this site. Or make up your own version by mixing the sugary egg whites with a raw nut of your choice, some spices (maybe cayenne and paprika, or rosemary and orange zest) and bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
thanks! I managed to get enough structure to get them into blobs, but I am sure this answer will be useful for another frustrated cook very soon
Good idea - the nuts; but, you also pour into a cocktail shaker with some vodka, shake well (with ice of course) and serve in a martini glass.If nothing else you will feel better about the whole thing after two drinks !
