Too many egg yolks

What can I make with extra egg yolks?
I’ve already made lemon curd!

There are cookie recipes Netherlands/ Scandanavian (sp?) That call for grated hard boiled eggs. I have lots of recipes for cookies that call for egg yolks.

Carbonara for dinner and zabaglione for your dessert/coffee.

Some of my favorite uses for egg yolks:

1. creme brûlée. I will NEVER pass up this on any dessert menu.
2. ice cream:
3. hollandaise sauce
4. flan
5. pateis de nata (Portuguese egg tarts)

one more: Nigella Lawson's Lemon Linguine,

If my cholesterol wasn't so high, I would be making this every week.

I don't follow this stuff closely (I'm lucky enough not to have a problem with it) but I believe they've found that blood cholesterol doesn't really have much relation to cholesterol intake. Have at it.

Meatloaf/ meatballs. If you're confident in your pastry or breadmaking skills (enough to go off recipe) yolks can be added to all sorts of doughs with interesting results. Cooked yolks (this would be an interesting experiment without the whole egg- I'd try baking in a water bath) can be chopped and added to pastries, salads etc. Can't remember the name offhand; there's a Portuguese dessert that calls for strings of egg yolk to be cooked in a sugar syrup.

Smaug - your savory notes reminded me of poaching them in a sauce (like shakshuka), or including in stuffed rolled chicken duck or veal.

Or you can make egg tempera paint- paintings made with this have lasted thousands of years.

• Caesar salad dressing
• Custard (basically vanilla pudding or lemon curd without lemon)
• Extra rich bread or rice pudding which uses eggs - mix yolks with whole
• Extra rich scrambled eggs - mix with whole eggs
• Ice cream (basically vanilla pudding that's been frozen)
