    Hi :)

    I'm making a pavlova and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for using the yolks from the eggs?!

    I don't want to just chuck them out...!

    You can freeze them til you need them.

    I used mine to make the kids real Icecream after defrosting them.

    Some of the cakes require more yolks abd it gives a richness to an omelette.

    Add them to mashed potatoes to give a creamy taste.

    I've been avoiding real mash since joining SW cos back in the day my mash consisted of half a tub of fresh cream and half a pack of butter :eek: but yesterday I added 1 egg yolk per person to the mash and whilst it isn't the same as cream and butter, it makes a pretty good substitute.

    And if you're wondering what to do with the whites then I added them to 1 egg this morning for a breakfast omelette.

    Hello there, I just tried the Lemon Curd but it wouldn't get thick enough to spread on Toast:( So my plan....mix it with Quark or Fromage Frais and freeze it

    Jen, you can buy egg whites in a carton from most supermarkets. I don't know how much they cost, but saves wasting yolks :)
