Things To Do With… Leftover Egg Yolks

Whenever I have leftover egg yolks left after making meringue, I feel bad about just throwing them away. I hate wasting food so I’m always on the look out for recipes that use only egg yolks. I’ve searched the internet for recipes using only egg yolks, and I’ve also made some too, and I’ve brought them all together on this page. I’m sure many bakers have been in this situation before, so hopefully this selection of recipes using leftover egg yolks will prove useful!
