10+ Things To Do With Leftover Egg Yolks

AvatarPosted by

Let’s say you found the perfect paleo coconut macaroons recipe, (or any other recipe that only calls for egg whites).  You made it, it was a success (or not!) but now you’re left with a bunch of extra egg yolks you don’t know what to do with!  So what should you do?  I guess you can throw it out, but it breaks my heart a little to know that all this egg yolk is going to waste.  Here’s 10+ Things To Do With Leftover Egg Yolks!

So here’s a list of ideas I’ve assembled on what you can do:

Pin for later!


      1. Hi Tina, Jean,
        I usually give the yolks to dogs after cooking them in little oil. But I want to boil them rather than fry so that it’ll be healthier for them. Is this possible with egg yolk only?

        1. Do you mean to boil the egg yolk? Well, it is possible but you’d have to use something to drain the water so you can remove the egg yolk from the water when it’s cooked like a Skimmer Spoon/Strainer Ladle.

  1. Wow! I love all of these tasty options! I’m always saving yolks for making pastry cream, but this gives me lots more great ideas! Thank you!

  2. Ha, I wish I read this yesterday. I was making friands with egg whites and had a few egg yolks leftover. I sometimes just throw them in the next omelette, but these ideas would have been handy.
