Thread: Extra egg yolk?

    Default Extra egg yolk?

    OK, I have an extra separated egg yolk! What gets done with an extra
    separated egg yolk? Freeze it? Make a piece of toast and use it as
    butter instead <VBG>? I haven't a clue! Turns out a piece of egg shell
    went into the first separated egg-white, and I didn't want to mess with
    trying to remove the piece, so I used an 'eggstra' <G> egg Good
    thing there an extra egg was removed from the fridge for a 'just in
    case' episode, which did happen!

    I freeze them and use them sometime in the future for custards and ice
    cream.

    It's about five cents' worth of egg. If you don't feel like cooking it
    now and eating it, I'd say toss it.

    I'd add it to scrambled eggs in the morning. Or I'd poach it and eat it.
    Yolk is the best part of an egg.

    I'll often just eat the egg yolks as is if I have extra ones. <g>
    Either raw or runny poached.

    Another thing that can be done with them is whip them together with a
    whole egg and make eggstra rich scrambled eggs. ;-d

    You apathetically threw a whole egg away and seconds later you're
    trying to be frugal to save just a yolk of another?

    And they're even better from preserved egg (in lye, Chinese style).
    The whites I'm indifferent to, but those greenish-purple-grey yolks
    are excellent.

    Back when I ate eggs I would have just put it in some scrambled eggs. I
    believe my mom would just put it in a custard cup and cover it with a bit of
    water until she was ready to use it.

    My first thought was custard/flan.

    I made a souffle a couple months back and had an extra egg yolk. I
    figured I would just nuke it about 30 seconds and munch on it. Little
    did I know it exploded in about five seconds and went all over the
    inside of my microwave.

    When microwaves were new, I was fairly young and I was learning to
    cook. I nuked an egg to warm it, and when I cut into the egg with a
    fork, the egg yolk exploded. Pow! I blinked my eyes and eyelids were
    heavy, I had powdered egg yolk all over my eyelashes, my hair and
    everywhere else. I won't do that again.

    Yep, made the 'chocolate ice box cake'. When I broke the first egg to
    separate the yolk from the white, some egg shell had gotten into the
    white. So, I had use an extra egg for its white, leaving an extra yolk.
    Didn't want to include any egg shell in the finished product!

    I always jut fish the eggshell out. It's an acquired skill, but it's not
    that hard.

    It was easier to resort to an extra egg instead.

    Do you use an eggshell to do it? That's the way I was taught and it
    works for me, so if the occasion ever arises it's not a complete
    catastrophe.
