Default extra egg yolks?

any ideas for using up extra egg yolks. i looked online and as you can imagine the recipes for extra yolks are all really heavy on the carbs and sugars.

so far i've come up with mayonnaise, and bearnaise sauce.

Pretty much anything you make that requires eggs won't be harmed by adding one or two extra yolks - omelet, scrambled eggs, etc. Poach yolks gently in simmering soup. Or poach till hard, and treat them as you would hardcooked eggs - top salads, make egg salad, etc. Look up how to thicken sauces with egg yolk. Hollandaise sauce (but you are already making Bearnaise, which is similar).

Seconded!

I adore it on beef, but it also makes a great salad dressing.

Thanks for the link! I made hollandaise a while back & found out I didn't care for it. But béarnaise is a different critter. I think I'll like it. But I do have one question - fresh tarragon is hard to come by here, is dried OK? Or another herb?

I eat mostly yolks anyway but the other day I didn't like the look of some egg white so I poured it out and was left with 4 yolks which I scrambled and cooked with some pre roasted leftover veggies which tasted like fried rice from back-in-the-day. I had zucchini, red onion, red pepper.

I wonder if the lemon curd needs that much sweetener?

I have successfully halved the sweetener in such recipes, and it winds up tasting better. Of course, I am very sensitive to sweet now, which is a bonus. Berries and plain yogurt which prompts a SAD person to make a face is plenty sweet to me.

Don't forget about ice cream; the frozen custard recipes always use many yolks.
