Eggs, eggs and more eggs!
 
Curlies, does anyone have a recipie or suggestions for things that use up alot of eggs? My housemate decided to buy 60 eggs...that he now doesn't want, but I don't actually like eggs in an eggy form (scrambled, fried, omelette etc)

Bring them to me. We go through about that many in 2 weeks!! yum.

Curd
Creme brûlée for yolks
Pot de creme and creme caramel for yolks and whole eggs
Pound cake
Sponge cake
You don't like frittata?!
Egg salad
Soufflé
Pastry cream
Creme anglaise aka custard for the Brits
Brioche
Challah
Meringues with whites
Financiers with whites
Cream puffs/eclairs/etc since pâte a choux will use a good amount, plus the pastry cream

Saria 10-14-2012 01:49 PM

Mayonnaise/aioli
Hollandaise
French toast
Bread pudding
Fresh pasta
Sabayon/Zabaglione
Yellow cake with French or Swiss or Italian buttercream

If you make sponge cake (Genoise, chiffon, or other) you can roll it up with pastry cream or curd as a filling as well.

Dammit Saria, you said all of mine!

You could also make oatmeal with eggs for added protein and thickness and all that.

Saria 10-14-2012 02:26 PM

Ha!
Semifreddo is another good one
Custard tarts
Ice cream is a given, but I don't know if you have an ice cream maker. Semifreddo is ice cream-like without the machine

If you like angel food cake, it uses up a bunch of egg whites (about one dozen to be exact) should you have leftover ones.

French toast

Saria 10-14-2012 02:33 PM

I got that one too. :p

murrrcat 10-14-2012 02:35 PM

send them to me.

I love all eggula things

Saria 10-14-2012 03:25 PM

You can of course also make quiche and other savory custards like strata, though I'm not sure if you dislike those as well.

You can freeze eggs, too.
Egg whites in particular are easy to freeze and whip up better for things like meringue once they're older.

Any sponge cake with filling will kill a dozen eggs easily. Dobos torte for example takes over a dozen to make.

Oh, or a crepe cake. The crepes use up at least three eggs and then pastry cream for the filling for at least another three.

Eggs are the worlds most-perfect food. I use that many eggs in 2 weeks, easy peasy. Make quiche for dinner one night. Egg salad for dinner a couple days later. Bake some cookies. Have eggs and bacon for breakfast. You'll be through them in no time.

I'll scramble eggs and add them to random things. Rice dishes, white chili, stir fry.

I eat hard boiled eggs every day.

you can send me about 2 dozen. I need to make deviled eyes for my halloween party.

Just as an alternative to find ways to use up 60 eggs... Lots of food banks are now equipped to accept items that need refrigeration, and their "most needed" item is very often high protein foods. Or check local shelters/group homes. Tomorrow is World Food Day, as it happens.

Lotsawaves 10-15-2012 06:35 PM

You can use the whites for a facial mask.

You can also blow them out and paint the shells.

It's almost Halloween. You can egg people and/or their houses and cars.....j/k

Did anyone say fried rice? Egg drop soup? Forget the name of it (Saria probably knows) but it's a Korean dish with hot white rice and then chopped up fresh cold veggies on top and strips of tofu and fried egg and a spicy sauce - soooooo good.

Bibimbap maybe? So yummy!

Also, make carbonara. A batch for four people can use up some eight eggs or so. Carbonara is just such a great pasta dish. Eggs, pork product of choice (guanciale is traditional and best, but even just bacon is delicious), Pecorino (or parm), pasta, and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Garlic is debatable (I like a little in there, though). It's so simple that it shouldn't taste as incredible as it does.

If it's the stone pot you mean, Amneris, then yes, bibimbap. :)

I have somewhere, one or two recipe books form my old grand-grand-mother.
There were several recipes, for 6 or 8 portion cakes, calling for 40 or more egg yolks, almond flour, butter and sugar. Whites for the topping.
I don t know if you can substitute sugar, but, if you can, that would be an Atkins paradise.



Ps. I tried those cakes many times as a kid, they were more than delicious.


Ps2. I have to find these books.:cya:
