Many recipes use eggs, but not always in their entirety. Most of us keep our leftover egg whites/yolks in the fridge for several days, with the intention of using them, but rarely get round to doing so.
Does this sound like you?
We’ve already shared some unusual uses for eggs, and today we’re sharing the best uses for egg whites and egg yolks to make sure you never let these valuable and versatile protein sources go to waste again.
Uses for egg whites
If you’ve got a dish full of egg whites to use up, check these brilliant ideas out. From desserts to snacks and even DIY beauty products, there’s something for everyone in the list below!
Who doesn’t love a Pavlova in the Summer?
Although they look impressive, there’s actually not a great deal to them making them a great option even for those new to baking. Meringue, cream and berries are all you need to make this crowd-pleasing dessert.
For the meringue, you’ll need egg whites, and lots of them. Depending on how many you have, you could either make one large Pavlova, or smaller mini ones.
For an even easier option, skip the cream and berries and use your messy meringue in a delicious Eton Mess.
2. Bread glaze
There’s homemade bread and then there’s homemade bread. If you want to add a little something special to your bake, try applying a bread glaze. Not only will it give a gorgeous shiny sheen to your loaves, but it’s a great way to use up leftover egg whites too.
Whisk 1 egg white with 1 tbsp water and brush over the loaf before baking.
3. Low-fat egg white omelette
Standard egg omelettes contain heaps of protein, but they can also be high in fat (thanks to the egg yolks).
If you happen to have some leftover egg whites leftover, why not opt for an egg white omelette? It will still be delicious and high in protein, but lower in fat and calories – ideal if you’re trying to shed a few pounds.
4. Chocolate mousse using egg whites
Moving on from healthy uses for egg whites to something slightly less so, is a chocolate mousse.
The incredibly light, airy texture of mousse comes from whipping egg whites. Head over to Delia’s site for a classic chocolate mousse recipe.
