Non Food Use for Egg Yolks

Due to high cholesterol I am on a no egg yolk diet. Does anyone have a no-food use for the yolks? It hurts me to toss them down the sink!!

Use yolks for facials if you have dry skin.

See link: http://www.reci … skin/skin41.html

You can freeze the yolks for someone else who does alot of baking, but note the following:

Egg yolks will thicken or gel when frozen and may become impossible to use in a recipe unless they receive special treatment. To retard this gelation, beat in either 1/8 teaspoon (1/2 mL) salt or 1 1/2 teaspoon (7 mL) sugar or corn syrup per 1/4 cup of egg yolks (50 mL, i.e. about 4 yolks).

Label with the number of yolks, the date and whether you added salt (for main dishes) or sugar (for desserts or baking). Substitute 1 tablespoon (15 mL) thawed yolk for 1 large fresh yolk.

Why not use eggbeaters? Also, now the stores sell plain egg whites. Makes good egg dishes. Give it a try.

Why not? The answer is freshness to start with.

Do you have a dog? Dogs love the yolks, actually they love eggs, raw or cooked.

I'm sure my dog would love the egg yolks but are they good for him?
