Next time you find yourself with leftover egg whites, this is the place to come! I’ve gathered up over 50 egg white recipes, so whether you have one egg white or ten, you can find a way to put it to good use!
So let’s say you made my favorite cookies this morning. You know the ones–the ultra gooey, buttery, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. I imagine by this point you’re licking melted chocolate off your fingers, taking long sips of cold milk, and contemplating whether you should have another (you should). You head back to the kitchen and notice the small container with a lone extra egg white on the counter. What are you supposed to do with that?
Well, friends, you’ve come to the right place. Resist the urge to toss that egg white in the trash, because here in this post I’ve got 50 egg white recipes to make good use of every last one of them. From crisping up your sweet potato fries and frothing a cocktail to pillowy marshmallow frosting and protein-packed breakfast casseroles, those egg whites are destined for something far greater than the nearest garbage disposal. So grab another cookie, refill your cup of milk, and take some time to pick out what your next scrumptious creation will be.

thank you for so many amazing egg white recipes!!! and so wonderfully presented by number of egg whites, love it!
I’m so glad it was helpful! I hope you found plenty of egg white recipe inspiration. 🙂
Hi. Do you have gluten free recipes?
Thanks so much for breaking these out by the number of egg whites needed. SO helpful and I see lots of tasty recipes in my future, too!
This is awesome! I was just going over a Lemon Icebox recipe and it called for 8 eggs yolks. I was wondering what I was going to do with all those leftover egg whites. I thought of Macaroons but I didn’t want to make a double batch. Now I think I will also try the Skinny Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole. It’s nice to have a variety of sweet and savory things to do with your egg whites (and yolks). I love desserts but I don’t want them in the house all the time. Well, I do, but I shouldn’t. Thank you so much for this.
I know exactly what you mean about having too many desserts around! The Skinny Breakfast Casserole should be a great way to balance everything out. 🙂 I’m glad the post was helpful for you!
THANK YOU! I’m in serious need of this egg white round up. I always have leftovers and they also start moulding before I ever use them (for shame).
You can freeze egg whites and they can last for months! You can just pop them into the fridge to thaw when you’re ready to use them.
Thanks for a great roundup! I always have egg whites in the fridge because I store them for macarons. Perhaps just once in a while I should take one of these ideas and use it for something else!
Now I’m going to have a problem with too many YOLKS because i’m going to steal all the whites to make these!
This is such a fabulous round up Courtney! Seriously, how often does this happen?? I love how you divided it up by number of egg whites. I’m totally coming back to this!
