I absolutely hate any form of kitchen waste and if I can help you make use of leftover egg whites that you’d normally throw away, then I’m one happy blogger!

Whether you’re making homemade ice cream, Hollandaise sauce or choux pastry, there are loads of different ways you could end up with leftover egg whites. If you’re looking for ways to cut down on kitchen waste and use up those leftover egg whites, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some of my favourite recipes to make with egg whites:

  1. Meringues – crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside cookies made from egg whites and sugar.
  2. Angel Food Cake – naturally fat-free cake made with flour, sugar and egg whites.
  3. Chocolate Chip Protein Oatmeal Bake – healthy single-serving breakfast dish with oats, egg whites and chocolate chips.
  4. Salmon and Egg Sandwich – use the egg whites to make a scramble for a healthy sandwich.

  11. Chocolate and Berry Mousse Pots – thoroughly whipped egg whites make a wonderfully light and airy mousse.
  12. Raspberry-Coconut Macarons – are they a merginue or are they a cookie? It doesn’t matter, because either way – I’m having one!
  13. Cinnamon Sugar Candied Nuts – it’s the egg white that helps the delicious cinnamon sugar coating stick to the nuts!
  14. Egg White Frittata – combine your egg whites with some veggies to make a healthy breakfast or brunch.
  15. Coconut Macaroons – they’re nowhere near as popular as their similarly-named macaron friends, but macaroons are just as decadent. (And not nearly as difficult, yay!)
  16. Red Clover Cocktail – some cocktails, like this fabulous raspberry Red Clover, use beaten egg whites for thickening.
  17. Blackberry Financiers – they sound a bit like something you’d find at the stock market, but they’re not – they’re adorable little light-as-air almond cakes!
  18. Fish Pie with Souffle Crouton Topping – okay, so the egg white in this recipe is only one of many ingredients, but it’s still important!
  19. Chocolate Souffles – although they’re notoriously difficult to make, chocolate souffles are always worth the effort!
  20. Peanut Butter Waffles – I’ve never heard of using egg whites in waffles before, but I can’t wait to give it a try now I have!

  1. I’m also in a homemade ice cream phase right now, trying all types of variations. That’s funny I saw this link as I have an egg white in my fridge right now just waiting for me to do something with it! I usually cook them for breakfast or just give them to the dogs. But good to know what other things I can do with them. Thanks for sharing!!
