Searching for ways to use leftover egg whites? As a chef, this happens to me all the time if I am prepping for a gig or doing recipe development for Rosanna ETC and so I thought it would be handy to do a round of recipes for egg whites.
These recipes for leftover egg whites are a mixture of sweet, savoury and cocktail recipes and I hope you find something that works for you. Whether it's a starter, an aperitif or a sweet snack, there are lots of ways to use leftover egg whites and they don't need to go to waste!
Remember that egg whites freeze really well, so even if you don't have time to make something right away, you can freeze egg whites for up to a month and use them when it suits you. Frozen egg whites also make the best meringue, so it's actually advantageous to do this rather than using fresh egg whites.
