What to do with the egg whites?

I am a bit sensitive to eggs, and want to try "just yolks" to see if that helps any. My question is: what do I do with the whites? Good eggs are expensive where I am, and it seems uber wasteful to just toss em. I wish I had a roommate or family member (heck, even a pet) to pawn them off on.

Nice suggestions. The OP could give them away frozen or another family member could use them in smoothies etc.

Sorry, maybe I should edit my answer. I was just noting ways that the egg whites could be used up, but not by OP herself. As in, give them away, part one. Part two, if you don't know what should be done with them, suggestions can include adhesion.

The OP is unable to eat the egg whites, though.

I think MathGirl meant the "adhesion of crusts or seasoning" and about your suggestion for coating fries in beaten egg white, not your idea about giving a box of egg whites away. :) The boxed egg whites is a good idea. But since the OP can't eat egg, the coating/crusting with egg whites idea wouldn't work out for them. At least, I'm pretty sure this is what MathGirl was referring to.

Yes, but if she lives with someone/has someone to give them to, those are good uses to mention when handing someone a big bag of egg white.

If she has issues with egg protein, coating anything in them and then consuming them is a bad idea.

We do this with tri-tip (beef roasts), too! Cake them in salt and grill for 1-2 hours. I've heard it called Santa Maria style beef, but we just call it good!

You can also use it to make a mohawk.

I give mine (no joke) to a buddy that owns a gym. They freeze really well, so I just throw them in a big zip-lock bag, label it with the date, and next time I see him I give him the box. I hate HATE wasting food, and he think yolks taste gross, so it's win win!

You don't have to find someone who loves egg white omlettes either- alternatively, egg white are great to use for adhesion of crusts or seasoning. For sweet potato fries, I coat the cut up fries in beaten egg white and seasoning, they turn out deliciously crisp. I also use them to coat cuttle fish, octopus, and squid when I am shallow frying them in bacon fat with an almond/old bay crust. This way, if I don't have a gym buddy who needs them, other people can use them too!

Start freezing them now. Then start asking around your friends, neighbors, co-workers etc. I'm sure you can find some one who would love your egg whites, especially someone who thinks the cholesterol in the yolks is going to kill him and is eating egg white-only omelettes. Maybe you can get his yolks!!!

Anyway, I would sure take them if you lived in my city! I have one three-year-old who will only eat whites. His twin only eats yolks. Right now that's working out pretty well, but the yolk-only boy is branching out and starting to eat a few bites of whites with his yolk. Pretty soon, I'm going to need more whites or I'm going to have to start giving up mine!

You can make a salt crust with egg whites that encases a fish or roast, like this:

This technique is on my to-do list to try.

Always save them as they are pretty good protein even if only 6 or 7 grams an egg. They freeze just as is and an ice tray is perfect before getting them into a ziplock, and then into a smoothie. And nothing wrong witrh added one or two of the leftover whites into a morning omelet- it whips in unnoticed. Melt some dark chcoc, and whip the whites into Peaks- fold together with a single yolk and put into a small cup and bake for a great wheatless cake.
