What to do with egg yolks? Roasted pineapple with mint whipped cream on a sablé breton

pineapple ananas patisserie homemade fait maison facile jaune oeufs sable breton recetteI talked about it in the past, I am team “egg whites”. Often, I use to have a lot of lonely egg yolks living in my fridge for so long that, by the time I had decided what I wanted to bake with it, they had gone wrong and finished their lives in the garbage bag. But this is the past. 🙂

So, with egg yolks you can bake hélénettes (recipe here) or the soooo French sablé breton. And you can top it with roasted pineapple and some mint whipped cream. And it will be awesome!

  1. Je surconfirme les hélènettes !! Et je rajoute le sabayon 🙂 (je dirais même que marié à une Pêche Colombine, c’est divin :p )
    Mais l’ananas rôti ça a l’air d’être quelque chose !! Je testerai sûrement (la prochaine fois que j’aurai des jaunes à utiliser !) mais sans menthe dans la chantilly (je déteste ça, ça me fait penser à du dentifrice).
    Merci pour cette belle découverte 🙂
