what to do with egg whites

I made pumpkin custard for dessert tonight, and now I've got 8 egg whites to do something with. Other than pavlova and angel kisses, what can I do with that many egg whites? Can egg whites be successfully frozen? If they can, I'd just hang on to them until Christmas, and then use them for divinity, marshmallows and whatnot, but it's too early to get into holiday baking yet.

Any suggestions?

Pretty sure they can be frozen. I would just pop them into an ice tray to divide them up and then a zip lock bag after they are frozen.

Of course you can always keep one out and use it as a facial. Just apply it to your skin and let dry then gently wash off. It makes a great cleaning and tightening face mask.

You can freeze egg whites, yeah. The icecube tray suggestion isn't a bad one, but you can just put 1-2 in each ziploc bag.

I freeze them, I don't bother with the ice cube tray. I just get a freezer bag and add them, then add a tick mark for each egg I toss in. At about 8-10 I make an angel food cake. But the cube tray is great so you can pick out one or two at a time.

I freeze them in a plastic container. Defrost container in cold water like you would meat. I use them in omlettes for my husband who is dieting.

it says you need to make the custard too, but you can just buy a ready made one. Just male sure it thick enough.
I used whipped cream forsting (instead of custard) before as in, and it work quite nicely.
I also tried rolling it with swiss roll, and it work so well too.

Its just like making Swiss roll actually :) its a very nice sweet dessert.

We use a LOT of egg whites on omelettes at our house...my husband doesn't like the yolks, so we crack open like 6 eggs, he uses the whites, and then I cook up the remaining yolks for the dog, lol.

Could you possibly share the recipe for the pumpkin custard? I currently have 8 egg yolks sitting in my fridge (I made meringue cookies for Halloween) and I have no idea what to do with them.

Here you go: http://www.copykat.com/2011/11/06/cracker-barrel-pumpkin-custard-n-ginger-snaps/

Cracker Barrel serves theirs with caramel mousse instead of whipped cream (I've never had it, I've only seen the ads), but I made maple caramel pecan sauce to go with ours instead.
