Discard milk solids?

bacon | May 6, 2009 01:46 AM

Most instructions for clarified butter recommend discarding the milk solids.

I hate waste. Butter is expensive and the milk solids do contribute to flavour; so I occasionaly add them back into an already emulsified hollandaise.

Is there any other use for them?

I have done a brief internet search and so far they only get mentioned when people are throwing them away.

Are they worth saving or am I being overly thrifty?
