Egg yolks are used in some other non-Portuguese recipes, but the Portuguese recipes tend to use more egg yolk. Molotov (Pudim Molotov) is a very traditional Portuguese dessert, and a dish that you'll find on a lot of menus. Like many Portuguese sweets, it's likely that originated as a way to use up excess egg whites. Portugal's national dish, bacalhau, is probably the most traditional option for Christmas dinner, although octopus is also common in the North of Portugal and in the Algarve. For this version, milk is infused with smoky, strong flavored tea, such as Lapsang souchong, and is then added to the eggs and sugar to make an unusual, elegant dessert.
