I am searching for a french buttercream recipe. The one that uses either whole eggs or egg yolks.
I have seen this as a way to use up egg yolks, but I cant seem to find the recipe for it
This link has an overview of buttercreams and recipes, including an egg yolk based French buttercream:

Mousseline (Cooked) Buttercream
(Uses whole eggs or egg yolks only.)
When I make it, I make it the same way as SMBC ('cept I cook it to quite a bit higher temp(despite what some may say about them turning to scrambled eggs...it won't happen if you gradually bring them up to temp and stir them CONSTANTLY with the sugar) than with SMBC). I add a pinch or less of salt with the sugar and yolks before heating begins.
