How to Freeze Eggs

It’s that time of year around here! Our egg basket is overflowing and I have eggs all over the place. After eating as many as we can, selling and gifting eggs, I still have an abundance! I have read a multitude of articles on the pros and cons of freezing eggs. And, honestly, it didn’t really appeal to me. But, I decided to try it and let you know what our family thought.

What You Will Need

  • Muffin pan or ice cube tray
  • Eggs
  • Salt

When putting my eggs in something to freeze, I used a silicone ice cube tray so the eggs would pop out more easily. Then, I decided to do a little experiment and scramble half and leave the other half whole. I forgot to add the salt which is supposed to help with the texture of the yolk, but it turned out okay.

Freeze overnight then pop the egg cubes out and place in a freezer bag for easy storage! Frozen eggs can remain in the freezer for up to 1 year.

The moment of truth! I was a little nervous plopping frozen egg cubes in a hot pan. The top right are the whole eggs and the bottom left are scrambled. I assumed the eggs would be a bit watery, but….they turned out AMAZING!

Seriously! They were so good!

I then decided I’d let the frozen egg cubes thaw in the fridge overnight to see how they’d cook up in the morning. And, much to my delight, they cooked up perfectly, too. The yolk on the whole egg was a little hard, but when I cooked it, it turned soft again.

All in all, I’m glad I tried this little experiment! I will definitely be freeing up some space on our kitchen counters and freezing some of our delicious eggs!

For a little more detail on the how-to, I found this blog post to be super helpful!

Happy freezing!
