With Easter quickly approaching, we will be seeing tons of sales on eggs. Most years I may buy a few extra than normal, knowing the kids wanted to decorate some, and thinking I would try to make a couple more egg dishes over the next couple weeks. But now that I have discovered that you can freeze your eggs, I’m stocking up! Who ever thought you could have an egg stockpile? So find out how to freeze eggs by following the steps below.
What you Need:
–Ice cube tray
What you Do:
–In a mixing bowl, mix together the yolk and whites of the eggs.
–This next step you will need to think ahead to what you will most likely be using the eggs for. If you are unsure maybe do a little of each. In this step you need to add just a little bit of salt or sugar, depending on what you will be using them for. Add sugar if you plan to use in your baking and add salt for everything else.
UPDATE: mix in 1/8 teaspoon salt or 1½ teaspoons sugar per every four yolks to keep the yolks from turning to gel. If you are mixing the yolk and whites together you can skip this step.
–Pour mixture into an ice cube tray and put into the freezer.
Once the eggs are frozen you should pop them out of the tray and store them in a freezer bag or an air tight container. Be sure to label so you know to which you added salt and to which you added sugar.
Two “cubes” will equal about one medium egg and three will equal about one large egg. If you want to be more accurate you can always mix each egg individually and freeze one egg per “cube”.
Obviously these eggs will not be useful when making a sunny side up egg, but they can be used to make scrambled eggs and just about any recipe that calls for eggs. Instead of going for the fridge, just go for the freezer.
