How to Freeze Eggs
The other day I highlighted my Sprouts shopping trip and mentioned that I was able to score a great clearance deal on organic eggs. I picked up all three cartons that were marked down. Finding a deal on eggs is pretty hard– but organic eggs? I needed them! 🙂
I wanted to show you how I freeze them and make them last longer. My eggs were about to expire so I went to freezing them right away! It is pretty simple.
What you need:
- Ice Cube Trays
- Salt or Honey
1. Crack eggs into a bowl and scramble. I usually crack about 2-3 at a time
2. Depending on what you plan on doing with the eggs in the future–you will need to decide if they will be for a savory or sweet dish. If you plan on using them for sweet dishes add 1/2 teaspoon of honey per egg. If you plan on using them for a savory dish–add 1/2 teaspoon of salt per egg. Adding these to your eggs will prevent a graininess after the egg is defrosted.
3. Add the eggs to your ice cub trays and put in the freezer
4. Once frozen, take the eggs out of the trays and put them in a ziploc bag (make sure you squeeze the air out to prevent freezer burn) Tip: If you have a hard time taking the eggs out of the tray, turn the tray over and run under hot water for 5 seconds.
5. Be sure to mark your bag with the date and what ingredient you mixed in with your egg
6. When you are ready to to eat– take out the desired amount and let them defrost before you enjoy!
