Tuesday Tip - Eggs

Welcome to another Tuesday Tips!

I have a lot of eggs in my fridge right now. My mom has been buying them fresh from a neighbor. When she asked me if I would like to take a few home this weekend, I said sure. I was a little surprised when she brought me 18! Whoa, that's a lot of eggs. My kids have been in a non-egg mood lately, and I don't get up early enough to fix some for Mark's breakfast (althought I should try harder). So what am I going to do with all these eggs? 
Devil them of course! I love deviled eggs! Plus these pregnancy hormones make me feel like I need to constantly eat, but I don't always feel like cooking. So I decided I'm going to make a large batch of deviled eggs to eat as I need (and probably send some to work with Mark).

While I was looking around at what to do with these eggs though, I came across this great article.  Did you know you can freeze eggs? Oh yeah! You just can't freeze them in the shell. So if you want to freeze the whole egg, beat them up until well blended, and seal in an airtight container. If you just want the egg whites, do the same thing, just without the yolks. However, if you just want the yolks (I'm not sure what you would for, but you never know) you need to add a little sugar or salt. It doesn't matter, except for what you plan on making with them.

Now you can buy your eggs in bulk and not worry about them going bad!! Because we all hate finding bad eggs.


  1. 18 eggs? hahaha, when I buy eggs I buy at least 4 dozen at a time. Sometimes more. And, that doesn't even last us an entire week. We go through lots of eggs. And, eggs will last a long time in the fridge, at least 4 weeks after the date on the package. :)

  2. Well, you just reminded me that I need to get more. I am almost out!
