Our hens are egg laying machines. We have a few hens that will even lay twice a day. They are just really happy girls and love to lay eggs for us every single day and we really do not have that many hens. Anyway, we always have an abundance of farm fresh eggs. We give some away, we sell some, we pickle some and we eat a lot but we still pretty much have eggs coming out of our ears! What to do, what to do? Freeze them, that's what!
How to Freeze Eggs
Freezing eggs is really quite easy. What we do is take 10 farm, fresh eggs and crack them all into a bowl. Next, whisk them up really good or use a fork to mix them up like you would do if you were making scrambled eggs.
The eggs all mixed up.
Once they are whipped up good, pour them into a quart sized baggie. Try to get all the air out of the bag and label it.
10 eggs in the baggie ready to go into the freezer.
We did 4 packages this way for a total of 40 eggs in 4 bags. We laid the 4 bags flat in a large cake pan and put them into the freezer. The next day, after they are all frozen completely, you can remove the cake pan and just put the baggies back into your freezer.
To defrost a bag, we just put it the refrigerator overnight. To use, we generally just scramble up the whole bag but if you just want to use a few eggs at a time, 3 T. of mixed egg equal to 1 egg. It is great to take on camping trips. Once defrosted, use the eggs within 2-3 days.
