Ways to Use Up Extra Eggs

     If you are like me, during the summer time, I have a refrigerator full of eggs with our chickens laying way more than we can eat!  We eat eggs for breakfast every morning and I use a bunch in recipes but it can be hard to figure out what to do with the excess.  In this blog post I am going to show you the ways I like to use up my extra eggs!

     One of the things I do is freeze eggs for times when the chickens are not laying as much, like in the winter time or when they are molting.   Freezing a bunch of eggs is the first thing I do every spring. This makes sure I have plenty of eggs later on.  I freeze individual eggs and "scrambled eggs".  This ensures I have a decent supply in the freezer to last me all year.  Since I started doing this, I have not had to buy any eggs, even around the holidays.  It's really great knowing that I have a "stash" to fall back on.  

    I have even been known to freeze hard boiled yolks so if I want to add in some hard boiled eggs to tuna salad or chicken salad, I have them to throw in there too.  You just have to let them thaw first.  I have tried freezing whole hard boiled eggs and that was NOT successful.  The whites are not good this way and taste yucky but the yolks can be frozen and remain yummy so that is why I just freeze the yolks now.

      Eggs are a great source of vitamins and minerals, not only for humans but for animals too so that is why we feed scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs to our dogs and to our chickens.  Our dogs really love them and their coats are softer and their skin is not as dry and itchy when they eat eggs fresh from our farm!

     And it may seem silly to feed the eggs to the chickens but they are really good for them and they seem to lay more and have less issues when we feed the cooked eggs to them.  We often add in some fresh herbs when we scramble the eggs and that just really boost the chickens' health even more.  Remember, a happy chicken is a laying chicken.

   A very obvious way to use up some extra eggs is to sell them but I just prefer to skip this one personally because where we live, it just isn't feasible because you can only sell them for next to nothing so it isn't worth it to us.  I do love to give them to family and friends.  My mother-in-law loves it when we bring her farm fresh eggs.  She knows how much better they taste then the ones you can buy at the store.

     Like I mentioned earlier, I do use eggs in a lot of recipes.  Some of the recipes I use extra eggs n include:  mini frattatas, our easy breakfast sandwich, and our french toast casserole.   What are some ways you like to use up your extra eggs?

  1. I never have heard of freezing eggs. I usually don't have many extra eggs because I feed 4 households from our chickens.
