How to Freeze Fresh Eggs

It’s either feast or famine when it comes to fresh eggs deals. Often times we are swimming with fresh egg deals and other times we are not seeing much. When we have an over abundance of eggs I like to Freeze Fresh Eggs.  There are a lot of different schools of thought when it comes to preserving eggs. This is just my method that I have used over the years.

It is super simple, doesn’t require a large amount of time and it works. Did you know that after freezing your fresh eggs they taste exactly the same as fresh eggs. There is no difference. So don’t feel afraid to freeze your eggs based on taste.

You can fry them, bake with them or add them to casseroles or other recipes even after they have been frozen and thawed.

I know… your mind is blown, right? Time to get yourself on this band wagon.

How To Freeze Fresh Eggs

Scrambling eggs to freeze them

1) Crack a small quantity of eggs in a bowl. I typically freeze in quantities of 2 to 3. Never freeze in shell. Like any liquid, it expands and could crack your shells. You can choose to separate your egg yolks from whites and freeze separately as well.

2) Scramble eggs lightly. Try not to get too much age in the mixture. I have found that with air bubbles in the mix, freezer burn occurs rather quickly.

Side note: When I first started researching how to freeze eggs. I read a few articles that stated to add salt and/or sugar to your egg mixture to prevent the egg yoke from becoming like gel. I have never tried this method and my eggs have always turned out good.

3) I then place my scrambled raw eggs in a freezer storage bag, labeled with the number of eggs and date. I like to use Hefty Slider Food Storage Bags quart bags.

4)  Freeze for up to 6 months (I’d bet you could go longer, but this is what the “experts” recommend. I don’t like to push the limits personally).  Labeling might seem like a waste of time to you. But do it. Trust me. You have no idea how many times I’ve come across a mystery item in my freezer.

Thawing Your Frozen Eggs

When you are ready to use your eggs, allow them to thaw in the fridge. I usually put them in the fridge over night that way by morning time they are ready to be used.

Really it is that simple…
