July 19, 2010 4:03pm CST
My sister in law's boyfriend has a dairy farm and now they have chickens also. Hubby went there yesterday and he brought back 2 dozen eggs !!!! I do bake cakes sometimes but not now as its way too hot so I try to not use the oven. Im allergic to eggs but can still have them in cakes, etc. So I already had a dozen eggs in the fridge, now Im stuck with 3 dozens for 1 person. Can you boil eggs and freeze them? What can I possibly do that doesnt involve using the oven and could be kept in the freezer?

If I was given 2 dozen of eggs, I will make it as a desert we call "leche flan" , it uses 4 eggs in every can of evaporated milk, with some amount of sugar it can serve from 2 to 4 person. It is a great desert and you can put it in the refrigerator and it can last for 5 to 7 days.

What about Tres Leches? I just thought about that. It translates to Three Milk Cake (I think) to those who arent' sure what I mean.

Hi, If I had two dozen eggs I be very happy, because I had only one dozen, but If we are talk seriously I do not know If It would be good to freeze them. With eggs you can make money things, but also to make them you need a oven. If you change your thoughts and you will use oven you can cook pie, cakes, biscuits, cookies, omelet, fried eggs etc. Maybe you can find some information in the internet how to freeze eggs? Also raw egg shells you can give to chickens like food It would help to make bigger and more quantity eggs. I hope that you will cope with eggs. Take care, Have a nice day!

Yes if it wasnt so hot here, I could use the oven and bake cakes or cupcakes then freeze them. I guess I'll have to try that also. Id hate to throw away 3 dozen eggs. OR I might give some away. Thank you!

Hi, MagicaBubbles. I have never boiled eggs and then to have them frozen. The only thing that I can suggest to you to do is, make an egg salad with it. You can also, make scrambled egg sandwiches too. It is very delicious. Below is a egg site that gives many recipes for eggs. Enjoy! http://www.ichef.com/recipe.cfm/category/Egg%20Recipes/task/categorysearch/recipecategoryid/49

Oh my, more food than you can shake a stick at. Sorry, old farming saying. Any way: 3 eggs, 2 Tbsp milk, 3 slices bread. dash of cinnamon sugar. Beat the eggs and milk well. Dip the bread in the egg mixture and fry. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and hold in 275 degree oven till he wants to eat. You get cereal. Two breakfasts for one week gets rid of 6. To save an egg my grandma used to add an egg to hash browns and stir, then fry them. I have lots of farmers in my family. I know that eggs last up to 2 months in your fridge if they're range eggs. The ones you got from them are. I know this because they didn't come from a chicken producing facility. They came from a farm. Use the ones you had in the first place first. If you bought them from a store especially. Microwave cake recipes exist. Here's one: I'd copy and paste one here but I can't till I hit 500. Good luck.

In our country, eggs are like no. 1 in the grocery list because it is the easiest to prepare. You can fry or boil it, it does not matter, everybody would love it. Kids and adults alike love eggs but in your case since you are allergic to it, I think it will save you if you just cook the eggs when necessary and not force yourself into getting rid of them quick. Your hubby can use them for a long time.

You can boil eggs and keep them in the refrigerator for a few days, but as for freezing them I am not sure. You could make egg salad? Deviled eggs maybe? Sorry I can't help anymore but those are the only things I can think of. If you can't do anything else with them give them to the neighbors!

Someone suggested freezing them, so Ive tried to freeze one last night and will have a look at it this evening. I'll try and cook it and hubby will let me know if its good or not. Yes I wont let them waste, dont worry, Im against letting food waste. I'll find someone to give it to before the end of the week if I havent found a solution. Thanks

egg omelet with cheese and hotdog bits or ham would be the best. you can also make some salted eggs "itlog maalat" (here in philippines). aside from food, you can use the egg membrane of boiled egg to make lenin papers (that was my mother's project when she was 12 years old). for inside plants in the living room, you can use egg white to make plant leaves shiny. for personal use, egg white works the same as oatmeal on your skin. you can apply it on your face.

Fresh eggs will store for 5 weeks in the refrigerator. If you are wanting to keep them longer than that then freeze them, you just need to beat until they are just blended, pour into freezer containers. seal tightly, label with the number of eggs and the date, and freeze - they will keep for 1 year like this!

I tried that last night, but I didnt beat the egg. I havent had time to have a look yet to see if it worked. I'll try another one and beat it this time before freezing it. I know eggs can keep for a while but Im not comfy keeping them that long ......remember only my hubby eating eggs. Thank you!!

Make a egg sandwich spread for the 1st dozen then donate the other 2 dozen in the charity. Children would be happy eating eggs. ;)

I´m very sorry that you are allergic to eggs as I could not live without them.. I make sauces, omelettes, puddings (sweet and salt. I eat them raw, cooked, fried, scrambled, baked. Eggs keep well in the fridge (not freezer) for a long time. You can safely have them there for over a month if the shell is not broken. Don´t wash them. Happy posting!

Egg salad is good. I like scrambled eggs. I like them pickled, and I also like to fry them and make egg sandwiches...cakes, brownies, and other desserts are also good ways to use up a few eggs...

Make an egg sandwich spread. It will last for a long time if kept in the fridge. Joist boil it , put mayo and and whatever you desire.

Yes I know how to make egg sandwiches. Thing is, its going to make a LOT of egg sandwiches for one person only. Someone said pickled eggs but I just asked hubby and he doesnt like that. I'll probably end up giving some away. Thank you!!

I would hard boil at least a dozen then make salads, like potato salad or egg salad, or deviled eggs for hubby. You may want to look up pickled eggs. My experience is that the whites of hard boiled eggs get rubbery in the freezer. You could make pancakes, and put eggs in them whether it calls for them or not, I always do. How about a cooked custard, on top of the stove. Can you eat those?

Pancakes sounds like a good idea, same for cooked custard.....I could have a tiny bit and see if I can eat it. Pickled eggs sounds great. I'll have to ask hubby if he likes those. Thank you very much!!

Do you have any events you could go to that you can bring food to? If so, I suggest deviled eggs and egg salad.

I wish, but no. And no birthdays coming around soon. I could have my dad over with my 2 aunts but they dont eat eggs either. Nearly everybody in my family is allergic to eggs like me. So its hubby only eating the eggs and I sure dont want him to eat them everyday. Thanks for the suggestion anyways!!
