I have 12 dozen cartons of eggs.....what to make?

I acquired 12 1dozen cartons of eggs today for free & do not want them to go to waste. Any ideas? Recipes? I was thinking of making up a big batch of egg salad & freezing it, but don't know if it will freeze well & don't know a good recipe. So LMK.

Thanks, Amber

I think you can freeze eggs to be used later in baking - maybe crack them into ice cube trays and then you can put into a ziploc in the freezer knowing that one cube=one egg?

I'll have to think on other ideas.

when I was a kid my dad always bought eggs at the auction and he came home with over 30 dozen (family of 7). My mom scrambled most of them to freeze. then she would throw them in the skillet and we would have them for breakfast.

I bet you could hard boil and freeze also. Then when are ready make egg salad or tuna salad ect...

Re: I have 12 dozen cartons of eggs.....what to make?

You can freeze raw egg whites but raw yolks turn gooey. Cooked eggs get really rubbery when they're frozen, so that can be problematic too. But if you have the fridge space to store all those cartons, you can safely keep eggs in there for quite a while....like 4 to 6 weeks. I'd think that with your family of six, you guys could munch your way through 12 dozen fresh eggs in that amount of time pretty easily.

I love pickled eggs. Soak hard boiled eggs in white vinegar for a few days. Yum! Reminds me of my very English grandmother. LOL

Angelfood cake comes to mind - I think you need a dozen eggs per cake!

Good idea!

You can make cookie dough and freeze it for later. I know that isn't many eggs but it's something else to use them in for later.
