Can you really freeze eggs?

I have a fridge full of eggs from between my WIC and Angel food stuff. Someone told me you could freeze them. Does that sound right to you?

  • Yes, but you cannot freeze them in the shell. The shell expands, cracks and allows bateria into the egg as it thaws.

    Crack the eggs into a freezer-safe container or bag instead. (I think if the pockets are the right size, you could crack them into an ice cube tray and then cover it with plastic wrap. Then when you need an egg, just pop one free. (just don't toss one in your drink.... ewww)

    Whenever I make a recipe that calls for only the whites or yolks of the egg, I freeze the other portion to use later.

  • i used to freeze eggs in the shells all the time when we had chickens. they don't fry well after freezing because the yolk sac breaks open. i used these previously frozen eggs for baking. just let them thaw on the counter in a bowl and remove the shells. sometimes the shells crack and sometimes they don't.
