I did some research I got eggs .86 a dozen and potatoes 1.11 5lbs I stocked up on chicken at .39lb. I got 60lbs of tatoes and 12 dozen eggs all to be frozen. Breakfast/dinners cost me 200.00 for a month. My freezers are now full.

How do you freeze eggs?

Eggs will freeze very well if you do it right.

1) You should not freeze them in the shell, because they will not stay fresh & they will get gross. 

2) If you want to freeze them as whole eggs, you should beat them until just blended, either individually or in groups. If individually, pour each egg into an ice cube tray & cover tightly with saran, then freeze the eggs. Once frozen, they can be popped out & put into a freezer bag or other container, sealed well, dated & labeled. If you do a group (for recipes you use often, for example), be sure to note how many eggs, as well. 

3) For just whites, separate the eggs individually & very carefully, making sure there is no yolk mixed in with the white. Use an ice cube tray to freeze, as stated above, to freeze individual egg whites, etc. or freeze in groups as stated above, etc.

4) For just yolks, there are extra steps. Egg yolks will thicken or gel when frozen, so if you freeze them w/o prepping them properly, they'll get so thick that you won't be able to use them in recipes. To help slow down the gelling process, beat in 1/8 teaspoon salt per 1/4 cup of yolks for those that will be used in savory dishes or 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar (or corn syrup) per 1/4 cup of yolks for those to be used in sweet dishes. 4 yolks=1/4 cup. Be sure to label which is which when you put them in the freezer.

5) To thaw your eggs for use, leave them overnight in the refrigerator or you can run them under cool tap water. Use them as soon as they are defrosted, because they'll get yucky pretty quickly.

6) To use your previously frozen eggs, use 2 tablespoons thawed egg yolk for 1 large fresh egg or 3 tablespoons thawed whole eggs for 1 large fresh egg.

I hope you cooked those potatoes first or they'll turn grey or black.
