Freezing Eggs – How To
My favorite way of freezing eggs is scrambled because it makes quick breakfast for the kids on school mornings! You can make a huge batch and be all set for breakfast for weeks.
Cook your eggs as usual, then allow them to cool completely. Place them in individual portions in freezer-safe bags and freeze. Write the date of freezing on the outside. When you’re ready to eat them, let them thaw out in the fridge and reheat them slowly in the microwave.
With deviled eggs, you should only freeze the yolk portion because the whites will become rubbery in the freezer. Store the egg yolk mixture in freezer-safe bags just like scrambled eggs. Let them thaw out in the fridge as well.
For raw eggs, you cannot freeze them in the shells, they will shatter. Separate the egg yolk from the white and store them also in a freezer bag. Thaw them out in the fridge.
The best way to freeze egg whites is to crack open each one and separate the white into an ice cube tray. When they are frozen completely, take them out and transfer them into a freezer bag.
