Freezing Eggs may be something you hadn’t considered until you are faced with a container you haven’t used and the expiration date is coming up. Don’t worry, we are going to show you all the ways you can freeze eggs.

Can You Freeze Eggs?

Yes, absolutely. If you’ve got questions about freezing eggs you’ve come to the right place. Below is a list of every method you can use.

What Are the Benefits of Freezing Eggs?

Cost. This is a great way to load up on eggs when they are on sale, or even marked because they are expiring soon.  When you see a good sale, snatch up a few cartons and freeze for later! Doing this can save you some cash.

Supply. You’ll never have to worry about running out of eggs when you are stocked up. I’m sure you’ve also experienced that moment when you’re in the middle of baking and you don’t have enough eggs.

Time. Save yourself time by having eggs already prepared. This is great for when you are on the go and want ready to go.

Storing. Cartons of eggs can take up a lot of space in the fridge. Freezing some of them open up some room the fridge, and will save you some space!

How To Freeze Eggs

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.

The Best Method for Freezing Eggs

Lightly whisk the eggs. Stir with a fork (or small whisk) lightly until the yolk and whites are blended together.

Add salt. Egg yolks will thicken when frozen and a bit of salt will keep this from happening.

  • Simply add in 1 teaspoon of salt per 1 cup of eggs.

Storing. Cover and freeze in a muffin tin until frozen (about 4 hours), and then transfer the frozen egg cups to freezer bags. The frozen eggs will stay good for up to 1 year.

Labeling. Add the date to the label of the storage bag.

Scrambled Eggs

  • 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.

Deviled Eggs

  • 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.

Raw Eggs

  • 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.
Separating eggs

Egg Whites

  • 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.

  1. Hi, I’m assuming when you were talking about whisking the whites and yolks together and putting into muffin tins, they were scrambled eggs? i.e. cooked?
