How To Freeze Eggs – An Easy Way To Save Money

With eggs so cheap this week, it’s a great time to do a quick how to on freezing eggs. For the longest time, I would freeze just the egg whites, I had no idea you could freeze all of the egg. You can’t freeze a “whole” egg, meaning stick the entire egg, shell and all in the freezer. (OK, well you could do that, but it won’t work 🙂 ).

Freezing eggs when they are cheap, not only saves you money (just a few months ago a carton of eggs were $3-$4! – now you can get them for $0.50 at Target), but you are also always have eggs on hand for baking etc. Basically, all you need to do is break the eggs into a measuring cup and then mix them up.

Here’s how you do it.
Crack the eggs into a mixing cup (the number of eggs doesn’t matter, do as many as you wish).

  • Gently mix them up. Try not to get any air mixed in.
  • Then pour the liquid into an ice cube tray (leave a little room of the top of each spot, because the eggs will expand when they freeze).
  • If this is the first time you are doing this.. make a note of the number of eggs you cracked divided by the number of spots in the ice cube tray filled. This will tell you how many “Cubes” equals 1 full egg. So for example if I did 4 eggs and filled 8 spots. 2 cubes equals 1 egg.
  • Freeze the egg / ice cube tray.
  • Once frozen, empty them out of the tray and store in a freezer container / bag. Make a note on the container how many cubes equals 1 eggs.

These eggs will keep a very long time, if you freeze enough, they should freeze long enough to get you through any price fluctuations. When eggs are $4.. I was soooo happy I had frozen a ton of eggs beforehand. I saved considerably.

Some people are weary of freezing the eggs because they do change in the consistency when they thaw. But for baking, french toast dipping, meatloaf, and even just scrambled eggs, they come out fine. Plus at $0.50 a dozen right now, it’s worth trying 🙂 You won’t regret it.
