We like to buy our organic eggs from Costco. They come in a two dozen pack and cost us less per egg than shopping at a store like Kroger. The only downfalls about buying eggs from Costco is that they come in a plastic package and sometimes it seems as though two dozen eggs is just a little excessive. I’ve had to come up with some creative ways to use up eggs every once in awhile, and I thought I’d share my tips with you!
-Scramble an egg in a bowl. Before you wash your hair, spread the egg over your hair evenly. It will help condition your hair and add shine. Wash with your normal shampoo as normal.
-Make egg salad sandwiches. Hard boil your eggs, chop them up into small pieces, and mix with mayonnaise, celery, onion, salt and pepper, and any other ingredients you’d like to add. You can eat it like that or spread it on bread to make the egg salad sandwiches.
-Hard boil eggs and eat them as a snack. Eggs contain omega 3 fatty acids that are good for your body, as well as protein. I love hard boiled eggs with salt. Yum!
-Separate the egg yolks and whites and freeze them. You can then thaw them and use them in baking recipes. I haven’t tried to make them into scrambled eggs, but you may want to give it a shot.
-From local pastured eggs, you can separate the egg yolk and whites and mix the egg yolk into smoothies. You can also stir egg yolks into soups and stews for a nutritional boost.
-Make omelets or frittatas for breakfast or even dinner. When we are lazy, we like cooking breakfast for dinner. It’s super easy and tastes great!
-Make deviled eggs. Deviled eggs are awesome, and there are never any leftovers!
-Custards or even angel food cake are a great way to use up eggs. Custard is going to use the yolks, and angel food cake will use the whites, so you may want to make them together!
-Scramble and cook eggs and feed them to your dogs. They will love them!
How do you use up eggs? Do you ever have too many?
