How to Freeze Eggs
Freeze your eggs for later storage so you’ll have fresh eggs every day!
What you need:
- A container to freeze your eggs in (you can use a muffin tin, silicone baking cups, ice trays or plastic egg holders)
Step 1. Place eggs in container and freeze.
When placing eggs in a container, take note that once the eggs are frozen it is difficult to separate them. It;s best to determine ahead of time what you’re planning on using your eggs for in the future. For example, if you’re planning on using your eggs for baking goodies that require just the whites or just the yolks, then you’ll want to separate them before freezing.
Muffin tins and plastic egg holders are good containers if you want to freeze your eggs whole because the slots are big. However, removing the eggs can be quite difficult. My advice would be to use cooking spray before putting the eggs inside the slots.
Silicone cups are the easiest to use when freezing eggs. Just drop an egg per cup, no need to spray with cooking spray as the eggs won’t stick in the cups.
Ice cube trays are a lot smaller and therefore can’t be used to freeze whole eggs. You can use ice cube trays to freeze separated eggs.
Step 2. Remove frozen eggs from container and transfer to a freezer safe bag.
Don’t forget to label the bag or tray with the contents and the date. You can keep the eggs frozen up to a year!
