Too many eggs!

Somehow I've ended up with 2 dozen eggs on their best before date. Short of feeding everyone scrambled eggs all weekend, any suggestions how not to let them go to waste?

Frittata? Custard. Meringue. Cake (obvs).

Wish I had too many, my hens haven't laid for a week or so and having made a frittata to use up eggs last weekend we used our last one yesterday.

When I've got a glut I make a big frittata, slices potatoes par boiled, plus whatever I have to throw in it - we like sausage, leeks, peppers all cut up and fried off. Whisk the eggs and layer it all then bake for about 40 mins.

Mmm, nice ideas. That's one dozen accounted for!

And I've got some leftover boiled potatoes - they're lovely in frittata.

They will be fine for quite a while over their date. Just stick them in water to check - off eggs float.

They really do last for ages! Do the egg float test as someone said. I did this just this morning with some eggs that said their sell by date was Feb 1st and they all sank. I made a cake with them and it's come out perfectly.

Ideas aside - savoury crepes for dinner always go down well here. And a few for dessert too! Also carbonara, egg fried rice, fry up for breakfast, then obviously every egg combo on toast/with avocado

Baking wise- macarons/meringues need several egg whites, obviously any cake/loaf/brownie recipe needs them too.

Use four of them in this Yorkshire pudding recipe and freeze them
Three eggs in carbonara
You can also use four in this really easy recipe for ice cream and it will keep for months
Use a couple in a moussaka topping and freeze

Depending how many of you there are you can use half a dozen in French toast for breakfast on Sunday.

Yorkshire puds with your sunday roast?

Spanish omelette

Pancakes for breakfast, cake (one for now, one for the freeezer), frittata for lunch, yorkshires with tea.

But they will almost certainly be fine for a week or two (or maybe a month). Just crack each one separately into a bowl before adding to the rest if the ingredients if you are unsure.

Quiche? Hard-boiled eggs to eat during the week, or as egg mayo?

French toast and instead of making dinner one of the days do scrambled eggs, bacon and tomatoes.

I used up 6 eggs in a rich chocolate cake this evening. Only made one, as there's no space in the freezer.
