ooooh - great thread - I also have an egg glut and will watch with interest

we do flan, but get flan glut instead.
6 eggs + 1 liter of milk + 120g sugar + vanilla essence
makes 10 to 12 individual pots...

Arrgghhhh, kids are not keen on flan- sorry Mimile(and thanks)

There must be lots of recipes with loads of eggs, we are getting 6 or 7 a day and even I who loves eggs cannot eat that many!!!

Please please help, give me some ideas how I can use these to feed my lovely 4dcs

similar situation here! 11 a day. selling at farm gate but also making loads of sponge cakes (!) and will be attempting lemon curd.

I bought a wonderful book called 'hens in the garden, eggs in the kitchen' and the recipes at the bag use oodles of eggs and many are child friendly recipes too.
there really are only so many egg sandwiches that you can eat aren't there ?!

I've just used 8 eggs in a fritatta! Would that help at all?

Homemade scotch eggs? Very lovely.

Meringue? With or without lemon.
