Frozen eggs still good?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My daughter left yesterdays eggs outside by accident all night, and it was well below freezing.  Are they still good to use?

Yes.  They may leak as they thaw. Freezing usually cracks the shell. You would want to use them in a recipe. They wont be the same for fried and scrambled eggs. Freezing changes the texture and they would be rubbery.
