    Hi everyone! I have not been on in a while but I have a Question. Can anyone tell me if it is ok to eat an egg that has gotten frozen overnight?

    As long as the shell didn't crack open, it should be fine. The freezing temp of an egg is lower than water due to all the soluble proteins in it.

    Well my grandmother yelled at me for throwing away ones that were frozen . She's 91 yrs old and still living on her own . So guess my point is , if she's done it and still alive , go for it ![​IMG]

    I've used frozen eggs, my fridge temp was too cold and I froze the eggs and milk. [​IMG] They look funny going into the frying pan but were just fine otherwise.

    I had a few that froze, and after I thawed them, they were fine and still were100 times better than the store.
