    I was searching the archives but didn't run across what I am looking for.

    So I am boiling eggs, some will go in some different salads but most I will leave whole. Can these be frozen and then unthawed easily and eaten?

    Also the ones I have mashed up, can I freeze any that is left that I don't use in salads this week??

    If you freeze cooked eggs, they get really rubbery.
    I tried freezing something that I had diced boiled egg in and it was horrible. I ended up throwing it away.
    If you want to try it, pop one in the freezer right now, then defrost it tomorrow and see what you think.

    I read on here that you can crack a raw egg into a baggie and freeze it to use in recipes later.

    Thanks, I can just hope that these get eaten in the next few days or our girls will get to eat them. LOL

    I use this method.....

    Whole Eggs

    Mix the yolks and egg whites together. Then, pour the egg mixture into an ice cube tray, and freeze.

    [FONT=inherit]To prevent thickening, stir in half a teaspoon of salt (or one and a half tablespoons of sugar, if the eggs will be used in desserts) for every one cup of yolks. Then, pour into an ice cube tray and freeze.

    No special prep is required. Just pour the whites into an ice cube tray, and freeze.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    I have cracked a eggs in a muffin tin, baked them so I have twelve perfect sunny side eggs. I then put them in english muffins with a slice of cheese. I have frozen those, and then cooked them in the microwave for breakfast. They have come out as perfect Egg McMuffins!

    Brilliant Cubbysan. I make the egg McMuffins and never thought to put them in my muffin tin. They will be prettier. I don't find a problem with the texture but they weren't boiled.
