    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.

    [SIZE=3][FONT=inherit][SIZE=4][B][COLOR=inherit][B][SIZE=3][FONT=inherit]Egg Yolks[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][/COLOR][/B]

    [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.
    [B][B]One cube is the equivalent of two egg yolks.[/B][/B]

    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.
