    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.

    I just LOVE the search feature on BYC! I had the exact question about frozen eggs and if they are any good!

    I'm off to find something to bake!
