Can anyone recommend a way to use up about 4 dozen eggs? They were given to me, couldn't pass them up. Not farm fresh or organic or anything. My fiance hates hard-boiled eggs so I could do some but that won't do for the lot. Am I just looking at a whole lotta quiches in my future?

I like egg drop soup, although I've never tried to freeze it. Maybe someone else could speak to that??

Also, mayonnaise & hollandaise sauces use up yolks, and the whites freeze fine (or can be used in some biscuit recipes, eg: zimmtsterne)

*notices icon, facepalms* by "biscuit" I of course mean "cookie"

...although the kind of biscuit I'd call a scone can also have eggs in.

Brownie! Brownie takes HEAPS of eggs - my standard recipe uses 5 and tends to be inhaled.

Egg fried rice is tasty; so is tamago-yaki (I don't have links, sorry - I searched a bunch of recipes and made one up).

Omelette is another option.

Seconding egg fried rice here, especially if you really like stirfry dishes. Make that for a week and you'll get through at least a dozen of them, I'd think. (... at the rate I eat, anyways)

Custard! (Crème brûlée, maybe or crème caramel or pastry cream.) And then make an angel food cake with the whites or freeze them.

Lemon meringue pie uses a decent number of eggs too, and lets you use up both yolks and whites.

And frittata is good if you get tired of quiche.

Or frittatas, which are a great way to get your veggies--try a skillet full of sauteed or steamed veggies with six to eight eggs poured in and cooked until set, then topped with cheese and popped under the broiler for a few minutes? Or egg muffins? Meringue cookies? Divinity? Flourless chocolate cake?

I have a basic frittata formula here.

If you can do a basic omelette, it can be filled with all sorts of things (an omelette filled with pre-cooked broccoli and grated parmesan is one of my favourite quick meals).

My favorite frittata is very similar to yours: sauteed onion and green pepper in low-cal balsamic dressing (lots of flavor in that), add small-cut fresh or frozen veggies (I like frozen, julienned "Parisian" blend) and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis (drained), 10 oz of frozen chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed), and six slices of thin-cut, pre-cooked bacon (crumbled). Simmer/steam until tender and liquid is mostly gone, then pour in six beaten eggs and cook on low, covered, for about 5-10 min, until set. Top with shredded cheese and broil, uncovered, until cheese starts to bubble and brown. Slice into wedges and try not to eat it all in one day. Salsa goes great on top when serving. Yum!

There's a recipe here for Lemon Curd that uses 3 eggs (a lot of lemons too though!). I've not tried this recipe but don't have the recipe I have used at the moment.

You can freeze eggs! I have done it (and thawed and eaten them afterwards, being the more important part).

The yolks have to be beaten, not whole, though, so either separate them into whites or beaten yolks, or you can just beat whole eggs together and freeze them in recipe-useful increments (like, most cookie recipes use two, a quiche would use four or six). The texture is a little funny when they're thawed, but I found them to be fine for baking or cooking with -- I wouldn't try making an omelette with them, but *in* something they should be fine.

1) Mayonnaise.
2) Quiche freezes pretty well, especially with heavy cheese.
3) Egg, fluffed with milk while cooking, dehydrates pretty well.
4) Egg breads.

Dutch Baby Pancakes

4 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour. Whisk eggs & flour together, then add milk. Pour into large skillet/pie plate (that's been heating in the oven, with 2-3 tablespoons of butter melting in it).
Bake at 375 for approx. 25-30 minutes.

This is one of my FAVORITE breakfast things.

I second making egg bread or cake - I found a nice challah recipe that calls for 4 eggs, and freezes well. Brioche would use quite a few, as well.

A nice variation on the omelet idea is to make mini-omelets in a muffin tin - you can use the eggs + whatever veggies (or cheese or bacon) you like. You can also press hash browns (shredded potato) in the bottom of the muffin cups and bake for 15 min or so before adding the eggs/veggies.

Either way, preheat the oven to 350F. Once the eggs are added, it takes about 15-20 minutes to cook. I use about 8 eggs divided between 12 muffin cups - more means overfilled & a mess. I've managed one egg per cup when there were minimal fillings.

Pop them in the refrigerator (they keep for 4-5 days) or the freezer, for longer storage. Can be eaten cold, or warmed up in the microwave for a quick breakfast (works great on an english muffin or bagel).

Make omelettes. The kind with more than 3 ingredients in. I've always found that and scrambled egg to be very good at reducing the amount of eggs available at home - one omelette in that style can use at least 3 eggs each time.

Bake something, or use the eggs to make batter. Or desserts.

I like to make egg salad, or deviled eggs. They're delicious, and I use a whole dozen for each dish.
