How To Freeze Fresh Eggs


Even though it might not sound like a difficult job, freezing fresh eggs has come to be somewhat of a skill. The first thing you need to know is why you can do this. Well, because having some eggs ready for an omelet or some french toast is always good. The second thing is that the eggs are not frozen whole! Meaning you will crack the eggs into an ice cube tray. Furthermore, you could separate the yolks from the whites, but that approach will lead you to more steps. So make sure you read the following link and find out all there is about how to freeze fresh eggs in just a few minutes.

You can freeze the eggs whole quite easily. For this, you’ll need this great silicone container available here…

    Why on God’s green earthball would somebody need to freeze eggs? Cook them, or put them in the fridge. Why do you need 30 frozen eggs sitting in an ice tray in your freezer, you weirdo?

    • Lori says:

      When you raise chickens and get over run with eggs and want to save them for the winter when they stop laying. Eggs in the coop freeze all the time in the winter if you use a lamp to keep them laying so it’s no different and they don’t go to waste. Much better than having to go to a grocery store.

        Can you use the eggs that freeze in the chicken house just like you can use the ones you freeze? Seems like an egg in its shell would be more healthy than one in plastic. City Girl

        • mena says:

          No, you cannot use the ones that freeze in the coop because the shell splits and lets any bacteria in the nesting box contaminate the egg. I boil those and feed them to the dogs, cats, and some to the chickens.

      • Lori says:

        It’s a great idea. When you have more eggs than you need in the summer/fall freezing your pasture raised eggs so you can have healthy eggs all winter is awesome. We love eggs and go through a lot of them. If you’re happy with buying store bought eggs from abused poultry then there is no need to freeze. You can just continue to buy from the grocery store.

    • joan says:

      P.Ledouche…….If you raised chickens and have eggs everyday, then this is a great way to store them.

    • Justina says:

      My old neighbor had a little ove 300 chickens he did this to preserve several of his eggs ..You know so they dont spoil and go to waste.

    • ellen says:

      Well, I’ll tell you why I do it. Because I’m allergic to soy and the proteins get into the yolks of eggs, so I buy soy free eggs. Now I live on an island and it’s an hour long boat ride to the mainland of California, where I trudge to Whole Foods and buy 4 dozen or more at a time. Sometimes, we can’t take the boat (weather, illness, etc.) and we run out. I love eggs so I keep at least one dozen in the freezer. Probably not a universal problem….but you asked.

    • Chase says:

      To the Douche Person… there are plenty of reasons why one would freeze eggs. Use your imagination.
      For one, a surplus of range free fresh hen/duck/emu eggs – freezing is the best method for mid term storage.
      When camping, frozen eggs are much more easily transportable.
      When camping, frozen eggs are much easier to handle, a lot less messy.
      Dogs love frozen egg ice cubes…

      No need to insult people and call the author a weirdo.

    • Mary says:

      A little disrespectful I think. Not everyone can run to the store when eggs are needed also if you raise chickens it is nice to freeze them when there is an overabundance, for the time when they molt and stop laying. Calling people names is wrong just because they have different opinions or do things differently than you.

    • Leigh says:

      I have chickens and in the winter I don’t have a lot of buyers. I can freeze the eggs and use them in my baking, or just for breakfast dishes.

    • Floki says:

      It is quite apparent that you did not read the article. They tell you in the very first paragraph.
      Read, learn, then comment.

    • Jennifer Grace says:

      Many chicken owners have certain times of the year with an abundance of eggs. And, there are those times of the year when our chickens molt and they don’t lay any eggs. Many people can their vegetables from the garden to have in the winter. What is the difference? How do you keep your eggs so that you can have them for the winter? If you have a better idea than freezing, please let me know.

      • Nell says:

        With an old proceed, in a jar put 8 L of water and 1 L of Na2SiO3
        You can keep 100 eggs for 1 year
        Sorry I don’t know some english word because I’m french
        We say « silicate de sodium » and L = litre
        Is it good for you?

    • linda van Esch says:

      I need to freeze eggs since I am allergic to chicken eggs but may eat duck eggs, which are seasonal.

    • Pas de douche says:

      Because in some places it gets really cold and chicken stop laying for a while?

    • Sandra Bechtold says:

      I see no reason to be rude! Especially when you are showing your own ignorance. When chickens molt (look it up), or get broody (look it up) they stop laying and you have no eggs. Why would you not want to have fresh eggs available, especially if you have a plethora (look it up) at other times.

  3. Lisa of Fresh Eggs Daily says:

    Thanks for sharing my post about freezing eggs! They come in handy for holiday baking since our chickens slow down in the winter and I hate buying store bought eggs!

  4. gloria hill says:

    Not everybody wants the running steroid eggs from the store. I raise chickens and in the winter you slow way down in egg production this is a good idea for prepping in case something bad happens too.

  5. Jean Lucik says:

    Fantastic idea. Now I also know what to do with left over egg whites when the recipe calls for “yolks only” When I go on holidays I won”t have to dispose of the eggs…..also extra yolks or egg whites when I need them. Never run out. THANK YOU FOR SHARING .

  6. Elmer sale says:

    How could you do an emelet immediately if you have these frozen eggs. . .

  7. Cori says:

    freezing eggs has been a saving grace for my family. Not all people can afford $5 to just go buy a carton of eggs whenever they run out. Some of us are mentally and physically disabled and on a fixed income. Or abused or homeless women and children that freezings eggs may allow us to spread out that carton of eggs and ration them so as to be able to eat for longer periods of time. It seems to me the response of why on gods green earth do this…. Is the response of someone who is very selfish, narrow minded, lacks empathy, and above all- needs to reread the bible before including GOD in such a statement!

  8. Kim says:

    Thank you. This would be perfect for camping.

  9. Ambet says:

    I have frozw eggs in their shell before which works great but takes a lot of space. Just ran warm water over the shell and peeled it. Put it in the pan while frozen and it makes eggs over easy perfectly

  10. Joy Libert says:

    Also….the price of eggs is going up and down right now…so if I find a great sale on eggs….you can bet I am going to be freezing up a couple of dozen for future use.

  11. Sierra says:

    Then don’t do it…weirdo!

  12. M says:

    I would say the reason someone might ask WHYYY?!?! Is probably because the thought has never crossed their mind. They are fortunate enough not to need to freeze their eggs. I had no idea that chickens slow way down in the winter months and I’m willing to guess others may have not know this.

  13. Heather says:

    Ever think you might be the weirdo for being such a judgemental douche about something as simple as freezing eggs?

  14. Stephanie says:

    Smart! I’m lucky if I get an egg a day right now (winter) . . . and I too, refuse to buy store bought eggs!

  15. ValerierWhite says:

    I can understand if you raise your own chickens, or if you seperate eggs for recipes and don’t want the rest to gi to waste, but outside if that I could not understand why you would do this. And using the economical reason doesn’t make much sense because you would just buy a smaller package, they last for awhile.

  16. Becky says:

    You are so dumb

  17. Kathy ten Cate says:

    Well said. Some people are truly narrow minded and lack empathy and intelligence. I think it is a brilliant idea and actually I learnt something today. Never thought it was possible to freeze eggs.

  18. Mike M. says:

    Biggest advantage… since eggs go bad after a period of time, even if they have been refrigerated. By freezing them, you can keep them for a long time before they go bad. Suggestion though… after freezing, store them in your freezer in airtight freezer zip-lock bags or airtight tupperware-type containers in order to prolong the use of the eggs and to keep them from sponging flavors and smells from other products in the freezer.

  19. John Hatfield says:

    just coat in mineral oil and they last for months

  20. Kat says:

    It’s such an ignorant comment. Call people weirdo’s coz u dont understand.

  21. Aunt B says:

    How long will they keep in the freezer? Thanks

  22. Alexandra Walker says:

    How long can you keep the eggs in the freezer?
    I love the idea, thank you for sharing!

  23. Marilyn says:

    when I was a young and poor single person, eggs were a great inexpensive source of protein. I would buy as much as I could afford when they were on sale and crack 4-6 eggs into a ziplock bag stick a fork in and break the yolks and freeze the bag flat and stack them. I take one out at night and by morning it was thawed in the fridge and I’d make scrambled eggs for breakfast with extra for later. At the time I was told you had to break the yolks. eggs and cheap bread were my Saving Grace

  24. Chris says:

    We have chickens but do not wash until used. I read an article that stated unwashed, free range eggs last 7 months so no need to freeze?
