Frugal Living Tip: Freeze Eggs & Save Money

Truth be told there are actually two ways you can successfully freeze eggs. I know, you're probably thinking it sounds crazy, but no worries, it's not crazy at all. This is good news if you land a great egg sale somewhere and want to stock up. Even better news for people like me who buy an entire carton only to use 1 egg. Now, I can freeze them and use them later! 

Here are the two best methods for freezing eggs:

1. Egg Yolk & Egg White: Break the egg and whisk the yolks and whites together. Then, simply pour the mixture into an ice cube tray. Every ice cube equals one whole egg. Now, I will tell you they are not as fluffy as the "norm" when you start cooking with them (in the event you wanted scrambled eggs) but they still work great for baking and such. 

2. Separate the Yolk & White: Want to keep them separated? That's easy to do using the same method above. Simply pour the whites into ice cube trays. Whisk them up a bit before pouring, same goes for the egg yolk. 

You can thaw them out in a refrigerator overnight if you'd like. You can also mix your frozen eggs with fresh eggs if you are trying to cook up an omelet. Try it out and see what you think!
