Egg recipes for quick usage needed

Hi EFers

I have ten which expire tomorrow and which I don't want to toss, so I've been looking for recipes. After searching the forum and finding this

Easy recipes using eggs

highly informative thread, I decided to make the following:
- French toast (2 eggs)
- Scrambled eggs (2 eggs)
- Cake (3 eggs)

What do I do with the last three eggs, because after preparing and eating the above meals I don't want anything else that tastes "egg-y" and I can't think of other baked goods which contain eggs aside from cake. Any ideas? Thanks!

Boil them for 7 minutes and use them in a salad next week.

Very urgent indeed. Expiring tomorrow means they immediately turn into stinking mush. By midnight.

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

Eggs usually last well beyond their expiry date - you can test them easily by putting them in water...if they sink (or if they sit up on their ends, which will warn you that they should be used within a few days) they are still good, if they float, get rid of them.

I thought you had to split yolks and whites for ice cream? Since my eggs used for the scrambled ones didn't have nicely separated yolks, I don't know if the ones I have left over would do well when separated.

Slightly too eggy after the french toast and scrambled eggs, but thanks anyway, can be used for the next time this happens!

Hehe. Reminds me of a hilarious post made by another EFer when I had a similar inquiry about using milk quickly - something about milk not leaving the box to look at the date

I completely forgot about this test - thanks for the reminder!

Meringues seem a good idea. Do you think I could use them to make mayonnaise instead of hollandaise at this age?

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

I just made pickled eggs, not to everybody's taste but I love em Boil for ten minutes, let them cool, peel and plonk in some pickling vinegar, they'll be good for a few more years then

I never do. I'm far too lazy for that. I don't even have an ice cream maker.

Sorry I don't have a chocolate recipe - I generally make a vanilla custard (yes, using the whole egg) on the stove top, pour into a shallow dish and pop in the freezer. Take out every 45 mins or so and give a good stir. Do that about 4-5 times.

If I want it berry-flavored then I make a simple warm berry compote at the same time as the custard and then mix them together after they have cooled slightly. I guess you could try the same idea with melted chocolate...never tried, though.

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

I make a frittata when I have eggs to be used up. Fry an onion, left over potatoes or pasta and veg- then beat 4 eggs with a bit of water and pepper, herbs- and pour over the veg- cook for a couple of minutes- then a bit of left over cheese grated on top and under the grill to brown- it looks a bit like a pizza when done- serve in slices with a salad- the left-over slices can be served cold the next day.

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

If you rotate the eggs every few days (just turn the carton over. Oh, and keep them at a constant temperature; the fridge works well but they can be kept in a cupboard so long as the temperature doesn't fluctuate much) they'll keep for many months.

That's brilliant advice. My fridge is extremely cold (probably around 2°) and I don't keep the door open for long periods of time.

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

If you really are concerned, make something that can be frozen - a quiche takes up a minimum of 4 eggs, a victoria sponge takes 3 ... Eat the other 3 in an omlette tonight

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

In a bowl take a cup of white flour (weissenmehl), add 3 beaten eggs, 2 cubes grated cheese, salt & pepper to taste, green chilly finely chopped, tablespoon coriander leaves, tablespoon vegetables like corn / carrot / beetroot finely chopped (optional ), little milk to make a thick paste. It should be thick consistency. Spread on bread & shallow fry . Garnish with pizza mix & serve with ketchup.

Re: Egg recipes for quick usage needed

What I made:

Fried boiled potatoes, chili peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, herbs and ham in some butter until slightly browned. Added the beaten eggs and cooked that for a couple of minutes.
Topped with cheese, covered until melted.
Topped it with a dollop of sour cream. It was incredible!
