This scrambled eggs with cheese phase that my boys are going thru right now, I may as well go buy some chickens! I'm going thru a ton og=f eggs, and get tired of running to the store just to get eggs. I usually buy two dozen at a time, but I'm flying thru them!
Wal-Mart has a 5 dozen box for about $4.00. I buy at least 2 every 2 weeks.
I've seen them, but I'm afraid that as soon as I buy a box that big, I won't use them before they expire, and I'll have to toss them. Guess I could make a few angel food cakes if they get close to the date. I may have to buy a big box and see what happens.
I go through eggs like crazy too. My hubby eats around 5 hardboiled a day. I usually buy around 5 dozen a week. I buy mine at Sam's club for the same price as WalMart. I cannot bring myself to pay $2.00 a dozen at the market.
You can freeze them, I think. Can't remember the exact instructions, but you could do a quick google search...
I buy my eggs at Super Walmart. They sell 18 count eggs 2 for $2 or $1 per 18ct.
Here's a link for freezing raw eggs. I haven't tried it myself though. Let us know if it works for you.
thanks a lot for that link, I've printed out the instructions and I'll try it. wow it's a great thing to know!!!
have a nice day
Eggs are good past the exp. date- I use them for a couple weeks after. The following is from the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) website on eggs and exp dates:
Always purchase eggs before the "Sell-By" or "EXP" (expiration) date on the carton. After the eggs reach home, they may be refrigerated 3 to 5 weeks from the day they are placed in the refrigerator. The "Sell-By" date will usually expire during that length of time, but the eggs are perfectly safe to use. This date is not federally required, but may be State required.
To check if an egg is still good, place it in a bowl of water. If it floats it is bad.
I buy farm fresh brown eggs....i pay $1.00 a dozen...and my cakes are so light and moist....
