Egg surplus! Wed, 03/24/04 9:54 AM (permalink)
On of my friends keeps chickens, and for some reason, they have been laying like crazy.

She gave me 3 dozen beautiful brown eggs yesterday, and I need some ideas as how to use them for main dishes from you roadfooders.

Also, how long do eggs stay fresh?

    Eggs should be just fine in the fridge for at least four weeks. If they have not been in the fridge yet, by all means, make fresh mayonnaise. If you do any baking with egg whites, they will last in the freezer for 6 months. Use the yolks for spaghetti carbonara. Otherwise, the freeze for 4 months. To tell if an egg is fresh, put it in salted water. If it sinks, it's okay. If it floats, toss it. Otherwise, frittatas are a nice change from other egg dishes. I dare not mention quiche for fear of further chastisement

    Hey, it's almost Easter, Lone Star, get out your brushes! Perfect timing. You will be the hero Easter Bunny of the neighborhood.

      I don't know about main dishes but I have an old pound cake recipe that uses 11 eggs. It's a real old recipe, you know a pound of flour, a pound of sugar etc. - a true pound "cake" If you'd like to have, let me know & I can post it after I get home tonight.

          LoneStar,

          Definitely try egg decorating, it's lots of fun! Here are some ideas:
          http://www.canadaegg.ca/english/child/decorate.html

          For a main course idea, how about a souffle made with a favorite vegetable or crab meat? Or a cheese souffle, loaded with your favorite kind of hot peppers?

            I'd love it!

            Speaking of easter eggs, last year was the first year all of my kids were either too busy or weren't really enthused about dying easter eggs. I missed it so much that if I can't round them up to do it, I'll do it for me!

              When we would be having dinner at great-nona's house on Sunday, our supper the night before was often an egg sandwich (eat light and get ready for the upcoming feast). But they weren't ORDINARY egg sandwiches.......had to be homemade bread, hand-made mayo, scrambled fresh eggs and big thick slabs of tomato from the garden sprinkled with salt and pepper. Yummy!

              Lone Star, I've been out of my parents' house for 30 years, my Dad is near 80 and he STILL colors eggs every year at Easter! So go for it!

                  BTW, here, in order, are the facial expressions of a chicken in the process of laying an egg:

                    LOL i95!

                    My mom used to call eggs "goks" (I have no idea if I am spelling this right), because she said that was the noice a chicken made when laying them.

                            If they are that fresh, you may have difficulties trying to hard boil them and peel them. Wait a week or so.

                            When I was a bachelor, I would buy eggs and not get around to using the whole dozen so I started putting the date on them. My friend, whose parents had an egg laying production (1000 hens or so) came to visit. He decided he would do a study on my old and dated eggs. I forget how many weeks old the oldest were. The only problem was that when he cracked one into the fry pan it covered the whole bottom. Still tasted good according to him.

                                                Either way, they sure scrambled to their task. Kudos to you for whisking them along. Me? I would've been fried.

                                                (Enough of these puns! No more poaching around. This is eggxactly why people leave this site! There. That was over easy enough.)
