6 dozen eggs

Ordered by mistake on am thinking of it as an opportunity rather than a mistake, and want to try something (s) new.

What would you do?

I am making creme brulee tonight

  1. You can make some quiches, biscuits, and egg burritos and freeze them. Then you don't have to worry about breakfast or lunch for a long time!

      Meringues! They're really easy and so fun. Vanilla, lemon, chocolate, coffee--the possibilities are endless.

      Bread pudding.

      Egg, chorizo, cheese and bean burritos.

    2. Eggs will also keep longer than the date on the package.

      Just keep them in the original cartons and put them on the lowest shelf of the fridge in the back.

      They should be good for at least a month to 6 weeks.

      1. lemon curd.

        angel food cakes.

          hehe, yeah. I was going to say angel food cake and ice cream. I used up a ton of eggs that way.

          1. I don't know if you celebrate Easter, but you could have one mean Easter egg hunt! Deviled eggs and egg salad always go over well in my house. Poached eggs with hollandiase, and cheese strata are also good choices. Mmmm. I'd eat eggs every day for breakfast if I could. French toast, over easy, scrambled, omelet, egg sandwich with bacon and cheese..I gotta go make some eggs now, excuse me :)
