What to do with 20 eggs

b

Made Easter eggs yesterday w/BB jr. Dyed, colored then blew out the insides Made quiche and clafoutis last night -- so a bit burned out on those fronts. And still have about 20 eggs worth of whites and yokes all mixed together.

Thinking of using about 6 eggs worth to make Nigella Lawson's clementine cake. Would love some other suggestions. Ideally some freezable -- or bringable to the BBs pre-school as a snacks (no nuts).

Also, does anyone know if quiche is freeze-able -- or is that disgusting...

    Pudding, creme brulee, or egg custard tarts. Kids like all of these!

      Spanish Tortilla! I just had my first last night. It will use 10 eggs, and the taste is more about the potatoes than the eggs. The CI recipe is on my blog.

        Quiche is freezeable, and not disgusting. A nine-inch diameter quiche takes about 45 minutes to an hour to reheat at 350.

        Could also make French toast or Monte Cristos. Or artichoke squares http://www.fortysomething.ca/2007/12/...

          Fritatta? Or else you could do a quick google search and see how many eggs = how many cups, and start measuring out your mixed eggs to make cookies and the like. Those would probably freeze better than the egg alone...I looked briefly and it seems like 1 egg=1/4 cup...

              Ile Flottante will use a bunch of those eggs in both the custard and the merengue. So delicious and fairly easy to make. Many recipes online. I like to add a sauce with either brandy or cognac.

                Sounds good, the catch is this recipe appears to involve separated eggs and the eggs I have got all mushed together in the blowing-egg process... Which also rules out making meringues, macaroons and ice cream unfortunately.

                  They're mixed together? Bummer.

                  You could do a big pot of stracciatelle and go slightly heavier on the eggs than normal or maybe a strata.

                If you are stumped, I guess it's better to freeze the eggs, then thaw them and put them in something when you're inspired.

                Or, if there is someone you don't particularly like, pour the eggs out in their garden or planter and cover them with something, then wait a few days for things to get interesting.
