Too Many Eggs - What to bake or cook to freeze?

For some reason, I have accumulated a plethora of eggs in my refrigerator and want to do some baking or do some cooking with the aim of freezing whatever I make.

I'd be most grateful for suggestions that use a large quantity of eggs! Thanks, Hounds!

(ps, I also have about 2 cups of heavy whipping cream I need to use up, too!).

  1. Ice Cream.....Milk and cream.......

        My first thought, exactly! Quiche uses a lot of eggs, is easy to make and there are so many variations that it is easy to use up meats and veggies from the 'fridge.

          oooh yes. Bread pudding and custard sauce! It doesn't freeze but it keeps in the fridge for up to a week (and who ever had a problem with too much bread pudding?) I ran low on milk last week and made a bread pudding with canned coconut milk instead and it came out fantastic.

        2. Gougeres, or simply a choux pastry. If you bake the gougeres or cream puff pastries you can freeze them. And they are super easy to make.

          Custard-style ice cream - yummm too.

          1. deviled eggs.

            egg salad sandwiches.

            ooh, old fashioned custard eggnog will use eggs and cream. YUMMMMMY. you could turn it into ice cream then!!! with some rum and raisins would be super.

              My British grandmother made the best egg salad ever. Eggs, salt, pepper, mayo and chopped black olives. Sooooooo good. And far better than without the olives.

                My mom's recipe exactly, except we use green olives. Simple and delicious, the salt in the olives cuts the richness very well.
