Can you freeze eggs? Here’s a handy kitchen hack for if you’ve got a bunch of eggs to use up…and the surprising way to do it. 



  1. Lightly scramble the eggs. Brush oil onto an ice cube tray or muffin tin, or use silicone ice cube trays (this is what we used). Pour the eggs into the holes, either as single eggs or two eggs (our ice cube tray is large and each hole holds 2 eggs).
  2. Freeze 2 hours. Once frozen, pop the eggs out of the ice cube trays and transfer to a sealed container. Freeze for up to 3 months (or as long as 1 year: they’re better fresher).
  3. To thaw the eggs, let them defrost for 24 hours in the fridge. Then cook as you would any scrambled eggs!
