the spinache quiche I made yesterday calls for 3 eggs.

1) Cook 1 package of frozen spinach according to package directions and drain well.
2) Shred 1 cup of cheddar cheese and mix with drained spinach. I also added some minced garlic
3) Place mixture in 1 pre-baked deep dish pie shell.
4) In separate bowl mix 3 eggs, 1 tbsp. flour with salt and pepper to taste.
5) Add 1 cup milk and mix together.
6) Pour over spinach and cheese mixture in pie shell.
7) Bake 45 mins. to 1 hr. at 350 degrees.

I've always heard that properly refrigerated, eggs keep up to 3 months.

I buy eggs 60 at a time, or two flats. With five kids, that's the only way to go. I can usually get 2 - 3 weeks out of that, before I run out.

How about a Bacon, Vidalia, and cheese Quiche? I've been wanting to make one for days now, but my work schedule barely leaves me enough time to make a quick dinner.

Oooh - I second a nice platter of Deviled Eggs!! With that many you can experiment & make several different fillings!!

You can have them as a snack or appetizer, top salads with them, serve a couple as an entree side dish. . . .

Can you tell I love Deviled Eggs? Lol!!

lots of great ideas here, but what's your hurry? Unless you've had them hanging around for a month or so, they should be fine right where they are.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Eggs are still fine long after the exparation day. They can seat in refrigerator for weeks and weeks.

I wanted to say quiche, quiche, quiche - but legend 'beat' me to it.

How about quiche? - asparagus, swiss cheese, a pinch o' nutmeg. You can toss almost anything in it you have around (broccoli, cheddar, bacon, etc,)

Frittata - or if you like eggs & potatoes - Tortilla Espanola (I posted a recipe on this site - searchy)

Souffle - Basic, Cheese, Seafood

Chocolate Souffle

Recipe: Chocolate Souffle

Chocolate Mousse (There are a few good ones in the link above

Taco Salad

Eggstra Easy Taco Salad


There are lots of yummy egg recipes here:

Main Dishes

If you have a few good eggs left, how about Carbonara.

There's an egg custard recipe, I saved waaay back. If your interested, give a holler.

I found one that looks more interesting than mine:
Egg Custard

Scramble eggs freeze very well. But do not freeze raw eggs. Once in a while everyone will have extra eggs in the refrigerator. (buy 1 get one free offers).

Like lulu suggested, if you do not want to deal with them and they are fresh, give them away. Your local food banks will accept them if they have a reasonable expiration date. Gardeners also give much needed fresh produce to the food banks.

I had a lot of eggs so I decided to hard boil them and then I put them through an egg slicer and diced them up and put 2 Cups of them in a quart freezer bag and froze them. Turned out that they are really great for stews, soups or what ever you all make with eggs in it. Potato salad and all other kinds of salad. I how ever would not use them for egg salad.

How about a bread pudding?
Custard pudding?
Ham, chicken, tuna, potato, or just plain egg salad?
Pickled eggs?
Scoth eggs?
Creamed eggs over toast?
