Frozen eggs?

I was just given a box of eggs, I tried to give some away, but i still have at leat 3/4 of a box. The only storage i have available is my basement fridge. Unfortunately it is broken and everything freezes in there. What shouyld I do? Can I put eggs in there anyway and let them freeze? Or should I through away right away? I will try to give more away, of course, but I doubt I can give away the whole box.

Move some other things to the basement fridge and put your eggs in the frisge that works right.

You can freeze eggs, but not in the shell. Here are directions:

Yes, Charlie, eggs can be frozen, but not in the shell. I used to do it all the time when our 5 children were at home. We used to buy eggs in 15 dozen cases. I froze them almost exactly as recommended in the link Connie posted.

Okay here's my dilemma - I had half a dozen eggs in a metal loaf pan on the top shelf of my fridge where I normally keep the eggs. I usually store them in the container they come in but had one break and needed to remove the others so they wouldn't stick to the cardboard. I went to use them today in my salisbury steak recipe and they were frozen. I've currently got them sitting in room temp water hoping they will thaw and I can use them. Will that work or should I just toss them and use the newer ones I just bought this week?

The frozen ones will be fine. My chicken house is unheated (dang, I am a bad chicken mama) and eggs will freeze sometimes. As long as they don't crack from freezing, I treat them just like the other eggs.

Thanks. I did use them and so far no one is sick! I'm not sure why they froze but glad to know it is okay to use them!

I like my fridge nice and cold. There's nothing like a good COLD glass of milk. My eggs freeze all the time. I've never had any problems.
