You need to add either salt or sugar to egg yolks that you are going to freeze. Otherwise they'll be gummy and unusable when thawed.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

The yolks will keep for a day in a bowl, covered with water. If you don't use them by then, toss them.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I'f I'm using an egg-white only recipe, I'll either use powdered egg whites, or:

1) use the saved yolks for a following-morning breakfast omelette, or

2) cook the yolks up & split them between the dogs & my cockatoo.

freezing fresh eggs - whites or yolks

Eggs can be successfully frozen if they are separated.

Put egg whites in one container in the freezer - egg yolks in another container in the freezer. In my experience, it is not necessary to add either salt or sugar prior to freezing.

Label the containers with the date and amount of egg whites / yolks. Use within 6 months.

Defrost in the refrigerator.

I use (defrosted) egg yolks to enrich any homemade white sauce and/or cheese sauce. I use (defrosted) egg whites for dishes requiring extra egg whites (such as a souffle). I use either (or both) to enrich homemade (white) bread or to glaze the finished bread.

I didn't know you could freeze raw eggs, thanks for the
info. I don't eat eggs by themselves, but need them
for recipes. They usually go bad before I can use up
the dozen....

Like someone mentioned earlier, egg fried rice is yummy.

Also, a good option is to use it in breading (egg drop)

You can then fry a fish, chicken fingers, pork, shrimp, what have you, all you need to add to the yolks is Salt, Pepper, flour and/or cornstarch, perhaps cooking wine then coat with bread crumbs and youre good to go.
