Windfall of Eggs

DW gave a friend whose car broke down, a ride to the grocers today. Instead of giving us gas money, she gave us a bag of eggs that she had gotten from her tribe comods program. It was a huge bag.

I looked up equivalent quantities and found that 3 tbs. beaten egg equals 1 egg, and that a pint equals 10 eggs. So I portioned out the eggs into pint zipper-freezer bags. I now have about 250 eggs going into the freezer. I think I'm good for beaten eggs for a while. I see lots of quick-breads, pancakes, custards, pastry creams, and all things made with eggs in my future. I might even make a souffle, or quiche, or maybe even some egg-drop soups. Lemon curd anyone? I'm also thinking French-Vanilla Ice cream. It might even be tie to try and make a Sacher Torte. And I;ll definitely need to make some egg noodles of various types.

Anyone have some really great recipes requiring eggs?

Cheese souffle uses eggs.

souffle for 2 uses 4 eggs
souffle for 3 (or maybe 4) uses 6

LOL... have the same problem Chief!

But mine are goose eggs - 1 egg = approx 3 (small ones = 2) large chicken eggs.
I don't want to sell them because I want the shells.
I can eat them cooked in something but not alone as scrambled/fried/omelette.

I have to whiz them up real good and weigh them out.

I collect the shells for decorating/carving/etc. So I typically blow them, save each in a snack size baggie. I also like to separate the whites and yolks and store them also in baggies. I put two yolks in a baggie and freeze it hanging over the edge of a container to keep them separate. (but not the whites, )
I have two laying geese. They lay an egg every other day. They started in Feb sometime and I expect they will go on probably til the end of May or so. That's a lot of eggs.
