What do I do with frozen eggs? If an egg accidentally freezes and the shell cracked during freezing, discard the egg. However, if the egg did not crack, keep it frozen until needed; then thaw it in the refrigerator.
Why can’t you freeze eggs in the shell? When raw eggs freeze, the liquid inside expands, which can cause the shells to crack. As a result, the contents of the egg can spoil and are at risk of bacterial contamination (3, 4 ). Additionally, freezing raw, shelled eggs can negatively affect the texture, as the egg yolks become thick and gel-like.
What is the best way to freeze eggs? Store your eggs. Cover and freeze in a muffin tin or ice cube tray until frozen (about 4-6 hours), and then transfer them to freezer containers or freezer-safe bags. Label your eggs. Add the date, the quantity and make a note on your storage container if you used salt or sugar in the eggs.
