Sharing is caring

There are plenty of things you can do with a glut of eggs, here's 10:

1. Mayonnaise - It uses eggs as the base for the recipe so make a big batch!

2. Custard - Make your own custard from scratch (so much better and healthier than pre-made junk).

3. Cheese cake - Some cheese cakes use a lot of eggs and who doesn’t like a cheese cake - YUM!

4. Pavlova - Uses lots of eggs (whites) so impress your friends and family with a massive pav!

5. Meringue - Make a meringue pie (or several) here's a top recipe from my mother inlaw.

6. Quiche - So easy to make and can easily take 10 or more eggs. Quiche freezes well too so make a few and whack them in the freezer for quick dinners!

7. Scrambled eggs - Uses a lot of eggs, is high in protein, and a fast meal for the family!

8. Pickle - Make pickled eggs - they are easy to do, taste great, and store well!

9. Feed back to the chickens - If you have your own chickens, there's no harm in feeding the eggs back to them. Just boil the eggs in a large pot and leave cool. Then, mash them shell and all with a potato masher or implement - feed to the hens - they love it!

10. Egg throwing contest - For a kids party, set up two grenade bays and have the children line up equally behind both with two eggs each. Out in front (about 20 metres) make a large plaster board target of a person for the kids to aim at and then give them the commands in turn: “Grenade bay 1 ready!”... “Throw!” “Grenade bay 2 ready!”...”Throw!” and so on...They will giggle with glee at seeing the eggs splatter on the target.

Can you add anything to my list? Feel free to comment below :)

Hi Jandawood,

I have made pickled eggs before and I do love them! Haven't tried this recipe though so I will give it a go - if it's close to a family favourite of yours then it probably will be delicious (most family recipies are) many thanks...

This is the closest recipe I can find to the way my Mum used to pickle eggs for Dad. Hope it helps with the glut.

You could always pickle them. My old Dad loved pickled eggs and Mum used to do him a couple of jars at Christmas time every year. I've never had a glut so have never looked for a recipe but I'm sure there are a few on the web.

Hi Eric, I take it you don't like the idea of wasting eggs LOL - point taken! Cheers

In lieu of number 10, I'd recommend donating the excess eggs to a food pantry...
