Can I still use eggs that have been frozen?
I just moved in a month ago and I'm still adjusting and apparently I adjusted my refrigerator incorrectly because now my eggs (and my salad and cucumber) are frozen. Can I still thaw them out and use them? And, if I can, do I need to leave them in the fridge to thaw the same as I would meat?
I did and I'm here to talk about it! Just last week I had a couple of my eggs freeze (the back of my refrigerator tends to freeze things). I was actually making a birthday cake and so in all fairness, they were mixed in and beaten with other ingredients. I didn't realize they were semi-frozen until I broken them into my cake mix and said "eh, what the heck". The cake came out the same as any other.
Well, as long as you're still here! I just made myself a big bowl of salad - the lettuce thawed well but the cucumbers... not so much!
I admit they were a little awkward to see, somewhat of a slushy consistency and I don't know that I could've used them as they were in a ready to eat situation, but I don't suspect they're harmful. Agh, frozen salad? MayB ought jus thave the chicken
Just thaw the eggs at room temperature and you could them like any other fresh eggs.
You'll be fine eating it.
I usually toss em, but they are perfectly fine from a food safety standpoint. Just don't thaw them in hot water or anything like that. Its best done on a countertop, cold water, or in the fridge. Too hot a temp can create bacterial growth or denaturing of the proteins, leaving you with a nasty egg white.
My experience is the white is a wee bit more runny than normal, but I like my eggs on the dry side anyways, so its never a prob.

How long do you keep eggs before declaring them no longer fresh?I get a dozen every week, then boil whatever remains, replacing them with more. What's your way?
