30 Recipes To Use Up Eggs

These recipes to use up eggs are delicious and healthy ways to turn eggs into a full meal anytime of day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert!  These 30 recipes are fantastic ways to use eggs before they go bad, so you can enjoy some great food without the waste.

I always get a few dozen eggs when we get a grocery order… they are inexpensive, affordable, last a relatively long time (well, longer than produce!), and is a high protein vegetarian option that’s great any time of day.  The only problem is that sometime the expiration date comes a little quicker than I’d like… so I try to get creative with ways to use up eggs!

How To Tell If Eggs Are Still Good?

I use the “float test” to test any eggs that may be close to the expiration date. Sumberge the egg in a bowl of water. If the egg sinks to the bottom, it is still good.  If it floats up to the top, it is not good and should be discarded. This is because as an egg gets older, air pockets form in the shell and make the egg float. Eat any eggs that sink, and discard the rest.
