Using up an obscene amount of eggs - help!

JasFoodie | Mar 13, 2014 01:39 PM

I have just been given an insane amount of eggs - 4 half gallon cartons of eggs, frozen. Not individual eggs, but a solid brick of beaten up eggs in a carton. I'm assuming that once I let a carton thaw out, I really ought to use it all up fairly quickly rather than refreezing the eggs. So while the first carton thaws in the fridge, I'm on a mission to find recipes.

I'm feeding just myself, so most likely I'm going to want recipes that I can freeze. I'm on a very tight budget, so no expensive ingredients please! I'm also trying to lose weight, so cakes/cookies/desserts are low priority. Though I am thinking I need to make atleast one batch of rice pudding.

My ideas so far are egg noodles, crustless quiche (isn't that just an egg casserole?) and breakfast burritos that I can freeze individually. I've never frozen cooked eggs before, so if anyone's got any tips to keep my breakfast burritos from turning into a rubbery mess I'd appreciate it too. And I'd really like to find something a little out of the norm.. there's only so many times I can eat a breakfast burrito before I get completely sick of it!
