What to do with Leftover…..Eggs


Don’t you hate it when you wake up and you are laying in bed and can’t go back to sleep? I do. I won’t stare off into the darkness of the room for long..I usually get up.

Well it has been unusually chilly in Texas this spring and I didn’t want to get up so I did the next best thing..I thought about something helpful I could add to the blog. I mean, doesn’t everyone contemplate their blog at 4 a.m.?

Frugality was once a trait that was admired. A cook that could make something out of nothing, that knew what was in her pantry and used it all..well she was admired. If you have ever read Anne of Green Gables series, perhaps you will remember Mrs. Rachel Lind commenting to Marilla in Anne’s House of Dreams that Anne didn’t have anything in the breadbox that shouldn’t be there..and there was a sense of pride in the comment.

We are such a wasteful society. What you find in the dumpster behind a grocery store is criminal. And with the economy doing what it is doing? Well, maybe it is time to admire frugality and wit once again.

This post begins a regular what to do with left over….. feature.

But…I thought that a cool way to do this would be to make it a round-up. So, every month we will have a new what to do with leftover…. roundup and link to all of the blogs. Cool idea? I thought so.

I will add the round up post, with links, to my pages section Under the heading of Leftovers. Imaginative, I know!

So…Here are the rules:

  • Your recipe must include the leftover featured in a significant amount.
  • For this month’s theme, eggs, you can use them in whatever form. Leftover egg whites, yolks, whole eggs, cooked, half cooked..whatever.
  • You must post by May 21
  • You post must include the banner and a link to this post ..You can reduce the banner size if you wish.
  • You must send me a link to your post, I will grab the picture and format it for my blog.
  • Send it to maryeaudet[AT]gmail[DOT]com

That’s it! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. :)

    • http://www.dreamflowerknitting.blogspot.com Monica

    • Marye

      Ooh what good timing for this.

      Does it have to be the whole thing, or can we use parts? Eg, here’s what i do with extra egg yolks, here’s what I do with extra egg whites?

    • Marye

      You can use the egg whole or in part, cooked, raw, or somewhere in between…It just has to be leftover eggs.

      I love the concept – hmmm…extra/leftover eggs – I didn’t know such a thing existed – maybe I’ve just been using them and didn’t realize I was being frugal :)

    • Marye

      You would be surprised Giz..I mean after you make an angel food cake what do you do with 14 leftover egg yolks?

    • http://lilackitchen.blogspot.com Esther

      Great timing I’m just writting a post about using up egg whites at the moment!

    • Marye

      Great! Let me know!

      Leftover eggs- Easter. Nuff said.

    • Marye

      I see your Easter eggs and raise you 25 barred rock chickens….NUFF said.

    • http://www.dreamflowerknitting.blogspot.com Monica

      Oh!! Now I get it!! (duh, I’m a little slow on the uptake…) You are looking for leftover recipies for eggs….. see, I’m quick this morning! LOL

    • Marye

      You must have gotten more than 2 hours sleep last night. How are you feeling?

    • http://www.robustcooking.com Julie F

      Hah. 25 chickens. I used to raise those bad boys. Want to know what I did with any eggs I didn’t want to cook?

      Let the hen set on them! There, that’s my leftover eggs contribution. :-D

    • Marye

      If only….sigh….
      Actually we give away what we can’t use..there are people who go hungry and so much wasted food..
      Hear that soapbox rattle?

    • http://www.robustcooking.com Julie F

      Soapbox or not, I agree with you. Freegans (some of them0 live only off of what they find in dumpsters. When I worked for ALDI it was pathetic how much unopened food we threw out

      I think this is a wonderful idea, Marye. I’m not sure if I’m going to be participating this time around just because I’m in craziness right now with work, etc., but I think this is just the right way to be thinking about things.

    • Marye

      YAY! Well you will be welcome whenever Jen
