What do you do with all those eggs?

Nearly every week when I post our harvest results I get a comment just like this “what do you do with all those eggs?”.  Well I will admit we struggle some times using up all the eggs our girls are giving us.  We get a minimum of 30 eggs a week from our 6 hens, some times closer to 40.  We try to give away some eggs (or sell them) every week.  But our regular egg customer hasn’t been around much the last few months so we are having to get creative!!

But here’s a trick that always works well to take care of a dozen eggs.

I sneak out to the garden and harvest a few green onions and some chives.

The veggies get chopped up and cooked until tender!

The eggs get scrambled with a tablespoon of milk per egg and added to the veggies.

Cook them till they reach your desired “doneness” and there you go!  One dozen eggs dealt with.  Serve with some waffles and you have a great Sunday breakfast!  The onions and chives really make these eggs pop!  When the tomatoes are on we will even slice up a few cherry tomatoes and add them for the last couple of minutes of cook time.

Of course there are 6 of us so we can usually tackle a full dozen eggs, but some times even we can’t eat them all so they will go in the fridge to be used the next day or two in breakfast burritos!!

    sounds good…. but 3 doz eggs for 6 people? Poof! No problem! My dog, cat and I go through 2 doz a week! High quality, well-priced protein for all of us, LOL, and I know EXACTLY what’s in those eggs! Seriously, I eat a couple a day, and I’m not fussy about which meal it’s for. Wonderful hot or cold as a frittata with lots of veggies, too! Sometimes I’ll cook down a tomato and onion, add a diced hot pepper and green pepper, zucchini, then when it’s tender add a tiny bit of water and break a couple of eggs on top and “poach” them on top of the veggies. No reason to ever be bored when you’ve got fresh eggs to work with!

    We are getting mmore than we can handle right now. Find ourselves giving away and selling them. New hens are laying daily and the old gals are still laying, some of them….
    Someone said on this post that they would like eggs if they lived closer, makes me wonder if there is a blog or group where one might post locations and maybe connect with each other…???
