Easy Egg Recipes to Use a Surplus of Fresh Eggs


About a month ago, my son and I spent 10 days pet-sitting on a homestead in CT.  We had an amazing time and gained so much homesteading experience, as well as how to care for livestock.  Our usual gigs consist of watching cats and dogs, so this was quite the experience! My son enjoyed caring for the pony, goat, lizard, dog, cat, and bird, but LOVED his experience with the chickens.  Every morning he would wake up and immediately go out to the coop to check for eggs. He repeated that multiple times each day.  With 15 chickens, we had an abundance of eggs, which required us to get creative with recipes.

Here are some of the recipes that we found for using up an excess amount of eggs!
