I have 22 hens that are kicking into high gear laying eggs. If you, too, are looking for egg recipes, I found tons by goggling "recipe 12 eggs", "recipe 7 eggs", "recipe 10 eggs" etc. There are many EGGceptional recipes online!

Our family ate this when I was growing up. This is very filling and inexpensive to make. We have 10 kids in our family so mom was always looking for inexpensive yet filling meals. We called this "Goldenrod".

My chickens and ducks are laying in triple overdrive. Normally I can make noodles and angel food cake to use up the extras, but I have at least 3 hens who are laying twice a day. The family is getting tired of omelets, deviled eggs, egg salad, and egg based casseroles. I need some new recipes that use LOTS of eggs. Any ideas?

Please don't tell me to give them away or sell--I have been! I still have had about 18 extra eggs a day for the last few days.

Hi April,

Gosh, I sure do wish I lived near you as I would be more than happy to take some off of your hands. I live in Mass. and boy, oh boy are they ever expensive. How about making an angel food cake with the whites & then you could freeze the yolks. Good luck.

Creme Brulee uses a lot of egg yolks, and it is a great dessert!

Quiches, mousses and meringues (for yolks and whites alternatively), and ice creams (yolks). You could always make a few dollars and sell the extras?

I take a few slices of bacon, brown and crumble into fairly large pieces. Break bread into a bowl and add some eggs with a tiny bit of milk, mix pretty well but not till mush, add egg mixture to pan with bacon and cook until done.

We call thee poor mans eggs and it is a favorite meal of all 4 of my kids plus now the grandkids also like it.

I usually plan about 2 slices of bread and 2 eggs for each but no matter how much I make it disappears.

If you have a boxed cake mix that calls for eggs, just use the egg whites. Three egg whites will give you about the same volume as 2 whole eggs. Or look for a recipe for coconut macaroons. Here is Paula Deen's recipe for the best macaroons I've ever tasted.

Paula Deen's Coconut Macaroons


3 cups shredded coconut

1 teaspoon almond extract

1/8 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

2 egg whites, stiffly beaten

1 teaspoon cream of tartar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine coconut, almond extract, and salt. Mix in condensed milk to form a thick paste. Fold in egg whites with cream of tarter. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

All white cakes ask you to use egg whites only, so look for recipes for white cakes.

You can also scramble egg whites and they are a delicious breakfast food. Healthier than whole eggs as well if you are watching your cholesterol.

Hope this helps.

I use mine to make angel food cake, baked meringues, and I add them to whole eggs in cooking.
