Eggs

Eggs are a frugal way to add protein to your diet.  You have many choice how to eat them.  Add to that their use in cooking and baking, and eggs are a very versatile food.  No one likes to run out of eggs.  Powdered eggs are good to have in your pantry.  They work well for baking. 

When eggs go on sale, you can also buy extra and freeze them.  Crack them open, and mix the yolk with the egg whites.  Freeze them individually or in small amounts in small containers like ice cube trays.  When frozen, they can be transferred into freezer bags.  When you need them, all you have to do is defrost them.

Always the eggs you put in the refrigerator in their original carton.  They will last longer.  Eggs store for over a month in the refrigerator.  Eggs stuck to the carton can be removed by placing the bottom of the carton in a little warm water.  This will loosen the egg from the carton.

 

Here are a couple frugal egg recipes.

 

Deviled Eggs

Ingredients

6 hard boiled eggs
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 Tbsp pickle relish
3 Tbsps mayonnaise
paprika

To make peeling the eggs easier, put them in a pan of cold water and bring to a boil.  Then simmer for 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and  put the eggs in a bowl of ice water until cool enough to peel

Remove the eggs from the shell, and cut in half lengthwise.  Scoop out the yolk and put in a small bowl.  Add the vinegar, relish and mayonnaise, as well as any salt and pepper.

Chill before eating.
