Thrifty tip . . . .our local grocery store stockpiles the egg containers that have maybe one broken egg in the dozen. Then they consolidate them in white egg cartons and title them “Grade B Eggs” and mark them down considerably. We pay around $1/dozen at our local grocery store and stock up on Grade B eggs whenever we see them. If they don’t have them, we ask and they go put one together for us. It’s not unusual for all of our eggs to be Brown, Extra Large or EB brand. If they are all big brown eggs, we think we hit the jackpot :-)!
I’m allergic to egg yolks, can I freeze just the egg whites?
Absolutely! I have done this as well and it works just as well!
