You Don't, "Got Eggs."

This may be a long read but it'll be well worth it. Many times, whenever I come across an article on survival or food preservation I try it out. You never know when the information will come in handy—like now during this pandemic. One article I read a few years ago was on how to freeze eggs, which I did at the time to make sure that it worked.
Simply put two eggs in a bowl and mix/scramble. This, according to the article is the key, that you should scramble them. Then merely pour it into a freezer bag and put it in the freezer. It takes approximately 24 hours to thaw them in the refrigerator, so plan ahead. When thawed and ready to use merely pour the content of the freezer bag into a frying pan and cook as you would normally.
How about a tasty ham omelet! A few days ago I made two omelets and froze them. Two eggs, ham, cheese, onion, and mushrooms. Mixed it up in two bowls poured them in two freezer bags and put them in the freezer. It took two days to thaw one out, but yesterday morning I had a fantastic omelet. The mushrooms that I used were not the all-white kind, so when the mixture was thawed there was black liquid in the bag. Not to worry, as that is what happens when you thaw out that kind of mushrooms. The taste was the same as if it had been made fresh.
If you're lucky, during this pandemic, to find extra eggs it's easy to preserve an extra dozen, so buy two if they'll let you. One batch of pancakes take one egg, so freeze a few, one in each freezer bag.
Four eggs scrambled with a little milk and eight slices of bread make four breakfasts of French toast. I use Sara Lee honey wheat bread. Eat two and freeze six for three more breakfasts in the near future. Soak both sides of the bread in the mixture, not too long as the bread will get soggy and fall apart, and put in the frying pan. Don't forget to sprinkle some cinnamon on top before turning the bread over. Cinnamon French toast—tasty. Before putting the French toast in the (plastic) freezer bags let them cool off and then use Parchment paper between each piece of bread. Even after this pandemic, you can prevent waste by freezing your eggs before the “Use By Date.”
If two or more persons in the household eat eggs for breakfast, you can freeze four or six in the same freezer bag. I freeze only two in each bag as I'm the only one that eats eggs.
Four eggs scrambled in a freezer bag for French toast.
Four eggs scrabbled with omelet ingredients separated in 2 freezer bags
Two eggs scrambled. One in each freezer bag for pancakes.
Two eggs scrambled in one freezer bag for just eggs and bacon or sausage links, etc. = one dozen.
Or any combination based on your family's needs.
Tomorrow, “Got Bread?”
