Can Scrambled Eggs Be Frozen?

Ordinarily it isn’t a good idea to freeze cooked egg whites because they taste rubbery when they are thawed. But when they are all mixed up with the yolks, they keep their good taste and texture. So yes, you can freeze scrambled eggs and have a handy breakfast waiting for you in the freezer. Great for mornings when you don’t have time to cook. Sprinkle with some cheese before you warm it up, and take it with you!

HOW TO FREEZE

For the best texture, cook them just until they are still a little more soft than you want to eat them. They will firm up a little bit when you reheat them. Let them get completely cool, and freeze in individual servings in a muffin pan. Put them into the freezer for about 20 minutes until they are slightly frozen. Then wrap them and put into a freezer bag, squeezing out as much air as possible. They will keep up to a year, but will have the best taste for a few months. If you want to serve several people at once, they can also be frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag.

HOW TO THAW

To thaw scrambled eggs, take them out of the freezer the night before and put them into the refrigerator. That way they can be reheated in a frying pan or in the microwave for a short length of time. Or if you don’t think about thawing them ahead, they can be thawed in a pan or microwave on low heat to keep them from cooking too much. They should be eaten right away and shouldn’t be refrozen.
