50+ Egg Recipes That Will Keep You Busy All Season

This time of year, the amount of eggs we have is totally out of control, and we’re always searching for new recipes to use them up. There’s only so many eggs I can scramble!

Sometimes we give them to the pigs (a great way to give them variety and extra protein and another big step towards self-sufficiency).

 

But, of course, if you don’t have pigs, you’re likely left with a whole lot of eggs and are scrambling (get it? yuk, yuk, yuk) for new recipes to use them up and escape the same ol’, same ol.

 

Here’s 50 recipes (newbies and some classic favorites!) I love that feature eggs!
