Freezing is a great way to benefit from food items such as eggs. However, people have mixed opinions, particularly about freezing eggs, as it is difficult to freeze them. Once frozen, it’s extremely difficult to take them out without making a mess. To make your life easier, we tried freezing eggs in 4 different ways and today, we’re sharing the results of our “experiments.”
Let's see which one worked best:
1. Freezing Eggs In A Plastic Tray Without Oil
This method was no good as the ice cube compartments were way too small for the eggs. the worst part of this experiment was that we were not able to take the eggs out, despite our best efforts. We almost ended up breaking the tray! The plastic tray idea was definitely a fail so do not try this trick at home!
2. Freezing Eggs In A Plastic Tray With Oil
Since the plastic-cube tray was too small for the eggs, this time we were successful in popping out the eggs by using a different technique: freeze eggs in a plastic tray with oil. 10/10. Recommended!
3. Freezing Eggs In A Silicone Tray Without Oil
The tray we used for this one had bigger compartments, which meant each compartment could easily hold the entire contents of the egg. Taking out those delicate, beautiful eggs did take a lot of effort but it was all worth it! Through this method, and with some effort, you can get perfectly frozen eggs.
4. Freezing Eggs In A Silicone Tray With Oil
This was the easiest and the best method among all our experiments! It was easy to remove the eggs neatly in one piece from all of the compartments.
To conclude, if you have a plastic tray at your disposal, you can still use it–but make sure to grease it with some oil before adding eggs to each compartment, thus ensuring that the eggs do not stick to the surface. Ideally, to freeze eggs, use a silicone tray. Coat it with some cooking oil before placing the eggs in it, and put the tray in the freezer. If you do not have a silicone ray, fret not, as the plastic tray with oil greasing is a great alternative too!
