Eggs, eggs and more eggs

6 dozen+ eggs

6 dozen+ eggs

I am totally overwhelmed with eggs. The girls are doing a sterling job and I collect from 6 to 11 every day. Just how many egg meals can you have in a week? Poached, boiled, scrambled, omelette, frittatas, I have even started baking cakes, much to Jack’s delight.

In desperation I went to Google, that know-all depository of the computer world. I typed in “how to use lots of eggs” it came up with 34 MILLION results in 24 seconds. Now that is a lot of people with surplus eggs…

This was one of my favourites

Impossible Pie

  •  4 eggs (I used 6 small bantam eggs)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 2 tsp van ess

Mix all together, pour into large pie pan or casserole. Bake 180C approx. 45 minutes.

That is very easy to make and it forms a delicious custardy centre under a coconutty topping. Yummy….

I would appreciate any suggestions for using lots of eggs.

  1. oh pomme – mmmmm – that’s a lot of eggs!

    I would have been making some quiche – but the pie recipe you found sounds like a great custard.

    • It was a good time there. I don’t usually do much baking, after all what you bake you eat and more of it when it is your own stuff!!! And I really do not need all that extra food…. I do cook a lot of quiche and frittata it is one of my favourite standbys.
