Default I froze the eggs

I just realized that I left a dozen eggs on the back porch. I often
put food in there during the winter that needs to be frozen because my
freezer is very small. I put some meat out there a couple days ago,
but forgot there was a dozen eggs in the box. I just went to look for
these eggs and realized they never got into the fridge.

I did not try to open any of these eggs, but I know they are frozen
because its' zero degrees outside and my cheese is frozen too. (closed
in porch is not insulated).

My question, are these eggs still usable? Can I just hardboil all of
them so they dont go to waste. If YES, can I just boil them while
still frozen?

Or can I just unthaw them and use as normal?

Thanks

Mary

Yes, definitely. The yolks may not stay intact after freezing and
thawing, though.

Can I just hardboil all of them so they dont go to waste.


You can, but you can also make omelets, scrambled eggs, or use them in
other recipes.

If YES, can I just boil them while still frozen?


Don't know about that. Why would you want to? Just stick 'em in the
fridge.

Pretty much, except for the yolk thing. -aem


Thanks for all that replied. I'll just stick them in the fridge.
They have been out on the counter for about 5 hours now so I think
they should be thawed. I sort of thought boiling them would be the
only way to save them, but I see I was wrong. Never froze eggs
before. I also froze some lettuce. I think thats history. The other
day the temps were mid 20's. This sudden drop caught me off guard.
I hate winter !!!!

If you need eggs right away I would try the defrost cycle in the microwave.
