101 Uses for Excess Eggs

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Dear boboff,

All delicious, but isn't such a concentrated egg diet VERY constipating? :pale:

10 Home made mayonnaise
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

I do try and mix it up, but agreed it does read like a daily menu! :icon_smile:

I don't have any friends. :(

Spanish-style frittata needs quite a lot of eggs.
And you can basicly throw in anything that sounds good, like leftover chicken,chorizo sausage,bacon,
onions,greens and peppers etc.

I'm definatly a pickled eggs girl. I'd never heard of them till I moved to the NE and our lad proudly served me one up on a fork dipped in salt. The look he got! But it was DIVINE! I now go nuts for them, so, pickle em all!
