84 eggs later....

I have made 8 crustless quiches, each with 8 eggs = 64 eggs

They came out of the oven after half an hour and they smelled wonderful!! They are now all tucked into the freezer, to be pulled out for meals and picnics etc.

That's what 84 eggs worth of shell looks like. I have a plan to dry them out in a low oven and then use them to keep slugs away from the lettuce plants.

You might be wondering what I used the other 20 eggs for? Another dozen went into lemon curd, so I have six more jars of that put up on the pantry shelves, and then I just hard boiled the last 8 and they are in the fridge for breakfasts, quick snacks and lunches. They'll be gone soon!

Wow, that's what I call a pile of eggshells! Well done. I have plans to make a stack of quiche this weekend as well.

I've found a new (to me) blog featuring a recipe to use up eggs - pound cake. she gives the single recipe then the 8 loaves recipe which uses up 24 eggs. they apparently keep in the freezer for a year:

Yes, Granny Miller's site is excellent and I have been there before, although not recently. Thanks for reminding me about it! I'll go and get that recipe written down as it looks great.

Good luck with the quiches.
