DH and I both inadvertently stocked up on eggs and didn't know either one had. Now we have 72 eggs in the fridge..

I need ideas, recipes, anything. Simple things are preferred, few ingredients I mean, since we don't have too much else in the house at the moment. :

Thank you!!

Quiche is good, if you have the ingrediants for pie crust. You can use up bits and bobs of veg, meat and cheese, as well.

Spanish tortillas are also very good, filling, and require few ingredients. It's basically a bunch of eggs, some potatoes thinly sliced, and some onion cooked into a giant pancake.

Scrambled eggs? Fried eggs? Frittatta? Omelettes? French toast?

Egg foo yung? I found a couple good recipes on allrecipes.com. Use whatever veggies you fancy and have.

Alfredo sauce? Crepes/pancakes?

Those eggs will stay good for a while past the expiration date, too.

Hard-boil 'em for a quick high-protein snack. Slice a couple of hard-boiled eggs over a green salad . . . make egg salad samdwiches . . .

You can even make crust-less quiche if you don't want to do the crust - my dad easts that a lot!

Noodles! You can dry or freeze them. My (very rich and fatty and delicious) noodle recipe from MIL:

6 eggs
1 melted stick butter
1 Tbsp salt
4ish cups flour

Mix and knead the dough. If you have a pasta cutter, lucky you. If not, roll it out real thin and cut into noodles. Or use for lasagna. Or make ravioli. If I were in your situation, I'd probably make a double batch of ravioli and freeze them. Well wrapped, they keep ok for a month or two. Maybe I'd make some lasagna too and freeze that. With those you get to use even more eggs in the filling!

There are a couple old school recipes I remember from when I was a kid,

Eggs Goldenrod
basically chopped hard boiled eggs over toast with a white sauce on top.

Curried Eggs
Sliced hard boiled eggs in a white sauce with curry powder over rice.

Deviled Eggs always seem like treat to me-instant picnic.

You could also make a bread pudding or egg custard.

Tortilla/Fritatas are awesome! Here's how I make it:

You'll need:
An ovenproof skillet
Peeled and sliced potato, enough to cover the bottom of your skillet without overlapping.
thinly sliced large onion
6 beaten eggs
salt and pepper

Brown thinly sliced potatoes in olive oil, then remove them into a large bowl. Cook onion in some more olive oil until they're golden. Put the onions into the bowl with the potatoes and mix them, adding salt and pepper to taste. Return the mixed potato/onion to the skillet, heat the skillet on low heat, and add the beaten eggs. Mix gently and make sure the egg covers the entire mixture. Cook over low heat until the eggs begin to set and the edge bubbles a bit. Heat under the broiler until the top is browned and the eggs are completely cooked and set.

Fritata makes an excellent meal with a green salad and some wine.

How about custard?

I like to add raw egg yolk to foods like stir-fries, at the end of cooking. You can hardly notice it at all.

I heartbeat eggs!

YUM! Thank you all so so much. I'm just over the basics you can do with eggs and was looking for even more ideas. I'm not keen on freezing eggs as I don't feel they do all that well (for us) after thawing.

Thanks again.

Wow 6 dozen eggs . I usually keep 4 and I thought I was nuts.

I would make some homemade bread, and make a TON of french toast and freeze. I cut the bread really really thick and make french toast sticks. DS goes nuts for them, so does DH
