Favorite gluten-free Egg Dishes?

Our chickens have gone into overdrive! We have 6 chickens and they are all laying every day recently. 6 eggs a day is a lot to keep up with. Im running out of ideas on how to use them. Hard boiled? Done it. Baking bread, cakes and cookies? Oh, yes, lots of times. As a hair conditioner? Done that too.

Do you have any TNT dishes you could share that use eggs? Maybe even lots of eggs? I am giving some away, using some and selling some, but I'd love new recipe ideas.

TIA!

I make this breakfast casserole every weekend, i use a lot of eggs because i use a lot of whites:

makes 8 servings with 250calories each:

1 pkg shredded hashbrowns obrien

2 gluten-free chicken sausages (I use the Aidelle's from Costco-any flavor)-remove casings and chop small

7 large eggs

10 large egg whites

1 large tomato thinly sliced

1 cup 2%milk shredded cheddar cheese

Mrs. Dash or other seasonings

Spray 9x13 dish with cooking spray

spread hashbrowns on bottom

distribute sausages evenly over hashbrowns

place tomato slices over sausages

beat eggs and whites together and pour over casserole evenly

sprinkle cheese over

add seasonings

bake 375 for ~60 minutes. Check after 40 to make sure cheese isn't getting too brown, cover with foil if needed. When eggs are set in the middle, it's done!

You can assemble the night before and bake in morning.

Meringue Pies!!

(I don't have recipe because I've never been successful at meringue - too much grease in my kitchen?). But they use LOTS of egg whites.

LARGE omelettes for king size men for Sunday breakfast.

Large quantity of french vanilla homemade icecream.

That's all I can think of.

I ended up with about 20 cartons of eggs in my fridge last summer (long story), so I kind of know where you're coming from. :rolleyes:

If you can find some coconut flour, there's a chocolate cake recipe that uses 9 eggs. I think you can find it on Mercola's website. I've made it and it's good (I think I used real sugar instead of stevia, and turned it into chocolate muffins with raspberry jam centers). You could make a few cakes, some muffins, cupcakes etc. using different variations of that same recipe.

You can also make frittatas in muffin tins (mix eggs with your favorite fillings, pour into muffin tins, bake then freeze. Microwave when you want them later).

Eggs mixed with a little hemp milk (or milk of choice) and added to sauteed peppers and onions is quite tasty as a frittata and it uses many eggs if you're feeding a family for dinner. That one's kind of obvious though.

I have chickens too, and they're doing the same! It's because we have more daylight now.

I love Tortilla Espanola, and its Italian counterpart Frittata (sp?). I don't have an exact recipe, it's kinda something you make up and you go along. But it's like a giant baked omelette that you cut and serve in wedges, like a pie. Sautee a bunch of vegetables of choice (I love spinach, mushroom, sun dried tomato, bell pepper...be creative). Scramble a bunch of eggs (2-3 per person). Mix eggs and vegetables in a baking dish. You can also add cheese if you do dairy. Bake until done (until brownish on top, will take about 1/2 an hour I think, at around 350).

If you've ventured into gluten-free pie crust, I'd make quiche. gluten-free Pie crust is great. It never gets soggy.

Also, angel food cake uses about a dozen eggs and is low in sugar. I know there are gluten-free recipes out there for it. But I haven't tried them.

Colleen,

I was going to suggest what has been mentioned here, quiche, frittatas, bread pudding (some recipes call for 8-12 eggs), custards.

I found this link (not gluten-free, would have to be modified), she had the same problem as you and was given many suggestions, might give you some ideas:

I can vouch for this quiche, someone made it for me and it is very good (you'll need to supply the gluten-free crust :P ):

I've made these fritatas many times, substituted with bacon, different cheeses like smoked gouda, veggies like roasted bell peppers, etc, very versatile:

I would say bread pudding, the not-so-great gluten-free breads typically work very well when turned into stuffing or bread pudding or french toast. And any baking with coconut flour is good because it calls for so very many eggs, so that way you get more protein in your baked goods and that's healthier.

I am so jealous!!! What kind of chickens do you have? I used to have 4 Araucanas and 3 Partiridge Rocks...( I lived out in the country in Nevada for 3 1/2 years)

I miss the eggs. I love them hard boiled. So did all the neighbors! lol

good luck I ended up taking a lot of them to the local foodbank! B)

enjoy!

You could make a quiche. I use 4 eggs to 1 1/2 cups of cream then vary the cheeses and other ingredients (my last one was proscuitto and cotswold cheese). I usually make a potato crust for my quiche (2 large peeled and grated potatoes, salt them for about 10 minutes then wring out in a clean tea towel, add 1 Tbsp of oil and one beaten egg then press into a quiche pan/pie pan. Bake the crust for 45 - 50 minutes remove and add egg mixture with add ins and bake until done). It makes a nice meal and uses 5 eggs in the process.

Edited to add: Make french toast. I use Kinnickinick Tapioca English Muffins they make excellent french toast.

Zowie - thatsa lotta eggs! I'll stop whining since we are about 3 dozen ahead, then. :lol:

Yeah, you're right. I was so bummed when we didn't get a single egg November - January (days too short). But they are definitely making up for lost time now.

We have 2 Dominiques, 2 Australorps, 1 Easter Egger and 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte. We have had them since they were 3 days old. It's hard to imagine what were once a tiny peeping balls of fluff have turned into gynormous egg laying machines! Here is a pic of the girls, and here is a pic of the daily haul. :)

Thanks for all the great recipes! I can't wait to try them.
