Stinky Eggs

8 posts in this topic

I am going away this weekend and the hotel breakfast is a quick bread filled take away kind of thing. I want to bring my own hard boiled eggs. I find that whenever I travel with cooked eggs they totally stink up my cooler. The taste is fine, just the stink I hate. Anyone have any ideas how to bring hard boiled eggs that won't stink?

We found a Lock&Lock container that's designed to hold eggs. It's shaped like an egg carton and locks down like Lock&locks do. Maybe tht would keep the smell in?

I bet the Lock & Lock would be good since it actually seals. I also thought of an appropriate sized glass jar with a screw on lid.

Or if push comes to shove, would a ZipLoc freezer bag work? I often put hard boiled eggs in it when I store them in the fridge.

Have you ever tried 2 layers of zip-type bags? When I need to store the rest of a cut onion, I place it in a zip bag, smash out the air, close the bag, and then put that whole thing down inside another bag and zip it closed. This works even with cheaper bags.

Freezer bags have always worked fine for me. Though, of course, some people (like my husband) are FAR more sensitive to the smell than others. ;)

When I have something "stinky" to store in my fridge, I will use many layers of plastic bags to seal the smell. In your case I would put eggs into two Ziploc bags, then in any plastic container and then in 4-5 plastic bags from store (Shoprite, Pathmark). This should be good enough to seal the smell.

Ones I did that with the bread that I was freezing in the freezer full of meat and kolbasy (garlic) because I didn't want to have stinky bread and it worked. My bread was perfect. So, if this worked for my bread, it can work the opposite way- for your eggs.

I researched further on the egg topic and found out that overcooked eggs are the ones that stink. If you don't overcook they are fine. I tried this and my cooler is smell free! I was worried that I'd undercooked them but they were perfect. I just ate two for breakfast and have no stink. Apparently I have been over cooking eggs for years!
