Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients in your kitchen. From frittatas to fry-ups, baking to boiling, they can be turned into something delicious for any meal. But sometimes, we may find ourselves with a couple too many.

Every day in Scotland, we throw away around 87,000 eggs, often because they’re close to their ‘best-before’ date. In fact, as long as you cook them thoroughly, eggs are safe to eat up to a couple of days past the date printed on the box, so you could still save them from the bin even if the date is creeping closer. A good way to prevent them from spoiling is to store them in the fridge, where they’ll stay fresher for longer.

No need to get into a scramble, as we’ve got lots of ideas for how to make the most of your eggs! And if you want to save them for later, scroll down for our handy video on how to freeze them. Yep, you can freeze eggs – isn’t that cracking?
