This is a great idea! I had wanted to ask for recipes to use up my extra eggs, but didn't think it appropriate for any of the other boards. So, I am now getting 12 eggs a day, anticipate more, and there are only so many scrambled eggs I can eat. Would love any recipes using eggs, whether savory or dessert type concoctions!

I would too. I bake a lot of cakes - 3 eggs each, and use the yolk too regardless of what the recipe says.

BigBoy, don't you think we could invent something like an egg pie? I mean, if Susie can make pies from buttermilk....why can't we make an egg pie? How about something like this:

1 cup brown sugar
12 eggs from pastured hens (orange yolks, you know)
1 cup pecans
1 capful vanilla
1 box vanilla wafers
1 stick (real) butter

Beat eggs on low speed until uniform. Mix in sugar, vanilla and as much butter as you want. Mix until well mixed (from the Dept. of Redundancy Dept.) Put in pie shell and float the vanilla wafers on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.

I might try putting some cheese in there too, but would then leave off the vanilla wafers.

Here are a couple of websites with egg recipes for you to check out:
American Egg Board - Egg Recipes
The Country Hen - Egg recipes

Let's see....besides scrambled, we make a lot of omelets, breakfast for dinner helps with that. I hardboil eggs on a regular basis and make deviled eggs a lot. Angelfood cake is a good one to use up a bunch of whites and then I stick the yolks in the microwave and make my dogs pretty happy with that one. smile Made from scratch cream pies are good -- and meringue on top takes a couple more whites. Hollandaise sauce (ooops, lots of fat!) on asparagus or fish....Mmmmm! And when all else fails and I get overwhelmed and start feeling like I need a second refrigerator, I scramble up a couple dozen with the crunched up shells and feed 'em back to the chickens. I could do quiche but my husband won't eat it.

That's about all I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe those websites will inspire you!

Lee -- I am cracking UP at the "egg pie" recipe! LOL! Let me know if your experiment comes out okay. laugh

I agree with Susie, let me know how it turns over (I mean out).

My mother's Kentucky Chess Pie pretty much fits your definition of an egg pie. It calls for half a dozen eggs. Most chess pie recipes I have seen don't call for a merange top, but my mother's did. With six egg whites, the merange rises majestically.

Here 'tis:

Kentucky Chess Pie
learned from Elizabeth Elder Henderson

Makes one 9-inch pie.

1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup Crisco or softened butter
5 to 7 tablespoons water
dash (no more than 1/4 teaspoon) salt

1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cornmeal
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
no more than 1/4 teaspoon salt
6 egg yolks, lightly beaten (yes, that's six)
1 teaspoon lemon
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine

6 egg whites (yes, that's six here, too)
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 teaspoons cornmeal
3 tablespoons cold water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Combine crust ingredients and roll out crust. Carefully place in a 9-inch
pie pan.
Combine sugar, cornmeal, flour, and salt in a large bowl; blend in egg
yolks and lemon. Stir in butter. Pour into unbaked pie crust.
Create meringue by beating the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
While still beating, gradually add water and sugar, then the cornflour.
Finally add vanilla. Top filling with meringue. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

I have two receipes that use a lot of eggs that my family really enjoys!!

#1 Granny's Omelete

Slice a potato and an onion and fry in butter or oil until tender...
In a medium size bowl mix
6 eggs
1/2 cup romano cheese (grated)
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I use italian)
a little milk (if it gets too thick)
salt and pepper to taste

Pour mixture over potatoes and onions on low/med heat (covered)
when it gets about half way done cut in quarters and flip. Cook until golden brown on bottom.

#2 German Pancake (it's more along the lines of french toast if you ask me)

In a blender blend
6 eggs
1 cup Milk
1 cup Flour
1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbs melted butter

Pour the 2 Tbs of butter on the bottom of a 9x13 pan
Blend egg mixture until completely blended then pour over the butter in pan

Preheat oven to 400 and cook for 20 min

I sometimes sprinkle a sugar/cinnimon mixture on top
My family eats it with syrup

Hope this helps.

I made an error in my directions for Kentucky Chess Pie. The ingredients are correct, but the baking time and temperature were wrong. Do not bake at 350 F for an hour. You will burn the meringue.

Bake at 350 F (180 C) only for the first 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 300 F (150 C) and bake 50 minutes more.
