Just got back from camping, first time taking eggs. I put and dozen and half in the original cardboard container in the cooler, just kept it on top and had no problems.

I put eggs in a round rubbermaid container. Hold 6 eggs, just perfect size for me. No water in the rubbermaid yet.

If I'm making brownies, in the bowl I put the required eggs removed from the shell and the measured oil all in one container.

Same with pancakes.

Works like a charm. 8)


I do something similar, but I put single use quantities into different sizes of Gladware. Three eggs for breakfast in one container, eggs for a recipe in another, etc. The yolks have not broken on me, yet. And, I can shake the container if I want scrambled eggs.

I do the large farm raised brown eggs from under the hens nest in my chicken house at home, in the red and yellow camping contaners. No problem and no broke eggs.

Theres really no need to keep eggs cool or refreigrated. I have seen them go for weeks out in the open sitting on a shelf at cowcamp in the big horn moutains with no spoliage.

Of course though we were eating 2 to 3 eggs a day, every moring after we got our horses saddled. My thoughts. slowcowboy.
Plans. there was supposed to be plans to be followed when I built this thing. Opps! AH, gee, tum,tee tum. I think I forgot about the plans 2 years ago. ------Tow vehicles, 1995 ford explore, 1994 ford ranger, 1993 ford F-150, 2009 4x9 Off road teardrop, on harbor freight greatly modified frame.

That may be true with eggs straight from the bird; but, most of us get our eggs from a store. Who knows how long or under what conditions those eggs have been stored and transported. For all we know, store eggs may already be weeks old. :roll:

How many have left eggs out until they dried up in the shell?

Now that I am retired, I want to learn to make Ukranian style eggs. Would rather not blow them. I've read you can let them just dry up. But do they smell?

I'm with the folks that say keep the eggs in the styrofoam cartons they come in from the store.

Of course, if you use eggs for omlets, you could always put them in baggies before you leave, sans shell. When they come out of the bag, after cooking of course, they could look like this...

Yes, that OK Jewel's omlet in a bag recipe! ;)

We did OKJ's omelet-in-a-baggie omelets at a gathering. It was fun, and they were pretty good, but I like my omelets cooked in a pan -- with real butter.

Waking up on a cool morning in the woods, and eating some eggs cooked in butter with some bacon and strong black coffee. YUM!

Well now you can just take a couple live chickens with you and eat eggs as they lay them :rofl2: If they don't produce then it's a chicken dinner :thumbsup:
