If your meal prep game is fully on point, you’ll want to make sure that you have a stash of frozen scrambled eggs in your freezer. They’re so simple to reheat and it means you have ONE less decision to make tomorrow morning. You’re welcome world!
Scrambled eggs are a standard part of breakfast for me. Healthy and packed with protein, they’ll keep you full for hours. I love to top mine with Cilantro Chimichurri and serve alongside bacon that has been baked in the oven, on top of Fried Cabbage With Bacon, or with spicy Encurtido.
Can You Freeze Scrambled Eggs?
Yes, absolutely! You can freeze them on their own for quick reheat meals, or as part of a dish like in Vegetarian Breakfast Burritos.
How Long Can You Keep Scrambled Eggs in the Freezer?
You can store them for three to six months as long as you’re using an air-tight container. I prefer these reusable silicone bags because they are infinitely reusable, dishwasher safe, and keep the eggs protected from freezer burn.
How to Freeze Scrambled Eggs
I’ll walk you through it here with a few photos, but you’ll also find a detailed and printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
You’ll start by making scrambled eggs your favorite way. I used this recipe for Make-Ahead Scrambled Eggs. Make sure you undercook them just a tiny bit. This will help keep them soft and awesome when you defrost them later. Allow the eggs to cool for 10-15 minutes.
My favorite method with freezing scrambled eggs is to use parchment cupcake liners in a muffin tin. A standard tin will hold about 3 oz per section. Depending on how you make your scrambled eggs, that means each section will hold two eggs worth.
Distribute the eggs in the muffin tin and gently press them down with the back of a spoon. Freeze uncovered for three hours. Once frozen, pop each “egg puck” out of the tin and transfer to freezer-safe storage (like these silicone freezer bags).
How Do You Reheat Frozen Scrambled Eggs?
The easiest way is to use the microwave. To reheat from frozen, microwave for 30 seconds and then break up the eggs a bit with a fork and cook for another 30 seconds.
I will keep 2-3 scrambled egg “pucks” in glass storage in the fridge. I microwave thawed eggs for 30 seconds.
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes
- Don’t salt your eggs until after they have finished cooking. Pre-salting causes them to release extra moisture and can result in gummy eggs.
- If possible, use parchment muffin liners. They’re the same price as regular liners, they’re compostable, and the eggs will not stick to them.
- If you can’t use a muffin tin, place some parchment or waxed paper on a plate or rimmed baking sheet and portion out the eggs so that they’re in small servings and not touching. Freeze and then transfer to storage. You can also use silicone egg molds like what we use for Instant Pot Egg Bites.
