How to Freeze Scrambled Eggs

By LeafTV Contributor

Freezing is an excellent method to maintain food's freshness for use at a later date. If food isn't sealed properly before freezing, it can form freezer burn; freezer burn gives food an off-taste and rubbery texture. Frozen items last about four months, but should be checked on a monthly basis. Use airtight containers and plastic bags to prevent any air from entering. By both bagging and using a container to hold the food, the odds of freezer burn are decreased.
