Are Cracked Eggs Safe to Use or Freeze?
Is it safe to use or store eggs that have been recently cracked? Yes! We'll tell you how.
Use Cracked Eggs
If you've accidentally cracked an egg, you can still use it later -- just pour the egg into a container, seal, and store in the refrigerator for up to four days. But if you purchased eggs that were already cracked, do not use them; throw them away. Separated egg whites can be safely frozen for a year, but separated egg yolks can not be frozen. You can freeze whole eggs by beating the egg whites and yolks together and freezing in a sealed container -- these will also last for up to one year.
