How long do eggs freeze?

I accidentally froze some eggs whole in their shells (long story from sleepless nights of newborn twins ;)) and it didn’t go well. In fact, they crack and the eggs are ruined. Talk about throwing money away!
So… How do you freeze eggs?
1. Crack your eggs and scramble the yolks and the egg whites together. Then you can freeze them into freezer bags. Some people even freeze one scrambled eggs into ice cube treys. Then once frozen you can place them in a freezer bag, so you can pull out on the amount you need.
My Personal favorite way is to freeze one egg in the an ice cube tray. Once frozen, just place them in a freezer bag. Then if you are making cupcakes and need three eggs, you know exactly how many you have. 🙂
