    Default Question re: freezing hardboiled eggs

    My wife has made a kedgeree - which has hard boiled eggs in it - and
    wants to know if the extra can be frozen with the hard boiled eggs
    left in. IOW - what happens to pieces of HBE's once they're frozen?

    Not recommended to freeze them.

    Q. Can you freeze freshly cooked hard-boiled eggs?

    A. You won't like the result. The water in the egg white moves about and
    crystallizes when it freezes, altering the structure, so that when the
    egg is thawed, the white is both watery and rubbery.

    You can freeze the yolk, however, and, once thawed, crumble it on salads
    or use it for a garnish. But it won't have the smooth, almost pat-like
    texture one finds in a freshly hard-boiled egg.

    In either case, freezing is not really the highest and best use of a
    hard-cooked egg.

    Hard-boiled egg white is like tofu in that freezing and thawing causes it to
    become spongy. But sometimes you WANT a spongy texture, especially if the
    ingredient in question is pretty much tasteless (which is the case both with
    tofu and hard-boiled egg whites) but will be surrounded by a tasty sauce
    which it can soak up. In the case of kedgeree, it's pretty much a matter of
    personal taste whether freezing would be a good thing or not. If you prefer
    the kedgeree with firm egg whites which have little taste, then freezing is
    not recommended. If you're okay with a flabbier texture but greater sauce
    absorption, then freezing would be a good thing.

    Freeze them with liquid nitrogen to minimize ice crystal growth and size
    and they might stand a chance. Same principle as the Dippin Dots ice
    cream.

    They get hard. :-) And the whites toughen. I wouldn't.
    From the American Egg Board: Hard-cooked eggs
    You can freeze hard-cooked egg yolks to use later for toppings or
    garnishes. Carefully place the yolks in a single layer in a saucepan and
    add enough water to come at least 1 inch above the yolks. Cover and
    quickly bring just to boiling. Remove the pan from the heat and let the
    yolks stand, covered, in the hot water about 15 minutes. Remove the
    yolks with a slotted spoon, drain them well and package them for
    freezing.

    It's best not to freeze hard-cooked whole eggs and hard-cooked whites
    because they become tough and watery when frozen.

    But, but, that's about freezing unadulterated hard cooked eggs... that
    doesn't adress the OP's question; freezing hard cooked eggs _in a
    dish_;

    I have heaps of Liquid Nitrogen here
    So I tried it out.

    Advice = Don't freeze hard boiled eggs -tuned out horrible and
    tasted worse
