Even though the Just company doesn’t recommend it, you can freeze Just Egg just fine (see what we did there?), and neither you nor the Just Egg will suffer any ill effects. Now, to be clear, we are talking about bottles of Just Egg, the kind that you find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. Just Egg does also put out a frozen, precooked product, called Just Egg Folded, that you pop in the toaster and then put on a sandwich; that’s not what we are talking about here – we’re talking about the original, liquid Just Egg.
Now, to be clear, here is what Just says in the Just Egg FAQ about freezing liquid Just Egg: “JUST Egg is a refrigerated product, and we do not recommend freezing it. JUST Egg Folded and JUST Egg Sous Vide are frozen products and should be kept frozen until ready to use.”
Wait, did they say “JUST Egg Sous Vide”? They did indeed, although in fact what the Just Egg Sous Vide product is really is a box of egg bites made with Just Egg. And guess what, you can make those yourself (as have we, for ages) using either of our two vegan egg bite recipes, Vegan Instant Pot Egg Bites and Vegan Meatball-Stuffed Egg Bites.
On the other hand, if you want some yummy (and easy!) gluten-free, vegan sous vide recipes, we’ve got you covered there as well!
But we digress, the point is that you can freeze Just Egg, and we offer here 3 ways to do it.
How to Freeze Just Egg
When we say that we are going to give you three ways to freeze your liquid Just Egg, we mean three ways to store it in the freezer, not three different methods for getting it frozen, such as 1. stick it in the freezer, 2. immerse it in liquid nitrogen, 3. stick it in a snow bank. We assume that you have a freezer, and that you want to put the Just Egg in your freezer.
Here are our three ways of freezing Just Egg, from our least favorite to our most favorite.
1. Stick the Unopened Bottle in the Freezer
The first one is the easiest going in, but the most difficult coming out of the freezer. This is to just stick the unopened bottle of Just Egg in the freezer. You can do that; plenty of people do, and so far as we know nobody has had a bottle explode (or split open) from expansion in the freezer. However, the downside to this is that a) it takes the longest to thaw, and b) then you have to use up an entire bottle of Just Egg before it goes bad. That’s why we prefer the next two methods.
2. Pour the Just Egg into Ice Cube Trays
Our second method (and middle favorite of the three) is to pour the Just Egg into ice cube trays, freeze it, and then put it in an airtight container in the freezer. We actually use the accessory port on our vacuum sealer (this is the vacuum sealer we use, in case you’re interested – we tried several and this is the one that had everything we wanted and that worked the best, and it’s been going strong for a number of years) with these canisters, but the canisters seem to have gotten really pricey, and these ones seem similar, and for a third of the price.
Frozen Just Egg Cubes
The nice thing about this method is that you can take out as many cubes as you need; our ice cube trays hold about a tablespoon of liquid in each hollow (with headroom for expansion), and as it happens an average egg is about 3 tablespoons in volume, and that’s also the amount that Just says is a serving.
3. Tupperware Midgets
This is our favorite method of all. We love Tupperware Midgets (they look like slightly big shot glasses with lids). Each Midget holds 3 tablespoons of Just Egg with room for expansion (they hold a total of 4 tablespoons if you fill them to the tippy-top), and they have lines around them at the 1, 2, and 3 tablespoon level mark so that it’s really easy to pour the Just Egg into each one and get 3 tablespoons every time. Just pop them in the freezer and you have premeasured 3-tablespoon servings! And because the lids go on air- and water-tight, you can even plop them in warm water to hasten the thawing process, if you need to! You can find Tupperware Midgets on eBay, or you can even buy them new on Amazon here.
And that is how you freeze Just Egg!

If I wanted to meal prep (JUST) egg muffins, do you think method 2 and/or 3 would work with cooked veggies mixed in frozen with the uncooked JUST egg?
Or do you recommend cooking the muffin and THEN freezing?
Thank you! This post was very helpful 🙂
Hi Kay! We wouldn’t recommend freezing the liquid Just Egg with vegetables (whether cooked vegetables or raw). So if it were us we’d cook the whole thing and then freeze, if we were going to go that route at all. But really, we’d buy the Just Egg Folded instead (those are the precooked Just Egg patties that you pop in the toaster to heat up), because we’re lazy that way. 🙂
What about cooking all of the unopened passed date Just Egg product up, then portion…and then let get room temp and freeze individual portions??! Whoo!..😜 Wheels are turning, I’m hungry…for some Sunday brunch..ready. Lol 🤣
Hey Wen! If you try that let us know how it works! ❤️
Hi Aya! We don’t know if you can use the dehydrator option of your air fryer, each air fryer is different – try it and let us know how it works out! As for why not to use a sheet in the dehydrator, it’s because you want all of the sides of the cubes to be exposed to the warmth and fan of the dehydrator evenly, the sheet blocks that.
I froze the bottled type of just eggs and I thawed it out in the refrigerator for 2 days. They turned out great! I just would like to know if it extends the expiration date on the bottle if it is frozen. Thanks!
We really can’t say, but as freezing things generally does, we would think so. But again, we really can’t say.
How do you thaw the ice cubes for use? Can you throw one, frozen, into a pan? Do you think instead of a vacuum thingy, a covered ice cube tray would work? Thank you!
We actually just let them thaw in a small bowl at room temperature or, if we’re in a hurry, on very low power in the microwave. You could try the covered ice cube tray, the thing is that you don’t want any ice crystals to be able to form on the cubes, and also in our experience if exposed to moisture in the freezer they get kind of icky. :~(
Thanks for the info, I did the whole bottle the one time I froze it and then had to use the whole bottle when I opened it. I like the idea of the using the midgets.
Thank you for the information! Most helpful.😁
Generally speaking it’s unwise to thaw, open, and then refreeze something. Also it often changes the texture of something to be frozen again once thawed.
Just curious – why is it necessary to use an entire bottle of Just Egg after the bottle has been frozen? Thank you.
you don’t have to ,but you should use it sooner rather than later once you open it.
