Looking for party/finger-food recipes that use eggs

Due to a series of odd events, I find myself in possession of several cartons of eggs, way more than I will be able to eat over the next week or so. Coincidentally, I will be going to a party on Friday and have agreed to contribute to the "finger-food only" buffet. I have a decent recipe for basic deviled eggs, but what else can I make that can be picked up and eaten without the use of utensils? I'm a decent intermediate cook, and have access to most ingredients. Both savory or sweet suggestions would be most welcome, as would recipes that don't particularly "feature" the eggs, so long as they get used up. Bonus points for things that can be made today or tomorrow and served on Friday night, although I will have most of the day on Friday to cook if necessary.

Eggy coffee, egad!

Putting an egg in your coffee: is this a thing? In Havana the other day I acquired the Us Two Cook Book, by Jennie B. Williams, published in Toronto in 1924. The recipe for "COFFEE" begins "For each cup of water allow one heaping dessert-spoonful of finely ground coffee; put coffee in mixing bowl; add one egg (or half egg)..." [more inside]

can i eat it: grey pickled eggs

I made some pickled eggs for the first time. I just opened the jar, and: all of the eggs are varying shades of greyish- brownish. Most of them still have white spots and stripes. They smell fine (for hardboiled eggs soaked in vinegar I mean), but will I die if I eat them?

Are these eggs safe to eat?

I thawed a chicken in the refrigerator and it leaked uncooked chicken juice all over the shelf. The cardboard egg carton full of eggs that was also on the shelf is now fully saturated with raw chicken juice. Can raw eggs in their shell absorb liquids like raw chicken juice? Are the eggs safe to eat? Even if soft boiled or fried over easy?

Six-legged does an inverse Houdini

[Animals-in-unexpected-places-filter] This morning, preparing breakfast, we found an earwig INSIDE AN EGG. How did it get there? Egg was laid in the past couple of days by one of our chickens in the back yard. Shell was intact. Earwig was dead, somewhat bloated (from being in the egg white for too long I guess). [more inside]
