Grrrr... allergies are frustrating. The significant delay of the hives is hopeful. Keep us posted.

How much baked egg did he ultimately consume?

The recipe called for 2 large eggs and made 6 muffins.  He ate one.

Has he ever mentioned the random hives before?  Oy, what a worry.

He said that he does get random hives sometimes....but is he just saying that bc he sos wants to eat baked egg?  It was 3 hives and only one was itchy.  He didn't know he had one behind his ear....I emailed the woman who helped schedule the challenge.  I am sure she will put me in touch with the allergist who was in charge.

She responded that she does not think it was from the baked egg but would check with the allergist.  Fingers crossed.

That was a large dose of egg!  Most recipes I have seen call for 1 egg over 12 muffins or 16 brownies or whatever, which is a much smaller dose.  (Not for a challenge, but in regular cookbooks.) At least that part is promising. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you and him.

I make muffins every week, and my recipe for 12 calls for two eggs, so yeah, that's a high dose. Maybe you can start out that way?

I am just now seeing about DD--which answers the question I had in WAYDT. Hmm. That's a bit of a conundrum for dosing. 
 What are your thoughts? Just make muffins for DS for dosing when DD isn't home?
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

Yes, Mac, Iíd make muffins while DD is at school.  I just heard back from the allergist.  She does not think the few hives were related but suggested 1/2 a muffin today and then back to the full muffin the next day if there are no issues.

He ate 1/2 a muffin 2 hours ago and is totally fine.  Weíve been calling him down for skin checks every 30 minutes or so.

How would you cook them, though?  A toaster would then be contaminated with egg for your DD.  In the overnight on a baking sheet?
