Egge is a former municipality in what was Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. The 51-square-kilometre (20 sq mi) municipality existed from 1869 until 1964. It included the land just north of the town of Steinkjer in what is now the municipality of Steinkjer in Trøndelag county. The small municipality was south of the lake Snåsavatnet, west of the lake Fossemvatnet, and east of Beitstad. The main church for the municipality was Egge Church, just north of the town of Steinkjer.
The parish of Egge was established as a municipality on 1 January 1869 when it was separated from the large municipality of Stod. Initially, Egge had a population of 941. In 1948, a small part of Egge (population: 70) was transferred to the neighboring town of Steinkjer.
During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, a large merger took place: the neighboring municipalities of Beitstad (population: 2,563), Egge (population: 3,476), Kvam (population: 1,245), Ogndal (population: 2,678), Sparbu (population: 4,027), and Stod (population: 1,268) were all merged with the town of Steinkjer (population: 4,325) to form the new municipality of Steinkjer.
