When Easter is done and the egg hunt is over you may be wondering what to do with all those hard-boiled eggs. If you don’t want to eat them plain, I have some recipes to help you use up those hard-boiled eggs before they get old. If you peel hard-boiled eggs, they should be eaten that same day. But, if you leave them in the shell, they will keep, refrigerated, for up to one week.
In Salads – Slice or dice up an egg and toss them in a salad. It’s a good way to use them up and get the nutrition you need along with those leafy greens.
Egg Salad Sandwich – Mash up a hard-boiled egg with some mayo. Add it to your favorite bread or bun for a delicious sandwich.
Macaroni Salad – This is one of my family’s favorite side dish. Dice up some hard-boiled eggs and add them to the macaroni salad for a great taste.
Breakfast Sandwiches – Serve up a hearty breakfast by slicing up some eggs and adding them to a breakfast burrito or make an egg and cheese biscuit.
Deviled Eggs – A great way to fill up for a snack anytime of the day. There are many varieties of deviled eggs you can make including the Bacon Ranch Tomato Deviled Eggs recipe listed below.
