5 Creative Uses for Leftover Easter Eggs

Post-Easter, many of us find ourselves with a fridge full of brightly colored hard-boiled eggs, wondering what to do with them. Instead of letting them sit untouched or, worse, throwing them away, let’s get creative! There are plenty of fun and delicious ways to use up those leftover Easter eggs. Here's how you can turn them into tasty meals:

1. Egg Salad Sandwiches: Transform those leftover eggs into a classic egg salad. Chop the eggs and mix them with Greek yogurt and/or mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. I love including smoked paprika as well. Add some chopped celery or onion for a crunch. Serve the salad on your favourite bread with lettuce and tomatoes for a satisfying lunch.

2. Deviled Eggs with a Twist: Give a new flavor to the traditional deviled eggs. Halve the eggs and mix the yolks with ingredients like avocado, bacon, or even a dash of hot sauce. This twist on a classic can make a delicious snack or an appetizing side dish for any meal.

3. Breakfast Burritos: Start your morning with a protein-packed breakfast burrito. Slice or chop the hard-boiled eggs and wrap them in a tortilla with cheese, sautéed vegetables, and your choice of breakfast meat. It’s a hearty and nutritious way to kickstart your day.

4. Salad Toppers: Enhance your salads by adding sliced or chopped hard-boiled eggs. They complement green salads, potato salads, or even a chef's salad, adding texture and protein. This simple addition turns a side salad into a filling meal.

5. Ramen or Soup Enhancer: Elevate your soup or ramen game by topping it with halved hard-boiled eggs. They add richness and depth to brothy soups and noodle dishes, making each spoonful more satisfying and flavorful.

Leftover Easter eggs don’t have to be a post-holiday nuisance. With a little creativity, they can be transformed into delicious dishes that extend the festive joy. These five ideas are just the beginning of what you can do with those extra eggs, so get creative and enjoy every last bit of your Easter treats!
