Leftovers : Hard Boiled Eggs

Easter has come and gone and you have more boiled eggs then you know what to do with, what can you make with all these eggs? Try to use them up in as many different ways as you can. You can use the shells from your eggs for the sidewalk chalk featured on page 12. Here are some tips to get you started:

Asparagus is often served with chopped boiled egg, parsley and butter sauce. :

Make a casserole from mashed potatoes, cheese and leftover hard cooked eggs. Butter a casserole dish and layer potatoes, cheese and boiled eggs, then finish by covering with plain yogurt. Top with bread or cracker crumbs and bake until it’s heated through, 20 – 30 minutes.

Make hot pickled eggs by using the liquid from a jar or jalapenos or other hot pickles.

Make a chip dip with leftover eggs by creaming six of them with 8 ounces of cream cheese and a quarter cup of sour cream or plain yogurt in your food processor or blender. Add bacon bits or chives, onions or whatever you prefer. It’s good with salsa mixed into it.

Cut up leftover hard cooked eggs and add to meatloaf’s of any kind – or for a surprise, put a whole egg or two (or three) in the center of a meatloaf.

Put leftover eggs in liquid leftover from pickled beets and leave them in the refrigerator for a week or so. They’re yummy and pretty pickled this way!

Pasta salad makes use of boiled eggs and you can use ham and other Easter dinner leftovers in it. Try celery, olives, minced sweet pickles and/or minced carrots.

Potato salad always goes over well. Use a few more boiled eggs than you would otherwise.

Deviled eggs, of course. Recipes include vinegar and mayonnaise, mustard and salad dressings, or dream up your own.

Make tuna/egg salad for sandwiches. Chop leftover hard cooked eggs into tuna and add pickles, cheese, onion and mayonnaise or mustard.
