9 Ways to Turn Hardboiled Eggs into Dinner

April  6, 2015

It's been said before, but we're saying it again: Hard boiled eggs are one of the simplest and most filling foods when we're on-the-go. Boil half-a-dozen on Sunday, and you have breakfast all week, a late afternoon snack when your salad lunch doesn't cut it, and the perfect filler for a not-quite-complete pantry dinner.

And this past weekend, you were swimming in them—each adorned beautifully with pastels, patterns, and hints of Pollock, and displayed proudly for praise from the Easter Bunny. But after that last slice of ham is eaten, each treat-laden basket properly pillaged, and all of your candy colored guests departed, your Easter eggs, ever faithful, will still be there. They'll also still be edible. Here are 9 recipes to help make the best out of your leftover hard boiled eggs:

Boil half a dozen and you have breakfast for the week? One egg doesn't seem like a sufficient breakfast...
