14 Recipes to Use Up a Basket Full of Hard-Boiled Eggs

March 25, 2016

Jelly beans are fun and Peeps are aces, but everybunny knows the best part about Easter is dyeing eggs. With some coloring tabs and a bit of vinegar (or some all-natural know-how), you can take the ordinary, everyday egg and make it into an edible masterpiece that's at least 12 times fancier than macaroni art.

There's only one problem: Once you've unrolled your sleeves and ditched your leftover dye, you realize you have a basket full of boiled eggs and hardly any clue what to do with them. If you're struggling to hatch a plan for your boiled batch, here are 14 dishes that make imaginative use of hard-boiled eggs.

Day after Easter egg salad sandwiches. Somehow the dye always seeps through to the eggs enough to get a funny pastel colored egg salad....

My favourite is a very basic comfort food. I'd lose my mind anytime my mother would make these for lunch (best dipped in a really lovely chicken noodle soup!)
Tuna salad + chopped hard-boiled eggs + onion, plus whatever spice/chopped veg mix suits your tastes, broiled on a bun or roll.
