If you celebrate Easter, there's a good chance you have a dozen (or two) rainbow-hued hard-boiled eggs in your refrigerator right now, waiting to get eaten—sooner rather than later.
(And if that's not the case, you, too, can eat hard-boiled eggs all week long: Here's how to hard cook lots of eggs at once.)
No matter how many hard-cooked eggs you have on hand, we've got you covered with 3 dozen ideas for using them in meals this week. I recommend finding a partner for egg tapping (known in my family as "egg wars") to make the cracking and peeling part more fun and not to worry if the eggs themselves end up being a little rainbow-hued, too.
Pile your egg salad on toast, in a sandwich, or on a bed of greens.
Leafy green salads are better with more stuff—add an extra egg. (Where a recipe calls for a soft-boiled egg, a hard-cooked one will work just as well.)
Any salad that includes hard-boiled eggs (even potato salad) definitely counts as a main dish.
Slice up your eggs and add them to all manner of sandwiches.
Your hard-boiled egg halves want to float in soups and saucy dishes.
Hard-cooked eggs add texture to spreads and sauces for smearing on crackers and spooning over fish or vegetables.
Give those eggs a creamy belly, flavored in any number of ways.
