5 delicious recipes for those leftover Easter eggs–or Passover eggs

Leftover egg recipes: egg salad sandwichWhether you’re hosting a seder or awaiting the Easter bunny, one thing’s for sure: you’re about to be knee deep in hard-boiled eggs. Recipe alert!

Here are 5 deliciously clever ideas for enjoying all of those eggs, once they’ve completed their job on your holiday table, of course.

1. Make a gourmet egg salad sandwich like
the one pictured above by Brown Eyed Baker, which comes to life with
dijon mustard and a bit of lemon juice. It’s the classic solution for
leftover eggs with good reason. For another sandwich idea, try this
sliced egg and cornichon sandwich instead.

Hard boiled egg recipes: North Indian egg curry

2. Spices plus tomato puree make a shockingly delicious and easy-to-cook curry sauce for hard boiled eggs. I love this North Indian Egg Curry by Andrea Nguyen, made with extra cilantro and a squeeze of lime. 

Hard boiled egg recipes: Umami eggs
3. These Umami Eggs by
Sarah of The Delicious Life are a perfect snack or light dinner,
nestled in a bowl of rice. Especially if you killed your appetite eating
chocolate bunnies. What exactly are umami eggs, you ask? Let’s just say
that you hardly need a recipe–just 4 ingredients, and that includes
the eggs.

Leftover egg recipes: cobb salad
4. Get out your best chopping knife and create a Classic Cobb Salad
like this one from Guilty Kitchen. With bacon, egg, avocado, veggies
and more bacon (you know, for good measure), you can’t really go wrong. 

Leftover egg recipes: spring salad with crumbled egg
5. For something a little lighter, adapt this Spring Salad with Basil Vinaigrette and Crumbled Egg
by substituting asparagus (very easy) for the fava beans (not so easy).
Unless of course you’re feeling ambitious. You will have a long
weekend, after all.  – Stacie
Psst…hard boiled eggs last about a week refrigerated, not so long if they’re left out at room temperature. So the closer to the holiday you can make them, the more chance you’ll have to get to enjoy them. And don’t eat the cracked ones!
