Is anyone else overwhelmed by the number of leftover hard-boiled Easter eggs? While hard-boiled eggs are a great (quick!), protein-packed snack, those get boring fast. Here are seven super recipes that highlight the humble egg, plus another six ideas for using hard-cooked eggs in new ways.


Classic Egg Salad: A lightened-up version of a classic lunch dish, this is one of our favorite ways to use up leftover Easter eggs.


Deviled Eggs: We lightened up a picnic and potluck favorite! Our secret ingredient (shh, don't tell!) is pickle juice.


Simple Nicoise Salad: Potato salad gets a French twist with chunks of Swiss cheese, bacon, eggs, and a tangy Dijon dressing. Served warm, this salad is a hearty side dish or light lunch.


7 Layer Salad: The classic picnic salad gets a lighter dressing.


Cobb Kebabs (Cobb Salad on a Stick): Turn one of your favorite salads into a portable appetizer, perfect for a spring party or the start to an al fresco supper.


French Potato Salad with Green Beans and Bacon: Potato salad gets a French twist with chunks of Swiss cheese, bacon, eggs, and a tangy Dijon dressing. Served warm, this salad is a hearty side dish or light lunch.


Ham, Egg & Cheese Biscuits: Turn leftover Easter ham and hard-boiled eggs into a tasty breakfast or light lunch. If you have extra biscuits, use those as well!

Other ideas for leftover Easter eggs:

Egg and Cheese Toast: Layer sliced hard-boiled eggs on two slices of whole-wheat bread, then top with shredded cheese. Broil until bubbly and top with spinach and sliced tomatoes, then sandwich the two slices together.

Avocado-Egg Salad: Swap in a mashed avocado for the mayo in your favorite egg salad recipe.

Smoked Salmon Appetizers: Top pumpernickel bread with herbed cream cheese, sliced tomatoes, and sliced hard-boiled egg. Top with a piece of smoked salmon and a sprig of fresh dill.

Lighter Scotch Eggs: Wrap peeled hard-boiled eggs with 2-3 ounces light breakfast sausage, then roll in breadcrumbs. Bake at 375 until the sausage is cooked through, about 30-35 minutes.

Stuffed Meatloaf: Place hard-cooked eggs into the center of your favorite meatloaf recipe and bake as usual.


Buffalo Deviled Eggs: Mash your egg yolks with hot sauce, crumbled blue cheese, chopped green onions, and parsley.
