    I personally don't celebrate Easter, but when I crave eggs or need them for a recipe, I always end up buying too many and don't always know how to use them or even if they're still okay to use. Thanks for solving both dilemas for me at the same time! - 4/21/2009   9:15:17 PM

    I love eggs. I love them hard-boiled after a work out with a bit of salt! So...we don't have a problem using up the easter eggs! Thank you for some new ideas though. - 4/21/2009   3:58:50 PM

    OMG- I discovered a really cool way to get rid of all the hard boiled eggs here in Sweden- Make a 'mushroom garden' (there is a Swedish word for it, but I didn't catch it). On a bed of cooked spinach on a platter, cut off the bottom and top of your hard boiled eggs (peeled of course) and arrange them on the platter. Using the curved sides of tomatoes (not the flat slices) top the hard-boiled bases. Then top these with a little bit of onion to give them the cute little mushroom effect! These are ridiculously cute!!! - 4/16/2009   3:27:36 AM

    I thought this was an eggceptionally good egg article. Doesn't everybody use left over Easter eggs for devilled eggs or is that just the corny people from the midwest - like me? - 4/16/2009   12:28:53 AM

    We reuse plastic eggs each year, so no extra eggs here! But egg recipes are good anyway. =) - 4/14/2009   5:46:57 PM

    I enjoy to process of finding uses for hard boiled eggs at Easter. This year I improvised at my daughter's request. She had me watch her boys while she and hubby went on a mini honeymoon. There was left over barbacued chicken and some left over rice in the frig To the cold rice we added saute'd onion, Fried rice seasoning, chicken meat, and eggs minced with a pastry cutter. There were a few peas, (my grandsons think they don't like veggies). It was a great dinner for all of us. Try it sometime. - 4/14/2009   2:44:19 PM

    I've been adding the hard boiled egg whites to my daily salad to give it a little more protein, yummy for my tummy and I get the benefit of the egg white without the downfall of the egg yolk. - 4/14/2009   12:22:06 PM

    I love eggs, I have begun to use egg beaters, but usually add 1 whole egg to scrambled eggs and omelets. I have always liked egg salad sandwiches, I now use fat free or low fat Miracle Whip. Good protein and tasty. Sliced hard boiled egg in a salad is good too. - 4/13/2009   7:23:57 PM

    My Mom made deviled eggs out of pickled eggs, I don't know how they tasted because I don't like pickled eggs but they all got eaten. - 4/13/2009   3:39:27 PM

    Deviled with cayenne pepper!!!!! I wonder if you can make deviled eggs with pickled eggs??? I may have to try that!!! - 4/13/2009   3:09:50 PM

    There are no leftover hard boiled eggs here thank goodness! I did make egg salad a few days ago because I had a taste for it. Now I'm craving a scrambled egg sandwich with ketchup. Let's not bring up the subject of eggs again for a while please? I think the season has blown them out of proportion! - 4/13/2009   2:16:56 PM

    I think I have been told my cholesterol is high, so I really haven't had a chance to enjoy egg salad much. But while visiting Ethiopia, it was popular there to have 2 sliced boiled eggs on a french slice with a little mayo. I translated it at home with a small thin wheat cracker (like Wheatabix), and substituted the mayo for relish. It was quite good actually! - 4/13/2009   12:06:50 PM

    So many great pieces of information pulled together in this one article!! This is the best Egg article I have ever read. Once again, SparkPeople has outdone itself with its savy writers and staffers! Guess we'll have to get rid of all those beautifully-colored eggs that we made last weekend, just to be on the safe side.

    I eat boiled eggs almost daily for breakfast or lunch because they ARE a portable low-carb and satisfying edible. Love the blog--need new ideas always. And lighten up on the assonance/aliteration debate! It's a blog and that means first-draft thinking! - 4/12/2009   7:09:42 PM

    This is a great article. Thank You for the information on EGGS, this is good to know. My MOM best way to know if a egg was spoil was put the egg in some water and if the egg flow up to the top it is bad.

    HAPPY EASTER ALL!!! - 4/12/2009   5:51:40 PM

    Yay! We have chickens and right now they are laying constantly! Thanks for all the ideas.

    To the previous posters:

    She did use alliteration. Assonance and consonance are both examples of alliteration. - 4/12/2009   11:34:27 AM
