10 Things to Do With Boiled Easter Eggs
It's a lot of fun to decorated boiled eggs and then hide them around the house for the kids to find along with sweet treats! However, finding something to do with all of those boiled Easter eggs may be a challenge. Depending on how many of them you make, the kids may not want to eat them all.
As a child I ate many many eggs when it came Easter time, because I really liked boiled eggs. I wouldn't eat the yolk though! Nowadays, I know I have to eat the yolk and try to make sure the kids eat the whole egg.
If you are stuck for ideas, feel free take a peek at a few of these ones. I have put together a list of 10 things to do with Easter Eggs! You can incorporate them into different dishes or make them the main item in the creation.
1. Slice in half lengthwise and serve with salt and pepper
2. Deviled Eggs- Peel, then halve 6 boiled eggs, and take the yolks out and put into a bowl. Arrange the egg white halves onto a platter. Mix the yolks with 3 tbsp.mayonnaise, 1 tsp. ranch dressing, 1 tsp. mustard, 1 tsp. minced onion, salt and pepper to taste. Refill the egg white halves with the egg yolk mixture and sprinkle some paprika on top if desired. Feel free to double the recipe if you would like to use a dozen eggs instead.
3. Cobb Salad-chopped iceberg lettuce, topped with pecans, sliced boiled eggs, grated carrot, chopped tomatoes, cooked and sliced chicken breast and bacon. Finish it off by adding your favorite dressing. I prefer ranch for this one!
4. Sliced Egg and Bacon Bagel (throw on some lettuce or sliced tomatoes and mayonnaise, depending on how you like your sandwich)
5. Cut into chunks and add them to Potato Salad
6. Cut into chunks, they can be added to Pasta Salad
7. This is an obvious one, but very popular in my house! Make egg salad sandwiches
8. Spinach Salad- fresh, washed baby spinach topped with chopped tomato, bacon bits and sliced boiled egg. Finish it up with your favorite vinaigrette dressing. My preference is poppy seed vinaigrette for this salad.
9. Toss 2 peeled, whole boiled eggs in a small pot with 1 tbsp. soy sauce, 1 tbsp. of water and a half tbsp. of oil. Stir to coat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve with simple white rice.
10. Pack them for lunch or eat them for a snack. Peeled and plain!
