Easter is over and if you’re like my mom you bought 8 dozen eggs and don’t know what to do with them (besides generously give a couple dozen to your daughter). Maybe you didn’t buy 8 dozen but you still have a good amount leftover. While I have eggs every day and am not near getting sick of them, I know some of us just need variety in how eggs are enjoyed. I’ve pulled together a few ideas that will hopefully give you some relief.

Egg Salad
Roughly chop a half dozen eggs then add cracked pepper and enough mayo & mustard to moisten. Serve in a wrap or use bell peppers as spoons to scoop the salad like you would chips & dip. This super simple dish is making an appearance in our lunch this week! If you want an extra shot of protein you can add a can of tuna to the mix. I make my egg salad extra creamy by adding ripe avocado.

Also known as prettier egg salad. After peeling your eggs, cut them in half and gently scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Add enough mayo to the yolks so that you get a smooth creamy mixture. Spoon the mixture into a sandwich-size ziploc bag, seal shut, and cut the tip off the end of the bag. Squeeze the mixture out into the egg white halves. If you want to get fancy you can use the frosting tips that have cute designs! Top your deviled eggs with a variety of toppings: bacon, paprika, asparagus bits, chives…

Salad toppers
Not much else to be said here. Slice up some eggs and make a nice cobb salad, chef salad, whatever salad. Go Bubba Gump on this one.

Mini breakfast pizzas
Top a whole wheat English muffin with tomato, sliced egg, and mozzarella. Broil in the oven until the cheese bubbles & the muffin edges are golden.

Open faced sandwich
Top a slice of toasted pumpernickel or rye bread with a mixture of finely chopped eggs mixed with mayo and then top with smoked salmon.

Pickled eggs
Don’t knock ’em till you try ’em.

What are you doing with your leftover eggs?
