There’s nothing more fun than dyeing Easter eggs and hiding them. But once the kids find them, what are you to do with 20
hard-boiled eggs? My co-worker Carolyn hates to waste food so she suggested these recipes for hard-boiled eggs as well as
other yummy egg recipes
. Why throw
those brightly colored, yet perfectly good eggs away when they could be turned into lunch or even dinner? Not me.
Here are a few recipes that can use hard-boiled Easter eggs:
EatingWell Deviled Eggs
: Deviled eggs are a
perennial potluck favorite. Our recipe replaces some of the egg yolks with nonfat cottage cheese—keeping the filling velvety
and rich while reducing some of the fat. No one will know the difference.
: Don’t let the name intimidate you. This
delicious take on the Swedish “savory sandwich torte” is sure to please family and guests alike. We’ve transformed this
traditional smoked-fish dish into a light layered sandwich that captures the essence of Scandinavia. Make it a meal: Serve
with a beet salad or steamed red potatoes.
Spring Salad with Tarragon
: A bold, layered salad that showcases sardines and asparagus, this beautiful dish adds variety to your
weekday dining. If you prefer tuna to sardines or have fish from the night before, go ahead and use that instead.
: In the Provencal dialect, "pan bagna" means "moist
bread." In this lightened version of the classic Mediterranean sandwich, a filling of hard-boiled eggs is seasoned with
pungent black olives, mustard and a subtle hint of anchovy. For a truly great sandwich, use the best-quality bread you can
Loaded Spinach Salad
: Like many spinach salads,
this one features lots of chopped-up hard-boiled egg. But since most of the calories in an egg are in the yolk, we use just
two whole eggs, plus the whites from six additional eggs. The result is a rich, eggy, satisfying spinach salad that keeps the
calories in check.
