What to Do With All of Those Leftover Easter Eggs

The champagne is chilled, brunch is baking away, and all of the Easter eggs have been sufficiently hidden. All you need now is a party with your loved ones, and it’ll be a contender for The Best Easter Ever!

But what do you do when the party is over, and you’re stuck in the kitchen with a overflowing recycling bin, dirty plates, and the most challenging leftover ever: a zillion colorful, hard-boiled eggs? Maybe you have a family tradition that includes throwing them at each other, or eating them for breakfast every day until they’re gone. Those are both great ideas, but what if we got a little more creative?

4 Ways to Use Up Leftover Hard-Boiled Eggs from Easter

1. Deviled Eggs

Okay, I know I said that we would get creative and this is the most generic, obvious solution to an abundance of hard-boiled eggs – but hear me out. I encourage you to take your deviled eggs above in beyond – both in flavor as well as appearance. The eggs are already dyed every shade of the rainbow – why not capitalize on it?

This tray from 10 Strawberry Street will make your technicolor eggs look like galactic space hors d’oeuvres. You could even take things a step further and add some red or blue food coloring to your deviled egg mixture to great vibrant orange and green highlights! Pick up this tray with one of our HSN promo codes and you could save 15% or more on this cute, reusable tray!

2. Amp up your breakfast

Did you know that eggs are often called “the perfect protein?” It’s the least expensive protein you can buy at the store, by weight, and it also comes along with tons of nutrients and healthy fats. Plus, it comes in a super-convenient package, perfect for taking on the go! This makes hard-boiled Easter eggs the perfect, complete breakfast.

They also make excellent morning, pre-workout food. If you’ve been looking to step up your workout game, combine your bevy of eggs with a sweet personal nutrition plan (we have coupons for Shredz, which could save you up to 60% on your order). This will fuel you for the entire morning, without all of those frustrating sugar crashed and caffeine dives.

3. Potato Salad

Easter eggs? In a potato salad? Don’t knock it ’til you try it! Potatoes and eggs are a match made in heaven when they’re in a breakfast skillet, and that marriage translates beautifully into summertime’s most popular picnic salad.

You can use basically the same ingredients as you do in deviled eggs as a dressing for your potato salad, and I assume you, you will be adding this “recipe” to your recipe box!

4. Egg Salad Sandwiches

Remember how terrible these were when you were young? Egg salad sandwiches always got an “ew!” response from classmates, but now that you’re an adult, you have full control over how delicious and impressive your egg salad sandwiches are. Just look at this masterpiece from Pinterest:

Adding some extra vegetables like microgreens, cucumber, chives or onion can turn a historically sloppy, bland sandwich into a gourmet lunch.
