I don’t know about you, but I’m just not a fan of candy egg hunts; we avoid them like the plague. I guess that makes me an Easter Grinch. But I’m standing firm on this one.
Instead, we carefully boil and then color a bunch of eggs and scatter them around the yard for our little bunnies to collect. It’s a beautiful, low-key, family ritual that I have loved passing on to my boys.
My only problem is: what to do with the dozen or so hard-boiled eggs that are left over? My husband isn’t a fan of them, so I can’t turn to my good old human disposal to take care of them. And there are only so many of those bad boys my little guys will eat before boredom sets in and they start to turn up their noses at them.
So, rather than throw out the 6 or so stragglers that always seem to lurk in the back of my fridge this time of year, I went in search of some delicious dinner recipes that use them as ingredients. I can’t wait to make some of these dishes this week!
Smoked Ham & Green Beans w/Egg
My family and I have been creating meals from around the globe by following Sasha’s Global Table Adventure. I love the idea of using a sliced egg as a garnish on this yummy green bean, ham and rice dish from Liberia. I can use up both the extra ham AND the eggs. Bonus points!
This is one of my all-time favorite salads. Light yet satisfying. I order it virtually anytime I see it on a menu, but never make it on my own because I don’t usually have hard boiled eggs on hand. You can use canned tuna or freshly seared slices – both options are delicious.
Creamy Macaroni Salad
The hard-boiled eggs give this salad a creamy texture without the mayo.
Stuffed Chipoltle Meatballs
According to Health.com, the eggs in this dish, help add low-cal texture to the meatballs without altering their meaty flavor.
Petso & Egg Pizza
I never would have thought of topping a pizza with hard-boiled eggs on my own. But this recipe from Zoe looks tempting.
Kedgeree is an Indian-inspired British dish of eggs, fish, and rice. This looks like one of those rare dishes that could be comforting and light at the same time.
Flank Steak Braciole
I’d limit the number of times I served this Italian dish per year as it looks pretty heavy. But I know it certainly would be a hit with my carnivores.
