Easter brings beautifully colored and decorated Easter eggs. The joy of coloring, hiding, and the ever popular egg fights are tradition. But, as the holiday draws to a close, you are left wondering what to do with all those lovely hardboiled eggs languishing in your refrigerator.
Egg salad immediately comes to mind. Hard boiled eggs, salt, pepper, and a bit of mayo to bind it all together and a simple egg salad is born; could not be simpler. For a bit more exotic flavor, try adding curry powder, garlic powder, and a bit of onion powder to your usual egg salad mixture and serve on toasted onion rolls. Chopped apricots work really well in this type salad, and will make a simple boring egg salad into something special.
If egg salad is not your thing, how about a meatloaf made with ground beef or turkey and three or four chopped hardboiled eggs. Add your usual seasonings or simply combine with a box of ready to make stuffing and dinner could not be simpler. (Add a raw egg of two to bind all the ingredients together.)
Last but not least add a hardboiled egg or two to a packed lunch, this was common practice 50 years ago when lunch meats were rarely used. You might just like the simplicity of one of nature’s most perfect foods.
