The downside to all those beautifully colored Easter eggs on the day -- or even the afternoon -- after your egg hunt is all those leftover hard boiled eggs.

Finding some easy egg recipes is the key to eating those up, and this simple egg salad recipe with mushrooms and onions fits the bill nicely. It's one of the tastiest Easter egg recipes you'll find.

How to Make This Recipe for Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 4 to 6 Hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 c. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 c. chopped onion
  • 1/3 c. olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp plain yogurt or sour cream
  • Salt, black pepper, garlic granules

Instructions:

  1. Chop up the eggs so that they're suitable for an egg salad sandwich recipe.
  2. Add the sour cream and the spices to the egg mixture.
  3. Fry the onions and mushrooms in a skillet. Drain.
  4. Pour the mushrooms and onions into the eggs and stir together.
  5. While you fry the mushrooms, put your bread in the toaster.
  6. Serve this on the toast when the toast is done.
  7. Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro.

Tips for Serving the Simple Egg Salad Recipe:

  • If you're making egg recipes for kids, try this on the whole wheat toast instead of the rye, because many kids don't like the flavor of rye.
  • Ditto for the parsley. Kids don't like green food as a general rule, so don't garnish it if they don't like it.
  • Serve with mushroom soup for a complete meal.
