Got leftover hard-cooked eggs after Easter? Here are a dozen delicious—sometimes surprising—ways to transform them into flavorful appetizers, satisfying dinner salads, and even a beautifully textured dessert.

  • Recipe

    Spinach Salad with Eggs, Bacon & Croutons

    The classic spinach salad, with homemade garlicky croutons, crisp bacon, and a warm sherry vinaigrette.

    Bacon & Smoked Paprika Deviled Eggs

    This bacon-and-egg combination is a sophisticated take on a classic appetizer. The bacon adds flavor as well as texture to the filling, and you can dial the hot sauce up or down for just the right amount of heat.

    Beef Picadillo

    A Latin American and Caribbean favorite, picadillo is a savory-sweet ground beef filling that’s delicious wrapped in lettuce leaves. It’s also good in tacos, quesadillas, and omelets.

    Pear-Cranberry Linzer Tart

    Here's the last place you'd expect to find hard-cooked eggs: a decadent tart. Crumbled, cooked yolks give the crust a super-tender, cakey quality.

    Steak, Egg & Blue Cheese Salad

    A surefire way to make a salad a meal: add steak. This one is simple yet elegant and plays with the classic pairing of steak and eggs. The garlicky vinaigrette adds a flavor boost that's just right.
