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.
The classic spinach salad, with homemade garlicky croutons, crisp bacon, and a warm sherry vinaigrette.
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.
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.
Serve this salad on a bed of lettuce or on toasted sandwich bread as a main course, or spoon it onto toasted pita triangles for an hors d'oeuvre.
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.
Hard-cooked eggs are an essential element of the classic Mediterranean Niçoise salad. Multicolored tomatoes and grilled fresh tuna fillet make this version especially gorgeous.
Here, the classic deviled egg filling is made even tastier with sweet crab, sherry, Worcestershire sauce and a hit of cayenne. Set these kicked-up nibbles on a platter at your next party and watch them disappear.
The "mimosa" here refers to hard-cooked eggs to add bright color and texture to a simple vinaigrette dressing on the lettuce.
If your eggs have picked up a little dye from their shells, here's a nifty way to disguise it in this delicious, can't-believe-it's-vegetarian mushroom-walnut spread.
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.
After eating these, you may never go back to your old deviled eggs recipe. To dress them up for a party, top each egg with a small dollop of salmon roe.
This classic version of creamy American potato salad combines Yukon Gold potatoes with onion, celery, hard-cooked eggs, and capers in a sour-cream dresing with Champagne vinegar. Create your own customized potato salad with the Recipe Maker.
