Hey guys! Anyone else have a plethora of leftover Easter eggs this morning? Then this post about hard boiled egg recipes is for you (well for me, too, but I figured I’d share the wealth). I adore hard boiled eggs and make them pretty regularly as a quick snack or protein component for a meal. So naturally, it’s one of my favorite traditions connected to Easter! Growing up, though, I feel like whatever leftover hard boiled eggs we didn’t eat plain, we’d just make into egg salad sandwiches. Which again – are delicious! But I can only eat so many.
So, I asked around and wanted to share some delicious hard boiled egg recipes I found to help us all use our leftover Easter eggs!
Erica Julson, RD reminded me that hard boiled eggs go great on salads. Try her version of one of my favorite salads, her California Cobb Salad, or go a little meatier with her Blue Cheese Steak Salad.
Chelsey Amer, RD definitely puts my childhood egg salad sandwiches to shame with this super creative Healthy Tuna Nicoise Stuffed Baked Potatoes. They’re delicious, balanced with a variety of foods, and a great frugal meal, too!
Really loving the tuna + egg combo? Try Chelsey’s Spinach, Egg White, and Tuna Salad – quite an efficient and tasty hard boiled egg recipe!
One of my favorite, and I think one of the most creative hard boiled egg recipes that I’ve seen has got to be these Eggs in Spicy and Saucy Tomato Curry from Roxana Begum, PhD, RD. This is a beautiful dish that looks like it’s just bursting with flavor and nutrition – definitely give this South Indian recipe a try!
And of course, I also have to include deviled eggs! These seem to be the most popular way to use up leftover hardboiled eggs. But don’t worry – the variety and options go so much further past the deviled eggs with or without relish varieties I remember from my youth (for the record, I will forever be on team no relish). Check out these recipes below to see a variety of deviled egg recipes that use unique ingredients like avocado, cheese, fresh herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, and more.
Amanda Hernandez, RD offers these Lightened Up Deviled Eggs full of flavor with sun-dried tomatoes and less mayo.
Julie Harrington, RD made these yummy Cheesy Deviled Eggs - with a cheese crisp, too! She doesn't use just any cheese though, these eggs are going to be full of flavor!
If you're watching your sodium, try one of these three delicious flavorings (smoky, curry, or garden herb), all salt-free, from the ladies behind Kidney Grub: Crazy Good Deviled Egg Variations for Kidney Disease
Kelli Shallal, MPH, RD made these delicious Healthy Deviled Eggs - she uses an ingredient instead of mayo that is brilliant, and I cannot wait to try! (spoiler alert: it's NOT Greek yogurt, I don't think I ever would have thought of it!)
Tawnie Kroll, RDN created these Easy Avocado Deviled Eggs that remind me of a beautiful deviled egg-guacamole hybrid (and I mean that in the best way possible!!). These definitely looked packed full of flavor, and I think I need to try some ASAP!
Whitney English, CPT and aspiring dietitian, made some Guacamole Deviled Eggs that have an awesome Southwestern flair! I definitely don't think anyone will miss the mayo here! And bonus - if you're obsessed with short food videos like I am, check the recipe video on her site!
Which of these recipes are you going to try first? Do you guys have any other must-make hard boiled egg recipes I need to try? We made a LOT of Easter eggs! 😉 Be well!
