After the Easter hunt is over, turn your hard-cooked eggs into sandwiches, deviled eggs and more! Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy holiday leftovers.
|Beet and Watercress Salad with Farm Eggs
For this salad, seek out local farm eggs, which have the richest flavor and most vibrant yolk color. Peppery watercress is a good foil to the sweet, earthy flavor of beets.
|Garlic Aioli with Garden Vegetables
A silky aioli with crisp garden vegetables and hard-boiled eggs makes the ultimate spring or summer appetizer.
|Egg Salad Sandwiches
For many of us, an egg salad sandwich was a childhood favorite. But you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy this creamy, comforting salad, served between thick bread slices with a leaf of butter lettuce for crunch.
|Smoked Salmon on Toast Points
Transform leftovers into an elegant hors d’oeuvre! Assemble the toast points on a platter, or set out all the ingredients and let guests make their own.
|Chopped Salad with Broccoli, Egg and Radicchio
Hard-boiled eggs add protein and heft to salads like this one. If the flavor of raw broccoli is too strong for you, blanch the florets for a few minutes, then put them in ice water to halt the cooking.
A big platter of deviled eggs, stuffed with an herb-flecked, fluffy, creamy filling, can round out countless comfort-food menus.
|Classic Salade Niçoise
This classic salad of Nice, France stars haricots verts, along with boiled potatoes, hard-cooked eggs and lettuce. Olive oil-packed tuna and nicoise olives make it a hearty main course.
|Albacore Tuna, Hard-Cooked Egg and Tapenade Sandwiches
This combination of tuna, eggs, anchovies and olives recalls pain bagnat, a sandwich sold on the streets of the south of France. They’re best made ahead, so the flavors can meld together.
|Shredded Kale Salad with Pancetta and Hard-Cooked Egg
Shredding and blanching kale for a salad softens its sturdy texture but keeps it crunchy enough to support hearty, heavier ingredients like hard-cooked eggs and pancetta.
|Celery & Herb Salad with Hard-Boiled Eggs & Anchovy Vinaigrette
This refreshingly crisp and flavorful salad would be lovely served with grilled fish or chicken, but it can also be paired with a crusty baguette for a light lunch.
Cobb salad is a classic favorite that has stuck around for good reason. With eggs, turkey, bacon and blue cheese, there’s plenty to love (and it’s a great way to use up all kinds of leftovers)!
