16 Creative Ways to Use Up All of Those Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs

After Easter comes and goes, you’re typically left with dozens of leftover hard boiled eggs you need to use before they go bad (remember *all* those DIY Galaxy Eggs you made?). While hard boiled eggs are great as a simple afternoon snack, there are only so many days you can eat them before you’re just plain egged out. First step? Whip up a batch of these deep fried deviled eggs. After you recover from that flavor explosion, you’ll need to get peeling so you can use the rest of the batch ASAP for one (or more!) of the 16 recipes below. Scroll on to see how you can make delicious and unique use of all of the hard boiled eggs you have lying around.

1. Asparagus Gribiche: By separating the yolks and whites from your hard boiled eggs, you can create different flavors and textures in your dish. This asparagus uses the yolks as an emulsifier for a tangy sauce that’s drizzled over the slender vegetable. Then, the whites are chopped and sprinkled on top for an elegant finish. (via The Wimpy Vegetarian)

2. Avocado, Corn and Herb Egg Tartines: Think of this dish as a light and mayo-less egg salad. The fresh corn and avocado make it a perfect warm-weather lunch when served on crunchy grilled bread. (via Kale and Caramel)

3. Barley, Smoked Paprika Red Potatoes and Hard Boiled Egg: Talk about a healthy and hearty meal. The barley and potatoes will keep you full for hours, and the egg will give you all the protein you need to get through the afternoon. The pungent bite of blue cheese adds an extra flavor that ties everything together. (via Naturally Ella)

4. Red Berry Salad With Hard Boiled Egg and Raspberry Vinaigrette: If all other options fail, adding a hard boiled egg to your salad is a no-brainer. They go particularly well with this salad that’s studded with berries and avocado. (via Drool Worthy Daily)

5. Cauliflower Spicy Turmeric Soup With Crispy Kale: This soup packs numerous health benefits with major flavor payoff. Once you consume the combination of creamy soup and egg with crispy kale, all other meals will pale in comparison. (via Biohackers Recipes)

6. Danish Dirty Eggs: This dish is nothing more than hard boiled eggs sitting on top of a savory mustard-onion sauce, with plenty of dark rye bread to soak it all up. As simple as it is, the flavors together are out of this world. (via 10th Kitchen)

7. Eggs Goldenrod: This simple recipe should be your new weekend tradition. Mix chopped egg whites into a quick gravy and pour over a stack of wheat toast. Top with crumbled yolks and parsley for a quick way to repurpose those eggs. (via Simple, Sweet and Savory)

8. Sabich: Sabich is an Israeli street food consisting of a charred pita filled with eggplant and hard boiled eggs. Those two fillings are a constant, but whatever else you wish to add is your prerogative (hummus, maybe?). (via I Will Not Eat Oysters)

9. Kale and Ricotta Breakfast Pizza: No need to feel guilty about eating this pizza for breakfast. An ultra-thin crust is topped with ricotta, kale, turkey bacon and hard boiled eggs for a well-balanced meal that will please the masses. (via Bacon Egg Cheesecake)

10. Lettuce Cups With Spiced Corn, Danish Feta and Hard Boiled Eggs: Since your eggs are already boiled and waiting to be used, these lettuce cups require no cooking whatsoever. Take advantage of the farmer’s market and pick up some fresh corn and cucumber to add an organic brightness to the dish. (via Two Loves Studio)

11. Matambre: Argentinian Stuffed Flank Steak: This recipe goes *way* beyond the standard use of hard boiled eggs. In this authentic Argentinian stuffed flank steak, hard boiled eggs are mixed in with garlic, herbs and bell peppers. You’ll want to fire up the grill ASAP. (via Jo Cooks)

12. Mayo-Free Deviled Eggs: Many people consider deviled eggs a hard “no” because of their prominent mayo flavor. Greek yogurt saves the day as the creamy component in these mayo-free deviled eggs. A zest of lime and paprika cuts down some of the inevitable richness that deviled eggs contain. (via Give Recipe)

13. Mixed Greens Salad With Egg, Avocado and Creamy Lemon-Dill Dressing: Sometimes a huge salad just hits the spot, and this is one that will leave you feeling more than satisfied. Hard boiled eggs beef up the protein factor, but the lemon-dill salad dressing is what will have you coming back for more. (via Bowl of Delicious)

14. Portugese Pizza: There are so many incentives to make your own pizza at home, the main one being that you can add whatever ingredients on top that you wish. Really, what pizza place has hard boiled eggs as a topping option? This Portuguese-style pizza also includes salty ham and olives for an original ‘za you’ll crave weekly. (via Olivia’s Cuisine)

15. Skinny Scotch Eggs: Scotch eggs are known for being a very indulgent treat. This skinny version takes the fat down a bit by using turkey sausage and baking them in the oven. You certainly don’t lose any of the classic flavor this way, and the texture is perfectly crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. (via Petite Canteen)

16. Spicy Egg Curry: Hard boiled eggs tend to take the backseat to other ingredients in a dish, but not anymore. They’re the main attraction of this wildly spiced Indian curry. Try serving on top of rice or naan for a complete meal. (Messy Kitchen Stories)
