Use ‘Em Up – Ideas for Leftover Hard-Boiled Eggs

As we approach the weekend, you may still have some eggs leftover from last week’s Easter festivities.  Time is running out to use them, so why not celebrate Egg Salad Week?!

Remember hard-boiled eggs (in their shell) should be used within 7 days of cooking.

Try this classic egg salad recipe, or have fun and create your own. Other ideas include:

  • Put the egg salad inside a vegetable “bowl,” like a tomato or bell pepper, for a fun way to serve it.
  • If you’d like a different twist on egg salad, here is one that uses avocado and tomato along with the hard-boiled egg.
  • Adding colorful food such as different vegetables to eggs is not only appealing; it adds even more vitamins and minerals to the meal.


Enjoy and remember to enjoy eggs as part of a balanced diet throughout the year!  See ENC’s MyPlate education materials for more information how to give eggs the company they deserve by pairing them with other nutritious foods.
