Another lame play on words, but I couldn’t help it.
The Easter festivities have gone for the year and here we sit with a basket of colorful hard-boiled eggs. Now what?! If you are anything like our family you’ve dyed more eggs than actually necessary, have eaten your fill of hard-boiled cackle berries and there’s still a pile of them looming in the fridge. Let me give you a few ideas to take care of these little “problems”.
*Pickled Eggs (of course this would make the top of my list).
Slice the egg in half. Carefully scoop out the yolk and place it in a bowl. Add some yellow mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Smash the yolks while mixing. Scoop the yolk mixture back into the whites. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.
There is lots of variations to these, try adding finely chopped bell peppers and/or onions, or cheese, or bacon, or chili peppers, or jalapeno’s.
*Deviled Pickled Eggs
Egg Gravy – Sounds a little odd but it’s really good.
I’m not ready to share my exact recipe for this but I will give you the list of ingredients.
Butter, Flour, Milk, Dried Mustard, Eggs, Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Onion over mashed potatoes.
*Egg Salad Sandwiches – I don’t like to get too fancy with these, why change what’s not broken?

Boiled Potatoes, cut into chunks, Hard-Boiled Eggs, Celery, Onions, Dill Pickles, Pimentos (optional), Yellow Mustard, Mayonnaise, Salt, Pepper, Vinegar (or use pickled eggs), Milk. Chop the eggs, celery, onions, pickles and pimentos. Combine the mustard, mayonnaise, salt, pepper vinegar and milk. Toss the vegetable in the mustard mixture,
*Dr.Suess Breakfast of Green Eggs and Ham (they may not taste any different but the kids will find eggs exciting for one more day.)
