So Easter came and went. I hope everyone had a fabulouse time. I know we did. The kids woke us up about 7:30am, they were so excited to go easter egg hunting, we ended up locking them in our room with us until we were up and ready to go. Once the hunt was on it didn't take long for them to find them all. After that was over we did the normal going to church and then going to the grandparents for some more Easter egg hunts. I was lucky enought to find the $10 dollar egg. Yep thats right I got $10 hmmm at this moment all I am thinking about is buying some great tasting coffee with that money. LOL Anyways all was great.
This morning i realize I have a ton of leftover hardboiled eggs, which brings me to todays blog.....
After doing much research I have found 8 different ideas for your hard boiled eggs, I hope you can put some of them to use:
1. There is the usual egg salad sandwich
2. The egg salad salad (basically make the egg salad sanwich filling but put it on a bed of lettuce instead of bread
3. Use those eggs for part of cobb salad or any salad
4. you can make deviled eggs
5. potato and egg casserole
•6 medium potatoes, peeled
•1 cup (1/2 pint) sour cream
•1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream chicken soup
•1 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon pepper
•1/4 teaspoon curry powder
•4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
•1/2 cup soft bread crumbs, combined with
•1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Cook potatoes whole in boiling, salted water until tender. Drain. Slice about 1/4 inch thick.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine sour cream, chicken soup, salt, pepper, and curry powder.
Layer bottom of a 2 quart casserole with 1/3 of potato slices, then 1/3 egg slices, then 1/3 cream mixture. Repeat layering 2 more times.
Sprinkle bread crumb/cheese mixture over top. Bake, uncovered, in preheated 350° F oven about 30 minutes, or until heated through and browned on top.

6. Eat them plain for Breakfast, or a snack
7. Make potato salad
8. This one is a little different but totally worth a shot
Hard cooked egg cookies
Zest of 1 lemon + 1/2 tsp lemon extract
10 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter
4 hard cooked/boiled eggs, peeled
3 cups ap flour
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cream together lemon zest, lemon extract, sugar, salt and butter in a food processor. Add in hard boiled eggs and process until fully incorporated. Mix in egg. Add flour and pulse until dough just comes together.
At this point you can chill the dough for a bit if your kitchen is very hot, otherwise roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is 1/4 inch thick and cut into rounds with a 2 inch cookie or biscuit cutter. Dip the cut cookies into the egg white then dredge in the sugar. Arrange on baking sheet - cookies will not spread - and bake until just beginning to brown at the edges, about 12 minutes.
Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Makes 4 dozen.
