easter eggs

Easter weekend is just around the corner! Do you ever ask yourself, what will I ever do with all these leftover eggs? I found myself asking this question just this morning, as I dyed eggs with my kids. In preparation for the leftovers, I dug up some of my favorite leftover easter egg recipes. Here's what I found:

6 Leftover Easter Egg Recipes 

From classic deviled eggs to Ramen, we have 6 recipes with hard boiled eggs that will leave you feeling full and satisfied that you aren't letting those easter eggs go to waste. 

Deviled Eggs 

Deviled eggs are a long time favorite and perfect as an appetizer or side dish. Plus, it doesn't matter how many eggs you have, this recipe can easily be altered. 

  1. Start by removing the shell from your hard boiled eggs. Gently slice them in half. 
  2. Remove the yellow yolk and collect them a separate bowl. 
  3. Combine the yolks with a little scoop of mayo and mustard. You can adjust the amounts depending on your flavor preference. Add a dash of salt and mix until smooth. 
  4. Using a cake decorating bag or plastic sandwich bag with a corner cut out, pipe the yolk mixture into your egg halves. 
  5. Sprinkle the eggs halves with paprika and enjoy! 

Deviled eggs aren't just tasty—they're a nutritional powerhouse! Packed with protein, vitamins like A, D, E, and B12, plus essential minerals such as phosphorus, selenium, and iron, they're a satisfying and wholesome snack option. So, next time you're craving something savory, consider reaching for deviled eggs—they're not just delicious, they're nutritious too!

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Egg salad sandwiches are the perfect leftover easter eggs recipe. Like the deviled eggs, this recipe can be easily adjusted for just one sandwich, or for a handful of sandwiches. The recipe we have here is for one sandwich. 


  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 slices bread


  1. In a small bowl, combine the chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, and mustard. Mix well until everything is evenly combined.

  2. Season the egg salad with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference.

  3. Spread the egg salad mixture evenly onto one slice of bread. Place the other slice of bread on top to form a sandwich. Slice the sandwich in half if desired, and serve immediately.
